Want to meet Robert Kirkman? Now’s your chance.

The man whose name is these days most often associated with “The Walking Dead” — either the hit AMC zombie series or the comic book — will appear with illustrator Ryan Ottley on Saturday, Feb. 2, at Earth-2 Comics in Sherman Oaks to celebrate the 100th issue of their comic “Invincible” and to commemorate the store’s 10th anniversary.

Published by Kirkman’s Skybound imprint at Image Comics, “Invincible” offers a fascinating take on the superhero comic — Mark Grayson must come to terms with the powers he possesses and the legacy that comes with being the offspring of the world’s most powerful hero, Omni-Man. Over the course of “Invincible’s” narrative, Grayson’s story has taken a number of unexpected twists, and in the process won a devoted following.

Kirkman created “Invincible” with Cory Walker, and he’s written the comic with Ottley as the main illustrator since 2003. The pair will be on hand Feb. 2 from noon to 3 p.m. for a party and signing to commemorate the 100th issue, which is set for release Jan. 30, and concludes “The Death of Everyone” storyline.

“This is an exciting event because ‘Invincible’ started at the same time Earth-2 opened 10 years ago,” Carr D’Angelo, founder and owner of Earth-2 Comics, said in a statement.” It was a comic we were in love with from the beginning and hand-selling to everyone who walked in. It’s an honor to celebrate this occasion with Robert and Ryan.”
