Invincible is one of those really good super-hero comics that has flown under the radar. Robert Kirkman has incorporated all of the great super-heroic tropes into an entertaining story that has a wonderfully cohesive continuity. Unfortunately, it has been overshadowed by Kirkman's much more noticed series, especially The Walking Dead. After thirteen years, it will officially end in the final, twelve-issue story "The End of All Things." Here is the press release from Image Comics.
Invincible immediately grabbed readers' imaginations in no small part thanks to the artwork of co-creator Cory Walker. Over thirteen years of stories has seen the title character grow from a courageous teenager to a hero and a father. The most recent story line saw Mark begin his story over, but choose to go back to the life and the family he had in the present. Unfortunately, it never quite works out that simply.

Caveat, I am a rabid Marvel 2099 fan, I hated Kirkman's attempt to touch the 2099 universe, I hated the 2009 Time Storm crap, and I enjoyed Claremont's use of Miguel in Exiles but it just wasn't the same. Finally! I've enjoyed a little 2099 again in the Superior Spider-Man run.
