Robert Kirkman already breezed past the 100-issue milestone on "The Walking Dead" earlier this year, and soon, his other long-running series — the superhero story "Invincible — is about to meet the same achievement.
"Invincible" #100, written by Kirkman and illustrated by Ryan Ottley, releases in stores and for download on January 23, 2013. Kirkman tells MTV News that based on the story's title, "The Death of Everyone," you shouldn't count on the adventures of Mark Grayson or his friends continuing past the issue.
"Issue #100 ends up being a real turning point for Mark Grayson that will change the storyline irreversibly moving forward," says Kirkman. "When you do a long running story like this, I feel it's important to keep evolving the kind of story you're telling, so there's always an element of 'new' in the mix."

Josh Hutcherson was long mentioned as a front-runner for the lead role of Peter Parker in Sony's "Spider-Man" reboot -- some even pegged him as a virtual lock for the part -- but as we're all no doubt aware by now, Hutcherson won't be spinning webs for Sony. That's a distinction belonging to Andrew Garfield.
But just because the "Spider-Man" ship has sailed for Hutcherson doesn't mean that the "Journey to the Center of the Earth" actor should close the door on the comic book community.
Here are a few other roles we could see Hutcherson taking on! Read More...

Why, it's only fitting for fans to celebrate the coming decade by choosing a renewal symbol straight from their favorite storytelling medium.
Read on for a list of comic book babies who could very well fill the coming year with surprises. Read More...
