EMPOWERED AND THE SOLDIER OF LOVE TPB cover art by AdamWarren EMPOWERED AND THE SOLDIER OF LOVE TPB cover art by AdamWarren
Behold, the cover art for the upcoming trade paperback (TPB) collection* of the 2017 miniseries Empowered and the Soldier of Love, written by me and featuring art by the great Karla Diaz! The TPB hits the shelves of North American comic stores June 27th, then is available in bookstores on July 3rd. More info here: www.darkhorse.com/Books/3002-0…

Love is tearing apart costumed crimefighter Empowered’s city, as the unearthly powers of an embittered “International Magical Girl of Mystery” covertly inflame the superheroic community’s burning passions. But even if a befuddled Emp can puzzle out her shadowy foe’s schemes, can she hope to prevail against the Soldier of Love (and magical mascot Señor Pangolin)?

Note that the collection also includes the one-shot Empowered: PEW PEW PEW!, which I drew myself; cover illo below.


*Readers of the miniseries may notice that this is also the cover to issue #3, rather than an all-new piece; publishers have found that, alas, commissioning a new cover for a collected edition doesn't seem to help sales very much, if at all.

IMO "Madoka Magica" already de-constructed the "Magical Girls" subject, saying "Uh, if this were in RL wouldn't it be creepy and wrong on Soooooo many levels!?" 


Still, I got issue #1 and I'll get the rest.  Love your works.

Is it possible to include a translation for what The Soldier of Love is saying in this series. I got the gist of what she was saying but felt like I was missing out.

Well, Empowered was bound to encounter an opponent whose default attacks didn't automatically start shredding her suit sooner or later.

Granted, knowing her general level of luck, it won't last...
