As you may notice in my review of Incorruptible #26, I’m a bit concerned over the nature of the crossover, which sparked a debate with my local comic book guy.
I had a conversation this past week with my Comic Book Shop Guy about Irredeemable and Incorruptible, and the nature of the current “crossover event.” While he hadn’t gotten around to reading it yet, he claimed the whole idea was absurd because the entire series was a crossover, and that while you could appreciate Irredeemable without reading Incorruptible, the opposite was impossible. I disagreed vehemently, claiming all they had in common was a shared universe. Eventually we came to a consensus that it was necessary to read the first issue or so of Irredeemable in order to appreciate and understand where Incorruptible came from, it wasn’t necessary to read ALL of Irredeemable to enjoy Incorruptible.
What are your thoughts? Do you read just one of the series, or both? Do you feel you’d get more by reading both of them?
