Artist Cory Walker Talks Reuniting With Robert Kirkman on Invincible
Robert Kirkman Talks Hope and Betrayal in The Walking Dead #150Perhaps it's appropriate that now Invincible is paying homage to its past in another way. Original Invincible artist and co-creator Cory Walker is returning to the series for a new six-issue story arc beginning with Invincible #127. It's not the first time Walker has returned to the book he helped define, but it's definitely the most ambitious story he's tackled since his original run. We recently had the chance to talk with Walker via e-mail and learn his thoughts on the enduring appeal of Invincible and what lies ahead for Mark Grayson and his family.
Warning: this interview contains a few spoilers for Invincible #126!IGN: When you and Robert first launched Invincible 13 years ago, did you have any inkling it would last as long as it has or find the audience it did?
Have you read Invincible?
IGN: What led to the decision for you to return to the series? Were you feeling the itch to dive back into that world?
Walker: Oh, yeah, I’m always itching for it. You know me. I’m a genuine fan of the book and I’ve always been involved in varying degrees through the years, but as the opportunity began to present itself, this possibility that I could come on and fill-in for a few issues, it was pretty exciting. I have slowly been working on other things and haven’t had a comic on stands since I shared art duties with Ryan back on the Flaxan invasion/Rex and Monster Girl story back in Invincible 92-96, so the prospect of putting ANY comics out relatively soon was a sweet enough proposition, but make it Invincible and I can’t say no.IGN: Your previous return to the series was in the form of a shorter story arc that took place away from Earth and revolved mainly around Nolan and Allen. How does this story compare in terms of its scope and focus?
Walker: Oh, things are much different this time around! This is much bigger and more essential, I think. Previously when I had filled in on the book, those stories focused on what are basically supporting characters and the stories themselves were somewhat supplemental to the main arc, I guess. Does any of this sound like I know what I’m saying? I hadn’t drawn Mark or Eve in an Invincible comic since Invincible Returns #1 and even then that was just a little back-up/recap story. So now, I’m in here doing primary character/main story stuff in the wake of the Reboot? storyline that’s basically setting the stage for the future of the book, and that’s a pretty big deal. It’s exciting stuff that I’m thrilled to be working on.
IGN: Are there any characters you’re especially excited to be working with again?
Walker: It’s a real treat to get to draw Mark and Eve again, as well as little Terra. I think I’m most excited about the new characters we’re introducing, though. I’ve got high hopes that they’ll make a splash and become fan favorites.
IGN: There are a lot of conflicts brewing in the series right now. What’s the general status quo for Mark and his allies as you and Robert kick off this new storyline?
Walker: Well, I can’t really say, can I? We’ve missed out on five years of goings-on up in this Invincible universe and “what’s the status quo” really is the question, y’know? What has Thragg been up to? What happens with Nolan and Debbie? Where’s Oliver, and why does Allen have two eyes? These are the sort of questions we’ll be answering in coming months. It’s really the coolest thing about these issues I’m working on, reintroducing characters to the readers after a 5 year gap in time and showing what’s changed and what has stayed the same, if anything.
IGN: Would you say your art style has evolved much since the last time you worked on Invincible?
Walker: I don’t know. Not much, if at all, probably. I do think though, that if there is a noticeable difference it is because I’m working all-digital whereas in the past I was inking with real pens on real paper at a real desk, etc. So, I dunno. Some things are almost definitely going to come out looking a little weird, as I haven’t had any digital sequential work published yet. It will be interesting seeing what worked and what didn’t and when I should have maybe zoomed in a little less when inking that tiny figure in the background. Otherwise, though, I don’t think anyone is gonna be confusing me for any other artist or anything. It’s still the same old Cory Walker nonsense.IGN: Robert and Ryan just wrapped up the “Reboot?” storyline and had Mark revisit key events from the beginning of the series. How did it feel to see that era of the book come back into play and be reinterpreted through Ryan’s eyes?
Walker: It was great seeing Ryan draw all that stuff! I’ve “joked” with Robert before that he should have Ryan redraw those issues completely. Sadly, I think this is the closest we’ll get, but I’ll take it.
IGN: How much have you and Robert discussed the future of the series, especially as Invincible starts nearing the 150-issue mark? Could you see yourself returning again to celebrate that milestone?
Walker: Are you kidding?? Sign me up for an Invincible #150 cover and back-up right this second. I’d be seriously upset if the boys left me out of a milestone like that. Robert and I haven’t discussed much beyond what’s going on in these upcoming issues I’m illustrating, but I know enough to be SUPER excited about where things are going.
IGN: Do you have any other projects in the works you’d like to tease?
Walker: Nahhhhhh. I wish I could tease an Ostrichard comic, but I can’t because that’s not a thing. Maybe next time!Jesse is a mild-mannered writer for IGN. Allow him to lend a machete to your intellectual thicket by following @jschedeen on Twitter, or Kicksplode on MyIGN.

Delta 8 THC Guide
If you live in any part of the United States, you may be able to order Delta 8 THC online. This is because the ingredient is made from cannabis, which is now a Schedule I drug. federally, Delta 8 THC is strictly legal! However, here's a quick overview of how the law works: Under the 2021 Farm Bill, all hemp-related cannabis, cannabidiol (also known as CBD), and any derivative products derived from it must contain a federal form of government permission. Any company manufacturing cannabis products must register with the United States Drug Enforcement Administration, which means anyone who orders from them, unless they express otherwise, will receive a government stamp of approval for the product.
Although Delta 8 THC gummy bears do not contain THC, they can still be ordered by anyone over the age of eighteen years old. However, if you are worried about consuming cannabis, or you are in serious pain, or are in a rehabilitation facility or mental health facility, you should contact your doctor before taking any medication, and he will most likely recommend that you stay away from any Delta 8 THC products, at all. On top of that, you need to be aware that smoking or eating cannabis can lead to a host of serious side effects, including the development of lungs and liver cancer. However, it is important to note that most Delta 8 THC products do not include any therapeutic value. In fact, many advocates of this cannabis extract claim that it is the safest and most effective natural remedy for any type of chronic or medical condition, including nausea, seizures, glaucoma, and more.
Two brands of Delta THC are distributed by Vapors: One brand is in a gum form, while the other is in a tasty but small cigar-like format, which is easy to carry in your pocket. Both offer a variety of different strains, which are all carefully chosen based on what works best for each individual; thus, there is no concern whatsoever about getting the wrong strain. These two products also work great as a sweetener, and some people even report that they feel more alert and energetic upon having these two products. Delta 8 Thc is an excellent choice for anyone who has been smoking pot for years, as well as anyone who simply need a boost to make them feel more alert and on top of things. If you are looking to try out cannabis, or would just like to try something different to help improve your general mood, Delta 8 THC may be just what you need to regain control of your life.
