Bundled Extra: Robert Kirkman To End Invincible Series
. This was the first big hit series for Walking Dead
writer Robert Kirkman (working with the very talented Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley), and I believe a still-somewhat solid performer for a series of its age and independent pedigree.
I was not on the PR cycle that got this news directly, a distribution of the story mentioned in the linked-to piece. I always paid attention to that book, though. It also has a movie-worthy plot for its first few issues (I won't spoil it for you), but unlike a lot of hit modern comics I will remember that one mostly for the way it did something a bunch
of people have tried to do in comics and failed outright: a stand-alone comic set in a believable and not-at-all second-rate seeming superhero "universe."
It also had this amazing thing going with bloody faces. Like 1960s comics with gorillas. It just worked for that title.
, the book still has some time to go, and I'm sure sticking the ending will be a priority. Ending the story soon feels right to this longtime reader, and I can't imagine too many of its loyal fans will complain.
