    Ryan Ottley's art shines, as always. He sprinkles in several gorgeous splash pages of Battle Beast and Thragg's epic brawl, just to ensure this issue has a little action to offer. His dialogue-driven scenes offer plenty of visual energy of their own. Meanwhile, Beaulieu is quickly settling in. His colors give the series the vibrant tone and clearly defined color contrast that had been diminished in the wake of FCO Plascencia's departure. Read Full Review

    Kirkman and Ottley continue to nail this book in every aspect, every issue. Invincible remains one of the few books I read that never lets me down, and even in quieter issues like this, support and advance the story. If you are ever looking for a truly satisfying superhero tale that is completely insular and needs no crossover books to read, start with issue 1 of Invincible. It harkens back to the earliest days of Marvel, and benefits from one constant writer for over 100 issues. Start here to learn more. Read Full Review

    Was this the most exciting issue in the series? No, it wasn't. It was mostly a character driven issue that focuses on the aftermath of recent events, so there isn't a lot of action and doesn't give artist Ryan Ottley the chance to draw copious amounts of blood and guts (though he does sneak in a couple bloody splash pages). However, I know it's only the beginning of a chain of events that will no doubt climax in the "terror, violence, mayhem, horror, and misery" that has become standard for this series. And although there is a ton of backstory, that I cannot recommend enough if you have not read it yet, this issue is a decent place for a new reader to jump in to get a taste for the series.

    Invincible #116 shows a great deal of promise. It lays a foundation for a new beginning for Mark and his family. Kirkman brings a harrowing display of dialogue control and intelligent storytelling, it just seems as though things are moving faster than they should. Ottley and Beaulieu are a strong combination and deliver an impressive issue. Read Full Review
