Youngblood and good are 2 words I would never expect to hear together in a sentence unless the sentence is "Youngblood isn't good"

Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise?

It's smartly written. The returning cast of Youngblood vets are appropriately aged, disgruntled and washed up, taking the out of universe scorn the team has gotten and gently applying it in a way to craft a good story.

What about Image's most iconic character Spawn?

The last I heard about Spawn he died and got replaced by a white guy named Jim.

Al's been back since 2015 and the book's been the best it's been in years.

So Hell has officially frozen over.

There is a really, actually good Youngblood book out right now.

Alright folks, do I want to read Invincible on Comixology, or do I buy the Invincible Compendiums? I don't have the money right now to buy the series as its on sale, but getting the Compendiums is cheaper than buying the regular priced digital comics.

What to do.

I settled on getting the Compendiums at some point down the road when I'm fatter and richer since they roughly cost the same as buying the entire series on sale on CMX, and about $150 less than buying the trades normally.

They are also in black and white. Keep want in mind before you make any purchases.

Oh. Barnacles.

EDIT: Wait no they aren't. I just saw a video of someone opening one and it was in full colour.

How dare you bamboozle me

Just be a bit patient. The series just ended a little bit ago; it's only a matter of time before they release a new series of complete (and in color) collected editions.

I literally just watched a video of someone reading the Compendiums and they were in full colour.

May 6th 2018 at 10:18:16 PM

Was it the Compendium or the hardcover edition? I ask because my local library has the first Compendium and it's in black and white.

Compendium with the first 50-odd issues. I just checked it on Amazon and it's in full colour there too.

You sure you're not thinking of the Walking Dead?

May 6th 2018 at 10:23:57 PM

Nope, though they have that too. Very strange.

Okay new theory: Maybe you're thinking of Tek Jacket, who had a volume in B&W.

May 6th 2018 at 10:41:02 PM

I really don't know; it's Invincible. Maybe they just got a weird copy?

Mr.Badguy Relationship Status: YOU'RE TEARING ME APART LISA
May 6th 2018 at 10:55:39 PM

Okay I think I figured this out. Apparently there was a B&W version of the Compendium that was hardcover, and later editions were softcover and in full colour.

May 6th 2018 at 11:00:25 PM

That would explain it.

Anyway, back to your original question, the Compendium doesn't collect every comic in the run - there are about a dozen mini's and tie-in's that occur before issue #50 which do a lot to expand on the characterization of the supporting cast. Im not sure why these weren't collected, as a number of them, like the Eve and Rex-plode mini's are kind of essential for the run, but then again, Image in general hasn't been very good about collecting tie-in across the board with all of their comic series.

Continuing with some Youngblood issues. I like the series' continued focus on the franchise's tarnished reputation and how every returning character is a disgruntled burnt out asshole, and it's up to the next generation of heroes to actually make something out of the name. Add in a smattering of interesting capepunk concepts and you've got a strong superhero book that the original book could never hope to be.

Rob is a man with a sense of humor about himself.

Alan Moore: I'll write for your comic but, uh, the Supreme character is complete shit. I'd have to throw everything you've done out.

Rob: Okay.

Alan: ... Fair enough.
