    After seeing a series like Invincible through to the end, that was touching. Kirkman and this team really changed what you can do with a superhero universe. And they proved that they can pull off an impressively engaging finale like this without the reliance on action. Not many superhero stories could you get this kind of depth from knowing that there was no chance of a reset or relaunch. I do hope that I speak for many when I say that I can't wait for the movie now. Read Full Review

    The legacy Invincible leaves behind is something only so many books have accomplished. The final issue gives its readers everything that made the series what it is and why it will always be highly recommended to new readers. Invincible has truly earned his place among the list of greatest superhero comics of all time. Read Full Review

    A final issue isn't hard to rate. If you were a fan of Invincible at any point in its run, you owe it to yourself to pick this up. If you haven't heard of the book or ever read it, you owe it to yourself to pick up an issue and find out what you're missing. Either way, #144 is a worthy send off to a great superhero.

    As with the rest of this final story arc, Invincible #144 is a bit rough around the edges. There's also a certain frustration in realizing that Kirkman could easily have devoted an entire arc just to the events chronicled in this issue. But there's also something to be said for getting out while the getting is still good. Emotionally, this issue hits all the rights notes as Kirkman, Walker and Ottley bid a fond farewell to their creations. Read Full Review

    Invincible #144 is far from flawless, just as Invincible was. Narration drags at times and there is stilted dialogue. It speaks to the strength of the series' art and the emotional bonds of its characters that even when these are acutely noticeable, they're easily ignored. Like many favorite superhero comics, it's strength lies in its resiliency and boldness, forming an imperfect metaphor between Invincible and its protagonist. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 14, 2018

    After celebrating 15 years of stories, Invincible takes its final bow this week, and as far as finales go, writer Robert Kirkman and artists Ryan Ottley and Cory Walker send off this series with an ending that's both heartfelt and iconoclastic. Read Full Review

    Robert Kirkman's "Invincible" comes to an epic close here in the extra-sized issue #144. Having started the series through trades early last year to catch up around the "Reboot" in the #120s., I have read a whole lot of "Invincible," and this conclusion brings the series full circle. Not many series, certainly not superhero series, allow us to view the whole scope of a man's life, his failings and his victories. Mark was never perfect, and that makes him, and the universe Kirkman, Ottley, and Smith have built around him, believable. This was a truly unique series, and I'm gonna miss it.

    A rather rushed end to this classic series, it should have gone on to 150.

    I've been with Invincible since he was first teased in the back of Savage Dragon. The insanity of issue #7 insured I would see this series to the end, and now it is here.

    Overall I thing this was an acceptable ending, but I feel the way Kirkman and crew went about tying up its loose ends was a bit too broad. Laying out 500 years of future character history, without much room for potential revisiting because now we know where everyone important has to be. The End of All Things has felt like a case of 'rush to conclusion' and the conclusion itself is much the same.

    I do like that Cory Walker got to do the last half, closing out the series.

    A solid 8
