Review: My Bad Volume 2 #1

My Bad Volume 2 #1

Someone is killing capes—or would be, if they were better at it. Will this crisis draw the crime-fighting Chandelier out of retirement? PLUS! Emperor King adopts a new costumed identity so he can get a date! My Bad Volume 2 #1 brings back the madcap world created by Mark Russell and Bryce Ingman in a first issue that’s as funny as it pitch sounds.

Composed of a series of shorts all tied together, My Bad Volume 2 #1 has two focuses, the murders and the date. Each brings their own insanity to the table and each will get you to laugh. These are characters who are such exaggerations they go from unlikeable to actually funny. None of these characters are good people, they’re the extremes of modern superheroes stretched even further. The powers, the personalities, the issues, are all here expanded and pumped full of jokes.

It’s hard to read My Bad Volume 2 #1 and not smile and laugh. It takes itself seriously and also sees itself as a spoof of modern superheroes. And it works so well. It, and other comics like it, are built on a love of the genre and what makes heroes and villains larger than life. It’s not just their powers but their personality quirks and the strange lives they live. Russell and Ingman take that all to the extremes for a great result.

The assassination attempts, the date, like early Tarantino films, the various short stories all come together to build a bigger picture and cohesive narrative. But, each of the segments can work on their own too delivering enough for the punchline and packed with silliness. This is a comic that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

The art by Peter Krause and Joe Orsak with color by Kelly Fitzpatrick by Paul Little and lettering Rob Steen is solid. Each character’s design is as exaggerated as their personality challenging the reader as to where to look for the jokes. Add in a brilliant design for the assassin and his victims and it’s a comic whose laughs come from all over.

My Bad Volume 2 #1 left me with a smile on my face as a reader and got me to actually laugh out loud multiple times. It’s a silly love letter to superheroes that loves its genre and has no problem making fun of it too. A definite must get for those who need a pick me up.

Mark Waid and Peter Krause’s Irredeemable returns in 2023

Not long after the launch of The Complete Irredeemable Deluxe Edition Library on Kickstarter, BOOM! Studios is proud to announce that the series’ original creative team – master storyteller Mark Waid and multiple Eisner Award nominee Peter Krause – will be reuniting in 2023 for an all-new series in the Irredeemable saga. The series catches up on what has happened in that universe all these years later.

BOOM! Studios is keeping the full details of the new series under wraps, but will be revealing more about the highly anticipated return to the franchise in the weeks and months to come.

The news also follows the recent announcement that Netflix is currently developing both Irredeemable and Incorruptible as the foundation of a new feature film franchise  from BAFTA Award-winning director Jeymes Samuel, Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Kemp Powers, and producers Shawn Carter, James Lassiter, Stephen Christy, and Ross Richie.

BOOM! celebrates 10 Years of Evil with The Complete Irredeemable Deluxe Edition Library Kickstarter

Ten years ago, master storyteller Mark Waid – aided across more than 60 issues by founding artist and Eisner Award nominee Peter Krause alongside other artistic collaborators including Diego Barreto, Marcio Takara, Paul Azaceta, and more – delivered the long-awaited final chapter to the Eisner Award-winning saga that brought the once-sterling world of superheroes to new depths of darkness: Irredeemable.

Now, BOOM! brings the three interlocking narratives of the Irredeemable mythos – the original Irredeemable run, plus its hit companion series, Incorruptible, and the spiritual successor co-created by Waid and Krause, Insufferable – together for the first time in The Complete Irredeemable Deluxe Edition Library.

It is available now on Kickstarter collecting each series in deluxe hardcovers along with limited edition printings of the first issues with all-new artwork by InHyuk Lee. The campaign also features upgrades and extras featuring new contributions from John Cassaday, Howard Chaykin, Barry Kitson, Waid, and Krause.

Over the course of the pre-order campaign, BOOM! Studios will be unveiling even more surprises with Stretch Goals that include brand-new covers for all three hardcover volumes by original series cover artist and Eisner Award winner John Cassaday and the promise of  “a major announcement for the future of the Irredeemable franchise” with more to be revealed over the next 30 days.

Mark Waid is Still Evil?

It’s been 10 years since Irredeemable ended, could we be getting more? BOOM! Studios has released the below teasing something is coming. The series was written by Mark Waid and featured art by Peter Krause and Diego Barreto.

The comic followed the world’s greatest superhero, the Plutonian, as he turns evil. Another series, Incorruptible, was also released and followed Plutonians greatest enemy during Plutonian’s fall. A third series was teased but never released through BOOM!.

Irredeemable ran for 37 issues beginning in 2009 and ended in May 2012. The pre-release included the saying “Mark Waid is Evil!” and included a limited edition t-shirt.
