    My on gripe: In a recent interview with Mark Waid, he described this special as a kind of recap/jumping on point for new readers as well as giving some new info to existing fans. I don't see this as much of a jumping on point. It was really focused on addressing minor questions from the Irredeemable Universe. This isn't really an “annual” issue because it's normal length. Not sure why we have to have a separate issue and have to skip a month on the main title. Nevertheless, this is a fun issue for existing readers; but if you want to jump on, just start with the first trade. Read Full Review
