Brit is Robert Kirkman writing a Savage Dragon style comic. The whole thing is bombastic, with rapid pacing, weird character development and forced expository dialogue. The whole thing is pretty goofy, and really pales in comparison to Kirkman's Invincible book, but it's still a worth while extension of the Invincible U. Tony Moore and Cliff Rathburn provide some really great art, and there are some fun, well illustrated fight scenes to help move things along through the confusing and over-the-t ...more

With the success of The Walking Dead, all of Kirkman's older titles are getting renewed interest. This one was a mildly entertaining read about an aging military man-weapon whose "super power" is his indestructibilty. But he's not super strong, so he really just wears down his enemies, which is kind of amusing. It's very dude-centric, but luckily, it lacks most of the aggressive sexism that we have to suffer through in action movies. That being said, OF COURSE he has a "stripper girlfriend" who ...more

My first introduction to Brit came in the pages of Invincible, where he appears in the aftermath of an extremely bloody battle between a Serpent Society ripoff and a few of the weaker members of the Guardians of the Globe. Brit bursts in, sees the bodies piled everywhere and says something like - 'wow, they made a real mess' - which I thought was funny. So I read the trade.

Brit - short for Brittany, he's not British - works for the government. He's really old. He's also a newlywed, having just m

Some graphic novels explore deep issues, others redefine characters or the way comic books are written for ever more, but sometimes (to paraphrase Freud) a comic is just a comic. BRIT falls into the latter category and wonderfully so. The art is bold and vivid, the fight scenes panoramic, the plotlines frequently bizarre and there are explosions. Lots and lots of explosions.

Really enjoyable, action-packed superhero/spy stuff. Right in Kirkman's wheelhouse. More broadly drawn characters than in similar books like Invincible, but still good.

Bastante chulo. Bueno es un buen cómic de acción y tal... gamberrete, divertido. Buena opción si eso es lo que buscas

Not as good as Kirkman's other works, but still good enough to get 3 stars. See my review here:

An interesting spin off/stand alone from the world of Invincible. If you ever wanted to know more about the secondary characters in the Invincible series, this is a good look into some of that.
