BOOM! Studios: Definitive Irredeemable, Vol. 1Definitive Irredeemable, Vol. 1
Written by Mark Waid
Art by Peter Krause, Diego Barreto
BOOM! Studios
Release Date: September 20, 2011
Cover Price: $74.99

Not everyone can handle being legendary. We see this in the everyday lives of our celebrities. Some go about their private lives quietly, and others tend to revel in the spotlight at all times. That kind of constant attention can have a severe affect on a person, changing them in ways they never thought possible. In Mark Waid‘s Irredeemable, the worlds greatest superhero, a man of unflappable courage and strength, undergoes such a change after reaching his breaking point.

For those who have not yet had the chance to dive into Waid’s fantastic series, consider this: What would you do if the most powerful being on Earth was hunting you down? Where would you run to when he can hear your heart’s specific beat all around the globe? The surviving members of Paradigm, a team of the world’s greatest superheroes, are faced with this challenge when the man who built their team suddenly becomes the world’s most egregious villain.

What if the world’s greatest superhero became the world’s greatest supervillain?

Previously in Irredeemable

The Plutonian, Earth’s most powerful and beloved hero, has gone rogue. In the past few weeks, tens of millions of innocents have died at his hands as he has rampaged across the planet. His former teammates, the Paradigm, have been searching far and wide for some way to stop him. For now their best defense is Survivor, one of their own, who has absorbed his dead twin’s powers and has forced the Plutonian into retreat — and, unwittingly, into the hands of Modeus, Plutonian’s former arch-enemy, who now secretly inhabits the body of Plutonian’s young sidekick.

Meanwhile, Bette Noir and her husband, Gilgamos, have been abducted by the alien hunter Orian, and to bargain for Gilgamos’s life, Bette has promised to reveal some of her secrets….

So far I’ve been loving the job Mark Waid has been doing on Irredeemable, it’s been my favorite BOOM! book along with another Mark Waid written series, Incorruptible. Being a life-long Superman fan, it’s fun to see what the character would be like if he turned on the world.

Deal: Six Feet Under – The Complete Series DVD Set For $60

In this last day of Amazon’s week of HBO DVD deals, today’s Gold Box spotlight item is Six Feet Under – The Complete Series Gift Set for $59.99 (down 67% off the original price of $179.90).

The set 25-disc set contains all five seasons of the Alan Ball heavy dramatic series, plus two bonus soundtracks, audio commentary, deleted scenes, episode previews and recaps, and several featurettes (you might recognize creator Ball’s name now for his latest HBO offering True Blood). As far as packaging goes, this one’s genius: the top of the box looks like a stone grave marker with the show’s name and years of running (2001-2005) surrounded by grass, with the rest of the box made to look like dirt. The set also comes with an exclusive illustrated booklet with character obituaries and memories from the show’s creators.

Math time: At a total of $59.99, that works out to just under $12 per season, which usually run at nearly $40 each, so this is a super savings.

For those of you not familiar with the show, it’s main selling point right now might be that it starred Michael C. Hall, known now for playing the serial killer who offs serial killers on Showtime’s Dexter. In Six Feet Under, after their father dies, two brothers must help their meek mother Ruth (Frances Conroy) by running the family business — a funeral home. Hall’s character David, who’s in the closet, is actually the good son, while prodigal son Nate (Peter Krause) returns home reluctantly to serve as co-director of the funeral home.
