    By today's standards, Invincible is something of an aberration. Its cast members just go about their business, whether it's punching aliens in the head, or going on that tricky first post-separation date, and plots don't fall neatly into six-issue chunks of sweeping hyperbolic nonsense. Instead, everything chugs along nicely, and while that approach might seem sedate and boring, the creators never allow it to become so, ensuring that while they never threaten to engulf the actual storytelling, the high concepts and spectacle inherent to superhero fiction are nonetheless all present and correct. It's rare to see this consistent level of skill and confidence in the genre today, and Invincible shows that there's a place for simple stories done well. Read Full Review
