Book Description

Costumed crime fighter Empowered, already reeling from "The Worst Book Proposal Ever," finds herself roped into a desperate scheme by her grief-stricken teammate, Sistah Spooky. Journeying from a terrifying alien arsenal to the even-more-terrifying depths of hell itself, can the mismatched superheroines free the soul of Spooky's lover from eternal damnation? * Over 100,000 copies of Empowered volumes in print! "Adam Warren continues to beat the odds and persists in getting better and better with his spicy superhero romp."-Johnny Bacardi, Popdose.com "A sort of R-rated sitcom exploring geek culture from the inside out... It's full of exploitative, titillating imagery."-J. Caleb Mozzocco, Las Vegas Weekly

Adam Warren has once again raised the bar on Empowered. It really is becoming one of the stars of my current reading habits, something I would never have imagined when I opened up the first volume. But now I've gone from sceptic to full-blown fan of the superhero you want at your back when you need a knot untying.

Plucky superheroine Empowered is still finding herself in the unenviable position as the good guy most often found tied up and with a gag in her mouth instead of saving the day. Her comrades in her team, the Superhomeys, are still treating her with a mixture of pity and contempt, though the ringleader of this perpetual hazing, the magic-powered Sistah Spooky, is about to ask for Empowered's help with a potentially suicidal plan to rescue the soul of someone she loves from Hell itself. Along the way the unlikely duo will have to steal a weapon that may well start an interstellar war once someone notices it is missing, Sistah Spooky will have to face up to some of the horrible things she's done to Emp, and even then all bets are off as to whether their crazy plan will work, never mind if either of them will make it back alive... because breaking into Hell is the easiest part.

This latest volume is without a doubt the best yet. Adam Warren continues his trend of making this initially extremely comedic series into a much more deep and serious ongoing story, which while not quite as serious as the bloodbath-tastic previous volume, certainly has the most emotional resonance yet. While we do get to see Empowered demonstrate how she gets through her low moments with some well-earned victory, Sistah Spooky is the real focus of this book.

Normally with Adam Warren and his much-acclaimed Empowered series it sells itself to the point where its hard to do the books justice in a review, but I can safely say as a long-time admirer of his works, and especially this series - This Is The Best So Far.

Literally the day this was available to pre order I did so and have been (im)patiently awaiting its arrival, and happily a few weeks of initial release estimates it has arrived, been read cover to cover, and already want more. Without giving any spoilers away it is less heart-wrenching than some of the recent books have been, but still has echoes the serious and dark tones Adam's storylines are known to encompass. The Art is fantastic as always and the way the action is presented in this volume sets a good precedent on just how serious he takes this storyline - sit back and enjoy this feast and wonder just how he managesd to make Vol. 8 so page-turningly-un-put-down-able.

Adam Warren has raised the bar yet again in delivering yet another Jewel in the Empowered crown - lets hope it has still yet to peak.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs Up! 24 Jun. 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Talk, talk, talk. Empowered is traditionally wordy but this seeks to set new standards. Between the massive monologues, the bold, the underline and now parenthesis, this is getting hard on the brain, even before the thesauri-baiting.

Thankfully it doesn’t last and the second half of the book goes back to the gooey, romantic and truly heroic feelings within us that Warren has a gift for tapping into. Sometimes heroes need saving and Emp understands that more than most.

The artwork is still overusing the heavy blacks although these are now mostly used for environments. In a pinup comic you want to see fine lines and delicate shading, and you know from previous volumes Warren is good at it, so let’s hope we get to see more in future.

It was a bit shaky at first but it is still a Thumbs Up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Adam warrans heroine keeps getting better! 9 Jun. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Considering lil' emp started out as a joke, it is surprising that the stories keep getting better! This one is low on on-shot jokes but big on the ol' theological debate!

Warren proves that he's all about the story continuity!

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Adam Warren, well done - this comic pushes all of the buttons that you didn't think it would from the cover. Want some FEELS? check. Want action? Check. Want rule-of-cool? Dripping with it. BUY.
