Anyone interested in an hour-long, R-rated, animated superhero show from the man behind The Walking Dead? We thought so.

Amazon has just released the first full trailer for Invincible, based on the comic of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley. Steven Yeun voices the main character, Mark Grayson, a teenager who’s enjoying his newfound superpowers—which makes sense because his father, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons), is the world’s most famous superhero. But as Mark grows stronger everything changes, and a lot of that has to do with his family legacy.

We’d seen a few quick glimpses of Invincible in the past, but here’s our best look yet.

That looks pretty damned intense for an animated show. Even better than that, though, is the voice cast is beyond incredible. We’re talking Sandra Oh, Seth Rogen, Gillian Jacobs, Andrew Rannells, Zazie Beetz, Walton Goggins, Jason Mantzoukas, Zachary Quinto, Mahershala Ali, and Mark Hamill, just to name a few.

Invincible will debut March 26 with the first three episodes of the eight-episode season. New episodes will then come out every Friday leading up to the finale on April 30.

As a big fan of the comic I’m looking forward to it. The comic series itself went on too long, but there’s a lot of really good storylines to adapt and they can just ignore the less successful ones.

I’m glad the animation captured the look of Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley’s art. There’s something a little stiff about it, if that’s the right word, but it does capture the look of the comic.

Looking forward to this!
