A spinoff series to Irredeemable, this action comic stars a man named Max Damage who was once a terrible villain. In the past, Plutonian was the hero of the world, only to turn and kill millions of people, with Max as a witness. Since then Max has turned good, though his dark past is sure to haunt him. For help, he has a masked sidekick colorfully called Jailbait, a young woman who is dedicated but perhaps a bit unsteady. In this story line, Alana Patel, the girlfriend of Plutonian, has written a tell-all biography that could be very dangerous in the wrong hands, since it describes Max's weaknesses. Incorruptible is entertaining to those familiar with the superhero tropes of switching the good and bad sides. Diaz's stylish art gives everyone suitably superheroic bulges and curves. (Feb.)
