As an Xmas gift for readers of Empowered,
my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy" series published by Dark Horse Comics, here's an way
-in-advance peek at the B&W line art for the back-cover illo from Empowered
vol.8, the as-yet-unscheduled next book in the epic saga. This is a somewhat provocative illo of the ill-fated telepath "Mindf**k"; not "sexy" provocative, I hasten to clarify, but provocative because of certain differences keen-eyed readers might detect. Alas, I'm afraid that these differences which will have to remain unexplained for the time being... Sorry, keen-eyed readers.
In the meantime, I must hasten to the latest installment in the series, the 32pp one-shot comic Empowered: Hellbent or Heaven Sent
, which is now on sale at your friendly Local Comics Retailer; why, even my normally Emp

Alternatively, you can order the one-shot online from Dark Horse's retail website here: [link]
Or, you can snag the issue in digital form from Dark Horse's digital store: [link]
Here's Empowered: Hellbent or Heaven Sent
's scintillating solicitation copy:This time around, the "sexy superhero comedy" ensues when costumed crimefighter Empowered makes an ill-fated visit to a top-secret dumping ground for ultra-tech "superdebris" and wrecked "villainware" left over from cape-on-cape battle. Can our heroine and her hapless teammate, cyborg-with-a-secret Mechanismo, possibly hope to survive when the junkyard begins nano-spawning an apocalyptic cheesecake plague of flirty but lethal "cyber-angels" and sensual but savage "devil mecha"?
P.S.: In the interests of further floggery, I might as well mention other current Emp

Here's the latest and arguably greatest installment in the series, the ninjatastic Empowered

, which collects volumes 4 through 6 of the series in a big, bold, brawny, 656-page $59.99 hardcover printed on pretty, pretty paper (and including a fair chunk of bonus material): [link]

In closing, I must of course paste in the requisite general-purpose Emp

's first seven 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]

Note, however, that these Empowered Deluxe Editions
will remain a "print-only" proposition, alas.
