Review: Invincible Volumes 1-3

 

Now that the full run of the Invincible comic series is over, it’s time to start reading the collection of trade paperbacks my husband has acquired over the years!

We told Jay we were coming, and he asked me to send him my media kit so he could try to get me on programming. Which would have just been a bonus — honestly, we were going anyway at that point, and had even bought the fancy passes that came with the cool t-shirt.

But I sent Jay my media kit (after frantically putting one together), and lo and behold, I got an email from the person in charge of author guests! It was official — J.L. Gribble was going to SLCC, not just Hanna.  Continue reading
