Words like absolute and ultimate are getting thrown around an awful lot in the comic book industry lately — often on things that aren’t always worthy.
So Image Comics’ release of the Ultimate Collection of their cult-hit superhero series Invincible could be met with suspicion.
But after reading this sizable compendium of the first 13 issues of the adventures of teen hero Mark Grayson, the words consummate, ideal and supreme can also be fine descriptions.
On top of being a top-class reprinting of a hot series — a near-perfect blend of teen-angst comedy and pithy superhero action — this volume offers more extras than the best DVD box set, with concept sketches, scripts, original pitch material and commentary by writer Robert Kirkman.
This book is practically an essential.
