The laser blasts fly as costumed crime fighter Empowered battles a series of puzzlingly rage-fueled supervillains, each one armed with a bigger and more destructive “supergun” than the last. Ah, but might our long-suffering heroine’s own buried resentments and repressed bitterness prove to be her deadliest foes? (SPOILER: Yes, pretty much.)

    There may not be an ongoing or a slow ongoing series for Empowered, but I will say that these one-shots are new reader friendly. They give you a solid introduction to the world each time, but without it being an overkill like comics from the 70s. If you love the superhero genre, but you've never read anything outside of the big two, give this a chance. See what the world of comics has to offer because it will surprise you in the best of ways.

    While I love Warren's character designs and sense of kinetic energy in the fight sequences, the intense amount of detail and tight layouts just overwhelms me. I find it a lot more manageable on my part in a shorter special like this and what we get here with Pew Pew Pew! is just a delight. While there are more areas it could go to try and say more about various situations, it's used more as a plot point to show how Emp is maturing and holding up alongside the overall storyline and growth of the character from the main book. I had a lot of fun with this issue and can already see myself re-reading it sooner than later to enjoy it again. Read Full Review
