EMPOWERED cosplaying as Gurren Lagann's YOHKO by AdamWarren EMPOWERED cosplaying as Gurren Lagann's YOHKO by AdamWarren
Behold, a pencil sketch of Emp, the eponymous heroine of my "sexy superhero comedy" series Empowered, cosplaying as Yohko from the Gainax anime Gurren Lagann. Woo hoo!

Unrelated, but here's a recent sketch of Emp in civilian clothes:


So, 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]



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]

Y'know, I'm actually somewhat surprised Emp doesn't seem to mind this outfit, all things considered.

Really cute character.
In fact, if i'm not mistaken, you have a main girl heroin in your pictures drawn in different versions and styles.
Your style is very nice.

At least we know she won't up and abandon all of her closest friends with no contact of any kind and even hiding the fact that she helped bring humanity back to the surface.

Emp and Yoko--two great tastes that taste great together. That'll make Thugboy want to dress as Kamina and pierce her heavens with his drill. Of course, she'd also look great as the timeskip version of Yoko as a bespectacled teacher. Excellent cosplay.
