If you would rather read your comics in electronic form, then you’ll be happy to hear that Boom! Studios has placed Mark Waid’s Irredeemable comic on the iPhone for all to buy. It’s all part of the deal with Comixology – which means you’ll need to buy the $1.99 Comixology app before buying the 99-cent comic.

“In superhero comics, pretty much everyone who’s called upon to put on a cape is, at heart, emotionally equipped for the job. I reject that premise,” said series writer and BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Mark Waid. “IRREDEEMABLE is, in a way, my third and most complex chapter on the cost of superheroics – a pulp adventure tale of horror exploring how the lessons we learn about right and wrong as children can become warped and twisted when challenged by the realities of the adult world.”

The first four issues are available through the Comixology Comics App, now.

    Hi guys —

    Just a quick correction. The app is “Comics”, not “comiXology”, and costs $0.99. The app called comiXology is actually a print-tracking application.

    The app called Comics is the digital comics app.

    Here’s the link to the correct app:

    Thanks!
