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.Read more ›
It is new with very few continuity problems and has a writing style similar to the old greats from the 60's 70 era.
The artwork is amazingly drawn by Ryan Ottley who is now one of my top favourite comic book artists with vibrant colours and detailed action scenes. In this volume characters are further developed and we see the strain of what it is like balancing being a hero and a normal person.
But the big thing here without spoiling it is a huge battle in space and a bigger threat that occurs on the planet at the same time as well as a few continuing plot threads.
The unfortunate thing about this book is that it is volume 8 so if you are new to the title my advice would be to start from volume one and work your way up, it is totally worth it as the story telling keeps you hooked as to what happens next.
Robert Kirkman is definatley a writter to watch out for and I will be looking at some of his other titles soon.

This particular volume picks up on a thread from one of the earliest Invincible storylines and weaves a pretty good tale out of it. I'd recommend picking up all of the Invincible trades... and take a look at Kirkman's Walking Dead, while you're at it! The guy is just a great writer.
