As the very fabric of reality itself unravels around them in a frighteningly literal "storm of burning passion," can a desperate Empowered and Ninjette stop the embittered, disillusioned, and out-of-control Soldier of Love from using her supercharged "magical-girl" powers to eradicate the entire concept of love from their city?

    While I've had mixed luck with the Empowered spinoffs before, and the main series can be a whole lot to take on in one sitting, the Soldier of Love mini worked better for me than expected even with its faults. Warren plays with the characters well here and just got plain silly early on before getting more serious and emotional here in the finale. The big winner is Karla Diaz, however, as she's produced some fantastic work that should see her star rising in general. There's a real fluidity to her work that's very appealing, a great take on the familiar character designs here, and some fantastic color work. The series is worth it just for the discovery of her and I hope she's fielding offers for any number of books to tackle these days. Read Full Review

    The mini-series was fun with lovely artwork. It'sa light hearted read and especially amusing for fans of the magical girl genre or anime/manga in general. However,I feel the story could have gone farther. This does, however, serve as a good vehicle for anyone who wants to read more about the character Empowered, her friends, in the main series.
