After Crossing $100,000 Mark in Under 24 Hours on Kickstarter, BOOM! Confirms New Chapter in the Eisner Award-Winning Superhero Saga
LOS ANGELES, CA (July 13, 2022)—Just 24 hours after the stratospheric launch of THE COMPLETE IRREDEEMABLE DELUXE EDITION LIBRARY on Kickstarter, BOOM! Studios is proud to announce that the series’ original creative team – master storyteller Mark Waid (Kingdom Come, World’s Finest) and multiple Eisner Award nominee Peter Krause (Power of Shazam!, We Only Kill Each Other) – will be reuniting in 2023 for an all-new series in the IRREDEEMABLE saga.
“What we can say is that it’s not set back in the day. It is a catch up on what the IRREDEEMABLE Universe is all these years later. All that said, I’m sure there’s a place for Plutonian in that story because it’s his story…” said writer Mark Waid in an exclusive interview with ComicBook.com. “It is an outgrowth of what you saw before. Pete and I are 10 years older and 10 years, hopefully, better at our jobs. So hopefully, it will continue to entertain.”
The news was revealed just moments ago, thanks to fan enthusiasm as the ongoing COMPLETE IRREDEEMABLE DELUXE EDITION LIBRARY pre-order campaign on Kickstarter surged past $100,000 in under 24 hours. BOOM! Studios is keeping the details of the new series under wraps, but will be revealing more about the highly anticipated return to the Eisner Award-winning IRREDEEMABLE franchise in the weeks and months to come.
“[With the original IRREDEEMABLE series] I was learning on the job again, it felt like. I just felt like a newcomer… [But] I’ve stayed very active in drawing comic books [since]. So I feel like the skill level is there. And obviously, I’ve made the changeover now to working digitally, which gives me a lot of freedom,” artist Peter Krause told ComicBook.com. “So I am really looking forward to getting back into the Irredeemable Universe with my full powers intact.”
The news also follows the recent announcement that Netflix is currently developing both IRREDEEMABLE and INCORRUPTIBLE as the foundation of a new feature film franchise from BAFTA Award-winning director Jeymes Samuel (The Harder They Fall), Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Kemp Powers (Soul), and producers Shawn Carter, James Lassiter, Stephen Christy, and Ross Richie.
Available for pre-order via Kickstarter through August 11, THE COMPLETE IRREDEEMABLE DELUXE EDITION LIBRARY collects each series in the IRREDEEMABLE saga in a comprehensive, deluxe hardcover format with new covers by Eisner Award winner John Cassaday (Star Wars), alongside highly limited, special-edition printings of each series’ long sold-out #1 issues – IRREDEEMABLE #1, INCORRUPTIBLE #1, and INSUFFERABLE #1 – each featuring all-new artwork by superstar cover artist InHyuk Lee (Amazing Spider-Man) in three distinct, collectible treatments.
