I wasn't really into this. I thought the writing was really cheesy. ( )

It was more of a 3.5 out of 5. I got it for kindle for free from amazon and read it in about 20 minutes. I only picked it up (so to speak) because it was by Robert Kirkman, it was alright. It's about a kid in high school named Mark and his father is a superhero and he's just getting his powers. He takes down a few bad guys, checks out a suit. Everything you would expect from a superhero comic. ( )

Mark Grayson is a regular high school student, except his father is the most powerful superhero on earth and Mark is starting to develop powers of his own. This was a lot of fun; the characters are believable and the humor is great. The storyline is mainly Origin story, but it's evident that the potential is there for a fantastic series. The art is fitting for the story of a teenager superhero as well. ( )

This was a reread for me, but it had been awhile since I'd read this and the mood struck me. I enjoyed this just as much this time as I had the first time around. I've tried Kirkman's other works, The Walking Dead, Outcast, and Haunt and they all fell flat for me, and to be honest, I'd forgotten that Kirkman had written this too, so I guess it's just his horror titles that I don't like. I thoroughly enjoy the family dynamic in Invincible, with Markus Grayson and his mom, Deborah, fully embracing knowing his dad, Nolan, is the superhero Omni-Man. When Markus' powers manifest, he decides to join his dad in crime fighting as Invincible. I think I like Deborah most of all, as her matter of fact acceptance of the danger her husband and son face on a daily basis hides the concern she actual feels for her family.

This is a quick introduction to the core and supporting cast, and the actual superhero aspect of the story is really just the backdrop to Markus' family and him discovering his powers and how he is learning to balance them with high school. I really liked the minimal line art and color palette used; it's marks a stark contrast from other superhero books and their hyper detail and layered color effects, which I think is the point. This book is a superhero book, but it's different from the rest. I'll definitely be continuing with this series. ( )

It's superhero usual stuff, but I quite liked it. ( )
