Not sure if I mentioned yet, but I am currently devouring the entire run of Kirkman's INVINCIBLE and loving it. Something very special about this book. Fun to read, great character designs, solid dialogue, and despite the occasional moments of intense gore, it's a fairly family friendly read. With the exception of Space Dinosaur**, Kirkman is batting a thousand with me.
**I've got as much business reading Space Dinosaur as I do waking up early on Saturday to watch cartoons. I'm definitely not the demographic on that one.
i have been reading INVINCIBLE from the beginning, and can say i prefer it to WALKING DEAD by a great amount. (they started the same time) the thing that makes it so good is that real, actual change happens, as opposed to any big two stuff. and he has quite possibly built the richest, most 'traditional' silver age style cast outside of them as well! my only gripe is that the new colorist is more modern/'realistic' and i preferred the day glo, flat colors that made things more distinct. if you are catching up, i dont thiink the color change happened until around #80 or so
Djinn also got me on Invincible, and I'm hooked. I started yesterday and blazed through about 21 issues in no time. So much fun!
I got up to volume 6 on Invincible and I really like it. It's quite similar in some ways to parts of Savage Dragon, which was always my favorite comic in the 90's. I'm hoping to order a few more volumes soon, because like the Walking Dead, it's easy to tear through Kirkman's stories once you start. He's great at writing stories that leave you wanting more.
