5.0 out of 5 stars A superb, if not entirely original series 31 Mar 2014
By Mr. Mice Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
This is an extremely entertaining story, with excellent scripting and artwork, and a lot of forward planning – as objects thrown in one story eventually fall to Earth several issues later, for example. The story is simple to explain – a teenage boy whose father is an alien sent to Earth to protect it and ready it for eventual membership in Galactic Civilization, and who happened to marry an Earth-girl (the alien father, that is) hits puberty (the teenage son, that is) and starts to inherit his fathers powers. His father starts training him up, he meets and hangs out with a teenage superhero group, and discovers that one of his high-school teachers is a mad scientist who is turning classmates into cyborg suicide bombs. However, what is important is the flow of the story and the fun he has finding his place in the world of superheroes. Anyway, that was just the first couple of issues. As the story progresses, Invincible finds his responsibilities escalating, as the size of the threats escalate, until he is fighting in interstellar wars between rival empires, joining a government-sponsored team of super-heroes, getting a girlfriend, heading towards a more permanent relationship and family (a long way ahead in the series, I would point out), finding out his father is an evil alien supervillain bent on world conquest, finding out that his father is not a evil alien bent on world conquest (note that the previous bit is actually several years of story and plot/character development), meeting alternate-world versions of himself and finding out that some of his alternate-world versions are evil and/or cannibals, and generally providing us with a superb story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 19 Nov 2011
Format:Hardcover
Just a lot of fun, has some serious moments but a joy to read. The book is top quality and good value, most comics I read are by image not meaning to stick to one company but they know a good comic when they see one (the walking dead, spawn, morning glories).

If your looking for a fun care free series this is the one.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing 12 Feb 2011
By newmuse
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
i got into these comics after reading the walking dead, to see some thing that refreshing is nice, im sick of having to read batman and spiderman all the time,
this however is fresh and its a great way to start the comic book, everything i expected in a new book, he literally is invincible but when he fights he does take one hell of a beating, this is amazingly good, i read through all of the issues and have noe decided to collect the volumes, as i want the collected.
invincible is by far my favourite super hero now, and the universe in which he is in, is also amazing, especially since there are so many simalarities to other super heroes thanks

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book !!! 3 Sep 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Not knowing much of Invincible, this book seem a good starting point. I found it great fun, Sound story, lots of jokes, a great start to a series that I'll keep going with. Yes the art work is not the best around but it does have that silver age feel to it (which makes it work). Yes Kirkman fans many have a hard time without zombies, We all love zombies. Invincible is one of the best superhero series I have seen. well worth a read.

3.0 out of 5 stars S'alright - but I suspect it gets better? 4 Aug 2010
By Sam Woodward TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I picked this collection up because I'm utterly in love with Kirkman's other ongoing series, The Walking Dead. This is a very different piece of work, being a more conventional (at first) story about a teenager who develops superpowers - hardly surprising since his dad is the most powerful superhero on the planet, essentially Superman with a moustache. He soon finds himself flying round in lycra as Invincible, following in his fathers' footsteps & getting involved with other superteens. But being Kirkman, there are a couple of dark twists, with apparently more to come in later volumes.

This series is essentially a homage to classic comics, being a somewhat lightweight read in the style of silver age comics. It also features many in-jokes & references to other series, such as a character investigating the murder of some heroes being similar to Watchmen's Rorschach. It achieves this objective very well but ironically, I felt this was also a fundamental weakness. The art & characters were just as flat & 2-D as classic comics, so even when the plot took a surprisingly bloody change of direction, I found I hardly batted an eyelid since I couldn't engage with any of the characters & didn't particularly care what happened to them. It also suffered from a flaw which many silver/golden age comics had - supposedly super-intelligent characters making astonishing errors of judgement for the sake of the plot.

But despite all this, the series has... something. A certain charismatic spark which I can't quite pin down. I'm tempted to pick up
