Welcome back faithful listeners!  When I say "Walking Dead" that may get a lot of people's attention.  Robert Kirkman has made a legion of fans with his zombie infested creation that led to an outbreak when it crossed over to television on AMC.  Well, tonight Ronnie and I discuss Robert Kirkman's superhero title "Invincible."  Join us as we talk about what brought us to this book, the journey Kirkman had to comics, and just who is "Invincible"?

From the wiki:

Invincible is an Image Comics Universe series named for its superhero, "Invincible" ("Mark Grayson"). Created by writer Robert Kirkman and artist Cory Walker, Invincible first appeared in Tech Jacket #1 (November 2002), before graduating to his own self-titled regular series in 2003, as the premier title in Image's then-new superhero line.

Invincible is the teenaged son of Omni-Man, an extraterrestrial superhero of the Viltrumite race. Invincible inherited his father’s superhuman strength and ability to fly and he has sworn to protect the Earth. He has had trouble adjusting to his newfound powers and coping with the reality of his origins.
