Irredeemable #8 (Boom! – Waid / Krause)
Casualties are in the millions. Panic has swept through the world. And the Paradigm have learned that in order to stop Plutonian they may have to embrace history’s deadliest criminal. Can Plutonian’s nemesis, the super criminal Modeus, be trusted in the face of Armageddon?
Mark Waid continues marching towards the end of his version of the ultimate dark super hero fairy tale. Eight issues in, the reader has a good sense of the grip of terror that the Plutionian has the world in. This ish has secrets come forth from the members of paradigm and they find out that the Plutonian does in deed have a weakness.
Mark Waid still rocks this comic, but it is reading much more like a traditional super-hero comic and less of the pressure cooker that it started out at. It is good, but it’s not Kingdom Come. Truly though if you have been missing this, it really is worth your time.
Issue grade: B+
