    Unleash The Fanboy - Jeremiah Peace Jan 29, 2014

    This was the first issue of Invincible that I've ever read; there's no way in hell I can let it be the last now. The artwork alone has me hooked and, as any good serial should, the ending of this issue has me anxious to see what follows. If you've been reading the series, I don't see how you can miss this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jan 29, 2014

    This is what I like to refer to as a payoff issue. Kirkmans been leading up a lot, hes had a lot pokers in various fires and clearly several have turned red hot. This issue has some absolutely shocking moments that simultaneously wrap up and set up future storylines gloriously. I have some rough idea of what will happen next, or at least have deluded myself into thinking I do but thats also what I thought when this issue started, so clearly I actually have NO IDEA. And that is absolutely thrilling. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Bob Bretall Feb 13, 2014

    Is this a good jumping on point? Absolutely not. We're in the middle of things here and they're awesome, but may be a bit too much backstory needed to fully appreciate what goes on here. I can wholeheartedly recommend this series for fans of superheros who would like to get a bit of a palate cleanse from the standard Marvel/DC fare. Go and get the Vol. 1 trade paperback and pick up the story from the beginning. If you like it, there's a LOT of great storytelling to experience and you can catch up to the present in considerably less time than the 10 years (Wow! it's been that long!) that I've been reading this series.

    Nerds Unchained - Michael Bowie Feb 1, 2014

    As much of a payoff as this issue is for long time fans of the series, its also a pretty good starting place as well. Even without the background of 107 issues, I cant imagine anything in this one being to hard to follow, and from what I can see, it appears to be the start of a very interesting story arc and one that will have major ramifications on the series going forward.

    Nerds On The Rocks - Josh Raj Jan 29, 2014

    Overall, this was the first issue of Invincible I have every read. With some quick Wikipedia research any reader could jump in at this point. I am sure the shock was greater for long time fans rather than someone like myself. A few of the panel layouts were cluttered, but the dialogue during those moments made them bearable.

    Rhymes With Geek - Josh Reifler Jan 30, 2014

    Waiting for the next issue of Invincible always feels like you're anxiously waiting for a bowl of the best soup in the world. When its finally ready, instead of a bowl you only get a thimble. I can not wait for the next issue. After 108 issues I'm still hooked and my interested hasn't wavered once. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Taylor Lilley Feb 3, 2014

    This, this is a good superhero book, one where strength is the only certainty, and escalation is unavoidable, not unbelievable. It leaves me asking my favourite comics question: "How's he going to get out of this one?" Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - James Johnston Jan 30, 2014

    So really, even though “Invincible” is advertising its soft-relaunch in a couple months, it seems to be ultimately unnecessary. “Invincible” #108 didn't confuse me or make me wary about the series, if anything it made me want to read past volumes while keep up with the forthcoming issues. While a lot of books nowadays are giving in to the fad to reboot, it may not be ultimately necessary as “Invincible” #108 proves that it can still be a good idea to drop into a book at any random number.
