Review: Incorruptible #7

There is shocking ending to this issue.

No Caption Provided
Incorruptible continues the story of Max Damage trying to turn his life of crime around. As we continue to see the fallout of the world's former greatest hero, the Plutonian, Max's mission isn't getting any easier.
 

The Good

Each month I continue to be impressed at how well this concept is working. We've seen villains gone good and vice versa time and time again. With Max Damage and the Plutonian, it feels like something new. We're continuing to see the different layers to Max as we find out more about his relationship with Jailbait and the way his powers work. He truly wants to do the right thing now and it's not going to be easy.
 
Being that this book is essentially a spin-off or the flipside of Irredeemable, it's great seeing the subtle references to events going on in that book. And you may have heard it before but there is quite the shocking cliffhanger ending in this issue.
 

The Bad

I'm still trying to get used to Horacio Domingues' art. It is by far not bad but just has a different feel than we saw in the earlier issues. It does have a nice "superhero" feel but it almost seems like Max looks a little...cartoony. He just doesn't look as tough as I remember him looking earlier. 
 

The Verdict - 4.5/5

Month after month I simply enjoy this book. I think I might actually prefer this one over Irredeemable. Max may be on the road to being a good guy but it's not going to be a short journey. Even thought Max is trying to be a good guy, you can't help but wonder if he'll be able to keep this up? Will he be able to operate without crossing the line. And of course the big question is, when will he face off against the Plutionian again? 
 
Incorruptible is a great fun series that's worth checking out. It's a fresh take on heroes and villains that isn't tied to decades of continuity. You definitely should be reading this.

Meh. 
 
2.5/5 
 
Max is an interesting concept but at the end of the day, he hasn't actually done anything interesting.  Irredeemable at least took a new twist on what we already had and had lots of interesting moments.  The only interesting Incorruptible moments were like four issues ago. 
 
You still have a likeable protagonist.  You still have an interesting power set but the story itself is just shrug inducing.
