    Reviewer Comments:
    IRREDEEMABLE #8 is another great issue in a series of consistently great issues.

    We learn the truth behind Scylla and Charybdis' shared powers, and if you think Tony looked surprised by Cary's ambush LAST issue, you should see him now! The plutonian gets some much deserved lumps!

    Waid juggles several plot-lines this issue. We have the Cary vs. Tony fight, Round II: This time it's super charged, as the main story. Within that, Cary and Tony each have their own flashbacks; Cary's reveals his true powers, Tony's reveals the event that pushed him completely off the edge. That's right, we finally find out what broke The Plutonian, and why he killed his sidekick, Samsara. Once again, Waid shows Tony as most vulnerable and relatable when he's at his worst. You can at least understand his actions, even if they cannot be condoned.

    Meanwhile, Qubit FINALLY finds his link to Modeus, and Gilgamos nears his own breaking point with Tony's obsession with his wife. Speaking of, just how far is Bette Noir willing to go to keep her affair a secret? This issue raises some scary possibilities.

    Peter Krause handles the art with his usual finesse. There are a lot of emotions in these pages and Krause depicts them masterfully on each character's face.

    We get all this, plus a last page that is both über creepy and painfully heartbreaking.

    Yeah, if you're not reading this book by now, you're nuts!
