techjacket.jpgImage Comics has announced Tech Jacket, the first series by Invincible and Walking Dead writer Robert Kirkman, will be collected in a trade paperback. Tech Jacket tells the story of Zack Thompson, an ordinary teenager until his family was thrust into the center of an alien civil war. As usual when these things happen, Zack was fused against his will with a battle vest capable of granting him power far beyond those of mere mortals.

“Tech Jacket has always been a big favorite of mine,” Kirkman says. “Zack’s not like a typical comic book teenager. He’s far from a big dork or a wealthy heir. His family is working class – just like most people out there. In fact, he’s probably the creation of mine I relate to the most.”

If you haven’t read Invincible, then you are missing out, and if Kirkman’s great story telling in Walking Dead is any indication, then Tech Jacket should be a must have.

Tech Jacket, packed with extras, exclusive sketches and introduction by the author hits stores August 15, for $14.99.
