While I can admit that I haven’t been following Mark Waid’s Irredeemable or it’s companion title, Incorruptible as of late, I have been a fan of the story since it’s beginning.
What happens when the world’s greatest hero becomes its greatest villain? It’s a fascinating question and one that’s been asked a lot in comics, but rarely has the answer been as satisfying as Waid’s.
The question now is this: Will BOOM be able to replace the solid performing book with an equally interesting creator-owned title? As much as I hate to see this book end, if it can open up a slot in the BOOM pubishing roster for them to take a chance on something just as compelling, then there may be a silver lining here.
Like all good things, Irredeemable had to come to an end eventually, but I think it will be a series that will live on for a long time in paperback. Hopefully if Mr. Richie is listening, an omnibus hardcover might be in our future as well.
At the very least I think a portfolio set of our proposed titles is in order.
