    Comic Bastards - Jordan North Jun 20, 2013

    Accenting everything is stellar art and color work by Ryan Ottley and John Raunch who really do their respective parts in making the characters and action look visceral and in your face as well as making the color stand out as if it was done by a demented ex-Pixar guy. Invincible, as always, looks great (particularly Eve who’s got curves for days. Shades of Topanga. Swoon). And Kirkman is Kirkman, you know the drill. Awesome stuff. As tongue and cheek as the header of best hero comic in the universe is, after reading a few issues of Invincible it`s hard to disagree, at the very least, that it`s up there. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Jun 19, 2013

    The issue's final page is marvelous, from both story and art standpoints. Kirkman sets up one of the most intriguing cliffhangers I've encountered in some time, and while it's accessible to newer readers, longtime fans will appreciate it even more. Ottley frames the scene as an incredibly disturbing over the shoulder shot that really brings the horror home.Not even during the “Death of Everyone” arc was I this excited about an upcoming issue ofInvincible.

    Kirkman also delivers some enjoyable material between the newly crowned Emperor Nolan and the imprisoned General Thragg, where Nolan seems to be doing his best to poke a sleeping bear with a stick. And finally, there's the material involving Levy himself, which is the most immediately poised to kick the book back into darker territory. Though the weird cliffhanger distracts from the Levy conflict a bit, this issue certainly succeeds in building excitement for what's in store. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ricardo Guajardo Jun 18, 2013

    Is this a issue that new readers can jump into at this point? Probably. What makes comics interesting is the back issue diving, which is essential to the overall experience in reading this series. Personally, I say risk the $2.99 and see if Invincible can bring a fresh take in the superhero genre to your life. Read Full Review

    Invincible #103 is a great issue, but a few things keep it from being a perfect issue. But the series continues to shake it's status quo up in great ways. Read Full Review

    Culture Mass - Wayne Strickland Jun 29, 2013

    There's something great coming in the future, but for now Invincible #103 is a good issue that continues the relationship between Invincible and Atom-Eve. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 25, 2013

    Even when it's bad, Invincible is a strong title, and Kirkman still has enough credit earned that I'm continuing with the title, but I'm not really feeling this one. I like the reveal of William and Rick's seemingly-impending nuptuals, and Angstrom Levy is one of the more visually distinct characters in this world, but I'm not looking forward to Eve's near future. (She's on a slippery slope of crying ineffectually or using her powers and injuring her child, neither of which is a plot that I particularly want to read about, especially since she's been a pretty badass superhero character in her own right. Invincible #103 is one of the periodic "catch-up-on-all-the-plot-points" breather issues, and it does it's job well, but it sets up for stories that I don't really want to read, and features some spectacularly dumb moves from our hero.
