I get way too into fictional universes. I've been loving the INVINCIBLE animated series on Amazon and waiting an entire week proved too difficult - which prompted me to buy and read the digital version of INVINCIBLE: COMPENDIUM ONE. The collection contains INVINCIBLE comic issues #0-47 (trade paperback volumes 1 through 9) and is one of three compendiums. I'm a nascent comic reader, so I can't say how this compares to other comics. That being said, I loved it - and the biggest surprise to me is how the animated series (so far) is making some major improvements to the comic in terms of a streamlined story and inclusivity. If you've been following the series, the comic has a different chronology. So, if you're trying to avoid spoilers, you may want to wait until the animated series finishes its run. While the comic has a wider array of zany characters, the animated series seems to be focusing on character development (also, the comic is less gory).

All in all, INVINCIBLE: COMPENDIUM ONE is a fun romp, and I can't wait to read more. If you're liking the show, you need to experience the Invincible comics now!
