The Incredibles: City of IncrediblesThe Incredibles: City of Incredibles by Mark Waid

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

City of the Incredibles collects the first of the Incredibles story arc in their ongoing series. In light of Incredibles 2, all the comics have to be considered non-canon but that doesn't make them unenjoyable.

In Issue 0 we get to see a pre-movie Parr family awaiting the birth of Jack-Jack and heading to a Doctor who specializes in helping supers only to find bad guys in need of foiling, so Helen can get in and have the baby. In Issues 1-3, we meet some of the world's supervillains who are staging a comeback and hope to take advantage of Jack-Jack getting a virus that transmits superpowers.

Overall, this is a fun book. It feels very Silver Age with its villains and plot. It's not very deep at all, and it's more geared towards kids than the all ages feel of the movie. Still, for a fun read of non-canonical adventures with the Parrs, this is worth a read.
