I’m back from the comic shop this week and I got 4 new comic plus a hard cover collection:

  • Supernatural Origins – 5
  • Savage Dragon – 132
  • Astro City The Dark Age – 4
  • Usagi Yojimbo – 106
  • Marvel Westerns Hardcover Collection
  • And I’ve only read one thing this week. I haven’t been in the mood for much comic reading. That and I just got a new XBox 360.

  • “Invincible” Ultimate Edition Volume 3 Hardcover
  • I haven’t been buying “Invincible” month to month because I didn’t like it so much in the beginning. I have all three oversized hardcovers now and volume three is the latest one that collects issues 25-35 of the series. I love the oversized hardcover as a format. And I love “Invincible” now too.

    “Invincible” has developed into the best super hero book out there. There you go I said it. There is no super hero book that I like better than this one. The plots and scripts are good (Robert Kirkman). The art is top shelf (Ryan Ottley and Cliff Rathburn) and there is no book out there that has better coloring (Bill Crabtree) and lettering (Rus Wootan). Yes, even the lettering on this book impresses me. That’s a tall task.

    “Invincible” is the story of a teenager who discovers he has super powers. He also discovers that his father is a super hero. After that we get small stories, big stories, cosmic stories, serious stories, funny stories, and plot twists galore. The world of “Invincible” is also populated with a lot of other super heros. It’s a pretty big and fleshed out world that is filled with imagination. From the goofy to the dangerous all the characters are interesting. You can tell everyone involved with this book isn’t just going through the motions.

    I won’t go into the plot of this or any of the other “Invincible” volumes because the surprises and cliff hangers are half of the fun. Like I said, I wasn’t too fond of this book at first but after issue six or so it took off and has only been getting better ever since. So for the ultimate super hero trip today pick up “Invincible”. Recommended.
