Official Press Release
After a nearly instantaneous distribution level sell-out, Robert Kirkman and Ryan Ottley’s INVINCIBLE #60 returns next week with a cover by Ottley featuring the villains of the issue’s done-in-one mega-crossover, ‘The Invincible War’!
“Telling an entire inter-company crossover in a single issue is something I’ve had my eye on for awhile,” Kirkman said. “It wasn’t easy to do, but the results are totally kick ass! I got the chance to play with Image’s full line of superheroes, including a few you haven’t seen in awhile, like PITT! It was a lot of fun for me to put INVINCIBLE and company through the ringer in a fight that completely devastated the planet, but poor INVINCIBLE has no idea the worst is yet to come as ‘The Invincible War Aftermath: Conquest!’ begins next issue!”
INVINCIBLE #60 began with a bang as INVINCIBLE’s greatest nemesis attacked the Earth with his army of Invincibles from throughout the multiverse, forcing the entire armada of Image superheroes including SPAWN, PITT, WITCHBLADE, DARKNESS, SAVAGE DRAGON, YOUNGBLOOD, MADMAN, DYNAMO 5 to strike back against the unrelenting horde! In addition, the oversized issue sets the stage for ‘The Invincible War Aftermath: CONQUEST!’ storyline beginning in issue #61.
INVINCIBLE #60 2ND PRINTING (FEB098569), a 40-page full color comic book for $3.99, will be in stores April 8th, 2009. INVINCIBLE #61 (FEB092421), a 32-page full color comic book for $2.99, will be in stores April 22nd, 2009.
