Say it Ain’t So: Image Comics Invincible to Come to an End
“The End of All Things” begins final story arc for Invincible by Robert Kirkman and Ryan Ottley
By Nolan P. Smith
In some of the most shocking comic book news I have heard this year, Image Comics announced that the fan favorite series Invincible will be coming to a close. From Robert Kirkman, the man behind The Walking Dead and Outcast, among more, and the amazing series artist Ryan Ottley, Invincible is often billed by Image Comics as “The Greatest Superhero Comic Book in the Universe”… and they aren’t wrong.
Ottley and Kirkman reunite to launch the final story arc, “The End of All Things”. Part One begins with INVINCIBLE #133 from Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment this November.
This twelve-part mega-story is said to touch every corner of the Invincible Universe, and when it’s over… It’s over. Every single story for the past thirteen years has been leading up to this ultimate showdown running up to INVINCIBLE #144—the very last issue in the series.
In a letter to fans, Kirkman explained his and Ottley’s decision to end the series. “We’ve got a little over a year to go, and it’s going to be one hell of a year! So please join us for our swan song, thirteen years in the making! We couldn’t have done it without you, the fans, so let’s all cross the finish line together!”
Absolutely shocking news, as I have been a fan for years. I will be on board for this final arc as we bid farewell to one of the most brutal, pull no punches superhero books to be printed.
