As the VILTRUMITE WAR rages on within the pages of INVINCIBLE, the ranks of the Guardians of the Globe are suddenly depleted. The world is in danger, and the team is in search of new blood. It's the biggest recruitment drive since Omni-Man slaughtered the original members. But will the new Guardians of the Globe be ready in time to stop The Order? This series is a can't-miss action extravaganza!

    Despite a rather awkward change in title (Guardians of the Globe really rolls off the tongue much better), this first issue definitely satisfied. If youre a fan of Invincible, this is definitely a comic book worth checking out. Read Full Review

    The only weak point in a generally slid script is some occasional awkward dialogue, particularly involving a scene between Cecil and The Immortal and Dupli-Kate. Ransom Getty captures the sleek look and feel of Ryan Ottley's art with a bit more emphasis on exaggerated musculature and fierce poses. The late addition of Cliff Rathburn on inks and the multiple colorists do hold the art back a bit, unfortunately. Guarding the Globe should please most Invincible fans looking for a lighter, less intense storyline. Read Full Review

    Hopefully the pace will pick up a bit in future issues of "Guarding the Globe," because the biggest problem with the first issue is how slowly it moves. We've barely met the cast (a lot of them are still yet to appear), and it doesn't feel like the story is going anywhere at all. Boredom is a fast way to lose readers in a comic, and I could already feel it trickling in after this initial installment. Here's to a bit more pep next time around. Read Full Review

    It was pretty boring and uninspiring. Not without good moments, of course, but it's definitely not the Invincible level of quality. Add to this the first pages of the comic repeating the first pages of Invincible #71 and wonder why it was 3.50 bucks... The story almost didn't move anywhere here. Cecil decides to actually guard the globe and recruit more different heroes all around the world and they recruit some Yeti guy. That's it, that's the whole comic. Oh yeah, also Brit got new costume and Immortal is still in retirement.
