The thrilling second issue of AC’s smashingly successful new FULL COLOR Femforce title, SUPERBABES; will be coming your way in October, 2019!!
Anyone who knows anthing about The FEMFORCE is aware of the fact that in addition to being intelligent, talented and supremely-skilled crimefighters, the team is made up of six beautiful, unique and glamorous women. SUPERBABES #2 will pit the Ms. VICTORY, NIGHTVEIL, SHE-CAT, SYNN, TARA and STARDUST against two of their most grotesque (not to mention dangerously powerful) distaff foes whose joining of forces MAY portend far worse villainy yet to come!!
WAMPYR came into the AC Universe as a vampire with great skills in the Black Arts, originally vanquished and destroyed millenia ago but accidentally reanimated and brought into the present by NIGHTVEIL herself. After a long, ongoing storyline (that culminated in the sold-out FEMFORCE #170), the simultaneous application of a magical spell of permanence AND the synesthrophic physical alteration of her skull left her with the body of a “normal” (albeit undead) woman and the head of a GIANT BEE! Subdued by the FF, she had been imprisoned at the enigmatic Colorado Complex while the technicians there studied her bizarre condition.
GORGANA actually predates AC Comics itself, having made her first appearance in THE VERY FIRST FEMFORCE story EVER PUBLISHED in Bill Black’s Paragon Publications’ Femzine #1, released in 1980. This bizarre , three-eyed creature with the ability to temporarily paralyze any male AND impersonate any female has been intermittently bedeviling NIGHTVEIL, The FEMFORCE team, and various and sundry members of the AC Universe ever since. Recently, a GORGANA scheme to siphon the energies of the FF’s ally FIREBEAM went afoul, which allowed the FF to pack HER off into protective custody at the Colorado Complex as well.
Can we be SUPRISED that these two gals, united by their hideous deformaties, antisocial tendancies and hatred of The FEMFORCE became FAST FRIENDS within the confines of the Colorado Complex Maximum Security Detention Center? Once they manage to break out and win their freedom, is anyone anywhere safe? Find out in SUPERBABES #2, in “Heads I Win, Tails You Ooze” written by Mark and Stephanie Heike, with art by Javier Lugo and Jeff Austin, and colors by Stephanie Heike.
As a special bonus (and a thank-you to all the loyal FF readers who bought SUPERBABES #1). Superbabes #2 will come with a special alternate cover offer. ‘Way back in the early 1990’s, a young artist did a few FEMFORCE stories for AC Comics. He also did a cover on spec; a huge and impressive oversized painting of the FF’s magical maiden, NIGHTVEIL. Due to the limits of printing technology (and budgetary considerations related to same) at the time, it was never used. AC comics and the young artist went in different directions, and drifted out of touch. In the intervening years, that artist came to have no small measure of success, not only in the world of comics , but on the covers of many other general interest and mass-market publications and commercial art applications world-wide. That artist’s name is Greg Horn, and Greg is allowing AC Comics to finally publish that NIGHTVEIL painting as an alternate cover to Superbabes #2.
Superbabes #2 will ship packed in a 4:1 ratio of standard Johannes Vick, Mark and Stephanie Heike FEMFORCE design A “regular” covers to special painted Greg Horn NIGHTVEIL design B “alternate”cover. That means that out of every FIVE copies of this book that are shipped, ONE will feature a special GREG HORN painted cover design at no extra cost!!. So if you want to be certain that you get a copy of the Greg Horn cover SUPERBABES #2, make sure your retailer orders FIVE COPIES of the issue, and have him set aside that alternate cover version for you.
Be sure to tell your retailer to order SUPERBABES#2 from the August 2019 issue of Diamond’s Previews catalog, for items shipping in October. SUPERBABES #2- great “good girl” art and superheroic action in FULL COLOR, digitally printed on glossy stock, for $5.95, from AC Comics.
