Book Reviews: Irredeembale Vol 7 + H.P. Lovecraft Omnibus 3

Irredeemable Vol 7 created and written by Mark Waid

This was a disappointing volume as Tony escapes his prison while going large ham Roger Moore era Bond villain. Meanwhile Quibt and Modeus try to stop Tony escaping. It all ends on a cliffhanger. This was all very average and had way too much large ham Tony. Where have all the interesting characters and plots gone? This book is far more interesting showing other characters reactions to Tony. The only real point of interest in this is the terrifying revelation of Tony's true powers and what would happen if he ever realised there is far more to his powers than he knows.

H.P. Lovecraft Omnibus 3 The Haunter of the Dark

Lovecraft's writings are enjoyably creepy however they are plagued by sexism and racism.

The Rats in the Walls
A man finds out his family's dark secret in this horrific but very good story.

The Call of Cthulhu
A man pieces together a mystery of an undersea city and a mysterious being. Excellent.

The Dunwich Horror
Wilbur Whately is born under mysterious circumstances. He grows up too quickly and makes dark and terrible plans. Good.

The Colour out of Space
A meteorite crashes on a farm and devastates it. A very good creepy story.

The Haunter of the Dark
A man explores a deserted church and soon wishes he hasn't. Excellent.

The Thing on the Doorstep
An ill-fated marriage leads to horror. Ok.

The Shadow over Innsmouth
A young man visits a hated town that has not quite human occupants and learns dark secrets. Good.

The Shadow out of Time
A man suspects his mind was taken over by a creature from another time. Good.
