Empowered Special #3: Hell Bent or Heaven Sent

By Adam Warren & Ryan Kinnaird

If you’re new to iFanboy, you haven’t heard me rave about Empowered. If you’ve been here a while, you know that I adore this series. Smart, funny and beautiful all in the same package. These smaller specials are just enough to make me even more impatient for the next volume, but with Empowered, I’ll take what I can get because it’s one of the best titles on the racks.

JSA: The Liberty Files – The Whistling Skull #1

By B. Clay Moore and Tony Harris

Let us lay aside this business with Tony Harris and Facebook, and talk about the book itself. This is a book that’s been in the hopper for a long time, with a great deal of sweat and tears contributed from Moore and Harris. Plus, and this is key, it looks wonderful. Tony Harris is well known for snapping photos of his subjects and drawing from that. This time, he’s just straight up drawing, and you can see the joy in his pencils. I believe there’s also Nazi punching.

Django Unchained #1

By Quentin Tarantino & R.M. Guera

I’m very excited for Django Unchained. I love almost all of Quentin Tarantino’s films, I love westerns, and I love the cast. When I heard that DC Comics was going to adapt the full, unabridged screenplay through its Vertigo line my reaction was, “Okay, whatever.” That’s generally my reaction to every licensed book announcement. But then I heard that Scalped‘s R.M. Guera was going to adapt the screenplay and my hears perked up like a dog who just heard the scurrying of a rabbit through the brush. Now I will definitely be picking this one up. (After the film comes out, of course! I don’t want to ruin it!)

Comments

  1. I’ll be getting me some of that good ole JSA action!

  2. I just got into Empowered with buying the first volume through the Dark Horse Digital App. Its excellent stuff.

    More Liberty Files is also welcome news.

    I am so damned conflicted about the JSA book. B. Clay has a great handle on them and I love the Liberty Files concept. Damnit, Tony.

    • Ah! But can B. Clay Moore replace & do a good enough job to what Dan Jolley did? I hope so especially since reading an interview with Tony Harris a few months back their plans are rather grand for this series, with hopefully a sum total of 60 issues split out over multiple mini’s!
