Review – Adam Warren’s Empowered Volume 9

In the newest volume of Adam Warren’s Empowered series, we start out with a recap of Emp’s most recent (mis)adventures, watch her superhero “allies” betray her completely, and see her exiled (in bondage of course) to an uncertain fate at a maximum security ward “for her own safety.”

What follows is a surprisingly lighthearted (yet dark and disturbing) series of multiple kidnappings as teams of villains one-by-one try to capture Emp for their own evil ends. And the resolution is somehow ridiculous, logical, and honestly kinda heartwarming all at once.

Click the jump for a review of Empowered Volume 9.
