While Empowered struggles with a superhero community turned upside down by rampant romance, her mercenary "magical girl" opponent, the Soldier of Love, escalates her fanatical "down with love" campaign to an apocalyptic new level! Meanwhile, Ninjette wisely stays well hydrated with a beer or three! Or four! (Gotta have priorities, folks.)

    While the story beats are familiar and what we get is very much good Empowered material outside of a few problematic areas, the real winner here once again is Karla Diaz. She's such a discovery for me with this that I really wish she had a dozen different mainstream projects underway as I want to see her interpretations on other books and characters as well as more original work. And some variant covers. I just adore the style and how well it works with Empowered. The story is straightforward and I'm enjoying the sexytime shenanigans once more but it also feels like it could have gone a bit further than it did as it almost feels a little tame compared to the first installment. The end result is a very fun book overall and one that delivers on the strengths of the creative team in a very big way. Read Full Review

    Overall I enjoyed Empowered and the Soldier of Love #2, I was attracted by the cover art and that its main heros were female. As a fan of magical girl anime and manga I couldn't help but give it a read. This issue has humor and the bulk of the story of this miniseries, though I look forward to how everything is wrapped up in issue three. I recommend giving all three issues a read, especially if you're a fan of female superheroes and magical girl tropes. The solid writing and eye-catching art held my attention through each page.
