Well, I read the Atom Eve and Rex Splode special thingy that shows those characters' backstories. Gave me a reason to care about Rex, since his backstory is pretty tragic. Doesn't change the face that he's still a dick in the main series.
There was a funny little bit at the end. I assume as they were being released as individual issues, people wrote in asking why there wasn't a backstory for Invincible. so at the end, there's a page or two with the title "Why Invincible isn't in this comic" and it just showed Invincible/Mark sitting at home doing homework, and then his Dad comes home and asks him if he got his powers yet.
Whole point being that Invincible only gets his powers once the main series starts, whereas Eve had her powers since birth, and Rex got his powers about a year or two before Mark.
I'm about halfway through Snowpiercer. There is almost nothing the same as the movie. Different character, the class system within the train is different. The name of the train is different, the catastrophe was caused by something different, and even Kronole/Chronole is different.
I really wish there were at least some people I could discuss Invincible/Thief of Thieves/Outcast with. :/
Anyway, I'm getting caught up on Invincible, and it's actually really good. Even though Mark seems to let himself be pushed around a lot by Cecil, his Mom, Amber, Eve, Robot, The Immortal, Art, Nolan, random strangers, and pretty much everyone except for William, we still manages to be a compelling character.
Also, though I kind of failed to understand any sort of real attraction to fictional characters, I think I'm beginning to understand thanks to Invincible(specifically, the character Atom Eve).
