EMPOWERED DELUXE EDITION vol.2 cover, front + back by AdamWarren EMPOWERED DELUXE EDITION vol.2 cover, front + back by AdamWarren
Two weeks earlier than originally scheduled(!), August 15th* sees the release of Empowered Deluxe Edition Vol. 2, which collects volumes 4 through 6 of of my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy" series Empowered in a big, bold, brawny, 656-page $59.99 hardcover printed on pretty, pretty paper (and including a fair chunk of bonus material): [link]

Anyhoo, here we see the full "wraparound" for the hardcover, consisting of back cover, spine, and front cover.
Glorious colors on the front cover illo by ~GURU-eFX, line art by me, as seen in B&W here:

Say, here's a thumbnail for an Empowered Deluxe Edition Vol. 2 page—

—in which the inimitable Caged Demonwolf introduces the book's bountiful "Mega Extras" bonus section, which does indeed feature a whole bunch of Emp-related work that few have ever seen, not even the folks on the nigh-legendary Top-Secret Emp E-mailing List. (That is, sketches, unpublished stories, design roughs, layout pages, work stages, color guides, page-by-page annotations, etc.)

As mentioned earlier, this weighty new tome will hit the shelves of your Local Comics Retailer August 15th, and be available in conventional bookstores some time after that. Alternatively, you can preorder it from Dark Horses's online retail site here (for 20% off): [link]

Note that Empowered Deluxe Edition Vol. 1, which collects volumes 1-3, as seen below: already on sale at your Local Comics Retailer or bookstore, in theory at least, or can be ordered online from Dark Horse: [link] or Amazon: [link]

In closing, I must of course paste in the requisite general-purpose Emp-related floggery: Print copies of Empowered's first seven volumes (and a pair of one-shots in comics format) can be found on the shelves of your Local Comics Retailer or bookstore, or online at Dark Horse's retail website [link] or on [link] .

All the existing Empowered books can be purchased rather more cheaply in digital form as well, via the Dark Horse Digital store: [link] Note, however, that these Empowered Deluxe Editions will remain a "print-only" proposition, alas.

*I'm told that the book shipped in an unusually speedy fashion from the printer overseas, which conjures forth unlikely images of Empowered Deluxe-laden cigarette boats tearing across the Pacific at high speeds.

Please please please post the cover image without the title and words over it, like you did with the first Deluxe edition. ...please? :D

OOF... I'm saddened to admit that I never noticed that error. Good catch! (Too bad I can't do anything to fix said error, alas.)

Hrrm, saw the twitter feed. I am suitably embarrassed. :ashamed: ANYway, that certainly explains the hair color. (And the supranym.)

Is it just me or is EMP totally camel toeing it on this cover?

I am BEHOLDING, and I couldn't be happier to see yet another Adam Warren book to buy! And how could I not when I can't stop staring at EMP's carefully sketched nether region. The inking make an optical illusion, most pleasant, that suggests she's not sporting the metallic wool. BEHOLD INDEED JACKANAPES!!
