Invincible #29

I get the feeling 'ole RK and pal Ryan Ottley had one of those "wait until they get a load of this one" meetings before Invincible #29 hit the stands last week.

This issue is encompassed almost entirely by brutally graphic fisticuffs between Mark and his Dad and a trio of Viltrumites bent on burying them - and hell, i loved it (especially Ottley's kick-ass panels and layouts - there's a 2-pager that is one of the coolest fight spreads i've seen).

I REALLY loved it for about a page when i thought Mark's Dad might have been killed (instead of just back broken)... now that would have been something.

Ah well, no big deal... great issue none-the-less (after a couple ho-hum Invincible issues lately IMO). Continuing to prove that Invincible is one of the coolest superhero mags out there, and why "creator owned" is so boss. B+.

It was all over when... (and yeah this viltrumite dude is holding his spilling guts in his pants w/ one hand while unceremoniously breaking Mark's Dad's back - how's that for hardass?)

Here's that boss Ottley superhero combat layout i mentioned above... couldn't resist:

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
