    Some of this ends up not really mattering, because the upshot is that Plutonian is on Earth with his gang of villains, but if those panels aren't going to be clear, we could have used those panels to touch base with the folks on Earth. Read Full Review

    I'm sorry to hear that Peter Krause is leaving this series, as his involvement was one of the things that spurred me to pick it up in the first place, but I hope Diego Barreto is planning to stay on as full-time artist. The two of them complement each other well, and the book has maintained a successful, consistent feel with them trading pages. Let's hope it stays that way. Read Full Review

    If you have been following Irredeemable (as you should be), then issue 27 is a must read. Waid has worked through his mid-series slump, and things are picking up to be back on par with the excitement of the early issues. I'm very intrigued by where he'll go with it, and am definitely on board for this story, whereas 5 or so issues ago I had been wavering. Overall a solid 4 out of 5 stars for Irredeemable 27.

    Overall, not a bad issue, but not a great one. I found myself wishing for more from it. Read Full Review

    "Irredeemable" is a freight train that only wants to smash through barricades and get to a new destination. There's a through line that is well planned and thought out, but it all feels so spontaneous. Anything could happen in this world and that's the level of excitement a comic should have. These are super powered individuals, nothing should be rote. Here, we get a great blend of science and fiction to make a universe, and a very large one, come to life. Then it works on slowly being killed off as no one is safe while the Plutonian is still angry and confused. Read Full Review
