Undemanding kick/'splode Invincible spin-off featuring tentacled reject clones of a superpowered OAP, a giant platypus monster, and a midget death cult. Exactly the sort of easy read one needs for a Monday commute when rather tired, and still massively distracted by news of the Prime Minister fucking a dead pig.
This one is kind of crazy all over the place plotwise. Brit's dead, no he's not, but that's not him either, no wait, it is... Ack. What just happened? Plus he's got a sister (where did she come from? the usual place, I suspect)...who's way better looking than he is. I'm enjoying the extra time we get to spend with Donald, though - he's way more entertaining than I'd have thought. Maybe volume 3 will clear up some of the confusion/mystery.
More Brit comics starring, for most of it, not Brit. Yeah, this was a bit of a misfire. I read it and kept wondering why it sounded different than Robert Kirkman's other books. I was too oblivious to see he didn't write this one. Oh well, there are still lots of explosions and fights.
