Bondage-riffic EMPOWERED page

As advertised, a somewhat "bondage-riffic" page from the upcoming (Oct. 3, 2007) second volume of EMPOWERED, my "sexy superhero comedy" published by Dark Horse Comics.

Just thought I'd post this to warn all y'all that our eponymous heroine, Empowered, does remain just a tad, well, "bondage-prone" in vol. 2. This occurs rather less frequently than in vol. 1, for whatever that's worth, but still...

This time around, Emp's highly unreliable "super-suit" can't be blamed for getting her into trouble, as she was sent in undercover as "Sexy Librarian Bait" to draw the attention of eyeglasses-obsessed supervillain Idea Man, as seen here:

and here:

To be honest, I think Idea Man seems a bit too slender and slightly built to be hefting our heroine quite so easily, but what the heck... Perhaps wearing that heavy, ludicrous helmet for so long has helped him develop deceptive upper-body strength?

Have to say, Idea Man's concept for unleashing the apocalypse via "bookish hotness" isn't entirely uninteresting... Not that the reader ever gets all the details of the plan, though! When Emp tries to explain said supervillainous scheme to her inamorata Thugboy in a subsequent scene, he's so addled by lust that he cannot comprehend her exposition (and neither can the reader, alas)...


For the time being, you can see a (bondage-free!) 10-page preview excerpt from EMPOWERED vol. 2 at Publishers' Weekly:

You can preorder EMPOWERED vol. 2 from your local comics retailer or bookstore, or just pick it up at the store next Wednesday (again, Oct. 3rd). 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:

or from Amazon at:

UPDATE: Looks like the book is on track to hit the shelves next week, as I'm supposed to receive my initial advance copy on Friday... Woo, hoo!

Oddly enough, I've already received my comp copies of the collection for IRON MAN: HYPERVELOCITY, the miniseries I wrote and laid out for Marvel earlier this year. The odd part is, the book's not supposed to "drop" until Oct. 10th... Hmm.

I was a fan way back in the 80s with Dirty Pair. Looks like I've got some catching up to do.

Somehow you made a cartoon that I would be a sugar daddy for. Thanks for helping me discover another side of me that is unsettling. But you did an awesome job!

He's trying so hard, god bless him.
Awesome. I have to say, Empowered's disguise makes me think of My Morning Jacket's song "Librarian", about the "sexiest librarian" though from the song it seems she dressed a bit more modestly. ;)

Love this page, especially the last two panels. Emp's multi-aforementioned eyeroll elicits great appreciation, but my prime shout-out has to go to the over-the-shoulder carry image, so reminiscent of the late, great Dave Stevens' illo of the Rocketeer carrying a bound and gagged Betty over his shoulder.

And since when did a superheroine being bondage-prone become a bad thing? It's a classic!
Kudos and huzzahs, Mr. Warren!

What do you use? pencil or pen?
i like bondagerific, and a sueprherione is a prime source of it. especially a hot, dangerprone one like poor empowered.

My god what a bad ass, though for the record he doesn't look really fearful for a supervillian , thoguh with his design i think of some kinda dime-store Galactus. :D
i must say, your character is HOOOOOT. and, personally, i love bondage.

but i wonder what powers she has?
i love bondage, and that is one hooooot girl.

The expression on her face in the last panel sells the whole gag so beautifully. :D

Hehehe, it looks wonderful, I have always liked the sarcasm and acid sense of humour in some of your comics XD
