TItle says it all. Just discovered these two books from Boom! Studios and wanted to know if they were as good as my research says they are. Considering the writer, I dont doubt it but I wanted to know what you guys thought. Thanks!

They're pretty good, actually. A friend suggested I read Irredeemable and I was hooked from the very start.

Irredeemable is good, but it starts to drag after about 10 issues. Incorruptible is far better and, to me, hasn't dragged at all.

@ArturoCalaKayVee: I'd say Incorruptible is a different kind of comic to Irredeemable. I can't really say which is better because I just can't decide, really.

@sesquipedalophobe: How are they different?

@ArturoCalaKayVee: Irredeemable shows aspects of having too much power, the road to Plutonian's madness and having parts parodying an excited Overman accepted and misunderstood. Incorruptible, to me, shows redemption in a man so despicable it blows everyone's minds. He wanted to burn the world and now he's putting out the fires. They're just both very refreshing. They're more parallel in story-telling than they are competing for a few dollars.

Just finished reading irredeemable, it ruined superman for me in the sense that superman is a immature idea that if played realistically would never be a hero or even inspiring. Tony is literally what I perceive Clark to be if I where a little kid and didn't take it seriously.
