What did the
art & cover RYAN OTTLEY & FCO PLASCENCIA
Size: 32 pages
If I ever decide to write comics, and rise to the level where I can start requesting artists to work with, Ryan Ottley would be in my top three. Kirkman jokes in the letter pages about having bought up all of the original pages. I think that would be a solid investment.
Oh, and that Kirkman guy is pretty nifty, too.
Also in the letter column (seriously, read these letter columns, they’re great), a drunken e-mail points out how Kirkman puts very little gore in his zombie book (The Walking Dead, for those who have never visited a comic book store or webpage before), but Invincible, which started out so bright and almost kid-friendly is now one of the goriest superhero comics on the stands. But it’s drawn so well, and it’s so much more fun looking than, say the sort of gore in an Avatar book. The last page of this book: brutal, but gorgeous.
And since Kirkman brought color and aliens into The Walking Dead at issue 75 of that series, I’m really hoping that the next issue of Invincible will feature some black and white zombies.
