Halfway through this issue I decided to drop this title.  There is zero subtlety in this story.  While that worked for Irredeemable, in this series I kept getting the feeling Waid was flicking me behind the ear while I read it, saying “See, a bad guy is going to be good.  Look, a bad guy is trying to be good.  It’s, like, totally the opposite of the other story.  Get it?  Get it?”

The dialog is wooden and beset with termites.  It really reads like an Irredeemable back story written by a less credible author.  The art is fine.  But there were pages of devestation in the wake of The Plutonian that should have moved me, but didn’t.  And I can forsee no plot twist or character development that would make the lead character any type of interesting to me.

Story: 2 - Average
Art: 4 - Very Good


  1. I agree completely.  The interaction with Jailbait has just become boring.  So now that he’s a good guy he cant touch her? What about the times before? He gets a do-over? I’m dropping this one.

  2. That’s what I was afraid of.  Thanks for the head’s up.  I’d rather not waste my money.

  3. @k5blazer: "But your honor, you can’t sen me to jail.  I don’t touch her inppropriately…anymore."  Apparenatly, in (I loathe his ridiculous name) Max Damage’s world, the statute of limitations is about 24 hours.

     @vadamowens: Any time.
