Gold Key Comics came out with a terrific four issue comic book series based on the TV show The Invaders starring Roy Thinnes. Dan Speigle was the perfect choice to illustrate the series, giving it a great realistic feel. The comic books brought a great compliment to the original novels and TV series.

Architect David Vincent, accidentally learns of a secret alien invasion already underway and travels from place to place, painlessly attempting to foil The Invaders' sinister plots and warn a skeptical populace of the danger that awaits them. As the dramatic series progresses Vincent is finally able to convince a small number of people to help him with his valiant fight against - The Invaders.

There was also an original three book series in paperback by Keith Laumer & Rafe Bernard, an original Whitman hardcover novel by Jack Pearl and even an original Big Little Book story by Paul S. Newman.

I've enjoyed Roy Thinnes introduce each episode on the DVD collections. 

I recently acquired the scale model reissue, adding to my Invaders collection. Had it growing up, love having it back in my collection!
