Note that Spooky is magically trussing up Emp in the same manner that she would've done in the "fake footage" scene glimpsed onscreen earlier in this chapter.
Panel 4: Ehh, probably should've raised Spooky's foot clear of the bottom of the panel to make it clearer that she's levitating (a la Dua Lipa). Not sure why I didn't do so, as there's definitely enough open space above her to have moved her figure upward.
Today’s Patreon update: In an attempt to scratch out more worktime to complete the long-gestating Empowered vol. 12, I've switched over to a Monday/ Wednesday/ Friday Patreon posting schedule that won't feature the fixed content format I previously used. However, my vast archive of years of Patreon posts—extensive Empowered previews, vintage con sketches, work stages on covers, "damsel in distress" commissions, life drawings & much, much more—remains available for Patrons' perusal.
