This collects the first twelve issues (or the first 3 TPBs) of Boom Studios' Irredeemable, the ongoing superhero series from Mark Waid. It is now available for 47$ from Amazon.



I have heard lot of praise for this series, but never got around to reading this. Has anyone read Irredeemable, and can give me their opinions of it? Should I buy this? :unsure:

It's pretty good. Definitely in my current top 5. Get it. Here's the first five pages from CBR.

I got caught up to the current issues, so now I think I'll try Incorruptible.

Irredeemable is great, yes.
Waid has always been a good writer.

I'm definitively intrigued by the concept behind both Irredeemable & Incorruptible so these are both on my must read list. Now I just have to find free time to read them.

Keeping seeing this series come up as a read so I guess its time I cave and at least check it out! Problem is I already have around 500 other comics to read and don't find the time to even get that list down to much :P

Like I said Irredeemable is one of the best things I've read in the last years. And still one of the series where I look forward to every new issue.

I'm now in the process of catching up with Incorruptible. I'm now at issue 10. Till this issue the artwork is just bad (they are now at penciller number 3). But I guess, as the series is also still running, they will find (found) someone :)

Irredeemable is about a super-hero gone evil, while Incorruptible is the reverse: transformation of a supervillian into a superhero.

Initial pre-publication publicity for Irredeemable, the parent series of Incorruptible, utilized the tagline "Mark Waid is Evil! Mark Waid is Irredeemable!". Promotion for Incorruptible follows a similar vein, with the use of the tagline "Mark Waid was Evil, Mark Waid is Incorruptible"

I have read the first 12issues collected in the Definitive Irredeemable Vol. 1, and I must say this is one of the finest deconstruction of the super-hero genre that I have read. This is a must read. Go for it immediately!!

p.s. I am eagerly awaiting Definitive Irredeemable Vol. 2. Any info on the ETA?

Yeah, I've known about both titles for some years now, yet just haven't gotten around to reading them. I'll probably pick them both up within the next month or so though.
