The next volume can't come out soon enough and I mean that. The series is progressing at an incredibly rapid rate and I'm really jonesing for my next Empowered fix.

The last volume ended on a pretty sad note, with the death of Mindf__. Sistah Spooky is heartbroken and practically comatose with grief. To make matters worse, she can't get her dead ex out of her mind... literally. This really shows us a deeper aspect to Spooky's character and also opens up the door for a different sort of relations...more
The bit I like most? The totally blase reaction the media has to the deaths of several superheroes. It's not just that they're not surprised. No, they have a betting pool on which supervillains are going to do the most damage. It's entertainment for the media, and it's gruesome in a way that tells you how little superheroes are thought of once they're gone. Superheroes are in it for the ego, or for the pure exercise of power, or simply to get laid. The world praises them, flatters them, and then...more
This series is more than it appears to be, more in fact than it purports to be. It presents itself on face value as an exploitative, borderline misogynistic effort and that may be its conception.

It is however in fact anything but, its hilarious for starters, the characters are engaging, the overall story is multi layered and the stories in each book are well written.

The art work is in pencils and its the best example of pencil work I've seen.

This book continues to impress with it's sense of humor and unexpectedly good characterization. Bits like the radio call-in show for superhero fans where one fan is excited that an obscure villain he had in his fantasy league helped his team rank by killing a whole bunch of heroes is a really clever take on fandom. I always find the action scenes in this book are less interesting than everything else and that's still the case here. Warren also seems to constantly get caught up in overly written...more
There's some really great sections, but it takes a little while for this volume to really get going. There was a lot of really interesting world-building in this volume, which is somewhat unexpected for the series but really welcome. There's still a good amount of character development and humor. The art for the series is usually about the same in each volume, but the action sequences were pretty good in this one, and there were more than usual. The slower beginning and middle are the only major...more

Little uncertain of how I felt about this book. The superhero world of Capes is interesting, and much darker than I thought. The fan service is either something you enjoy or something you don't--and here I was very much in the latter camp. Overall, I enjoyed this, and will be back for the next collection. I'm just not yet in the rabid fan basecamp of those who *really really* like EMPOWERED.
In what was going to be Adam Warren last foray into his Empowered tomes, the book adds in new characters, funy gimmicks, and makes Warren realize that he must continue onward. While he does apply color to his inks with two one-shot comics that follow this, the treat is the news of a volume seven on its way!
Great book, story moved along nicely. I might be getting burnt out on this though.
This was brilliant, I want more, but I found out the next volume won't be out for a while, it isn't even available to pre-order, c'mon Warren, get with it, I want me more scantily clad heroine action!
Mostly incoherent, and far too wrapped up in the plot and going for shock value to pay attention to the little character moments that made this series more than just T&A.

As usual, consistently well-written and beautifully drawn. Adam Warren manages to keep a great balance between silly and thoughtful.

I'll keep this short: Empowered becomes totally badass in this book, and it is impossible not to love it (and her) for it.

By the time you get to volume 6 you should pretty much know what to expect ;-)
Another empowered book with the same humour and 4th panel satire.

When is the next volume out, please?
