Format: Paperback
The first four issues of Image Comics' Invincible are collected as Invincible Volume 1: Family Matters New Printing: Family Matters v. 1. This is an extremely entertaining story, with excellent scripting and artwork, and a lot of forward planning - as objects thrown in the first volume eventually fall to Earth in the second, 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.

By Sam Quixote TOP 500 REVIEWER on 31 May 2013
Format: Paperback
I've seen Invincible on the shelves for a few years now but never felt the need to pick it up, even to skim the pages - it looks like a generic superhero book even if the Walking Dead guy wrote it and it's published by Image. It just looks too much like every superhero book out there - good looking kid in a superhero outfit flying with super strength. Really - is that it? Well I decided to find out for myself today and so I picked it up hoping to be pleasantly surprised - maybe it's a smart satire on superhero stories, maybe it's a Superman analogue that takes a different tack to the concept of superheroism, maybe anything! I was prepared to read something subversive and cool, especially after reading Kurt Busiek's intro where he gushes about the originality of the book.

And then I read the book.

Nope!

Mark Grayson/Invincible is our superhero main character, son of an ordinary woman and a man who happens to be this world's "Superman". Mark is your average teen going to an average high school in a nondescript American town, who one day finds out he's developed superpowers. He can fly, he has super strength, so he follows in his dad's footsteps and becomes a superhero too.

Mark gets his superhero outfit thanks to his dad's superhero tailor connection, fights baddies, teams up with another group of young superheroes, goes on an adventure with his dad, fights more baddies, and moons over the pretty redhead who's seeing someone else and of course wears a super-revealing outfit.

If all of this seems like something you've read a hundred times before, it's because you have. Invincible isn't a generic superhero comic, it's THE generic superhero comic.

I decided to start this book because i was a big fan of the walking dead series and when i read i just didint quite get into it at all but i continued reading and by vol 3 i was hooked and completely in love with the series. Now invincible is hands down my favourite comic book on the market.
