    But as with issue #1, it's Cecil more than anyone who stands out. This is a character I took a long time to warm up to in the main series. But Hester has done solid work with him thus far, and the final few pages of this issue are easily my favorite Cecil material in the history of the franchise. That bodes well as this new series continues to grow and focus on the various other members of the ensemble cast. Read Full Review

    Ket's Comics - Michael Bowie May 8, 2013

    I was a bit unsure after issue #1, but if Phil Hester can continue with what he did in issue #2, presenting us with a large scale view of the Invincible Universe while still coming in to give us a more intimate view of individual characters, then this could prove to be a very interesting title. He and Todd Nauck evidently have a lot of characters they can play with so this one could have legs for a very long time. Read Full Review

    Fans of Invincible should pick up this series if they are looking for another dip into the Invincible universe. I'm excited for this series, even with it's couple of hiccups. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Apr 30, 2013

    It's odd and vaguely disorienting to see such a drastic change in tone partway through a second issue like this, and it leaves me wondering about the attitude of the series going forward. Was this a temporary fluke, or willInvincible Universebe this serious from now on? Or, a third possibility, will we see a finer balance struck between the fun and grim elements? Read Full Review

    I'll read almost anything Todd Nauck draws and I'm a casual fan of the Invincible characters due to a nostalgia for the classic comics of my youth. Throw in the fact that literally anything can happen in these books, I'm fine being a subscriber. I will say that if you're going to start off a new series, no matter what, try to make the first arc accessible. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Brandon Dingess May 1, 2013

    This isn't a bad book, but it's wholly average and I still haven't discovered its raison d'tre. Last month I said issue No. 1 was boring and, because of that, I wouldn't be reading this one. But I decided I wanted to read about Chinese Dragon wrecking a government facility, so I made a liar of myself. Truthfully, though, my life would have been no poorer had I done otherwise. After two issues I think I can finally be firm in my judgment of this title: If monthly installments of "Invincible" aren't enough to keep you sated, then start buying this. It's not as good, has less focus and may struggle for a long time before it finds a groove, but it's not a terrible book with which to tide yourself over, either. 2.5 stars. Read Full Review
