Thought I'd post a journal for any deviantART readers wanting to weigh in on Empowered vol. 7, the latest installment of my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy" series published by Dark Horse Comics, on sale as of today. More info here: www.darkhorse.com/Books/18-058…

Anyhoo, feel free to post your opinion here in the comments, which will hereafter be SPOILER ALERT Central for anyone who's not yet read the book; beware, virgin readers! (No, wait, that sounds bad...)  

Side note: Despite an exhaustive corrections process, several maddening typos still snuck their way into Empowered vol. 7's 224 pages (just like the ninja who are the books' subjects, come to think of it). Example: My apologies in advance for the inexplicable, uh, "misspelling" of the Japanese kana for "Ikuzo—!" during one of the two times it appears in the book.   

And now, the mandatory floggery:  Empowered vol. 7 can be found on the shelves of your Local Comics Retailer (or bookstore, possibly), or online at Dark Horse's retail website www.tfaw.com/Profile/Empowered… or on Amazon.com www.amazon.com/Empowered-Volum… . Note that links for ordering the previous six books (and two "floppy" comics-format one-shots) can also be found at those sites... Hint, hint.

EMPOWERED vol. 7's cover, in luxurious color by AdamWarren

And here's Empowered vol. 7's solicitation copy:

While costumed crimefighter Empowered makes a startling discovery regarding her unfortunate status as an all-too-frequent "damsel in distress," her hard-drinking best friend Ninjette confronts her own sordid past, violent present and frighteningly uncertain future as she fights a desperate, single-handed battle against a entire clan of supernaturally durable ninja warriors. Can our two hard-luck heroines also withstand the further perils posed by supervillainous minivans, dueling sets of "daddy issues," doomed-but-still-hot boyfriends, undead karaoke party-crashers, and even "spoiler alerts from hell itself" voiced  by diabolically omniscient demonspawn?

In closing, I must of course paste in the requisite general-purpose Emp-related floggery: Print copies of Empowered's first six volumes (and a pair of 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/browse/1…

Just read the bugger - blimey, as per usual one can't wait for the next installment.
Amazing how much the characters has grown, and grown on me, the reader.
From enjoying the whole bondage'd butt brilliance to actually caring for our heroes, a process that went
far quicker than one would think.
I do recall the shift in attention, already with the first volume - and it's expanded ever since.

To put it even shorter: yes, I liked.
Verbal high five.
