Woo, Empowered! We never get enough of that posted here.

I like the increasingly 'wow' implications of the shipping, including what appears to be one only possible with time travel ^^

Also I think artist Karla Diaz here is a better fit for the Empverse than some of the other guest artists. A few, while good, have tended a bit conventional in background super designs. And while only one of these is obviously inhuman looking (Cybertiamat), there's fun stuff like Buffalo Girl's hat.

Oooh, yes, that makes sense ^^

And we've never actually seen chrono powers before, but they've been mentioned as existing and the hospital one-shot had some odd time stuff.

Ohhhhh. I used to read Empowered, but fell out of the loop (took too long for the next volume to came out, so I forgot to pick it up, and next time I looked there were several volumes out and I kept procrastinating and then forgot about it again).

What's the status of the series these days? Is it still ongoing? What's the latest volume? Is this one posted here a spin-off or a one-shot?

It's still continuing, 10 is the latest volume, this is the first issue of a three-issue sidestory, and it's also Online (though only partway through vol 2)

The last several volumes have been really strong IMO, with some gutpunches & hero moments.

You're welcome, though I do realize I made a minor error. 9's the latest volume, 10 is upcoming.

It's still the only book I buy without reading first. :p Though I'm getting a little leery, just because it's gotten darker over the past couple volumes. I'm still really enjoying them, but I don't want them to get TOO dark.

Oh, and also around volume seven or so, the print quality kicked up a notch, which is really nice! The books are now a tiny bit pricier, but it's like a buck, and now it's shiny glossy paper with sharper detailing, so I'd say it's totally worth it!

The side-stories tend towards the lighter... and volume 9 wasn't too dark all in all.

I dunno, I found the Manny stuff pretty sad! Not unexpected, but sad. And don't get me wrong, I thought it was a good ending, and the balance of dark/light is still okay for me, I'm just hoping it stays that way!

Oh yea, that was sad, but just one part of the volume and the earlier volumes had not dissimilar sad parts. It's not like Hell volume.

On top of all the shipping jokes, I'm 99% sure either Mechzalcoatl or Cybertiamat is an homage to Hiram McDaniels, literally the five-headed dragon mayoral candidate of Nightvale. (I can't figure out which one is which though.)

Mechzalcoatl only has one head.

Though I'd think Cybertiamat is more likely to be a reference to the five-headed Tiamat from D&D

Cybertiamat's heads are multicoloured, just like D&D Tiamat's (She's the god of the Chromatic Dragons, so has one head representing each colour), so...yeah, almost certainly.
