After saving much of the superhero community from certain doom, costumed crime fighter Empowered is dismayed to find that, in the suspicious eyes of her caped colleagues, she's gone from being merely a "pair of training wheels for supervillains" to possibly being a closeted supervillain herself! Worse yet, she's wrestling with envy and resentment that her roommate Ninjette and boyfriend Thugboy are now more popular in masks-and-tights circles than she is! Meanwhile, our stressed-out superheroine must also unravel an alien-spawned body-image conspiracy, overcome "cosplay" dress-up disasters at work and in bed, and try to survive a potentially lethal confrontation with her teammate Sistah Spooky!

* Empowered Vol. 1 is already in its fourth printing!

* A New York Times bestseller!

* Adam Warren's work on The Dirty Pair is well known to U.S. comics readers.

The fallout from the last volume and threads from the first four continue to develop and bear fruit here. There are more of Warren's storytelling touches here: metatextual commentary, pun-ny codenames, dialogue with vocabulary so thick some might need a thesaurus to understand it. Even the recap section has a little twist. The last story ends with a heart-breaking (other body parts gets broken...or worse) finale that brings out a little sympathy for one particularly unsympathetic character. Eagerly awaiting the next volume.

Adam Warren is a fantastic wordsmith and a great storyteller. His work would probably be more critically reviewed if it wasn't so risqué. Doesn't bother me, though!
