First off i will say that i am a big walking fan, but here i am baffled as why is TWD is that much more popular than invincible, and outsells it by like 5:1 in diamond sales, invincible barely cracks the top 150 while twd is at top 15.
I mean werent there like a billion zombie books before at that time, the only thing was special about the book was its tagline , as it never ends and the main characters can die. Yes they are fun and nice , but god are they slow, and the amount of repetitive plot threads is way too much, hell even some the characters are repetitive like how Abraham is a re skinned tyrone. Anyway invincible is everything i want in a comic, full of interesting plot threads that actually get resolved, mostly contained in its own comic , no read this issue of another series, the characters really develop and change, there is no status que. basically there is never a dull moment in it. Why didnt the comic take off, just like the walking dead, if TWD was a fresh take on the zombie genre, invincible was just as much so, it even came before it.
And yes yes i am aware the show increased its popularity despite it being much worse than the comic. Anyhow i feel i am rambling here, but the fact there are very few who read it, very few who discus it, this board is usually dead, and those who read it , read it in trades man,
And another reason why i am annoyed about its low sales, is it seems now that kirkman is giving it a much lower priority and the comic has been really troubled by all these delays, like month in month out. Take it however you want it , yeah there is a bit of fanboyshness here , i felt i really wanna say this .
