Weekly Comic Book Review - Rob G.

Overall Invincible, and Kirkman's creations in general, are more daring and interesting than the run-of-the-mill comic. He never relies on milking a plot thread or nursing a sentiment issue after issue in an attempt to keep readers buying issues to see where things will end. Instead he relies on creative and daring stories and characters that aresusceptibleto just about anything to keep his readers hooked. I still hold fast to my opinion that Invincible is one of, if not the best, super-hero comic on the shelves today. Read Full Review
Overall, this issue can best be described as the calm after the storm has cleared. It was somewhat slow but fun none the less. The only real complaint I had with this issue is that it felt short. In all fairness, the last Invincible issue I read was roughly 60 pages so anything after that would feel short, but even compared to a normal sized issue this one felt extra short. Read Full Review
As usual, Ryan Ottley lends his own touch. Ottley's specialty has always been figure work more than detailed backgrounds, but there are several instances where Ottley goes the extra mile in rendering the full scope of the devastation. And the last page alone has me excited for the visual delights Ottley will spin in issue #62. It's a very good time to be an Invincible fan, and I highly doubt the excitement will be dying down anytime soon. Read Full Review
Of all the superhero books out there, Invincible is one that I look forward to reading every month. Even when the story gets a little weird in its execution, I still hang on to every word and image. How much worse can Invincible's life get is the question I am looking forward to finding the answer to, but for now Invincible #61 earns a respectable 4 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review
It's a bit confusing, but interesting enough. Read Full Review
