    This issue is compact, intense and hard hitting, soaked in blood and big moments. It’s a simple but effective issue with mighty plot developments paired with Ryan Ottley`s simple, but always cinematic art. This is a good issue of a good series of comic books that I’m eagerly planning to follow from here on out. Read Full Review

    Yes, it is indeed a new dawn for the Viltrum Empire, and for Invincible. I explained last month my less then enthusiastic reception of the Death of Everyone arc but I continued on through last month and into this month's issue because I love this series and because Robert Kirkman is a great writer. And I can tell you now that I'm glad that I stuck around because issue #102 definitely reinvigorated my love for this book and already has me looking forward to next month. Read Full Review

    There really is a lot going on in the world of Invincible right now. He's still hated by many of the world's heroes. He's engaged to get married. His dad just became the leader of the race that once threatened Earth's extinction and is now trying to protect it in secret. The next issue though? It promises the return of Angstrom Levy whose entire goal in life is to destroy Invincible. I'm sure that will spell a few problems to Mark and Eve's happy news. Read Full Review

    My only issue is that why didnt Nolan just kill Thragg?! Thragg is clearly going to be a threat in the future and no matter how much Nolan has changed he should know better than to keep someone like that around. I know this is going to straight up bite Nolan in the ass. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Liam Jose Apr 23, 2013

    Ryan Ottley's art is wonderful, as ever, and he's really become one of the best storytellers in the business at this stage. The consistency of this title is pretty stunning, and it always finds its way to the top of my stack. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 24, 2013

    The pacing in this issue is all out of whack, but the end result of this sudden conflict looks to benefit the series moving forward. Kirkman caps off the issue with another scene of change that that offers a welcome emotional moment. The series continues to move in a satisfying direction. At this point readers don't really need any massive surprises for a few months. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Apr 24, 2013

    Invincible#102 has a fisticuff-laden plot made heavy by the weight of its revelations and developments. Long-time readers, in particular, will find it very rewarding. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Augie De Blieck Jr. Apr 24, 2013

    "Invincible" #102 is a strong done-in-one issue. Taken away from the on-going battle arcs and plot lines, it stands nicely. Maybe it falls a bit too close to the usual style of the series, but it's a good formula to stick to. As with any good story, the issue leads to more questions than answers and will keep bringing readers back to the series every month to find more answers. Read Full Review
