Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...a must read..." — The Express-Times

"Irredeemable most definitely stands out as something new. I highly recommend picking it up." — Ain't It Cool News

"...Waid, whose past work has always been able to find the emotional core in heroes that both attracts us to them and sometimes makes us uncomfortable, has been doing some of his best work in Irredeemable." — Comics Alliance

"It's a fantastic ride that shouldn't be missed out on. Looking for heroes who stand tall and act mighty beyond the mortal reach? You'll find them here, but boy are they flawed." — Comic Addiction

"Not just another dismantling of the mythology, Irredeemable is a masterful tale of the fall of a great hero..." — Project Fanboy

"Make sure you pick this up. Irredeemable is unrelenting in its flow, its shocks, its power and its pure brilliance." — 32 Pages

"Mark Waid's Irredeemable continues to be one of the most explosive maxi-series of the modern era...it's everything ultimately classic about superheroes rolled up and served in an enticing new skin." — Multiversity Comics

While the trope has been done many many times, Mark Waid and Peter Krause deliver a very good take on the hero switching sides. Here, the Plutonian loses it. Seriously. We are introduced to this world and the many twists in it. I enjoy Mark Waid's world-building and can't wait to see how this book evolves. There are tons of things readers still don't know and I hope its a slow burn. The artwork by Peter Krause is solid super-hero fare. Overall, a very good book.
