For comics fans who also go nuts any time MST3k is referenced, the latest one shot for Adam Warren's acclaimed Empowered series features a character named Dr. Big McLarge Huge.  Also will be drawn by the even more acclaimed Brandon Graham.  I've been meaning to read Prophet, which I hear is phenomenal.

I think that character has control of her hair. Superhero comics are weird.

She does, but even still, it doesn't really make sense.

Also not making sense: How she made the cover? Even if they just wanted a female character, she's surely not in the top twenty to choose from?

Yeah on the 'not making sense', because how she says what she does - on a book about exercise - suggests that 'hair getting pulled' is an exercise.

With her getting on the cover, it may be that they couldn't afford the licensing fees for anyone 'better', or that other characters they may have wanted were already licensed exclusively to other companies for their 'whatevers'.  [As, even though Marvel owns the copyright, because of the way their financial properties were arranged, sometimes they had to effectively license from themselves for anything outside of character use in comics.  I remember that coming up a few decades ago with something else but I can't recall what.]  Either that, or they simply wanted to increase the Inhumans' profile, as that looks like an early 70s book (when the Inhumans were in Amazing Adventures).

Got this for Christmas and read it this weekend.

FANTASTIC!  Don't be fooled by the understated cover, this book is an explosion of colour, panels and dynamism.  Based on a script from Jim Henson, this is basically an experimental film in comic form.  But don't let that scare you away: it is experimental, but it is also insanely fun.  It has elements of looney toons, silent film (there is dialogue, but it is kept to a minimum) and just plain fun.  It also has a lot of dreamlike and nightmarish elements (though I certainly wouldn't describe it as scary) and though I would also like to see it as a movie, artist Ramon Perez makes it his own, rather than simply making it a more lush storyboard, taking full advantage of the medium.  Definitely check it out.  It's a fast read but it is cool.

I have it, but I don't think I've read it yet - must get to that.
