Robert Kirkman And Ryan Ottley’s ‘Invincible’ To End Next Year

Invincible

Robert Kirkman, Ryan Ottley and Cory Walker's Invincible has been going strong for over thirteen years with relatively little disruption and almost no major creative team changes, a rarity in modern comics. However, today in a blog post Kirkman announced that Invincible will in fact be ending, and the creative team is set to bring the series to a close next year with Invincible #144.

Fantastic Five: Best Face Turns in Comics

face turn five

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

This week we're counting down the top five face turns in comics, which doesn't mean times when someone turned their head to face another direction. It turns out it is some wrestling business where a bad guy turns good; that's what we're looking at. A surprising number of villains have become popular enough that fans want to see them as headliners, fighting crime in their own formerly villainous ways. This list takes a look at those whose changes have stuck the longest, have had the greatest influence, or who just generally feature in the best stories.

Give ‘Em Elle: Worlds Full of Superheroes

elle4_featured

Welcome to Give ‘Em Elle, a weekly column that hopes to bridge the gap between old school comics fandom and the progressive edge of comics culture.

This week I’ve been thinking about superheroes universes, and what it means to have a whole population of costumed characters running around. Sometimes I think that the population of superheroes (and villains) that you don't have a chance to get to know is almost as important as the heroes at the center of the story.

Fantastic Five: Best Spider-Man Team-Ups

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

Everyone loves Spider-Man, and since almost everything that happens in the Marvel Universe happens in New York City, it’s no surprise that Marvel’s most popular web-slinging New Yorker has run into basically every Marvel character at one point or another. But this week, we’re not just looking for some random time Spidey and Daredevil stopped a bank robbery and got hot dogs. We’re talking about the kind of crossovers that are so colossal or crazy that they only come around once in a great while.

The Great Super-Costume Poll: The 2000s Called…

supercostumes15

This week we’ve been looking at some quintessential costume designs decade-by-decade --- so inevitably we're finishing out the week with the 2000s. Today's polls may feature five relatively recent designs, but many of them pay tribute to characters and costumes that came before, from Superman to Martian Manhunter. So do these looks mark the pinnacle of costume design, or contemporary fashion faux pas?

About ten years I sent a fan e-mail to "Penvincipals," the Invincible fan mail page. To my surprise, it actually made it to print in Invincible 24. I don't remember what I wrote, exactly, but I do remember asking about Invincible toys and having Robert Kirkman jokingly threaten to sue me...
