Mark Waid is one of my favorite comic book writers. At one point I looked back on my comic-reading history and realized that so many books I loved were written by him and I didn't realize it. He's written a lot of great stuff. If you want a taste, try Kingdom Come or Superman: Birthright.
My friend Patrick O'Connor and I have repeatedly discussed Mark's Incorruptible and Irredeemable books. I argue that Incorruptible is a great story about how difficult it can be to strive for perfection and the strange, very personal reasons why we sometimes want to do "what's right."
O'Connor came up with the idea of discussing the two books with Mark Waid at a comic book convention. Mark agreed and the three of us shared a stage at San Diego Comic Con on July 11, 2015. It was great! I was nervous but Mark is a really nice guy and it was great to have a chance to ask him about the books. I think the best part was how it was obvious that O'Connor favors Irredeemable but I like Incorruptible much more.
I'm adding this one to my list of Greatest Hits. Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen and if you were there, let me know if you enjoyed it!
