Official Press Release
BERKELEY, CA — This March, Image Comics is
offering readers who still haven’t discovered INVINCIBLE a chance to
try the series out for only $1.99. Featuring the start of a brand-new
story arc and a complete recap of the series so far, INVINCIBLE #42
is the best jumping on point since issue #1.
Written by Robert Kirkman and featuring art by Ryan Ottley and
colorist Bill Crabtree, INVINCIBLE #42 starts fresh after the
devastating events of the Mars storyline concluding in issue #41.
“Mark has just saved the world, and it’s not the first time, but
everyone saw it happen,” said Kirkman. “We’re going to really start
exploring Invincible’s standing with the public starting with issue
#42. Things are going to be a bit different from now on, and it’s an
excellent time for anyone who’s been on the fence to finally take the
plunge and find out what INVINCIBLE is all about.”
Since its debut, INVINCIBLE has received widespread critical acclaim,
with everyone from ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY to WIZARD to G4 TV’s ATTACK
OF THE SHOW and Comedy Central’s COMEDIANS OF COMEDY singing the
title’s praise. In 2004, Paramount Pictures optioned INVINCIBLE for a
feature film, with Kirkman himself attached to write the screenplay.
“INVINCIBLE continues to be one of our most popular titles,” stated
Image Executive Director Eric Stephenson. “Sales continue to climb on
both the single issues and the collections, but we still hear about
people who haven’t given it a chance. INVINCIBLE #42 is an excellent
jumping-on point for those folks.”
INVINCIBLE #42, a 24-page comic book in the Image Slimline format
priced at $1.99, is available for order now (FEB071908) in the
February issue of Previews and will go on sale April 25.
