Enjoy some serious vertical panel action, folks! Gotta say, one of my favorite manga of late is Satoru Noda's Golden Kamuy, which features a strong emphasis on big, bold vertical panels like these; makes me wanna look into upping my "tall, skinny panel" layout game.
Panel 3: As far as Emp's whimsically cutesy turns of speech go, "Miss righty-as-rain pants" is a fairly extreme example of the breed.
And that's it for "Reducing the Uppity," the opening story from Empowered vol. 5. Next time, we start up "Denial at Flood Stage," in which we learn a fair bit about the aftermath of the previous volume's Caped Justice Awards disaster.
