My Guiltiest Pleasure in Comics, Empowered, Returns in September After Two Years

My guiltiest pleasure returns in September, the latest original graphic novel in Adam Warren's Empowered series that has been running since 2007. woke, satirical BDSM cheesecake, it most definitely is, but it's also a flat share sitcom, a superhero universe and a mystery/thriller at the same time. The last of these volumes was in July 2017, though there have been a couple of short one-shots since. But it was the first part of a two-part story so it has been a long wait.
Well, Empowered Volume 11 TPB, concludes the two-part story that began in Empowered Volume 10, and promises nonstop cover-to-cover caped combat. I don't believe that though, I need to also expect the cast sitting around discussing the pot plants. And Emp breaking down over one thing, before standing up stronger than all the rest over another. Having it's cheesecake and eating it.

Empowered is back and in distress! She finds herself the target of a maniacal new supervillain who uses his godlike powers to turn the entire city of suprahumans against her. Outnumbered and under siege, aided only by the ghost of a slain hero, can Empowered survive the onslaught long enough to free her enslaved teammates and loved ones? Or is this the end of Emp and the rest of the Superhomeys for good?

The 216-page Empowered Volume 11 arrives in comic shops September 18th and in bookstores October 1, 2019.
