Of course, it's side-achingly funny. Sure, it's eye-lovingly illustrated. But is it just possibly the best send-up of superheroes yet created? In a word . . . duh! Adam Warren's Empowered rattles the capes-and-tights cage in a manner well-deserved for said enclosure, but That's Not All, true believer. There is "genuinely affecting emotion" (Library Journal). And it's for "real, live adults" (MTV Geek News). In fact, Empowered is "a fantastically rendered book on every conceivable level" (Comic Book Resources). Don't be a coward, get Empowered! Collects Empowered volumes 1, 2, and 3.
