At the Purple Paladin Memorial Hospital’s terrifying Suprahuman Treatment Wing, Dr. Big McLarge Huge recruits costumed crimefighter Empowered and her best friend Ninjette to save a five-mile-wide alien mothership’s parasite-infested babyship—if, that is, our heroines can even survive the elevator ride up to the operating room!

    Is there more to say about this issue? Tons, in fact there's so much I want to pick apart and talk about and just comment on in general, but then what reason would you have to read the comic? I don't want to spoil it so I will end it here saying the very thing I said in the beginning" you should buy this issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 31, 2014

    Certain comic books are fun to read just for the world building (see PS 238, Savage Dragon and Astro City), while others are all about clever little character pieces (see anything written by Brian Bendis, Kieron Gillen or Joe Straczynski), but Empowered hits both, along with glimpses of something entirely unique. Empowered, as a character, is taking a journey from poor victimized schlemiel to full-on super-powered dynamo, and it's really wonderful to see the gradual changes in her character. Empowered Special #6 has a fun story, a couple of ingenious concepts folded in, and a foreboding visage of a terrible future, delivering the proverbial full Monty. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Mar 26, 2014

    I'll admit my expectations were high for this pairing of super artists and that expectation brought me much too high for the quality of the book. That said it's a fun, albeit pointless, adventure. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Apr 2, 2014

    Internal Medicine uses its smaller focus to explore a corner of Empowered's world that might otherwise have gone unseen and uses its smaller size as an opportunity to try new things visually. It's plenty clever but, despite a cool tie-in to a beloved chapter from volume 7, it's non-essential. Easy to pick up and read, Empowered: Internal Medicine is probably best left to those interested in the art and Empowered fans looking for a quick fix. Read Full Review
