Note that Distressed Emp's pose is a fairly direct homage to the opening shot of the titular superheroine in peril from the fairly infamous 1978 comic Spider-Woman #5, a story which is a big frickin' deal in old-school "damsel in distress" circles. I've done rather a few—okay, rather many—"DiD" commissions based on that sequence, which indirectly led to the genesis of this very series; so, porting a reference directly into this comic seemed like not much of a stretch.

Next week on the webcomic, table-turning is unquestionably afoot, though readers might not anticipate exactly how said table-turning is achieved...

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. So, who knows what today's post might feature? Could be Life Drawing or Distressed Damsels content (both of which are featured at least three times per month), or something in the Work Stages, Vintage Con Sketches or Design departments, or possibly something entirely new. Golly!
