Sexy EMPOWERED librarian, p.1 by AdamWarren Sexy EMPOWERED librarian, p.1 by AdamWarren
The first of two pages from “Smart Girl,” a story appearing in the second volume of Empowered, the “sexy superhero comedy” book I write and draw for Dark Horse Comics [link] . As of the present day, the series features five 200+ page volumes, with a sixth hitting the shelves in September 2010 (and further books on the way thereafter).

The repro quality’s a bit lower than normal, here, as I had to level-adjust on a 120dpi jpeg, instead of a 600dpi greyscale scan, as I normally do; also, I wound up relettering all of the wonkier word balloons seen here for greater clarity in the final version.

Several folks on the secret Empowered emailing list (who first saw these particular pages a few YEARS ago) pointed out to me that I went too far with Emp’s admittedly over-the-top “Sexy Librarian” cosplay, and in fact had lost much of the less overtly provocative appeal of the “cute chick with eyeglasses.” This is defensible within the context of the story, I feel, given that the tastes of the Empverse’s “supervills” (whom she's supposed to be baiting, here) are rarely what one would define as “subtle” or “refined”...

You can see more Empowered stuff (including more Sexy Librarian images) in my gallery here: [link] Case in point: A full-color image of Librarian Emp, cosplaying with her boyfriend...

...and said illustration in its published context, on the back cover of Empowered vol. 3:


You can find Empowered on the shelves of your Local Comics Retailer or bookstore; if you don't see any of the volumes, your retailer would no doubt be happy to order 'em for you, in order to, y'know, make some money. You can also order the books online from Dark Horse's retail website [link] or on Amazon.com [link] .

Side note: Had a bit of a close encounter with a black bear whilst out for a walk, last night... Nothin' too scary, as the critter in question didn't fully emerge from the woods until I'd strolled well past it. Still, gotta love that rural lifestyle...

As a librarian, I can assure you most staff don't dress like that.

Mr. Warren you have such a wonderful touch. back in 98 I was drawing little 'dorito' mouth anime girls and then I got an Animerica w/ the Dirty Pair on the cover. I believe you are the reason I draw lips on my anime girls now. :D

This picture is so wonderful! The details, the pencils and shading..it doesn't seem to matter what you draw, it always comes out beautiful. She is very sexy.

And I cannot lie

With a itty-bitty waist,
And a round thing in your face,
You gets...

The design looks nice but the "bare midrift tied up shirt" kinda makes her looks like a Naughty Schoolgirl rather than a Librarian. LOL.

As a gentleman and a scholar (sort of) I think this is a wonderful piece of work. Imagine finding one's self in such an establishment! The only improvement that I would recommend is the addition of ropes, cuffs, ball-gags, pink cotton panties, etc. for the inevitable punishment and making-up-after scenario when these cute girls somehow prove negligent in their book sorting. Imagine, putting The Devil's Dictionary" in the religion section.
