    According to Warren,Empowered is ”a sexy superhero comedy… except when it isn't.” Long may it run. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a solid issue with a skimpy plot. Although it's easy to follow, if you're a new reader like me this is probably not the best place to start because none of Emp's friends– Thugboy, Ninjet, and the Superhero Homeys–make an appearance. I'm intrigued by what I've read, but I don't think it's fair to make a judgment on the entire series until I read more. Read Full Review

    . . $4, 29b&w pgs + intro. All ADs @ back. Cute cover. . . SO this is my first foray into the world of Empowered. A comic known for its cheesecake and adult humor, while turning those same features back on themselves in commentary. This issue does not disappoint as it is funny, fun, action oriented and punctuated with meta commentary. Its subtle adnd not too adult, which makes it a little lukewarm but good overall.I can see how this title can fall under the radar, considering its adult leaning, but i would encourage folks to pick it up and give it a try... if you are 18+, of course.
