Marvel's All-New Invaders

Post by MajorHoy on Sun Sep 28, 2014 2:41 pm


In case anyone is interested, this issue winds up a three-issue arc with the original Deathlok the Detroyer



and on the last three pages, we get The Mighty Destroyer, Union Jack, and Spitfire about to tackle a giant metal contraption attacking London, as well as a red-headed gentleman in a straight-jacket and a padded room repeatedly mumbling "The Martians are coming. They're coming."


It's been an interesting ride so far by James Robinson as the writer, and even though this series is set in the present, it has plenty of nods to the WWII Invaders as well as other characters from Marvel's past. (And currently, we're about to see what happened to Toro (Thomas Raymond), who's now revealed to apparently have an Inhuman bloodline somehow?)

Preview for issue #10 is here: http://www.comicvine.com/articles/preview-all-new-invaders-10/1100-149882/

I'm really enjoying this book, though I suspect that it doesn't have long to go (events elsewhere concerning Namor and Cap are making it unlikely they'll be around much in the near future). I'm also a little concerned that they might be about to change Toro beyond all recognition, which would be unfortunate after we've waited all these months for him...

Numbers aren't too encouraging, either.

From the Top 300 comic books for September (which I believe is basically orders through Diamond Distrib. plus a few minor factors),
* 139th - ALL NEW INVADERS #10 - 17,821 copies

As usual, people complain that Marvel concentrate too much on the big name characters and don't put out books featuring supposedly lesser ones-and then, when they do, they don't buy them... Crying or Very sad

Well, to be honest, how many younger readers probably even care about a comic book based on a team that was active in WWII? Robinson isn't one of the "young and hip up-and-coming" writers, and the book doesn't have the words "Spider-Man", "X-Men", or even "Avengers" in the title.

That was kind of my point. The same people who complain that all Marvel put out are Avengers and X-titles do not support the more diverse titles. One guy on another forum actually said he had always been a fan of the Invaders, but hadn't bothered buying this series because he knew it wouldn't last! That's just mad. If nobody bothers to buy it because they think it won't last, the only logical outcome is that it won't last-it's a self fulfilling prophecy!
