"Empowered" by Adam Warren

Empowered
By Adam Warren
Published by Dark Horse Books


Well, this work is all Adam Warren.

247 pages of black and white manga. Don't have a ruler, but it is slightly smaller than a normal American comic, but much larger than the typical manga you buy in the store.

I kind of hoped for a better story, but I guess it is not that bad. Supposedly it is a satire on the superhero genre.

No overt nudity.........., but this comes as close to hentai as you can get without actually crossing the line.

Like Dirty Pair, guess we are going to have to wait for a colorized version.

Tokyo Central to Shirow One, that is affirmative, have Shirow One on hold count.

Adam Warren is one of my favorite artists, I already ordered myself a copy of it, it´s been a while since he published something.

his DA account is http://www.adamwarren.deviantart.com he has some sketches and illustrations from Empowered for those who want to know more about his newest project

BTW, Arctus, I don´t think Adam is going to get this book colored, he did this with the idea of a more "manga like" release rather than his past manga-style comicbooks.

If he gets excellent sales, they will probably convince him to get it colorized, for additional profit. Some of his more popular Dirty Pair mangas were colorized, afterwards.

Heh I guess I am a bit old school but in a way his un-colourised work is more precious to me because of all the nostalgia associated to it.
