CBR Review: Irredeemable #11

I recently reviewed Irredeemable #11 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The first story of this issue, drawn by guest artist Diego Barreto, has Bette Noir revealing the secrets of her relationship with the Plutonian to Orian, an alien hunter enlisted by the US government to kill the Plutonian. For the past six months, Waid has been hinting at a deeper relationship between Bette and the Plutonian despite Bette’s relationship with fellow hero Gilgamos. Bette’s revelations aren’t too surprising as a result, but the manner in which events play contain some solid ideas. Her flirting with the Plutonian, though, doesn’t come across as organic and witty, falling closer to porn flick dialogue. What happens before and after Bette’s coming on to Tony is well-written, but how it happens is cringe-worthy dialogue."
