We’ve worked closely with the creators to capture the passion and excitement of the creative process as they developed everything from the endearing characters to the gory twists.”

Throughout its fifteen-year run, Invincible not only continued for a historic 144-issues but also spawned multiple spin-off series’ and even an inter-company crossover with a certain friendly neighborhood superhero. In 2021, the Invincible animated series arrived on Prime Video and quickly became one of the most popular new streaming series of the year, earning praise worldwide for its fresh storytelling.
