EMPOWERED montage-ish pencil llustration by AdamWarren EMPOWERED montage-ish pencil llustration by AdamWarren
Behold, a montage(-ish) illo showing the varying faces of Elissa Megan Powers, the eponymous heroine of my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy" series Empowered, published by Dark Horse Comics. In no particular order, we see: Emp, weatring her all-too-often-tattered "supersuit"; 4-year-old Emp, happily leaping down staircases with a blanket for a cape; Emp cosplaying as "Schrödinger's Catgirl" (in both living and nonliving incarnations), as imagined by her boyfriend; young Emp, clutching her beloved stuffed animal Mellow Mr. Monkey; grown-up Emp cosplaying as the "Sexy Librarian"*; and, at center, toothbrushing Emp at the moment she discovered the aforementioned supersuit. Wheeee!

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 [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 [link] . All the existing Empowered books can be purchased rather more cheaply in digital form as well, via the Dark Horse Digital store: [link]

*As first seen circa Empowered vol.2, in this illo:

Need one for Ninjette and Thugboy, please sir. This is a really good idea; I thought for a second this was the cover for Volume 8.

This looks like the meta-page for a chapter, or even a cover illo.

A sweet tribute to the most put-upon heroine out of all the capes. Thanks for putting the sexy librarian pose up at the forefront.

Nice way of summing up the important points in the character development. This will probably have non-readers curious to pick up a volume or two.
