Meet Greg Pincus -- the planet's brand-spanking-newest Superhero. One small problem: Greg is neither super, nor particularly heroic.  But, he sure enjoys the perks that come with the job.  Can Greg survive in a celebrity-obsessed world that wrongly believes he's indestructible? Jeff Kline (Transformers: Prime, G.I. Joe: Renegades) explores this comedic take on a reluctant hero, and contemplates what is required to be considered "special" in a world where fame can come and go faster than a speeding bullet.

    I just can't contain my glee, Indestructible #1 is without a doubt an impressive first issue that successfully lands in all the best ways possible. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Philip Suson Dec 11, 2013

    The art in the book is great too. Everything feels lived in. There is an old dreary look to it that gives it that lived in look just mentioned, as well as a retro feel that is very much welcomed. The shadowing they use to add depth is very soft, but that works as it gives nice subtle detail. It gives everyone a soft look. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Jesse Scheckner Dec 11, 2013

    Granted, those are some lofty expectations one book deep, but it has the potential. One of three debuting series from Darby Pop Publishing, a new publishing division from IDW, this sets the bar quite high for what should be expected of their other offerings: the futuristic cyber thriller City and the sci-fi samurai romp, 7th Sword. With great pacing, an excellent plot, interesting characters, snappy dialog and artwork that conveys all of those assets soundly, Indestructible is an absolute winner. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Dec 11, 2013

    Indestructible is a witty, unique, and often hilarious take on fame and what a hero really is. This is a story where a character in odd circumstances enters into an even odder world. There's a lot here to like, but there is room to polish things up and expand on a few of the story's points. This one warrants a return for sure. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Dec 11, 2013

    A lot of the humor reminded me of Judd Apatow movies like Knocked Up and The 40 Year Old Virgin, although this comic certainly is not anywhere near as vulgar. However, Apatow's scripts had a warmness underneath them that made all the bawdy jokes work, whereas more than a few jokes miss their mark here. With some time to grow, I could see this comic finding its footing and really clicking with its brand of humor, but unfortunately the first time out isn't enough to hook me. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Wesley Messer Dec 11, 2013

    Indestructible #1 is the kind of comic that's not bad, not good, it's just okay. It's middle of the road comic book storytelling at its finest. It's trying to be more than what it is and ultimately it's just an okay comic. Indestructible isn't going to set the world on fire and that's about what I can muster for this one. It's not going to be something I'm going to look back on and say this was amazing or bad, just it was there. Who knows maybe in future issues this could be a strong story, I'd be happy to revisit it down the road when it is fully completed. Judging by this issue alone and this issue proper, it doesn't give me much to want to come back to. That's Indestructible for you, it tries hard to be something more but ultimately it is just a middle of the road comic in a crowded landscape. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - James McQueen Dec 11, 2013

    The art is colourful and very fitting for the story but nothing about this first issue grabbed me. The characters, dialogue and the plot feel a bit flat and unoriginal. Indestructible #1 is mildly entertaining but lacks any sort of impact. Read Full Review
