Fans have clamored for it, and they’ve listened! BOOM! Studios has announced the debut of the IrredeemablePremier Edition, a new series of oversized, deluxe hardcovers collecting the Eisner and Harvey Award-nominated comics by Mark Waid, Peter Krause, and Diego Barreto. Volume 1, collecting the first eight issues by Waid and Krause, is set to debut in October.
Waid has amassed a long list of critically acclaimed hits in his 20-year career, writing such iconic characters as Superman, Captain America, Batman, The Flash, and Wonder Woman. The prolific writer earned a legion of fans for stories that tended to ground seemingly infallible heroes, and in titles like DC’s Kingdom Come, Gorilla Comics’ Empire, and Irredeemable, he showed the other side of what it’s like to wear the capes and tights. Coupled with the fantastic art of Krause, Irredeemable was well received by critics and fans alike when it first debuted in 2009.
In Irredeemable, when the Plutonian, the world’s greatest superhero, snaps and turns into the world’s greatest villain, only his former teammates have a chance at stopping his rampage. But while on the run from the world’s most powerful and angry being, will these former teammates discover his secrets in time? How did he come to this? What became of the hope and promise once inside him? What happens to the world when its savior betrays it? What makes a hero irredeemable?
Irredeemable Premier Edition Vol. 1 hardcover (7.25” x 11.25”, 208 pages, full color) arrives in comic shops on October 28th and in bookstores November 3rd with a cover price of $29.99.
