This has to have the best trade of Invincible yet. So much happened. I like how Oliver is intrinsically different from Mark. I'm really interested to see where this will go especially since that last page cameo...

-short review done. Real review to come.

If you like superhero comics: read Invincible.
If you're sick of superhero comics: READ INVINCIBLE.

I promise, not a single arc will conclude without you feeling like you got punched in the face.

And you'll like it.

'nuff said.

Super hero universes are stupid.

Crossovers are stupid.

Sorry, nerds, but it's true.

Remember the Flintstones Meets the Jetsons? Yeah, it's always that lame. (I will make exception for "Marvels", "Kingdom Come", and "The Dark Knight Returns," and that's it.)

Here's why:

I read a lot of comics that were written by their creators, or at least by the creator of the series. The best example I can think of is Runaways. Brian K. Vaughan is great at writing his characters and terrible at writing most Marve

Invincible is everything that works in a superhero comic, and it somehow manages to be fresh and innovative at the same time. Robert Kirkman (creator of The Walking Dead) takes the formula that Stan Lee came up with decades ago for Spider-Man and thrusts it into today, slaps on a fresh coat of science fiction, massive plot twists, and even more massive violence. The violence is definitely something you need to be aware of before you start reading this. Please please please do not pick this book ...more

You know a series is good when you think there are more pages in the trade, turn to find out you've just read the last page and actually say "OH NO!!!!" I can't believe that after 50 issues, Invincible is still going strong - action, humor, and heart - everything I like in my superhero dramas.

Robert Kirkman's Invincible has long been a favorite series of mine, although I've only read it in trade paperback collections, and Vol. 10: Who's The Boss? more than confirms my continued faith in Kirkman's storytelling and world-building. This collection finds Invincible and Atom Eve's relationship moving forward even as his relationship with Cecil Stedman and the Global Defense Agency deteriorates. Invincible has always seemed to develop organically, and reading each trade paperback collectio ...more

Man I think this is my favorite Invincible trade so far. The way it weaves so many things together for such an incredibly epic story is just astounding.

The first arc was one that's been building for awhile. It was my favorite as you saw what Mark really stands for. It gave characters new depth and dimension and motivations.

I found myself feeling very nearly the same emotions as Mark through both arcs. I don't know if that's because Kirkman wrote the situations so well or if it's just a situati

Invincible struggles with his roles as both hero and mentor when he finds that not everyone shares his idealistic mindset. First, when the heroes of Earth are all captured, Cecil and the Global Defense Agency move in with their secret, not so heroic, options. Later, Mark realizes that Oliver's frame of reference is not his own and his ethics are not the same as his half-brother's.

That's really what it is getting to the roots of though, while there's the basic discussion of what it means to be a

A good comic series. Nice plot and art. The stories are a little more graphic and adult than the ones I started off reading in the 1960s but still not as bad as many of the ones that today's comics have turned into. The stories remind me of reading the good solid fun comic books of the older Marvel and DC era of the 1960's but undated to today's world. Recommended

I'm still annoyed by how under used Eve is (although I'm glad she's out of Africa, Kirkman should NOT be writing about Africa) but I really enjoyed this one! Specifically, Oliver's storyline is really well done. He's a highly intellectual alien! Of course he won't react like a human! I'm really looking forward to more.

Invincible loses his latest authority figure, and struggles with his role training and parenting his younger, inhuman brother. I'm always hesitant about major plot shifts, but Robert Kirkman has a good track record so far. Invincible's younger brother Oliver is starting to get a bit annoying. The fight scenes in this book get a bit brutal for a mainstream superhero title. Kirkman and Ryan Ottley talk about how they show exit wounds, while Marvel won't. Fortunately Ottley's art isn't too realisti ...more

Mark finds out his boss Cecil isn't the benevolent leader he thought he was when he discovers some less than savory characters on the government payroll (ah, so young and naive). Mark goes into superheroing without Cecil's help. Also, Oliver shows a dark side with the Mauler Twins that even makes the Immortal go WTF? And we see that someone is spying on Invincible, but who??

A great volume after an okay last volume, this one ups the ante for Mark when he leaves the comfort of Cecil's aid to maint

This is the first time I got frustrated with Invincible. He was very "I'm angry and gonna punch everyone without hearing them out, but get mad when anyone else does the same thing". I really hope this gets adjusted in the following issues.

This is a fun collection with the introduction of the reanimen in combat, Cecil and Mark's disagreement and Oliver in battle. Kirkmn doesn't shy away from the shock value but, still does excellent character moments. As classic as Batman and Superman and other superheroes are, Mark Grayson, with Kirkman writing him, seems to have the potential to be another Superheros icon.

Reprints Invincible #48-53. Invincible fights his boss Cecil and has to deal with his brother's developing powers. The two main story arcs in this book lead to interesting developments for the characters, but sometimes it feels like there is too much going on in the comic book with side stories.

invincible is the best current superhero series. all the cliche's are there, and still it feels fresh and entertaining.

The Cecil arc that heads off this volume and the Oliver arc that ends it are both enthralling and well told [8 out of 10]. There's some slightly fluffier filler in the middle, but even that is fun [7 out of 10].

This is great so far...a lot of shaking things up! What I really like is how Kirkman really explores the characters and allows them to grow.
