After reading this issue, it’s my opinion that Invincible is the best that Image Comics has on the stands today. For what could have been a simple hero knock-off, Kirkman puts his character through some fairly unordinary situations.

This issue opens with the Mauler Twins attempting to use America’s nuclear stockpile to their own advantage. In your ordinary storytelling fashion, it’s obvious that the hero is going to show up to save the day. But in the case of a book like Invincible and having a writer like Robert Kirkman at the helm, it’s nothing ordinary once Kid Omni-Man shows up.

Art on Invincible is by Ryan Ottley, who once again knocks it out of the park. It’s a good style, clean and crisp, with not too much detail thrown in. His pencils work great for this style of book.


This book continues to carry on a great story every month. Kirkman has been there since the beginning to bring a high-caliber story and it still continues on with this latest issue. As this has been a favorite for so long, I can’t help but recommend it to any who enjoy an original superhero story.
