Invincible Vol. 9

Posted on the 18 November 2012 by Jimblack78
I have been reading a ton of books over the last month but did not have time to blog about them so this is the first of many short catch up reviews.
Invincible Vol. 9
INVINCIBLE VOL. 9 (“Out of This World”):  Issues 42-47.   Invincible flies to the Moon as a “safety net” for a team of astronauts who are setting up a base to be on the lookout for invasion fleets (due to events in previous issues).  He is called back to Earth to fight a new menace until the Guardians of the Globe can arrive, then it is back to the Moon for the rest of the mission.  Kirkman also fits in a press conference, time at college with Invincible’s best friend, a summary of his love life, and time to throw the baseball with his little brother who…I can’t say more without giving away too much.  And that is just in the first issue.  This is a fun superhero series that combines old school plotting with modern characterization.  Kirkman is one of the masters of comic writing.  The more I read the more I am impressed.
