EMPOWERED DELUXE cover inks by AdamWarren EMPOWERED DELUXE cover inks by AdamWarren
I'm buried alive by other Emp work at the moment, so I'll keep this short: Here are the inks from the cover of Empowered Deluxe Edition vol. 1, collecting the first three volumes in a big, bold, 712-page $59.99 hardcover printed on pretty, pretty paper and including 40-odd pages of bonus material (including the very earliest prototype versions of Empowered, which even most of the folks on the Top-Secret Emp E-mailing List have never seen).

More info here: [link]

Say, does $59.99 sound too rich for your blood? Well, for this week only, you can get ALL of Empowered—that's all six volumes, plus the one-shots The Wench with a Million Sighs and 10 Questions for the Maidman—as a digital-form "megabundle" from Dark Horse Digital for only $34.99! More info here: [link]

Note that something apparently went wrong with Emp's original facial expression from the penciled version, as seen here: [link] I switched from a goofy, toothy smile to a default "pouty-lipped" Emp, for reasons presently unclear to me. I might try to fix this before publication, for whatever that's worth; time's a bit short, though, as I'm simultaneously grinding away at Emp vol. 7 and drawing the cover for Empowered Deluxe Edition vol. 2.

Anyhoo, next up will be the colors.

Excuse me I just pre-ordered this through amazon and I was wondering what the format of the book was going to be. Is it going to be manga format or is it going to be bigger?

Oops the regular ones are bigger than manga format (about octavo I think). What I meant is it gonna be bigger than that.

The deluxe edition looks really atractive for me, especially as I haven't been able to get the first 3 volumes (they tend to fly off the shelves reall quick as they restock.)

Hmm... this might sound odd but I actually liked the penciled version better, perhaps for its.... softness?

Awesome. Personally, I like the smile version better, so I hope you get the time to change it. Either way -- it still gets bought!

Well, there's always a chance to do a toothy grin for the next cover or the cover for volume 7...or your next one shot, if things went well with the last one :3
I think this looks great, a group shot like this just shows all of the personalities you have in your series X3

Ive noticed on the colored cover-art from the DH website, that, while all the other characters in the background are dimmed noticably from Emp, Major Havoc; while his mask looks to be at 80% black, the outline to his eyes are at 100%/the same black as Emp is outlined. Is that meant to be that way? Just wondering. o.O

wow, i love the series but 60 bulks is a bit much. at my comic shop i was able to get each volume for $10 on release day. so 30 for the 3volumes and 30 for bonus material? no offense but that's a bit pricey.

Oh, and I do hope you manage to change it back to the grin. I'm not a big fan of pouty lips (though I get why others are.XD) I find Emp to be sexier when she has that rare smile of confidence and badassitude.:D

Despite the serious lack of Willy Pete on this cover, I think this is one of the most awesome things I've ever seen.:D Though I'm not shure if I can justify buying the 3 first volumes again, even if I get 40 bonuspages too.:P I guess we'll see how much money I have when it comes out.:-)

Now I don't envy your pen. :)

Sweet inks. In all honesty, the pout looks fine for the cover, you'll have tons of opportunities to give goofy grins in the issue itself.

Keep up the sexy.
