After reading the first volume of Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker’s classic superhero comic “Invincible,” I just had to read the second volume of this fantastic series and see more of Mark Grayson and his family after the explosive and tragic revealation at the end of the first volume! “Invincible: Ultimate Collection Volume Two” is definitely one volume you do not want to put down!
What is the story?
After the tragic events in the first volume, Mark Grayson is starting to loo ...more

Lame, I know. Sorry. But honestly, Robert Kirkman knows how to pack a punch in both Invincible and The Walking Dead. But this isn’t about TWD. That’s all over the place. Let’s talk about my beloved Invincible. As you can see, I’m way behind in this series. I’ve just finished volume 2 which encompasses issues #s14-24 (with a few extras), while the series itself is up to issue #108? I’m no ...more
Sort of felt a bit overwhelmed by all the characters introduced in this volume, and I'm having a bit of trouble keeping track of all of th ...more
That being said, I was a bit let-down with Volume 2 in one respect. Volume 1 of Invincible read wonderfully both as individual issues and as a long-format collection. the 12 issues collected in the first book have a nice story arc involving Mark, his father, and their roles as heroes. One could sit down with Vol. 1 and read a complete f ...more
In the Afterward Kirkman mentions that this book "became a bit of a mess" with all the subplots going on, and he's right. Several plotlines are introduced and left open-ended (in addition to what came before in book #1). And there are also many little bits scattered in that aren't full plots but that practically scream THIS WILL BE IMPORTANT LATER. Add a #0 recap issue, and a summer special issue containing Origi ...more
Kirkman is so much better with Invincible, light and breezy with lots of humour and heart yet not restricted in the way Marvel/DC are with their Supers. We have frank violence and events have real repercussions. Many of the themes parallel those in ultimate Spider-Man yet Kirkman finds a different, equally real and compelling path. It's ...more
Mark's story is really becoming his own thing here and the universe is becoming it's own unique place after the trope-filled first volume. I think I have to agree with Robert Kirkman and that Allen is my favorite character in the whole series thus far. I'm pretty fond of Atom Eve as well and I was sad to see her take off. Even if it's only temporary.
I'm interes ...more

Volume 2 of Invincible: The Ultimate Collection covers Issues #14-#24, picking up in the aftermath of the introductory volume. Mark aka Invincible is coping with the devastating news that his father, Omni-Man, is actually a Viltrumite whose sole purpose was to enslave and subdue Earth. After Omni-Man's confession that he never loved his wife or anyone else and that everything was a lie, Mark struggles to come to grips with this.
Volume 2 spends a lot ...more
I really enjoyed the first Ultimate collection of Invincible, the twist with his father blew me away (in the manner that Kirkman always does). This volume, however was something I REALLY REALLY enjoyed. There were tons of these little side plots started, it seemed almost like one in every issue, that slowly g ...more
These issues are kind of a lull between the what comes before (especially the big reveal with Omni-Man) and what comes after (Angstrom Levy ...more
The thing that I like most about this series is that it is at its core, a classic superhero book. The difference is that it's new, and doesn't have 40+ years of mythology and history that alienates new fans.
Really loved Allen the Alien getting his own spot to shine here, as well as the main arc. One cool thing about these ultimate editions is the awesome sketches and extras at the end. Oh! And before I forget, Battle Beast is awesome!
However, what does occur is pretty great. Mark goes to college, Amber becomes less annoying, and Invincible starts to get some real super villains of his own. I'm no ...more
Maintenant, pas sûr que je poursuive l'aventure. Si je suis en manque de superhéros, je craquerai sans doute sur le volume 3.
