The news comes a day after BOOM! launched a Kickstarter campaign for a new deluxe edition of the original three series. The deluxe edition will be the first hardcover edition of the trilogy, and within 24 hours it had accumulated over $100,000 in pledges from over 600 backers.
BOOM! Studios launched Irredeemable in 2009, and it soon became BOOM!’s best-selling series (see “Mark Waid’s ‘Incorruptible’”), with help from a teaser campaign that stated "Mark Waid Is Evil." Netflix announced in March that it is developing a film based on the first two volumes (see “Film Based on ‘Incorruptible’ and ‘Irredeemable’”).
