A superb, if not entirely original new series,
This review is from: Invincible: My Favorite Martian v. 8 (Invincible) (Paperback)
The story from issues 36-41 of Image Comics' Invincible are collected as Invincible: My Favorite Martian v. 8 (Invincible). 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
This set of issues starts with #36 and the return of Doc Seismic and the Legions of Underearth, just in time for our new Martian superhero to make his introduction to the Guardians of the Globe, who promptly recruit him; just in time, as we will see further down the line. Back in college, William has an idea for finding the missing Rick, which works so well that he's soon on the mad scientist's operating table, with Invincible up to his neck in Reanimen, including the sought after Rick...
Issue #37 sees Rick the Reaniman save the day in the fight with the mad scientist, while Rudy (the Robot) and Monster Girl go on a date.
Issue #38 sees Allen the Alien finally recover from his injuries, bigger and stronger than ever before, and the Great Thaedus reveals his big Viltrumite secret... while Mark and Amber go on a date, and a Martian invasion is detected... and Invincible and Eve sort of kiss, while the Immortal and Repli-Kate elope.
Issue #39 sees Cecil briefing the Guardians about the Martian invasion, and Shapesmith (our Martian stowaway) revealing all he knows about the Sequids and the Martians and the Astronaut who was left behind... and a rescue team is quickly assembled and shuttled off to intercept the Martian warship. Meanwhile, the Lizard League captures a nuclear missile base, and the remaining Guardians are sent to deal with them.
Issue #40 - while the Guardians battle on the Martian ship, the Lizards kill the Guardian team sent to tackle them, with only Rex Splode surviving...
Issue #41 sees the defeat of the Sequids, the rescue of the missing Astronaut, Mark and Amber breaking up and Invincible's discovery that Eve has feelings for him...
