The story from issues 97-102 of Image Comics’ Invincible are collected as Invincible Volume 18: Death of Everyone TP. This is an extremely entertaining comic, and although story might not be entirely original, this is made up for with excellent scripting and artwork. This is another excellent chapter in the Invincible series. There are plenty of ‘character’ scenes for Invincible, Eve and the rest of the supporting cast, as well as big action and fight scenes. This is a really excellent and enjoyable comic book.

THE SPOILER ZONE
Issue #97 sees the secret origin of Bulletproof (Invincible #2), as well as the dark secret regarding the fate of his parents, while Allen gives Nolan a secret mission, and Invincible (#1) finally sees the return of his powers.

Issue #98 finds that Dinosaurus has reverted to his old ways while Mark was incapacitated, and this time Los Angeles is ground zero… “Send Everyone!”

Issue #99: Apparently Los Angeles was a decoy, and Dinosaurus is out to kill everybody; and almost succeeds, as seismic disasters cause coastal flooding on an unprecedented scale. All the super-teams are called out to rescue civilians, as Invincible and Dinosaurus meet in final combat. Thragg warns the Viltrumites to not interfere.

Issue #100 sees the death of Invincible, live on TV, at the hands of Dinosaurus. However, he switched bodies, and Invincible is stashed away at his secret base. They have a long chat, and Dinosaurus realises that he has to be stopped. So he release Mark… Cecil arrives for the clean-up, and re-recruits Mark: “I’ve worked with villains before…” [Note – there’s blood but no body… This is a comic-book: as Batman once said, “show me the body.”]

Issue #101 sees Thragg facing rebellion from basically everyone, just as Nolan predicted… as Mark and Eve discuss parenthood, and then costume up to join in the clean-up operations. That doesn’t go too well, as everyone assumes Invincible was involved in causing the catastrophe with Dinosaurus. Eventually Cecil turns up to retrieve him and calm everyone down. Back at the Pentagon, Mark checks Dinosaurus’s body to make sure Cecil hasn’t pulled a switcheroo. [Note: comic-book; clones; double-bluff; etc.] Cecil then visits Nolan and Debbie, and exiles Nolan to the Guardians’ old Moonbase, and tasks him with keeping an eye on the remaining Viltrumites.

Issue #102 sees Thragg crashing the Moonbase just as Cecil steps out. Nolan manages to get Debbie (Mrs Omni-Man) into an airlock before the fight moves out onto the surface. Thragg then recounts the history of the Viltrumites, from Thragg’s rise to power following the death of the last ruler, Argall, at the hands of Thaedus. Apparently, Argall had several heirs stashed away, and guess just who the last remaining King of Viltrum is? Meanwhile, on Earth, Prince Mark proposes to Eve…

Slightly misleading title for this arc. Iv been a fan for some time now and like many was very much looking forward to this story-being it leading to that great 100th issue. But have to admit feeling rather let down by the lack of death considering the title. Cheated I would go as far to say too. Still a great book don't get me wrong and what Dinosaurus does or makes you think he does to Invincible had me gasping for breath turning THAT page ha ha

As a long time fan of Kirkman, I am slightly biased, but Invincible is still an exceptionally strong book. Let's face it, if you have read the first 17 you are probably hooked and this is just another great chapter to the story.
