EMPOWERED 2 face-kickin' page by AdamWarren EMPOWERED 2 face-kickin' page by AdamWarren
As we draw ever closer to the Oct. 3rd 9th release of the second volume of EMPOWERED, my "sexy superhero comedy" published by Dark Horse Comics, I thought I'd post another page tonight.

Specifically, here's a page delivering 100% of your Recommended Daily Allowance of witless minions getting face-kicked by scantily clad heroines! (Hope you'll pardon the slightly crappy repro on this sucker, as I had to level-tweak a low-res, 120dpi version of the page.)

Unlike EMPOWERED vol. 1, the new volume features a fair bit more in the way of action sequences; the story from which this is excerpted features a rather long scene of ill-fated goons getting their hapless behinds duly kicked.

For the time being, you can see a 10-page preview from EMPOWERED vol. 2 at Publishers' Weekly: [link]

As for EMPOWERED 2, you can preorder the book from your local comics retailer or bookstore (heck, even my local Barnes & Noble briefly stocked EMPOWERED vol. 1, albeit in the jumbled hellscape of the regular comics section, as opposed to the orderly paradise of the manga section)... or you can order it from DH online at:

...or from Amazon. com at:

And if you'd care to see Emp "undercover" as the least subtle Sexy Librarian ever drawn (as seen in EMP vol. 2!), you can always check:

Damn... I remember all those years ago when you did that Basic Training for manga in Wizard... I learned so much about anime/manga perspective from that article. Not to mention the Dirty Pair comics. I had been wondering what you were up to all the time between. And it's very satisfying and good to see that you (not to mention your art and your characters) are still kicking massive ass.

No few of my teenage years of art owe themselves entirely to you. I bow to you, sir. :worship:

Your right about the comics being messier and harder to find than the manga.
I work in a book store, and we play hell to keep the manga section neat, it's even harder to keep up with the comics! They are so heavy and they always want to lean into each other so customers can't lift the falling stacks to put the comics back when they're through, so they just thow them on top. I don't blame them though, they are heavy when they do that!

Anyway, I can't wait for the next comic to come out in September! I can see it's going to be as entertaining as the first (or dare I say, better?)

Does the depiction of hot looking near naked women beating up men somehow make up for the guilt of ogling a member of the victim class in a humiliating state of undress? Or since this kind of thing seems so popular with men, is it just part of some vicarious male masochistic fetish? Or both perhaps?

Speaking strictly for myself, the answers to your three questions would be, respectively: "No," "no," and "hell, no." Others males may answer differently, however.

Yes she still hasn't learned the first basic lesson of B&E.

Break before you Enter.

A little "vorping" on the glass could probably save her suit alot of shredding. Surprised thug-boy hasn't pointed that one out yet.

Nice to see that even with her suit all torn up, Emp still proves to be a proficient ass-kicker. Clearly, she's getting better at this whole superheroine thing (positive reinforcement helps, I suppose).

BTW, I recently picked up "Empowered" Vol. 1 at Border's. I must say, brilliant artwork and excellent stories (in spite of a few seemingly gratuitous sex scenes, but hey, I guess even supers need to get some once in a while).

She kicks well too...that last panel is really authentic looking, not that I'm a martial arts master or anything but it just makes more sense for someone to kick with their heel than their toes or something. It makes Emp look like she really knows what she's doing.

I can't wait to see the whole fight...and what she's fighting for. I imagine she's probably off to rescue Thugboy or something...that seems to be the one thing that can really get her to do something hardcore.
