The Near Mint Comic Show

Near Mint Ep. 061 - Comic Book Club FEB’14

March 9, 2014

Coming to you a little late but made with love, it's the February 2014 edition of The All-New, All-Different Near Mint Comic Book Club! Ben, Dan, and Lucas are back in da club and this month's selection is Invincible (Image) Ultimate Collection Vol. 1. by Robert Kirkman (w), Cory Walker & Ryan Ottley (a) and Bill Crabtree (c). In 2003, a young whippersnapper by the name of Robert Kirkman started writing two independent titles at Image Comics. One, a black & white zombie epic that would give life to one of the most commercially successful shows in the history of cable television. The other, a modern take on capes & tights that, in light of the recent reboots, is now one of the longest-running superhero titles in comics and arguably the best. Listen as we return to the beginning of what has become a great operatic tale. See the creative spark as some of comics' best creators embark on their landmark work. Discover (or re-discover) a story that builds and matures right along with its young protagonist. If you love superhero comics, this is a book you need to be reading.
