The Invaders by John Byrne

November 13, 2022|In General

First appearing in mid 1975 as a Giant-Size issue, The Invaders was the idea of Roy Thomas with his deep love of Golden Age characters. Thomas initially teamed up with penciller Frank Robbins. The Invaders lasted 41 issues and one annual during its first volume.

The Invaders have been brought back over the years for various series and mini-series. In 1991, John Byrne paid tribute to them on the cover for No. 12 of Namor the Sub-Mariner.

Here’s the art repackaged as an Invaders cover. New colour and re-created trade dress by me.
