The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman is back with Invincible, a new ultra-violent animated series on Amazon Prime – and it’s damn good!
Invincible tells the story of Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun) a seemingly normal teenager and son of Omni-Man, an extraterrestrial superhero with Earth-shattering powers. Eventually, Mark will inherit his father’s abilities and join him in fighting crime and laser-beaming people in half. He starts to realise, that his father, the most powerful being on the planet isn’t the hero everyone thinks he is. He might just be just like a version of Homelander -only with a Tom Selleck moustache (That’s a fantastic combination). Heads will roll. Guts will spill.
And, man, what a fantastic cast. We have Steven Yeun, J.K. Simmons, Sandra Oh, Mark Hamill, Zachary Quinto, Seth Rogen, Clancy Brown, Walton Goggins and loads more.

And Amazon Prime caught me again. I thought I was sitting down to the full first season. Nope. There were only three episodes which left me with a thirst for more. Thanks for that Amazon. So now the wait begins for episode 4. I can’t wait. I am really enjoying it.
Invincible first appeared in an issue of Savage Dragon in 2002. It then got its own series and was published in 2003. It ended in 2017 after 144 issues.
If you fancy yourself some adult animation and beautiful gratuitous ultra-violence then stop what you’re doing and go and check out Robert Kirkman’s Invincible on Amazon Prime Video.
How long until the news is announced that we will get a live-action version or spin-off movie? I’ll give it one month.
Season one consists of 8-episodes. Only 3 episodes have been released so far. It’s up to you, check it out now and wait weekly or starve yourself so you can binge it in its entirety. Either way, I hope you enjoy it.
As always, thanks for reading.
