Advanced Review: Irredeemable #1

We’ve seen Mark Waid write the hero as bad guy before.  His take on heroes as villains in Kingdom Come shows the hero stepping over the bounds as a revolt against their older counterparts, and trying to figure their place in a changing world.  And while there are others who have written openly violent tales of the good guy doing bad things, no one has ever stopped to ponder the question, “What made this person evil?”   In the case of Irredeemable, Waid dives into the answer and brings readers along for the ride down that dark path.

Review: Caped #1

Ever since the introduction of the kid sidekick and the “pal” character in superhero comics, kids young and old have fantasized about being that person.  If the superhero world were real, and you couldn’t be the secret pal of the hero, would you be willing to answer his phone calls and pick up her dry cleaning?
