Invincible Presents Atom Eve and Rex Splode #3

February 13, 2010
Invincible Presents Atom Eve & Rex Splode #3 (Image Comics)
By Bentio Cereno, Nate Bellegarde & Bill Crabtree

The origin of Rex Splode concludes as he and Eve take aim at a government instillation with secrets they don’t want falling into the wrong hands. This is a high-action issue, and Bellegarde handles it pretty well. While he still has a tendency to have Eve’s back arch at some pretty improbable angles, he does big action and big explosions pretty well. I even like Rex’s short-lived original costume, which has a sort of old-fashioned cheesy flavor to it. The story, of course, is mainly Rex’s, but as he’s dead, the reason the story matters for for the way it puts Eve’s pre-Invincible life into context. Again, it succeeds on that level. Between this and the previous miniseries, we’ve really gotten a good feel for the girl Eve was in the beginning and how she’s evolved into the woman she is today. I like these peeks into the different corners of Robert Kirkman‘s universe, and I hope we’ll see more of them.
