Newsarama has an interesting interview with Mark Waid, where the scribe reveals that he is ending his popular Irredeemable and Incorruptible series from BOOM! Studios in May 2012.
I’m just stretched thin right now both personally and professionally, and I live in mortal fear that I’m going to overstay my welcome on these books. Moreover, I feel that Max Damage’s character arc is reaching its end in Incorruptible. And in Irredeemable, I’ve long known what the end of that series is, and lately, it’s as if all the characters are moving into position for it whether I want them to or not. So let’s go out big and grand, I say.
The interview goes on, and Waid does tease that there could be a television deal in the works, though I doubt we’ll see mothers and babies burn up on screen.
I know there is going to be more than one person who is heartbroken over this news, and that’s why we have a comment section below. The final issue for Irredeemable will be #37, while Incorruptible will end with issue #30.
