Comics this week

Street Fighter II Turbo #10- The long awaited fight between Sagat and Ryu was the main action this issue. It did not disappoint. The fight went back and fro and the duo showed great respect for each other. At the end, Ryu came out tops as expected and it setup the action for Ryu vs Bison next issue. Good action but Udon really need to do something about the back-story. Usually it’s a hit-and-miss affair and the back-story on Q was just terrible. If you don’t have something good for the back-story, then don’t do it.

Incorruptible #1- After turning the ultimate hero into the ultimate villain in Irredeemable, writer Mark Waid now decide to reverse the situation in Incorruptible. In this reverse Irredeemable series, Waid is going to reform the world’s ultimate villain, Max Damage, into the world’s greatest hero. Now Mark Waid always has a knack for writing interesting and entertaining stories but I can’t help but feel the gimmick in this series. The comparison between Incorruptible and Irredeemable is inevitable and I don’t know if that is a good thing. Still, it will be interesting.
