Inv42If you lower the price, they will come — or so thinks Image Comics, which is offering a bargain-priced edition of its hit INVINCIBLE:

This March, Image Comics is offering readers who still haven’t discovered INVINCIBLE a chance to try the series out for only $1.99. Featuring the start of a brand-new story arc and a complete recap of the series so far, INVINCIBLE #42 is the best jumping on point since issue #1.

Written by Robert Kirkman and featuring art by Ryan Ottley and colorist Bill Crabtree, INVINCIBLE #42 starts fresh after the devastating events of the Mars storyline concluding in issue #41.

“Mark has just saved the world, and it’s not the first time, but everyone saw it happen,” said Kirkman. “We’re going to really start exploring Invincible’s standing with the public starting with issue #42. Things are going to be a bit different from now on, and it’s an excellent time for anyone who’s been on the fence to finally take the plunge and find out what INVINCIBLE is all about.”

Since its debut, INVINCIBLE has received widespread critical acclaim, with everyone from ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY to WIZARD to G4 TV’s ATTACK OF THE SHOW and Comedy Central’s COMEDIANS OF COMEDY singing the title’s praise. In 2004, Paramount Pictures optioned INVINCIBLE for a feature film, with Kirkman himself attached to write the screenplay.

“INVINCIBLE continues to be one of our most popular titles,” stated Image Executive Director Eric Stephenson. “Sales continue to climb on both the single issues and the collections, but we still hear about people who haven’t given it a chance. INVINCIBLE #42 is an excellent jumping-on point for those folks.”

INVINCIBLE #42, a 24-page comic book in the Image Slimline format priced at $1.99, is available for order now (FEB071908) in the February issue of Previews and will go on sale April 25.
