4.0 out of 5 stars The saga continues, 15 Jan 2009

This review is from: Invincible Vol. 9: Out Of This World (Paperback)
Earth marches steadily on towards invasion and the young hero Invincible has no more idea how to stop it than before. This ninth installment has the feeling of a pre-finale setup story, with the 'good guys' trying to muster up an army and the 'bad guys' trying to stop them whilst trying to mould their chosen agent on Earth (poor Invincible again) into the perfect leader of an invasion force.

If you've read the previous eight compilations then this is a must read, as it's all about the main story arc, but there's no point reading this out of sequence. It's good, but not the best, 'Invincible' and it does exactly what the writers intended, it leaves you gagging until volume 10 and the invasion.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb, if not entirely original new series, 20 Jan 2014

(TOP 100 REVIEWER)   
The story from issues 42-47 of Image Comics' Invincible are collected as Invincible Volume 9: Out Of This World: Out of This World v. 9. This is an extremely entertaining comic, and although story might not be entirely original, this is made up for with excellent scripting and artwork.

THE SPOILER ZONE
Issue #42 sees young Oliver start to develop his powers, a lot of personal stuff for Mark, as well as fight with Octoboss and a mission to set up a Moonbase.

Issue #43 sees Allen the Alien pay a visit, but the Immortal makes first cntact, and he's not happy about the death of his wife, and starts fighting; fortunately Invincible arrives in time to stop him getting hurt. He decides it is time to leave the Guardians. Allen has a catch-up chat with Invincible, but fails to talk him into visiting the Council of Worlds. He does take copies of Omni-Man's books as he recognises their importance. Eve then turns up on mark's doorstep..

Issue #44 sees a Viltrumite agent come to check up on Invincible, and tries to explain the Viltrumites' side of things. They are interrupted by a giant sea-monster attacking a liner, which they team-up to rescue, before starting their own fight.

Issue #45 sees the Viltrumite beat up Invincible, before leaving, with the warning that when a Viltrumite agent is available, they will be back to take over once more. On her way home, the Viltrumite bumps into Allen the Alien, and arrests him for execution; but knowing of Omni-Man's arrest, he deliberately loses the battle... Meanwhile, Mark's mother goes on a date; while in his prison cell, Nolan (Omni-Man) admits to his cell-mate that he misses his wife...

Issue #46 sees the Immortal (and doesn't he look like Vandal savage to you?) discover that Repli-Kate kept a spare body hidden away for safe-keeping... Meanwhile, Invincible and Rex-Plode tye to foil a museum robbery by two time travelling characters from the future, only to have Multi-Paul show up and attack Rex, blaming him for his sister's death...

Issue #47 sees Nolan fully recovered from his injuries and getting ready for his upcoming execution, just as Allen the Alien is delivered to the prison. Rudy (the Robot and Amanda (Monster Girl) get a bit of bonding time together, as Tether Tyrant and Magmaniac decide going straight isn't working out for them and soon end up in a fight with Invincible and his new sidekick, Kid Invincible!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing series, 30 Dec 2010

This review is from: Invincible Vol. 9: Out Of This World (Paperback)
This series of comics keeps getting better and better!
Bought the first one after reading issue 1 on my iPhone and haven't been able to stop buying them since.
It's a nice refresh from the billion years of history that Marvel and DC have for you to completely understand what's happening.
And visually it looks fantastic!
Only downside is there isn't many more to go after this one!
