Official Press Release

BERKELEY, CA -- This March, Image Comics is

offering readers who still haven't discovered INVINCIBLE a chance to

try the series out for only $1.99. Featuring the start of a brand-new

story arc and a complete recap of the series so far, INVINCIBLE #42

is the best jumping on point since issue #1.

Written by Robert Kirkman and featuring art by Ryan Ottley and

colorist Bill Crabtree, INVINCIBLE #42 starts fresh after the

devastating events of the Mars storyline concluding in issue #41.

"Mark has just saved the world, and it's not the first time, but

everyone saw it happen," said Kirkman. "We're going to really start

exploring Invincible's standing with the public starting with issue

#42. Things are going to be a bit different from now on, and it's an

excellent time for anyone who's been on the fence to finally take the

plunge and find out what INVINCIBLE is all about."

Since its debut, INVINCIBLE has received widespread critical acclaim,


OF THE SHOW and Comedy Central's COMEDIANS OF COMEDY singing the

title's praise. In 2004, Paramount Pictures optioned INVINCIBLE for a

feature film, with Kirkman himself attached to write the screenplay.

"INVINCIBLE continues to be one of our most popular titles," stated

Image Executive Director Eric Stephenson. "Sales continue to climb on

both the single issues and the collections, but we still hear about

people who haven't given it a chance. INVINCIBLE #42 is an excellent

jumping-on point for those folks."

INVINCIBLE #42, a 24-page comic book in the Image Slimline format

priced at $1.99, is available for order now (FEB071908) in the

February issue of Previews and will go on sale April 25.
