EMPOWERED vol.10 cover art by AdamWarren EMPOWERED vol.10 cover art by AdamWarren
Haven't posted on deviantART in forever, but what the heck? Might not be much traffic here anymore, but it's still a useful place to go to look at people's artwork. For the record, I'm mainly on Twitter and Instagram right now, with the latter where I've been posting life drawings more or less daily for eight months or so: www.instagram.com/adam_warren_…

Anyhoo, here's the cover art for the newest volume of Empowered, my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy" series published by Dark Horse comics and now on sale both in print and in digital form. Line art by me, beautiful color art by the great Robaato. More info on the volume here: www.darkhorse.com/Books/3001-0…

And the book's solicitation copy:

Costumed crimefighter Empowered, delighted by her long-delayed promotion to full-time membership in the SuperHomeys, enjoys a suprasocial media "victory lap." But will her newfound satisfaction survive the challenges of obnoxious "white knights," disturbing cryoprison visits, alarming alien medical scans and—worst of all—the revelation of a lover's dark secret?

This series has been a hoot whenever I can find a copy.  Especially when she has to deal with 'steelwool'!  Enjoyed your earlier works with Dirty Pair!

Almost a full volume spent on reassuring us (and Emp) that not being skinny is okay. Can't say this was my favorite volume yet. I think it the same could have been accomplished in half the story space and left us some time for funny hijinks, great action, and all the other things we've come to expect from Empowered by now. There are honestly so many story threads left unfinished, including but not limited to Willy Pete, her superhero origins, Ninjette's father, etc. I would have preferred more progress toward those. And my god that Chevalier story was so heavy-handed and yet somehow vaguely hypocritical since the whole story is being told by a man in the end.

This is coming from a big fan who expects many great Empowered exploits to come.

She can only hope that she'll be in less "bondage-y" situations(at least, of the non-consensual sorts).

Great stuff (cliffhanger notwithstanding). 

And I am still enjoying the commentaries on the web serial empoweredcomic (currently at Volume 3).

saw vol. 10 in my local store and was oh-so gleeful.  i joyfully partook of the madness and drama that is emp's life and the awesome art of adam warren.  then i hit the cliff-hanger and immediately raged.  GAWDDAMMIT!!!  VOLUME 11 NOW!!! :(

Gotta love that ending!  Will we ever see flashback adventures of the dead super folk?  I'm curious to see what they were like when they were alive.

Just read it yesterday. 
1) Question: p52 panel 1: I'm far too squeamish and hypochondriac to look them up.  Are those all real things?
2) I'm with metatextual Emp at the end.  Any idea how soon 'soonish' will be?
3) I think my favorite story was Admonishing Alliteration, second favorite was Shove It, Chevalier.  I understand just enough Romance Languages that I could follow his dialogue.

For reasons I am extremely hesitant to express, due to spoilers, I am very annoyed with you Mr. Warren! You can feel free to imagine me closing the book and shaking my fist at you, now.

I've been a fan of your work since, at least, your work on the "Dirty Pair". Glad to see you back on deviantart, ..since I don't use Twitter or Instagram. Hmmm! Does the Vol. 10 cover make Empowered look fat? :P :D

Your comment about there being less traffic here is certainly true...there are some popular people on here who get maybe around 10 comments these days, when 4 years ago they probably would've received 100.  Anyways, I like your cover!  It's great to see you back :)
