Coming to you a little late but made with love, it’s the February 2014 edition of The All-New, All-Different Near Mint Comic Book Club! Ben, Dan, and Lucas are back in da club with this month’s selection:
Invincible (Image) Ultimate Collection Vol. 1. by Robert Kirkman (w), Cory Walker & Ryan Ottley (a) and Bill Crabtree (c).
In 2003, a young whippersnapper by the name of Robert Kirkman started writing two independent titles at Image Comics. One, a black & white zombie epic that would give life to one of the most commercially successful shows in the history of cable television. The other, a modern take on capes & tights that, in light of the recent reboots, is now one of the longest-running superhero titles in comics – and quite possibly the best.
Listen as we return to the beginning of what has become a great operatic series. See the creative spark as some of comics’ best creators embark upon their landmark work. Discover (or re-discover) a story that builds and matures right along with its young protagonist. If you love superhero comics, this is a book you need to be reading.

The Hero Initiative
Hero creates a financial safety net for yesterdays’ creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. It’s a chance for all of us to give back something to the people who have given us so much enjoyment.
