    He's good, nothing highbrow but he fulfills the same tier as say Johns when he isn't shitting the bed and indulging in his fanboy tendenceies
    I'll say this, Kirkman's edge factor has been toned down immensely after Invincible ended

      By Johns I assume you mean Geoff Johns. A buddy of mine says he wrote the best Flash and Green Lantern stuff.

    Depends on how much you like characters acting like jerks. That seems to be the most consistent thing about Kirkman. He likes writing jerks.

      I would say "And rape too" but meh, even limiting to just mainstream comics Alan Moore probably beats him there, if not just DC themselves.

But call him a manchild and you will be astonished at how he recoils, how injured he is, how he suddenly shrinks back: “I’ve been found out.”

            You're the one who's a pathetic manchild. If you had any maturity or intelligence, you would be able to make coherent points and back them up when challenged without relying on your homosexual memes, quotes, or insults just to shield your fragile ego. Look at you and behavior. Anyone who's actually smart or mature can see that you're no better than anyone else ITT. Stupid little queer.

              Also case in point to my original response - you being a whiny manchild that you are can not refute that "meme" without personally attacking OP, because deep down you know it’s true.

                >edgegay
                No I'm not. All I did was ask you what you think qualifies as a mature story, and you couldn't even respond and had a meltdown and started insulting everyone. The irony of you calling me a manchild while acting like a pathetic immature moron is hilarious.

    That mini works in his style because it doesn't have to be connected to anything else. It's just telling a story rapidly by using familiar beats and by visually showing you what this guy is like and what he's capable of, and to some extent what his world is like and what is normal there.

    The Walking Dead is over-written American angst like so many zombie stories, and Invincible is what Destroyer would have been like if he'd had to carry it for a hundred issues. His Marvel Team-Up I recall being fun because it switched characters up regularly and didn't fall foul of his weaker long-form game. His Ant-Man I recall relying heavily on fratboy hijinx, though I wonder how much of that was because they wouldn't bring back Scott Lang or Hank Pym at the time and wanted a character who was a complete break from those two to try and bring in new and younger readers.

    On balance I'd say he's a capable writer, certainly moreso than Bendis who usually reads like a cross between an episode of Friends and one of the weaker Mamet plays, as in there are voices there but they're never distinctive. Kirkman can at least make a character sound like an old man who's sick of it all with a few choice lines and scene setting, instead of having fifteen characters explain it by turns over takeaway for an entire issue.

      Did that mini have the same artist Invincible had? Cause it looks straight out of Invincible
      >Better than Bendis
      A rock out in my driveway is a better writer than Bendis

        Anonymous

        Yeah but the difference is that rock probably can't differentiate character voices or make them act distinctively, instead of relying on costume and power set to distinguish them.

        Also yes, Cory Walker, he co-created Invincible with Kirkman and did art duties on the first half-year, then periodically through the run, with another half-year toward the end. The art on this mini is a lot better than the early Invincible stuff, but I guess he'd had 6 years extra practice by then.

    He's good when writing things that aren't capeshit. Sometimes. He's by no means among my favorite writers, but that final issue of TWD is one of the best things I've read.
