Crossing The Line

One of the big indie comics of the last several years is Invincible, by Robert Kirkman through his Skybound Studios and published through Image.

A lot of people recommend Invincible because of its classic comics vibe and all-ages feel.  "It's perfect for young readers!"

...uh, yeah...about that....

Invincible #110 just hit the stands.  During a fight scene between Invincible and female Viltrumite, Invincible is raped.  Not hinted at, it is very graphically depicted (only the pink parts are obscured) and is played as a horribly violent power trip and not sexy at all.

I bring this up because of 1) trigger warnings and 2) anyone who tells you that Invincible is suitable for all ages?

Don't believe it.
