MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK
We’re right in the middle of a seasonal change, and as the final leaves slip off the bough and nature prepares to slumber, it brings up the question – what is your favorite season, and more importantly, why?
MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION: Empowered
Empowered is an original English-language manga written and illustrated by Adam Warren. Described by Warren as a “sexy superhero comedy”, Empowered began to take shape in 2004 with a series of commissioned sketches of a damsel in distress; these illustrations became the basis for short comic stories that helped develop the characters for the Empowered series.
