    I give it a Must Reat because it was a great issue, but there's times I feel I should be giving it a Check It simply because I've lost so much interest due to the constant delays. This'll probably be my last monthly issue of the title as I switch over to trades. Read Full Review

    Superhero fans really should be reading this book. And hey, if you don't believe me, go to and check out the entire first issue for free in their Online Comics section. Just don't send me nasty letters if you end up spending more money than you planned on during your next trip to the shop, OK? Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Joey Davidson Jun 13, 2008

    With all of that in mind, issue #50 of Invincible is nothing short of fantastic. The art is on par with the rest of the series and Kirkmans writing manages to elevate the plot to a new level of meaning and intricacy. Things happen that will leave their mark on the book for years to come; Invincibles going to be dealing with this stuff for a long time. I cant wait. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 15, 2008

    This issue really does what it promises, shaking up the status quo in a pretty huge way, leaving sweeping changes across the Kirkman image titles, and making me wonder what Mark Grayson is going to do now. The Guardians of the Globe have changed, with most of the members quitting, and Cecil has been set up to be the greatest villain Image has ever seen, not to mention finally getting Mark & Eve together. This issue was quite awesome, with Ryan Ottley and Cory Walker knocking the art out of the park, delivering action and buckets of blood, with Kirman's writing living up the Invincible's title of "Probably The Greatest Superhero Comic Book In The Universe." It's a 4 out of 5 star book, easily the most anticipated buy in this week's sack of comics. I suspect that next issue would bea good point to start jumping onboard, if you're interested, and I highly recommend you do. Read Full Review
