Invincible Comic Reading Order, a superhero universe by Robert Kirkman (with Capes, Brit, The Astounding Wolf-Man, Tech Jacket)

  • by

Created by writer Robert Kirkman (famous for The Walking Dead) and artist Cory Walker, Invincible is an Image Comics Universe superhero, and now a massively popular TV Show on Amazon Prime Video.

Real name Mark Grayson, Invincible is just like most everyone else his age. He’s a senior at a normal American high School. He has a crappy part-time job after school and on weekends. He likes girls quite a bit… but doesn’t quite understand them. He enjoys hanging out with his friends, and sleeping late on Saturdays… at least until the good cartoons come on.

The only difference between Mark and everyone else is that his father is Omni-Man, an extraterrestrial superhero of the Viltrumite race, the most powerful superhero on the planet, and as of late, he seems to be inheriting his father’s powers. This sounds okay at first, but how do you follow in your father’s footsteps when you know you will never live up to his standards?

Luckily, his dad is around to show him the ropes, at least he WOULD be if he weren’t so busy saving the world all the time. Invincible is forced to go out on his own, and try and figure out how all this superheroing business works. The results are a monumental disaster, at least until he gets the hang of it.

Invincible has links with Eric Larsen’s Savage Dragon, which has been mostly downplayed in favor of Invincible’s own continuity.

Invincible Universe Reading Order

Let’s begin by establishing that you can obviously only read the Invincible title, and it’s pretty straightforward. The rest is optional.

But if you are here today, I suppose it’s because you want more and are interested in all the other titles. The adventures can begin with some titles that are prequels in nature but can be read a little bit later too, for example after the first volume of Invincible, if you prefer.
