Irredeemable #8 (Boom! Studios)
By Mark Waid, Peter Krause & Gene Ha

Last issue, Charybdis pulled out the reveal that he didn’t lose his powers with his brother’s death after all — if anything, he’s stronger… maybe even strong enough to take on the Plutonian solo. As he battles the fallen hero, we learn more about just why the Plutonian went bad, what final straw ended his life as a hero and turned him into something dark and terrifying. It’s a sad story, one almost as sad for him as it is for his victims. And as engaging as it is, in the end it’s still his fault, his choices that led to the downfall, which helps this story immensely. Peter Krause‘s art, as always, is great, and we get a nifty cover by Gene Ha (with a nice little subtle use of the background to illuminate Tony’s true nature. Fine issue, and a great series.
