Review: Incorruptible #11

What does Max Damage find out about the Plutonian in this issue?

The story of Max Damage, the former number one bad guy now turned good continues to keep me hooked month after month. 

The Good 

Incorruptible and Irredeemable have both been stellar books from the beginning. Max Damage is still trying to do the right thing after Earth's most powerful hero turned on everyone. It may sound cliche but Mark Waid has proven for eleven issues now that it's far from that. We also see in this issue the art by Marcio Takara which I have to say I prefer over Horacio Domingues. Domingues' art sometimes took an almost cartoony feel and Takara's art makes the character look as bold as I expect them to. 
In terms of the story, we get some more back-story involving Alana Patel and her connection to the Plutonian. She also drops a little bombshell on Max that brought a smile to my face. I can't wait for the next issue. 

The Bad 

My biggest problem though out the entire series has been the art. While I do think that Taraka's art is quite an improvement for the characters in this book, some of the colors felt too...colorful. There were lots of purple skies during this issue. It looks very nice but that along with a couple other panels, just felt like too much. 

The Verdict - 4.5/5 

I love this book. I have a hard time determining if I enjoy this book more than Iredeemable. It's a tough decision. I really like where things are going now and I am eagerly waiting for that inevitable crossover between the two books. If you haven't been reading this, pick up the trades and get caught up.
