    I had no need of a major upheaval like Invincible #60 to renew my interest in the series. It's been on an upswing for a year now. But explosive storylines like this certainly don't hurt. The series only became more compelling thanks to issue #60, and I look forward to see what Kirkman has up his sleeve next. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Mar 19, 2009

    I bought this book with only minimal knowledge of "Invincible," and most of that is from other readers or friends telling me, "This book is awesome!" or "You gotta read it!" or some such. Invincible is a Marvel character in the worst possible DC scenario, yet rises above both. While I sure don't know all the backstory, I'm certain there's no lack of resources to get me up to speed as I look to the future for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Ottleys rendering of the various vignettes for this issue works. A lot of stuff happens. But unlike Morrisons Final Crisis, the vignettes provide just enough information for the reader to complete the missing elements in one narrative. Thats good storytelling. Ottleys work is violent and full of blood, but dynamic. Perhaps his simplified and almost cartoony style is what will keep readers from perceiving the full effect of the gore in this issue.

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Mar 20, 2009

    The lack of permanence, or feeling that anything that occurs in this issue will have any bearing in any other Image title ends up making this issue feel more like a piece of fan fiction than something I should take seriously. Robert Kirkman delivers a great stand alone issue full of the fighting, and the punching, and the "hey lady!" and the glaven, and the ending where Angstrom gets his is really fitting, but there is just so much going on it is difficult to follow any individual sub-plot. While the big picture plot is cool and deserves 5 out of 5 Stars, the fan fic feel of the piece brings the issue rating down by at least three stars, but add on the four-page gate fold cover for a half star, and I can only give Invincible #60 2.5 Stars out of 5. That's not to say I didn't like it, just not in the main continuity of the series. Read Full Review
