    These two books offer a more typical treatment of the Western hero: he resolves conflict at any cost, particularly if the issue is personal. Millar's X-Men is vibrant and well drawn, qualities that bring out the character's strong passions and reactions. The obscure plot has the mutants enslaved to the government's Weapon X program and pretty pissed off about it, insatiably drawn to conflict as ever. Who saves 'em but Mr. Out of His Head himself, Wolverine. Kirkman's Invincible features passionate, heroic characters. While the book is a wonderful addition to the genre, the characters are regimented by their drive to duty and adherence to the traditional honorable code. They do seek-and-destroy villainy until it gets personal-and then it's all bets off.-Douglas Lord, Connecticut State Lib., Middletown Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

    Mark, high school student and the son of Omni-Man, has finally developed his powers. With his new costume and burgeoning strength, he will one day be a match for villains on a galactic scale, and already he can hold his own against some intimidating foes. But there are enemies much more insidious, much more threatening, and not all of them wear a villain's face This omnibus edition of Invincible is clearly the ideal way to read the series, as the stories take a leisurely enough pace that they only achieve their full emotional impact when several can be read in a row. The cover and colors are lush, and the extra materials in the back provide intriguing insights into the title. The story is compelling, presenting teenage melodrama without a trace of condescension, and even the inevitable superhero-crush-on-a-girl-he-can-never-have subplot receives a fresh spin. The book's main weakness is a chronic inefficiency, telling moments or scenes in many times the number of panels required, but the dialogue and art are of such a high quality that this inefficiency feels like a guilty pleasure. Teen readers can find a familiar power fantasy in these pages that feels new because of Kirkman's attention to the domestic life that Mark and his father maintain alongside their heroics. The only limitation on this book's popularity is the fact that its characters do not have the immediate recognizability of the X- and Bat-titles. But if it keeps up this kind of quality, the series is bound to reach broader and broader audiences.-Joe Sutliff Sanders 4Q 4P J S G Copyright 2006 Voya Reviews.
