CBR Review: Irredeemable #17

I recently reviewed Irredeemable #17 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "At the Baltimore Comic Con a couple of weeks ago, Mark Waid was asked about what’s coming up in Irredeemable and reacted as such when he mentioned issue 17 and the revelation of why Modeus hates the Plutonian: 'Waid shuddered and said he had to take a long, long hot shower and scrub with a wire brush after he wrote that secret.' Well, issue 17 has arrived, the secret is out, and I don’t need a shower, but the revelation is indeed disturbing and screwed up, even for a comic that’s had its fair share of disturbing and screwed up revelations. And, yet, the explanation for Modeus’s obsession and hatred of the Plutonian is so simple and elegant that it makes complete sense."
