    This is a good start to the next Empowered mini-series. At this point, you're either a fan of Empowered or about to pick up your first issue and be a little confused. Trust me, the brilliant thing about Empowered is that you're never lost for long. Warren does an excellent job of making sure you know a little extra about the world, without it becoming some daunting task. There isn't much else to say about this issue without just providing you spoilers, so just give it a shot. Read Full Review
