A sequel comic series to The Incredibles Rise of the Underminer was one of the launch titles for Boom! Studios' Disney line, beginning in March 2009 with the four-issue miniseries Family Matters before switching to an ongoing format. Written by Eisner-award winning comic writer Mark Waid and Landry Walker and drawn by Marcio Takara and Ramanda Kamarga, it expands the scope of the film universe with new characters and villains as well as re-introducing Xerek, the villain of early drafts of the movie.
Unfortunately, the finale of the storyline was indefinitely delayed due to Boom! Studios inexplicably cancelling the title in the fall of 2010, one of several factors that led to Disney ending their contract with Boom! the following year. Marvel later reprinted the first two story arcs, but the reprints sold poorly. As of 2018, it is now unlikely the comic's story will ever be resolved, as it has been rendered as an alternative timeline by the events of Incredibles 2, and the current license holder, Dark Horse Comics, published completely different series comics to tie in with the new film.
Divided into four issues each, all storylines were published in trade-paperback and hardcover collected forms shortly after completion.
