EMPOWERED's Thugboy and Emp, crossdressing by AdamWarren EMPOWERED's Thugboy and Emp, crossdressing by AdamWarren
Behold, a sketch of the characters Thugboy and Emp from my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy" series Empowered, published by Dark Horse Comics. Per multiple requests on Twitter [link] , I did a "crossplay" (crossdressing cosplay) illo of the two lovers switching the mildly fetishistic costumes they wore in previous Empowered volumes to turn each other on—the "Sexy Librarian" and "sexy Spartan" outfits, as seen here:

Thugboy isn't kidding about the "out-of-continuity" nature of this sketch, either. Unlike Empowered's Goddamn Maidman, ol' T-boy's not especially down with the crossdressing scene, much to poor Emp's dismay.

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]
