Kirkman takes over the universe

November 20th, 2008 by

I just finished the latest trade of Invincible, the first trade of The Astounding Wolf-Man, and I’ll picking up the first trade of Capes tonight at the library.  How prolific is this man?  How many continuing series is he going to write?  Would Image fold completely if he was in a plane crash?  Looking at the back page, listing all the available trades, you could go broke just keeping up with his output alone.

Both trades were fun, and the stories keep growing in complexity, bringing in plot twists on the last page.  Now I have to decide whether or not to wait for the next trade, or try to find the single issues.  If I decide to catch up with the Walking Dead (should be easy, they’re a slow-moving bunch), I have friends whose copies I’d be able to read.  I think they also have singles for Invincible, but I don’t think they decided to buy AWM.  I didn’t think I would get into the latter, but the story picked up, and I think there’s going to be a crossover with Invincible soon.

    You’ll have to bring over Capes and The Astounding Wolf-Man on Saturday when you come over for the Book Club. I really want to read both of those. 🙂

    Pretty please!

    These library books have gotten a lot of use! Over Thanksgiving weekend, our nephew Jake and cousin Patrick read them, not to mention myself & Marty.

    I liked Capes, but I was totally hooked on Wolf-man. I can’t say that I have any literary praise for it, but I could not put it down, and the cliffhanger at the end trapped me. Must find more!

    Wonderful! I’m so glad that they got so much use. Speaking of them being library books…..
