He’s fought off alien hordes, rampaging villains and the wrath of his murderous father.
But nothing Mark Grayson, A.K.A. Invincible, has been through before can prepare him for — the triangle of doom!
Those of us who have survived the high school dating scene will surely recognize this dastardly conundrum as the love triangle, in this case featuring Mark, his girlfriend Amber and his fellow hero, Atom Eve.
After a clever and ruthless villain named Angstrom Levy makes a run at Mark by holding his mom and little brother hostage, a vicious and bloody battle ensues — one that leaves Mark stranded in an alternate dimension. Thankfully he’s rescued by the future versions of some of his hero friends, including Eve, who confesses her long-unspoken love for him.
So Mark is left with the choice: His high school sweetheart and his normal life as a college student or the superhero life with Eve.
If you’re a superhero comic fan and you can resist the temptation to read this utterly compelling series on a monthly basis, then this trade is a must-buy. With its amazing mix of action, dialogue and brilliant characterization — courtesy creator Robert Kirkman and artists Ryan Ottley and Bill Crabtree — this series never disappoints.
