This quirky comic book centers around a mild-mannered superhero with the unique ability to step out of the comic strip panels to affect the events in other panels, breaking the rules of time and space with imaginative, mind-bending – and often hilarious – results. It won the Bologna Ragazzi Award for Best Comic at the 2020 Bologna Children’s Book Fair, and has garnered enthusiastic starred reviews from Kirkus, Booklist, and Publishers Weekly.
- Kirkus (Starred Review) -- “dozens of mind- and narrative-bending graphic mini-adventures” “ uncommon cleverness”
- Booklist (Starred Review) -- “Jousselin breathes joyous life into the form for fans and scholars of every age”
- Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) -- “exudes infectious charm as he inspires those around him.”
After catching the attention of so many noted reviewers, Magnetic Press’s “local superhero” has been chosen to be a Junior Library Guild Selection, receiving the coveted JLG Gold Standard Stamp, signifying a title of the highest quality and a must-read book chosen for their curated collection.
Magnetic Press’s Publisher Mike Kennedy responded to JLG selection by saying “MISTER INVINCIBLE has such a unique and clever appeal to readers of all ages that there’s no wonder why it is so universally praised. We were hooked when we first saw Pascal Jousselin’s wild, fourth-wall-breaking series of strips, and that seems to hold true for almost everyone else who picks up, too! It sparks the imagination and will change the way you think about comics.”
