Adam Warren and Dark Horse Books return at last to the tumultuous world of Empowered. With story and art by Warren and dazzling cover colors by Ryan Kinnaird, Empowered Volume 12 features a mind-blowing, all-consuming, full-length single story that shakes up the Empowered universe like an avalanche of jackhammers!

Costumed crimefighter Empowered is trapped in a surreal nightmare scenario as her universe begins spontaneously rebooting again and again, with each variation more twisted and bizarre than the last! Can our befuddled superheroine somehow undo this inexplicable Neverending Reboot—while simultaneously steering her love life in a boldly polyamorous new direction with Thugboy and Ninjette!—or is this The End for Emp and her chaotically convulsing cosmos?

The Empowered Volume 12 original graphic novel will be in comic stores June 7, 2023 and bookstores June 20, 2023. It is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop and bookstore for $19.99. Empowered is for mature readers and is suitably shrink-wrapped to contain the epic-ness that awaits within!

“One of the most thoughtful takes on superheroes you’ll find.” —Hitfix
