Invincible Returns #1 (Image Comics)
By Robert Kirkman, Ryan Ottley, Cory Walker & David Finch

With Invincible getting ready to head into space to fight the Viltrumite War, Kirkman gives us this one-shot to get all the pieces in place. The book does an excellent job of recapping the series to date, advancing all the main characters, and giving us a big revelation about Atom Eve. Very often, a book that’s intended as a good “jumping-on point” is just recap or just setting the stage without giving you anything for the devoted reader that’s been with the title for years. This is one of the exceptions, this is a book that genuinely will work for the reader, no matter if it’s the first issue of Invincible you’ve ever read or the seventy-first. Also, as you may have gauged from the cover, this issue features the return of Invincible’s original costume. I couldn’t be happier about that. The blue-and-blacks weren’t bad, but I always felt like it was missing something. That splash of yellow really makes the costume stand out, makes it look like a classic uniform. If you’ve never read Invincible before and you’ve always wondered what the fuss was about, this is the issue to get.
