Mark Waid's Eisner & Harvey Award-nominated series reaches new heights in this explosive issue! The Paradigm fought, dreamed, and wished for a world without Plutonian - and now they have it! But what Plutonian left in his absence is as horrifying as the Mad God himself. And far away, in the depths of space, Plutonian finds himself an unlikely captive in a terrifying extraterrestrial incarceration of torture and horror. How he'll gain freedom from captors even crazier than himself will send shock waves throughout the galaxy!

    So let's talk opinions. Finally a Modeus appearance. Been waiting for this for a while now. It seems that even a few galaxies of distance isn't enough to keep true love from dying. I'm really enjoying the set ups for the future in this story arc. While the threat of the Plutonian is not hovering over their heads, the Paradigm is starting to grow. (More cannon fodder when Tony does return.) I love the way the Plutonian is looking for peace and his mind is doing everything it can to help him achieve it. I wish there was some fighting or action scenes to pick up the excitement factor a bit. Still, we can't be doing battle all of the time. The art is, as always awesome. I love the colors. The kettle is definitely boiling and its looking like it can blow at any second. Can't wait to see what the result is. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it. Read Full Review

    Irredeemable, i can't quit you! And there's no good reason to even consider it. This may not be the best issue to jump on board, but who cares? You'll still love it even if you don't know everything that's going on just yet. Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Blake Petit Feb 8, 2011

    Peter Krause and Diego Barreto give us good art, with styles that compliment each other well and don't betray where one artist finished and the next takes over. The book is full of truly disturbing moments, powerful characters, and deep philosophical questions. This is the thinking man's superhero comic. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Scott Hunter Feb 5, 2011

    Cover A features The Plutonian standing in what appears to be a construction site, looking angry. I did not like this one. For starters, the illustration doesn't look much like the Plutonian from the book, indeed, he is only vaguely recognisable. Secondly, the cover has nothing to do with the contents of the book "" it is nothing more than a stock image, and not even a good one. I can only call it an awful cover "" it baffles me why they decided to include it. Cover B, thankfully, is much better, featuring the hero Survivor looking down at the mask of his lost brother, which is lying amongst some rubble. This cover actually relates to the plot, not the plot of this issue, specifically, but at least it has something to do with the an ongoing plot-thread of the series. Indeed, this would have been a great cover for last issue, and as it is it's still reasonable.Another Great Issue Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Feb 2, 2011

    Nice to see this series get its mojo back. It isn't a perfect issue, but I'm happy that it has rediscovered its slightly deviant nature because we have plenty of edgy superhero stories from Marvel/DC. But those big publishers usually won't do deviant and that creates a niche for this book. Read Full Review
