EVERYTHING IS DIFFERENT NOW! We return to Earth after the brief space interlude involving Nolan and Allen the Alien... but is it the Earth we knew?! What changes have taken place? What has transpired in the time we were away? Who is DINOSAURUS?! This issue is a can't-miss for long-time fans of Invincible and an excellent jumping-on point for people who have yet to dip their toes in the INVINCIBLE waters.

    There's really no satisfying this reader when it comes to Invincible. During the Invincible War, and the subsequent Conquest arc, I complained that things were moving too fast. With the Sequids, I wish Kirkman would finally get the action started, as this is a plot thread that has been burning since the early days of the series. For this particular issue, the story moves at a great pace, and the comedic moments perfectly off-set those moments that are jaw dropping in their implications. I still feel that Invincible is one of those titles that is still very much ignored and under rated, which is really sad as readers are missing a fantastic story and this issue in particular is deserving of 4.5 out of 5 Stars.

    The two highlights come at the end, however. In both cases the scenes could clearly have benefited from more space. The final page in particular seems woefully out of place with the largely upbeat tone Kirkman presented in the rest of the issue. Even still, they offer some intriguing new material for fans to mull over and make it abundantly clear that Kirkman has plenty of surprises in store even before "The Viltrumite War" begins. To top it all off, Ryan Ottley is back on art. It was nice to have Cory Walker back for two months, but at this point Ottley has really defined the look of Invincible and made it his own. Whatever pacing issues I might have had, this was one darn fine installment, and certainly one of the better books this week. I would suggest potential new readers start getting caught up now before the crap inevitably hits the fan in a few months. Read Full Review

    The book's pacing is a bit of a mess, but the strength of its characters and the sheer number of developments in its pages more than makes up for that. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Hill Nov 23, 2009

    Invincible did have a firm grip on Dinosaurus' neck at one point, though, and that was after the creature was revealed as a sort of were-monster who can't control when the demon takes over. Was Mark really going to settle for a final solution before being interrupted? Given that this is a Kirkman comic, I'd have to say yes. And that's pretty scary. All in all, a solid comic with a satisfying spectrum of plot threads unfolding at a brisk pace. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 26, 2009

    This issue makes me thankful for Kirkman's unique take on heroes and on families, for not having an idiot father-in-law, and for the detailed and loving remembrance of soiled women past. Read Full Review
