Invincible Comic Book Universe Reading Order

Invincible isn’t just one of my favorite comic books of all time, it’s up there for my favorite superhero comic book run of the 2000’s.

While Invincible is fantastic, it actually gets mildly overlooked due to writer Robert Kirkman’s otherworldly success with The Walking Dead (not to mention all the many great Image Comics). Nonetheless, it’s a brilliant superhero universe, that expands to a number of other Kirkman penned titles like Astounding Wolf-Man and Tech Jacket.

In general, you can read Invincible all the way through without worrying too much about tie-ins. Reading all the in-universe additions can really help fill out the world, though, and you’ll find a complete reading order for all those comics below!

Robert Kirkman's Invincible

Invincible Universe Comic Book Reading Order

Invincible: The Ultimate Collection, Vol. 1

Collects: Invincible #1 to #13

Invincible Presents. vol. 1: Atom Eve & Rex Splode

While actually published 4-5 years after the first issues of Invincible, this Atom Eve & Rex Splode collection flashbacks to a time before the first Invincible story arc. I still recommend reading it after the first Invincible story.

Tech Jacket Volume 1: The Boy From Earth

Collects: Tech Jacket #1 to #6

Again, Tech Jacket technically occurs prior to the first Invincible story arc, but I would recommend reading after simply to familiarize yourself with the character.
