    "Irredeemable" is shaping up to be a good examination of what would happen if Superman were to turn evil, but Waid is also managing to avoid most of the pitfalls a concept like that has. So far, it's been an enjoyable, darkly funny, and engaging read. Well worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Irredeemable #4 is just another issue in a series that seems to be going nowhere and appears to relish in portraying innocent masses murdered en masse. It has excellent artwork and a story that has potential, but this issue doesn't reach that potential at all. Read Full Review
