Invincible

Robert Kirkman‘s comic book series Invincible is the story of a teenager whose father is the most powerful superhero in the world, and the struggles he endures while navigating regular life with the onset of his own newfound abilities. The series may have come to its definitive conclusion back in February of this year, but as its name suggests, the titular character and the world he inhabits will live on – just in a new medium.

In conjunction with Skybound and Image Comics, Amazon Studios is in the beginning stages of developing an animated series based on the long-running superhero comic. The series will begin with eight episodes, each running an hour long.

Invincible Comic Ending Cover

With Preacher on AMC, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg already have a comic book adaptation they’re involved with. Robert Kirkman has lots of comic books, two of which have been adapted into TV series: AMC’s mega-hit zombie drama The Walking Dead (not to mention its spinoff Fear the Walking Dead), which are also on AMC, and Outcast on Cinemax.

Now this trio is set to join forces for a new project at Universal Pictures. Rogen and Goldberg are set to write, direct, and produce a movie adaptation of Kirkman’s second longest-running comic book series behind The Walking Dead, titled Invincible, with Kirkman also producing through his Skybound Entertainment.

Invincible Comic Ending Cover

The end is near for Invincible.

In 2003, Robert Kirkman introduced the world to The Walking Dead — the comic book that would go on to spawn the television ratings giant of the same name. But the same year, Kirkman, along with Cory Walker and later Ryan Ottley, also released Invincible at Image Comics — a comic that sports the tagline “The Best Superhero Comic In The Universe.” And let me tell you, this is not far from the truth.

Now Kirkman has announced that the long-running comic will be ending. See when that will be below.

Invincible #105Invincible #105
Written by Robert Kirkman
Penciled by Ryan Ottley

Release Date: September 4, 2013
Cover Price: $2.99

Invincible #105 starts out in the middle of the action. Rex, manning the control center for the Guardians of the Globe orbiting space base, is shouting into his headset, commanding drones. While down on Earth, Invincible is casually chatting on the phone while stopping a bank robbery. All the while, on the Moon, Thragg is sentenced to exile.

Kirkman’s writing in this particular issue is great, flows well, and is easy to understand, even without having read previous issues. Dealing with the issues of lost power and adjusting to change, the focus of this issue is more on the characters trying to deal with their fears and feelings of being overwhelmed.

Illustrated by Ryan Ottley and Cliff Rathburn
Colored by John Rauch
Lettered by Rus Wooton
Cover by Ryan Ottley and John Rauch
Image Comics
Release Date: July 17, 2013
Cover Price: $2.99

Have you ever wondered how Invincible might taste? Weird question, sure, but Invincible #104 might just have an answer for you—whether you want one or not. What’s on the menu at Image Comics today? Robert Kirkman and crew serve up a delightful course of relational quandaries topped off with cannibalistic Invincibles from other dimensions!

Way back when, Angstrom Levy gathered an army of Invincibles from across the multi-verse to kill Mark Grayson. After their defeat, the remaining Invincible duplicates were all stranded in another dimension, forced to survive on their own. In present day, Levy continues to hold Eve hostage, ensuring that he’ll kill her just as soon as Invincible returns; however, even unable to use her powers, Eve makes a daring attempt to ensure that no harm come to her or her unborn child. Meanwhile, Invincible finds himself stuck in the dimension that the other Invincibles had been stranded in and what he finds are just two survivors: a deranged cannibal version of himself who has seemingly eaten many of the others and a remorseful Invincible who is bent on vengeance against his flesh-eating counterpart and Angrstrom Levy himself.

Inked by Cliff Rathburn
Colored by John Rauch
Lettered by Rus Wooton

Release Date: June 19, 2013
Cover Price: $2.99

As per usual, Invincible‘s team of Robert Kirkman, Ryan Ottley, and Cliff Rathburn deliver the goods with super-powered punch-to-the-gut dialogue and illustrated revelations combined with wide-eyed, jaw-dropping moments. Fresh off its 100th issue, Invincible returns this month with #103 and an all new story-arc. With many of the characters facing major unforeseen changes and returning villains entering the mix, this new era in Invincible is sure to stir up excitement, turmoil and bring forth a slew of untouched ethical dilemmas.

The newly engaged Mark and Eve must deal with the possible negative effects on their unborn child due to their superpowers. Also unbeknownst to them, Angstrom Levy—the maniacal portal-creating super-villain who was revealed to be back in their dimension in issue 100—is not too thrilled to find out that Invincible is still alive. Meanwhile, on the last Viltrumite warship on the moon, Lord Regent Nolan explains his punishment for the former leader of the Viltrumites, Thragg.

Youngblood #75Youngblood #75
Story by Jim McLaughlin

Release Date: January 2, 2013
Cover Price: $4.99

Say what you will about its creator, but Youngblood #75 is just balls out FUN! This is totally a 90’s comic set in modern times, and that’s exactly what it should be. Looking for fun? You found it!

Jim McLaughlin puts out another great issue of this classic Image series. I can’t tell you enough how much PURE fun this book is! It’s got all the hallmarks of the Youngblood series that we grew up with, only better. There’s TONS of action, snappy dialogue, great superhero stuff, and a little touch of modern day situations. Besides the main story, McLaughlin sneaks in a couple of really interesting subplots that are going to be pretty fantastic when they come to fruition.

Youngblood 71Youngblood #71
Written by John McLaughlin

Colors by Ross Hughes & Matt Yackey

Edits by Eric Stephenson
Covers by Rob Liefeld & Matt Yackey, Ryan Ottley & Jordie Bellaire, and Chris Giarrusso
Image Comics
Release Date: May 23, 2012
Cover Price: $2.99

Astonishingly, Youngblood #71 is something that falls into the “things I didn’t know I wanted or needed category,” like Rocky Balboa — who knew we needed an official ending to the Rocky story? Not me, but it sure was awesome. Also, the film Rambo. The last scene where John Rambo walks down the driveway to his family’s farm was, again, an ending that I didn’t know I needed. But again, I was surprised and satisfied that I got it. Truth by told, I stopped paying attention to Youngblood about a couple years after it started coming out, so why then was I excited for this issue? Some would say nostalgia (who, me?), but most of all, it’s because I have been impressed by the other Image titles that have came back for the 20th anniversary that have been fantastic! And out of all those titles, Youngblood was the only one that I cared about originally.
