The finale is here! Whether or not you’ve stuck with this series in the long run, if you started it and dropped it part-way through, you ABSOLUTELY should pick this issue up. This is the perfect conclusion to the Mark Waid-penned series, ending in a way that was both unexpected yet, in retrospect, was foreshadowed in some particularly devious and meta ways.
Or – “How The Plutonian Got His Groove Back…” The whole planet has gone to Aitch-Ee-Double-Hockeysticks in a handcart, and the few remaining heroes still haven’t dealt with the threat of the returned Plutonian. Is there any hope for the world?
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.
This stands as the final issue of the “Crossover that Wasn’t” as the conclusion of Irredeemable #33 is patently ignored and instead we’re treated to yet another issue of (admittedly good) exploration of the linked origin of Max Damage and the Plutonian.
Press Release The epic match-up between the world’s greatest hero-turned-villain and his arch villain-turned-hero is here! This December, read both IRREDEEMABLE and INCORRUPTIBLE for the full story on The Plutonian vs. Max Damage and their superhero adventures. These epic new titles from BOOM! Studios are both written by Mark Waid (KINGDOM COME, THE TRAVELER) with INCORRUPTIBLE’s art by Marcio Takara and IRREDEEMABLE’s art by Diego Barreto. BOOM! Studios offers the first part of this four issue crossover in the 22-page issue of IRREDEEMABLE #32 and the story continues in INCORRUPTIBLE #25. This action-filled arc concludes in IRREDEEMABLE #33 and INCORRUPTIBLE
Last time we saw the Plutonian, we had to check to see if we had accidentally gone cross-eyed. This month find out why there are two Plutonians, what the unlikely team of Qubit and Modeus will bring about, and what new science fiction explanations Mark Waid will use to flesh out his universe!
Press Release BOOM! Studios’ bestselling Eisner & Harvey Award-nominated IRREDEEMABLE gets sensational father/son team Eduardo & Diego Barreto to take over art duties for fan-favorite artist Peter Krause beginning with IRREDEEMABLE #29!
What happens when the world’s most powerful superhero turns into the world’s most ruthless villain? Irredeemable examines the fine line between superheroes and supervillains and deconstructs the whole hero-genre in the process.
