Behold, the title-page spread (without the actual title and credits) from Empowered vol.8, the latest installment of my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy" series published by Dark Horse Comics. IMPORTANT NOTE: This book will hit the shelves of your Local Comics Store on DECEMBER 11th, a week earlier earlier than originally planned. More info here: www.darkhorse.com/Books/19-253… And here's a 7-page preview excerpt: www.darkhorse.com/Books/Previe…

Alas, looks like Empowered vol.8 will take a bit longer to be stocked on the shelves of conventional bookstores, including Amazon.com. Howeva, you can order a copy online right now (which will ship out on Dec. 11th, I believe!) from Dark Horse's retail website: www.tfaw.com/Profile/Empowered… Also, a digital-only version of the volume will be available fairly shortly.

I decided to show Emp effectively "cosplaying" as her former rival and nemisis, Sistah Spooky (and manifesting her powers, you'll notice) for the title pages, as the book's largely concerned with that character and her deceased lover, the ill-fated  Mindf**k, as seen here:

The illo's other images are plot elements charged with (widely) varying degrees of narrative importance; readers familiar with Empowered vol.5 might be able to guess at the significance of the kitchen shears, for instance...

Here's the exclusive (ooh, ah!), extended version ofEmpowered vol.8's solicitation copy:

Costumed crimefighter Empowered, her week already ruined by the grueling ordeal of "Superdead Boot Camp," finds herself roped into a tragic and desperate scheme by her grief-stricken teammate Sistah Spooky. On a reckless journey from a terrifying alien arsenal to the even-more-terrifying depths of hell itself, can the bickering duo free the soul of Spooky's slain lover from eternal damnation—or have our mismatched superheroines impulsively blundered into a (quite literally) hellish trap?

In closing, I must of course paste in the requisite general-purpose Emp-related floggery: Print copies of Empowered's first seven volumes (and numerous one-shots in comics format) can be found on the shelves of your Local Comics Retailer or bookstore, or online at Dark Horse's retail website www.tfaw.com/Search?_results_u… or on Amazon.com www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_nos… .

All the existing Empowered books can be purchased rather more cheaply in digital form as well, via the Dark Horse Digital store: digital.darkhorse.com/search/?…

So, do Spooky and Emp get drunk together and swap outfits? Is there a Spooky in Emp's suit lurking in your pencil?
