Adam Warren’s Empowered Returns in September!

Since 2007, creator Adam Warren has brought the adventures of Empowered and the Superhomeys to kickass life, and their suprastory continues in September with Empowered Volume 11 TPB, the long-awaited full-volume conclusion to the story begun in Empowered Volume 10, featuring nonstop cover-to-cover caped combat!

Empowered is back and in distress! She finds herself the target of a maniacal new supervillain who uses his godlike powers to turn the entire city of suprahumans against her. Outnumbered and under siege, aided only by the ghost of a slain hero, can Empowered survive the onslaught long enough to free her enslaved teammates and loved ones? Or is this the end of Emp and the rest of the Superhomeys for good?

The 216-page Empowered Volume 11 arrives in comic shops September 18, 2019 and bookstores October 1, 2019.

Dark Horse Celebrates Ten Years of Empowerment

In honor of the tenth anniversary of Adam Warren’s breakout hit, Dark Horse has announced the next installments in the Empowered series: Empowered and the Soldier of Love and Empowered Volume 10. Adam Warren creates more adventures for Emp while Karla Diaz applies her magnificent artistic skills to the Soldier of Love miniseries.

Empowered and the Soldier of Love finds Emp battling the International Magical Girl of Mystery. Emp’s new foe is using her unearthly powers to inflame the superhero community’s passions and create tension and problems among her fellow Superhomeys.

Empowered and the Soldier of Love’s first issue (of three) goes on sale February 8, 2017. Empowered Volume 10 will be available in summer 2017.


Empowered Volume 9 is Beyond Your Comedy Imagination

Empowered Vol 9Get ready to patch up your supersuit for a new challenge, because Adam Warren’s Empowered is back, and the stakes are higher than ever for Emp!

Already under official suspicion and suspended from her superteam, costumed crime fighter Empowered finds herself the bewildered target of every major supervillain in the capes-and-tights field for her supposed access to alien technology. With a trick or two up her tattered supersuit’s sleeve, can our tirelessly plucky but sadly underestimated heroine outwit her army of tormentors—and escape the long-simmering revenge of the sinister Fleshmaster?

Empowered Volume 9 takes Adam Warren’s long-running series to a whole new level. Garnering critical acclaim from fans and critics alike, Empowered is not only a fantastic story—it’s one of the longest-running American graphic novel series currently in publication.

Dark Horse Books Announces Empowered Deluxe Edition!

Official Press Release



October 6, Milwaukie, OR Dark Horse Books is proud to announce a special Empowered hardcover collection, limited to one printing!

Adam Warren’s Empowered is the undefeated champion of steamy cape-and-tights comedy, and Dark Horse Books dares to present an Empowered edition so massive that even the superpowered can barely lift it!

An invulnerable hardcover collection limited to a single mighty printing, Empowered Deluxe Edition Volume 1 collects between its rock-hard covers all the material from the first three Empowered volumes, plus several metric tons (okay, like forty pages) of top-secret, never-before-seen extras (except by Adam Warren, a few close friends, and some ninjas), including the very first Empowered stories, sketches, logo variants, Adam’s story notes, and more, more, more!

That’s seven hundred pages, chief, and printed on way nice paper, too! Only you deserve so much!

“One of the most laugh-out-loud-funny works I’ve read in years.”—Rob Vollmar, Comics Worth Reading

Empowered Deluxe Edition Volume 1 is on sale Feb 29, 2012.
