GoD List Banner

Each and every week “No! No! No!” MK2Fac3 and “Lord Mackleroy” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of August 29, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

While off at wrestling bootcamp, I learned a many things. I learned the art of the double turn, how to properly hip toss my opponents, while transitioning into the “No Lock.” Yes, I learned a lot of things, but the one think I didn’t learn was how to manage my time properly. Still working on that, but until then, let’s talk about some comic books since that’s what you’re all here for. Ladies and gentlemen, this ain’t ballet! This… is… THE GoD LIST!!!

Written by Mark Waid

BOOM! Studios
Release Date: September 20, 2011
Cover Price: $74.99

Not everyone can handle being legendary. We see this in the everyday lives of our celebrities. Some go about their private lives quietly, and others tend to revel in the spotlight at all times. That kind of constant attention can have a severe affect on a person, changing them in ways they never thought possible. In Mark Waid‘s Irredeemable, the worlds greatest superhero, a man of unflappable courage and strength, undergoes such a change after reaching his breaking point.

For those who have not yet had the chance to dive into Waid’s fantastic series, consider this: What would you do if the most powerful being on Earth was hunting you down? Where would you run to when he can hear your heart’s specific beat all around the globe? The surviving members of Paradigm, a team of the world’s greatest superheroes, are faced with this challenge when the man who built their team suddenly becomes the world’s most egregious villain.

What if a Superman-like hero turned against the world and thought only of himself and started causing mayhem and death and destruction? That is the world Mark Waid creates in his series Irredeemable.

Irredeemable #29 picks up when the Plutonian comes back to Earth after being imprisoned on an alien world and then imprisoned in an insane asylum that is in a star.

We also see the President of the United States in a meeting with a representative from Japan who offers the U.S. a deal that will reduce the world’s population by one-third.

Written by: Mark Waid
Artist: Diego Barreto
Covers by Paul Azaceta and Crisscross
BOOM! Studios
Price: $3.99
Releases date: May 5, 2010

What would the body count be if Superman lost his mind? Mark Waid and Diego Barreto’s Irredeemable takes us into a disturbing universe where the world’s most powerful superhero has gone rogue and the body count climbs into the millions.

Produced by BOOM! Studios and nominated for an Eisner Award, Irredeemable features the super team The Paradigm, led by the all-powerful Plutonian. As the Plutonian suddenly goes rogue and begins a mass slaughter, the rest of the Paradigm struggle to reel him in as civilization slowly collapses. In Irredeemable #13, we catch up with Bette Noir, one of the few remaining free members of the Paradigm as she catches up with her father in a refugee camp. There, she confesses to him that she had the opportunity to stop the Plutonian, but didn’t because it meant admitting infidelity to her husband. Even at the end of her tearful confession, her father refuses to forgive her for her incredibly selfish act.

Incorruptible 02Incorruptible #2
Written by Mark Waid
Art by Jean Diaz
Cover Art by Dennis Calero (Cover A); Rafael Albuquerque (Cover B); Jeffrey Spokes (Cover C)
BOOM! Studios
Price: $3.99; Release date: January 19, 2010

Previously in Incorruptible

Until recently, Max Damage headed the FBI’s most wanted list. Then mankind’s premier defender, the Plutonian, went berserk and blew up the FBI.

Something happened in the moment of Plutonian’s transformation, something Max isn’t talking about yet…but it was a transformative moment for Max, as well. After weeks of disappearance, Max has resurfaced, apparently having rededicated his life to superheroism. Max’s sidekick, the severely underage Jailbait, is — to put it mildly — unhappy with his bizarre decision. Max’s former enemy, police lieutenant Louis Armadale, is skeptical of Max’s new path…but he’s willing to listen, eager to find out just what set this former supercriminal on his new path…

The second issue of Incorruptible continues to give us more information on Max Damage, revealing more on his super power through a clever shaving scene with him and Jailbait that I really enjoyed. Speaking of Jailbait, I find her parts (no pun intended) hilarious and whenever she comes on-panel I light up with excitement.

BOOM! Studios
Price: $3.99; Release date: January 27, 2010

What if the world’s greatest superhero became the world’s greatest supervillain?

Previously in Irredeemable

The Plutonian, Earth’s most powerful and beloved hero, has gone rogue. In the past few weeks, tens of millions of innocents have died at his hands as he has rampaged across the planet. His former teammates, the Paradigm, have been searching far and wide for some way to stop him. For now their best defense is Survivor, one of their own, who has absorbed his dead twin’s powers and has forced the Plutonian into retreat — and, unwittingly, into the hands of Modeus, Plutonian’s former arch-enemy, who now secretly inhabits the body of Plutonian’s young sidekick.

Meanwhile, it’s evident to everyone in the Paradigm — including her husband Gilgamos — that Bette Noir has been keeping some staggering secrets….

So far I’ve been loving the job Mark Waid has been doing on Irredeemable, it’s been my favorite BOOM! book along with another Mark Waid written series, Incorruptible. Being a life-long Superman fan, it’s fun to see what the character would be like if he turned on the world.
