Panel 1: Emp snarking on bad guys is highly amusing to me, I must admit. (There! I admitted it!)
Panel 2: Aaaand that's where we leave Dreadnaughty Naughty, still spinning furiously.
Panel 3: Whatever could the stylized letters "Ei!" on the bad guy's costume stand for, might you well ask? You'll find out within the next few pages, never fear.
Panel 4: Time to sound the ol' Excessively Petite Feet Alert on Emp in this shot, lest that one commenter trot out his tired snark about "Chinese foot binding" once again. Heard ya the first dozen times, buddy! Perhaps you could pursue a more constructive approach by traveling back in time to 2014 and alerting Past Me to this shocking, shocking lapse in his otherwise hyper-realistic depiction of cartoon anatomy?
Today’s Patreon update: Originally done as a means of scratching 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.
