Hey, it's a 10 Thoughts post! Yeah, that's as much of an intro as I have...
Invincible Presents: Atom Eve and Rex Splode Volume One. Collecting Invincible Presents: Atom Eve #1-2 & Invincible Presents: Atom Eve and Rex Splode #1-3... Phew!
Synopsis: Basically this trade fills us in on what Rex and Eve were up to before the events of Invincible #1. There, how's THAT for a synopsis!
-Eve was a government experiment... I knew that already, I think... No, that HAD to have come up in an issue of Invincible... Right?
-Eve's “siblings” are pretty freaky looking.Boy, Atom Eve sure got the looks in her family!
-Her father is pretty weird looking too... I mean who lurks the streets wearing a lab coat?That's one sweet lab coat!
-Man, Eve has WAAAAY more reason to hate the government than Invincible does! Bastards...
-I love that Rex's family basically sold him for a steak!
-Man, I forgot how awesome Rex was... He was an epic little teenage ninja!
-So Rex first met Eve while she was fighting her arch-nemesis, Killcannon! I also love that Eve has like the WORST arch-enemy ever! Killcannon... Yikes...
-Okay, I'm going to just come right out and say it... I LOVED Rex's first super-hero costume!That's right, I LIKED that costume!
-His second costume, Pyro-Lite? Not so much...The Man.
-After reading these issues, I have to say, it sucks that Rex died. He was probably my... 5th or 6th favorite Invincible character... You know you're reading a great series when you even HAVE a list of favorite characters, especially when the list goes beyond like 3!
Score: 9 out of 10. Super solid trade, that gives insight into two of the supporting characters in the Invincible books. If you don't read Invincible, you probably wouldn't care for this trade, but if you do read Invincible, it's definitely worth a look.
