The Irredeemable Ant-Man
- I was lucky enough to find another gem hidden amongst the books that are stacked on top of my LCS's half-price trade table! I forgot how much I enjoyed this book when it was originally released. Make no mistake about it, if this book existed today with the same creative team as part of the Marvel NOW! or All-New Marvel NOW! banner, it would be a hit. Robert Kirkman writes great superhero stories. Period. Unfortunately for everybody, the Irredeemable Ant-Man's run was hidden in-between Civil War and World War Hulk and never really got the chance to grow it's own legs. It's a shame what happened to this book and an even bigger shame was how Marvel treated Eric O'Grady and his supporting cast. Seriously, was anybody from this book ever mentioned or heard from again aside for O'Grady?
I'm a huge fan of Phil Hester's art, so having his work paired with the Kirkman's writing was a huge bonus for me. Hester's art was a perfect compliment to Kirkman's style plus as a huge Invincible fan, throwing Cory Walker in there for the Mighty Avengers tie-in was a secondary bonus!
