What's to Love: Mark Waid is not only our former editor-in-chief, but is also one of our favorite storytellers in comics, having amassed a long list of critically acclaimed hits in his 20-year career and writing such iconic characters as Superman, Captain America, Batman, The Flash, and Wonder Woman. Waid earned a legion of fans because his stories tended to ground seemingly infallible heroes, and in titles like DC's Kingdom Come, Gorilla Comics' Empire, and our own Irredeemable, he showed the other side of what it's like to wear the capes and tights. We are proud to present Waid's award-nominated Irredeemable in a new collection of oversized, deluxe hardcovers for existing and new fans to enjoy!What It Is: When the Plutonian, the world's greatest superhero, snaps and turns into the world's greatest villain, only his former teammates have a chance at stopping his rampage.
