Cory Walker Returns to Invincible


Your name doesn't have to be Kotter to be welcomed back. In fact, if your name is Cory Walker, Invincible fans will welcome you back with open-arms. Why? Because the original artist is returning to team up with Robert Kirkman for a new story arc starting this April. Invincible #27 (Diamond Code FEB160514) hits stores April 20--The final order cutoff deadline for comic book retailers is Monday, March 28th.

“I’m a genuine fan of the book and I’ve always been involved in varying degrees through the years," said Walker, "but as the opportunity began to present itself, this possibility that I could come on and fill in for a few issues, it was pretty exciting. I have slowly been working on other things and haven’t had a comic on stands since I shared art duties with Ryan back on the Flaxan invasion/Rex and Monster Girl story back in Invincible 92-96, so the prospect of putting ANY comics out relatively soon was a sweet enough proposition, but make it Invincible and I can’t say no.”

INVINCIBLE ORIGINAL SERIES ARTIST CORY WALKER RETURNS
Beloved co-creator of the long-running creator-owned superhero series begins new arc

New York Times bestselling author, multiple award-winning creator, and pop culture phenomenon Robert Kirkman (THE WALKING DEAD, OUTCAST BY KIRKMAN & AZACETA) reunites with original series artist—the fan-favorite and industry-beloved Cory Walker—for an all-new, heart-wrenching, jaw-dropping story arc coming this April from Image/Skybound.

In INVINCIBLE #127, Mark has returned from the past... to a very different future. Now he has to pick up the pieces of his life and try to put them back together.

In an exclusive interview with IGN, Walker added: “I’m a genuine fan of the book and I’ve always been involved in varying degrees through the years, but as the opportunity began to present itself, this possibility that I could come on and fill in for a few issues, it was pretty exciting. I have slowly been working on other things and haven’t had a comic on stands since I shared art duties with Ryan back on the Flaxan invasion/Rex and Monster Girl story back in Invincible 92-96, so the prospect of putting ANY comics out relatively soon was a sweet enough proposition, but make it Invincible and I can’t say no.”

INVINCIBLE #127 (Diamond Code FEB160514) will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, April 20th. The final order cutoff deadline for comic book retailers is Monday, March 28th.
