When EMPOWERED Attacks, p.1 by AdamWarren When EMPOWERED Attacks, p.1 by AdamWarren
From the upcoming second volume of EMPOWERED, my "sexy superhero comedy" book due out from Dark Horse Comics on Oct. 3rd, here's another continuity page... Note that this is from the short story "Wahh, Wahh, Wahh", the title page for which can be seen at:

This time around, a depowered Emp is once again being dissed by a bad guy... but, as you'll see in the finished book, Lone Gunman picked the wrong day to mess with our long-suffering heroine.

Note also that it's prolly a bad idea for me to post continuity pages, as they tend to get far less pageviews than my illustrations... On the other hand, one EMPOWERED 2 continuity page has received beaucoup de views, relatively speaking: the "Emp as Sexy Librarian" page! You can see this (relatively) popular piece at:

UPDATE: For the time being, you can see a 10-page preview from EMPOWERED vol. 2 at Publishers' Weekly: [link]

As for EMPOWERED 2, you can preorder the book from your local comics retailer or bookstore (heck, even my local Barnes & Noble briefly stocked EMPOWERED vol. 1, albeit in the jumbled hellscape of the regular comics section, as opposed to the orderly paradise of the manga section)... or you can order it from DH online at:

Fantastic action scenes, like aways. And on the third scene, I coul'd resist to imagine a first person shooter game, lol. :D

I Amazoned 1 and 2 as soon as I had the money for it. They have a great package deal that give you about 30% off the cover price. Have to wait until Oct 1 delivery on them though, but your books are always worth the wait.

I wonder what's more annoying: being sprayed with bullets or having a lone gunman on the back. XD

Remind me again why shooting her continually at point blank range after the supersuit is rendered useless isn't lethal? Even if she's been stripped bare of the suit completely?

hey we were thinking the same thing at the same time!
but i realize it's just a comic,
a drawing of a really hot cute heroin, who's suit displays her rather big butt, prominently.
just got turned on to this.
have to pick up the graphic novels down town.
adam- great save :-)

To clarify: In panel 2, the Cosmo Anaconda's six shots are what's causing Emp's "supersuit" to tatter, as the hypermembrane expends itself to block the shots... The suit was NOT already damaged beforehand.

In theory, I could've expended more pagespace to make this point ABSOLUTELY clear, but hey, a certain degree of allusion and use of narrative shorthand is part and parcel of why I do EMPOWERED in the first place.

And yes, shooting her continually at point blank range after the supersuit is rendered useless would indeed be lethal...

Ah, I see... But then, that just raises more questions! Is the suit reacting to a conscious/unconscious command of the user to deflect, absorb or otherwise neutralize the oncoming attack, a neural interface of some kind or is the suit itself exhibiting a form of sentience in that it is intercepting these bullets independently of it's wearer's will?
