BOOM! celebrates 10 Years of Evil with The Complete Irredeemable Deluxe Edition Library Kickstarter

Ten years ago, master storyteller Mark Waid – aided across more than 60 issues by founding artist and Eisner Award nominee Peter Krause alongside other artistic collaborators including Diego Barreto, Marcio Takara, Paul Azaceta, and more – delivered the long-awaited final chapter to the Eisner Award-winning saga that brought the once-sterling world of superheroes to new depths of darkness: Irredeemable.

Now, BOOM! brings the three interlocking narratives of the Irredeemable mythos – the original Irredeemable run, plus its hit companion series, Incorruptible, and the spiritual successor co-created by Waid and Krause, Insufferable – together for the first time in The Complete Irredeemable Deluxe Edition Library.

It is available now on Kickstarter collecting each series in deluxe hardcovers along with limited edition printings of the first issues with all-new artwork by InHyuk Lee. The campaign also features upgrades and extras featuring new contributions from John Cassaday, Howard Chaykin, Barry Kitson, Waid, and Krause.

Over the course of the pre-order campaign, BOOM! Studios will be unveiling even more surprises with Stretch Goals that include brand-new covers for all three hardcover volumes by original series cover artist and Eisner Award winner John Cassaday and the promise of  “a major announcement for the future of the Irredeemable franchise” with more to be revealed over the next 30 days.
