If you missed the done in one crossover epic from Image Comics, Invincible #60 makes a return to stores next week, according to the company. “Telling an entire inter-company crossover in a single issue is something I’ve had my eye on for awhile,” Kirkman said. “It wasn’t easy to do, but the results are totally kick ass! I got the chance to play with Image’s full line of superheroes, including a few you haven’t seen in awhile, like PITT! It was a lot of fun for me to put INVINCIBLE and company through the ringer in a fight that completely
Now this is more like it I donâ€™t know what happened in the second part of that two-part crossover issue that began in Invincible #57, and frankly, I donâ€™t care.Â Â What I do care about is the intricate universe Robert Kirkman has created in Invincible and the myriad of characters in it.Â The latest issue returns readers to the good olâ€™ days of a young superhero and all the people in it.
There are comics scheduled to arrive on December 24, and Image has a couple you’ll want to check out.Â Take the jump for a sneak peek of Invincible #57, the Parade (with Fireworks) trade paperback, Savage #3, and The Walking Dead Omnibus Volume 2.
This week, on a very special Invincible… What a world of difference a couple of years make.Â Back in the day, youâ€™d open up a copy of Invincible and see bashing and smashing, intrigue, and teenager trying to live a normal life with super powers.Â But our Mark Greyson has grown up, and as he comes into his own, heâ€™s got to face a lot of adult situations.Â Situations like premarital sex, a sibling that needs an intervention, and domestic violence.Â Heady topics, indeed.
I know there areÂ Major Spoilerites who have been decrying Robert Kirkman’s shipping schedule (you know the one that is never on time).Â Well, Kirkman promises he’s going to change in 2009, by getting his titles out on time.
In addition to the Image United, a six-issue mini-series written by Robert Kirkman, and featuring characters and art from the Image Comics founders (with George Perez doing the layouts), Image had a few other things to announce at the show.
Considering he’s had his hand in the creation of some of the company’s recent big titles, this is great news. Press Release 22 July 2008 – As reported by the New York TimesÂ earlier today, THE WALKING DEAD and INVINCIBLE’s Robert Kirkman has become a corporate partner of Image Comics.
I guess Robert Kirkman has too many hours in the day, because Image comics has announced the Kirkman, Jason Howard Astounding Wolf-Man will turn into a monthly title this July. “Frankly, I just couldn’t stay patient,” ASTOUNDING WOLF-MAN co-creator and writer Robert Kirkman said. “Over the past year THE ASTOUNDING WOLF-MAN has become one of my favorite books to write and, even more so, seeing the pages pour in from Jason has made me crave MORE! With the impending shocker we’ve got coming in issue 7, we decided to switch the book from once every sixty days to every thirty!
Image Comics has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of titles arriving next week. It’s a small collection this week featuring Crawl Space #1 (yay zombies!), PVP #35, and The Walking Dead #43 (yay, more zombies!).
Image 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
