Invincible cast and creator discuss the magic behind their brilliant new show

Gillian Jacobs, Zazie Beatz and Robert Kirkman chatted to JOE about their incredible new show.

As we said in our review of Prime Video's new animated series, if you grew up on a healthy diet of cartoons, then Invincible will immediately feel like it is something special.

While it takes the learning-your-powers-as-a-puberty-metaphor and takes it a very different direction, the art style of the show and the story behind feel at once very comfortable and knowing, all while constantly twisting them in subtle way to make sure you never quite know where it will go next.

A lot of that comes down to Robert Kirkman, the creator of the comic book Invincible that this show is based on, but he is probably still best known as the guy who created The Walking Dead.

Another huge part of it comes down to the absolutely jaw-dropping cast-list this show boasts:

J.K. Simmons, Seth Rogen, Stephen Yuen, Sandra Oh, Jon Hamm, Mark Hamill, Walter Goggins, Jason Mantzoukas, Zachary Quinto, Justin Roiland, Djimon Hounsou, Jonathan Groff, Ezra Miller, Nicole Byer, Mahershala Ali... the list goes on and on.

In the run-up to the release of the show, we were lucky enough to chat to not just Kirkman, but two of the voice-cast members, Gillian Jacobs (Community, Love) and Zazie Beatz (Deadpool 2, Joker).
