Sounds like a series I really need to start picking up. Where's a good jumping on point? Should I invest in some TPB's first to get started? Suggestions most welcomed! I loved Phil Hester's Invincible Universe companion series to this title and wish it had not gotten cancelled.

Honestly Invincible is worth reading from issue 1 on up, but thats not always realistic. A fellow poster on these here boards actually hooked me years ago by giving me the first 2 trades and now the CyberCoyote Bookshelves are sagging under the weight of the mighty load.

Recently a free issue was released (118) and if you arent adverse to digital #1 is free also. As far as the best recent jumping on point... the mentioned 118 was touted as such but personally I'd point to 105 which was a point where the Real Invincible came back to the series officially after some time away with a fill in friend. It also begins the amazing story that leads to Mark and his family now living off world. And you'll unfortunately get the WHOLE picture of why Hester's book couldn't continue.

First rule of Invincible; Don't let yourself get too attached to characters in Invincible (as if the great writing allows you to do that)
