After her shocking discovery of religious corruption, Vess must choose between quiet obedience in the monastery, and deafening truth . . . in exile. Meanwhile, Grix learns that Lux will stop at nothing to keep her newfound knowledge from leaking, and decides to make a break for it. Both women might feel terribly alone- but not for much longer.

    INVISIBLE KINGDOM #2 ups the stakes and does some world-building in the process. We meet a few new characters, learn more about Vess and Grix's pasts, and get a nice paced issue. Ward continues to take risks with some a great amount of panel variety and fantastic art. Read Full Review

    With visuals like this it is easy to over look the web of intrigue being woven across two worlds. An impressive comic packed with Sci-Fi and Social commentary. Read Full Review

    I'm really enjoying Invisible Kingdom a whole lot and I'm really hoping that there's a couple dozen issues plotted out for it as I'd like to invest some real time and enjoyment into it, both for writing and artwork as presented so far. There's so much to explore and what little taste we have so far has me wanting more of all of it. Read Full Review

    It still feels a bit like we're waiting for liftoff when it comes to the plot, with G. Willow Wilson taking her time to thread these two narratives into one, and that's fine as long as the payoff is worth the wait. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alex Clark-McGlenn Apr 24, 2019

    A solid #2. It keeps the tension up without feeling tired, complexifies characters and progresses plot with some beautiful art. While there is a blip of contrivance early one, this issue quickly recovers and is very satisfying. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gustavo S. Lodi Apr 29, 2019

    Despite a complex world and gorgeous visual, "Invisible Kingdom" #2 fails to become truly compelling due to the lack of focus on characters and their emotional reactions, instead of moving the pieces incessantly from place to place. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Apr 24, 2019

    Even the art and color scheme by Christian Ward was interesting and very reminiscent the Handmaid's Tale. Especially with the Sister of the Invisible kingdom who wear red habits and red veils, to indicate their status. I also enjoyed Ward's naturalistic approach to draw the viewer into truly believing this world could exist and, by not getting to outrageous and leaning on the organic reality of what the reader already knows.
