Ok so this is a cover for Invincible Returns coming out in February. It's basically a One-Shot inbetween Invincible 70 and 71, Invincible is getting his old costume back.
You guys will want to see the pencils and inks to this one, it's a fun one. I'll post it soon!

While I really dug the Blue on Black suit, this design is a great blend of what worked about both designs as it's also a great blend of two awesome artists. Great stuff!

So Erik is still doing the bog hug fist in front poses...AWESOME! I hadn't seen one in a while, I was getting worried.

It's his signature move...i love it.

Is Mark ever going to go back to this costume and keep it, or alternate between this one and the blue and black one? I prefer this one :D

Nice! It definitely has that classic Larson/Kirby feel to the pose and the foreshortening. Very classic work here.
Kudos!

Probably the Best Superhero Comic in the Universe!?!

I'd say it is definitely!

Aw yeah! Ryan, it's like I said in the comments section back on your Invincible #52 cover [link] :

Me: "eh, I don't know. I'm going to have to hold off on a solid opinion. Right now I'm very put out. But that will change I'm sure.
I definitely agree with the guy below who said the black, blue and yellow definitely makes me think 'Invincible,' and yellow and blue have always been iconic 'good guy' colors. Hell, bruce willis even wears blue and yellow in 'Unbreakable.'
But it's not like we'll never see the old costume again. And that's a fact. I'm confident enough in my knowledge of serialized comic books to know I'll be seeing the good ol' yellow again.
So I guess I'll embrace the change. And I can't wait to see the blue costume in action!"

You: "You sir are a smart man. Thank you."

You're welcome, Ryan! *Fist pump* Rock, flag and EAGLE!

Saw the gloves, too. I liked the black and blue costume, sorta fit his little run in with Conquest. Anyway, glad to see you back on the book. Cory Walker did a hell of a fill in.

Oh, thanks!

Yeah, I can see it now. Man, even as a sketch it had tons of personality.
I love how the pencils kinda make him look like a late 80s Marvel hero ^_^
And you did a great job with the inking and all the corrections! Is this something similar to what you do in Haunt?
