EMPOWERED and SISTAH SPOOKY's DIRTY PAIR cosplay by AdamWarren EMPOWERED and SISTAH SPOOKY's DIRTY PAIR cosplay by AdamWarren
Behold, a sketch of Emp and Sistah Spooky* from Empowered, my "sexy superhero comedy" series published by Dark Horse Comics. Per a request, they're dressed in the "smartsuits" I designed for Kei and Yuri in my miniseries Dirty Pair: Run from the Future. Note that Spooky isn't kidding about the fact that the costume she wears in the Empowered comics...

...is derived in part (the opera gloves, hot pants, garters and stockings) from a old variant outfit I drew for Kei and Yuri:


Anyhoo, the newest installment of Empowered, vol. 7, is now on sale at your Local Comics Retailer Store and/or conventional bookstore, and is also available in digital form via the Dark Horse Digital Store [link] and on Barnes & noble's Nook: [link]
More info here: [link]



Anyhoo, if you've read the book and care to weigh in on the experience, feel free to leave a comment here, in a SPOILER ALERT zone: [link]

And now, further floggery: Empowered vol. 7 can be found at your Local Comics Retailer (or bookstore, possibly), or online at Dark Horse's retail website [link] or on Amazon.com [link] .

Say, here's Empowered vol. 7's cover, without the logo:



And here's the book's back-cover copy:

While costumed crimefighter Empowered makes a startling discovery regarding her unfortunate status as an all-too-frequent "damsel in distress," her hard-drinking best friend Ninjette confronts her own sordid past, violent present and frighteningly uncertain future as she fights a desperate, single-handed battle against a entire clan of supernaturally durable ninja warriors. Can our two hard-luck heroines also withstand the further perils posed by supervillainous minivans, dueling sets of "daddy issues," doomed-but-still-hot boyfriends, undead karaoke party-crashers, and even "spoiler alerts from hell itself" voiced by diabolically omniscient demonspawn?

In closing, I must of course paste in the requisite general-purpose Emp-related floggery: Print copies of Empowered's first six 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 Amazon.com [link] . All the existing Empowered books can be purchased rather more cheaply in digital form as well, via the Dark Horse Digital store: [link]

*And, lest we forget, Thugboy is (theoretically) cosplaying as the Lovely Angels' feline sidekick Mughi.

That costume must be glued on. XD

I love your work. You're quite skilled. The faces look goofy, and I'm sure are meant to be, but that hardly detracts.

This is all kinds of awesome! I loved these alternate costumes for DP. Makes me wonder what Kei and Yuri would have to say about cosplaying Emp and 'Jette...

I LOVE THIS! Given recent incidents in the story, any chance of Emp & Spooky ever being partnered-up D.P style?

I think that those "Opera gloves & Hot pants" variant costumes are INSANELY hot! Maybe it has something to do with combining a very formal and high-class item (opera gloves) with a very informal one (Hot pants)... I don't know, but I like it. Reminds me of those J.M. Lisner pin-ups of girls in opera gloves and jeans.

Total Enjoy when it comes to your incredible graphite work, Mr. Warren.

You've just combined my two favorite titles from you in one sweet package. So will Emp get all freaked out over using the "Hypno-Butt?" Emp's butt is plenty hypnotic to Thugboy and the rest of us, anyway. Thanks for this awesome crossover.

I really thought that cosplay of Kei and Yuri would have been best suited for Ninjette and F-ing Oyuki-chan. I've always thought that Oyuki-chan reminded me of the young Kei design anyways, and good ole 'Jette already has the penchant for cosplay and the long dark hair.

That's the whole schtick with EMP, though.  Girl has such self-image issues that she'd crack if they outfitted her in a burqa ("It's too tight!  They can still see by fat ████ing ass on here!").

Another cheesecake photo of a humiliated, unhappy EMP.

How refreshingly original

Oh it looks great, as always. Not knocking the art quality at all. but EMP is becoming a one-trick pony. You can only play the awkward card so much before it becomes stale.

That's why her attitude is addressed in the new volume.

All these mentions of pants, stockings, and garters makes me want to see Emp and Friends drawn in the style of Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. :lol:

My personal desires aside: great work on this pic. :D

Damn, purchased the new volume in digital format and wanted to digest it slowly on the train whilst being on my way to work. Sadly my car broke down on the way to the station so it has to wait until the evening or next week. Stupid car.
