TL;DR Review: INVINCIBLE

Premiering way back in 2003, Invinciblefrom Image Comics, follows Mark Grayson, the teen son of superhero Omni-Man. With the hereditary powers of super strength and flight, he becomes the titular superhero known as Invincible.

Written by Robert Kirkman, Invincible is the new and fresh take on the superhero genre. It explores the true meaning and consequences of being a hero by blurring the lines between good and evil. What does it mean to truly save someone, and is it worth saving a loud minority over the silent majority? With all these questions, however, Kirkman still manages to keep it upbeat and fun, making it one ride you’ll never want to stop.

Story

  • Addresses relatable issues with ethics regarding relationships, family, and politics.
  • It has wonderful pacing, always knowing when to let the reader rest or experience those jaw dropping moments.
  • So many plot twists. So many!
  • The series is contained in one comic book and doesn’t bleed into other series, making it perfect for binge reading.
  • Always changing things up and exploring new grounds.

Art

  • Clean, but meticulously detailed.
  • Full of vibrant colors, which also change depending on the mood of the scene.
  • Clean transitions and makes sure the reader can see every detail of a scene.

Overall

This is a phenomenal comic book to read, and with Image Comics touting it as, “The best superhero comic book in the universe,” they’re not that far from the truth. Not one issue has left me feeling underwhelmed or burnt out, always leaving me wanting more and never afraid to leave me question the truths of right and wrong.

For the longest time I’ve been looking for another superhero I could relate to, and Invincible came along to answer my prayers. You owe it to yourself to read this wonderful series, particularly if you’re a superhero comic book fan and want more out of the genre.
