    As always, it doesn't matter whether Kirkman's scripts are crammed with action or, as in the case of this installment, are more dialogue-driven. Ryan Ottley handles it all with ease. His dynamic figures and facial work keep the story humming along as Kirkman transitions into the next phase of the Invincible saga. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Augie De Blieck Jr. Mar 20, 2013

    The issue bounces around a bit, but fills in a lot of necessary gaps. It might not be the issue that's remembered in specific detail a few years from now, but it's one that shows off some of the skills of the creators involved that don't always get remembered. "Invincible" has a large cast, and keeping up with as many of them as the title does will require issues like this, to close some doors and set some scenes up in the near future. Long-term readers will enjoy the more personal moments, though readers looking for the big bloody violence of recent issues will come up short. Read Full Review

    Ket's Comics - Michael Bowie Mar 21, 2013

    Presumably big things are coming for Invincible and everyone around him, with Invincible Universe debuting in just two weeks, and this issue does a great job of getting us ready. Though relatively light on action, there is enough recap here to get new readers up to speed, continuing plot lines to keep old readers interested and foreshadowing to me us all want to see what comes next.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Mar 20, 2013

    After the previous three issues of nearly nonstop action, it's nice for Invincible to slow down a bit to get resettled. But while this issue did keep me casually interested, it never got me really invested, given its somewhat ho-hum approach and lack of urgency. That said, the foreboding ending suggests that the calm between storms won't last long. Maybe I should learn to appreciate it while I have the chance. Read Full Review

    While we saw some setup in this issue I felt that it fell a little flat after the last couple of stories. I know that something can't be happening in every single issue (the world isn't always about ot end) but I felt that the payoff was lacking a little this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Nuts - Jef Mendoza Mar 22, 2013

    Nothing spectacular happens in this issue. Mark finds out his girlfriend is preggo, confronts Robot, goes to check if Cecil is not doing anything bad with Dinosaurs' corpse. The only meaningful thing happens at the very end where Cecil punishes Omni-Man finally. Read Full Review

    Barron Network - R.Barron Mar 21, 2013

    Coming off the 100th issue you would expect a little bit of a drop off but this issue was borderline boring and that worries me. I want to say for a while now it seems like Kirkmans heart wasnt into this series because what was once greatness passes as mediocre. I can only hope that the series picks up a bit because as of right now its just meh Read Full Review
