Review and Preview – Empowered Special #7: Pew Pew Pew!

The laser blasts fly as costumed crime fighter Empowered battles a series of puzzlingly rage-fueled supervillains, each one armed with a bigger and more destructive “supergun” than the last. Ah, but might our long-suffering heroine’s own buried resentments and repressed bitterness prove to be her deadliest foes? (SPOILER: Yes, pretty much.)

A new, stand-alone issue of Empowered, Adam Warren’s sexy superhero series, is out next week, and this one is written and drawn by Adam himself! Click the jump for preview pages and a review of Empowered Special #7: Pew Pew Pew!

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.

Review: Empowered Volume 8

Review: Empowered Volume 8

After almost a year and a half of waiting I finally got my hands on Empowered Volume 8, the newest book in Adam Warren’s “sexy superheroine” series.

To tide us over during that time, Warren gave us several stand-alone issues, written by himself and illustrated by various guest artists. I enjoyed those, and my only problem with them was that they weren’t drawn by Warren. (Which was the whole point: he needed to put the time and effort into finishing volume 8.) And after 17 months of art by (admittedly amazing) guest artists, I was completely blown away by an entire huge book drawn by Warren himself.

The Twelve Days (Years?) of Books

This got started when I wondered if you could do a “Twelve Days of Christmas” list with books and graphic novels. Turns out you can, if you play a little fast and loose with the rules.

Here then is a list of some of my favorite books and series, in case you were looking for a reading list for next year. And the year after that. And…well, as near as my limited math can figure, if you read six of these a year, you’re good for the next twelve years. You’re welcome.
