As with the last several issues of Invincible, we gained more information on the time Monster Girl and Robot spent in the Flaxan dimension. In these flashbacks, we see how the many decades of ruling over the Flaxans have strained the relationship between the heroes. Over the years, Robot has spent more time focusing on Flaxan political problems while growing more distant from Monster Girl.
“Robot Jez and Mark on a spaceship!” This was the text that Fanboy Comics Contributor Jake Thomas sent me as soon as he finished watching the newest Doctor Who adventure. The second episode of the new series is aptly named “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship,” as it features a spaceship full of dinosaurs.

Doctor Who has just returned with the first episode in Series 7 titled “Asylum of the Daleks,” and my first reaction is confusion . . . and I am not yet sure if that is good or bad.
The latest character in the Turtles universe to get the focus of a micro-series issue is Fugitoid. Issue #8 in the micro-series shines the spotlight on Fugitoid.
Like all guys my age, I grew up on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles have been a part of my life for pretty much as long as I can remember, and, to be honest, I think that IDW's current comic book is the best iteration yet.
The last issue of Star Wars: Darth Maul - Death Sentence ended with Darth Maul's gleefully sinister grin at the prospect of fighting Jedi. Issue #2 picks up moments later, as we are thrown into the resulting battle. The incredible action sequences in this issue give the series an adrenaline boost of epic proportions.
The Guardians of the Globe are Image Comics' major superhero team who are usually relegated to supporting characters in Invincible. Guarding the Globe: Volume 1 collects the six-issue miniseries chronicling their first solo comic book.
The four-issue miniseries Super Crooks by Mark Millar and Leinil Yu has just concluded. It is published by Marvel's Icon Comics, which is the division of the company that has been putting out the best comics lately. Also, out of Icon are Millar's Kick-Ass, Superior, Secret Service, and Nemesis, as well as Brilliant by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley (the team that brought us Ultimate Spider-Man). Icon has become an outlet for the superstars at Marvel to create completely original, creator-owned comics, which has allowed for fresh, new worlds and cinematic stories.
Within the first page of the book, I was immediately captivated by author Brit Sigh's use of the English language to describe a scene. In Torn in Two, he has crafted a psychological thriller full of twists and turns.
As far as I am concerned, if I was only able to have one comic book title in my pull list, that book would be Invincible. As the series approaches Issue #100, it still remains as fresh and exciting as ever.
