The first title is Guarding the Globe #1. It is the Justice League of the Invincible Universe, but reading it is more like the Suicide Squad. The first Global Guardians team had a very spectacular death. This is the second team to bear that name, out of necessity more than anything else.
Critics have reacted positively to the launch of the series, in which superheroes both familiar and new must team up to protect the Earth in Invincible’s absence.
“Hester shows no problem in striking that familiar Invincible tone. Though there’s a fair amount of violence on hand, there’s also a slightly goofy, playful quality to the conflicts that prevents the character drama from overwhelming the series.”
“If Invincible is the best superhero comic in the universe, then Guarding the Globe will soon be in the running for “best team” book.”
- Mulltiversity Comics
“…a funny, intense, beautifully drawn comic that will have you hooked from page one.”
The second title to sell out is Thief of Thieves #8. Not really a surprise because this series continues to sell out since issue 1. In this crime drama produced by Skybound continues to captivate and impress audiences. Currently, AMC is developing it into a television series.
The 2nd printings of both Guarding the Globe #1 and Thief of Thieves #8 will be available October 3rd along with the next issue of their series.
