    Invincible Returns was a solid enjoyable read. I felt Id purchased a product well worth my 3.99 and it did a great job of setting up and hyping the upcoming Viltrumite war. So overall Id say it was good. New readers looking to get in at this exciting time I highly recommend this to you, and for longtime readers then you shouldnt miss out on this either because it does do a good job of furthering the series and really gets you hyped up for the Viltrumite War.

What it does best is show the gory s Read Full Review

    I didn't read Invincible before this and I don't plan to if this is what the title is usually like. This was an oversized issue, but it seemed to have only about 10 pages of story spread out over a whole lot of fattened dialogues. Read Full Review
