Panel 3: Suspicious SHPP-ing, folks!
Panel 4: SPOILER ALERT: Something really, really horrible is happening in this panel.
Panel 5: You miiiiiight recall this line of dialogue from a previous volume. However, the unusual flight of Time’s Arrow from the Blazing-Eyed Devilgoat’s point of view becomes very relevant indeed later on in this volume.
And that’s it for the opening story “Time’s Arrow, Flying Differently” and its preview of the book’s upcoming events, folks. Tomorrow, Empowered vol. 7 shifts back to a more conventional storytelling mode—and timeframe—in the story “Whoopsies,” which picks up from the climactic events of vol.6.
Today’s Patreon update: We’re continuing serialization of the unpublished Dirty Pair story Quick & Dirty, a 2003 48-pager written and drawn in a proto-Empowered pencil-page format.
