    Invincible #73 is another excellent installment of what is becoming an amazing story arc. If you for some reason haven't been reading this story arc, I once again highly recommend you pick up the last 2 issues, as well as Invincible Returns as this really is turning out to be the best story arc for the series ever and its an absolute must read so far, and I have a feeling it won't be losing any steam anytime soon.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing where this series goes, and the possibilities for all the characters involved. If you can find them, jumping in with the Invincible Returns one-shot and then Invincible #71 & 72 gets you caught up with what you need for the current issues. If you have access to those, I recommend giving them a shot, as this is a great title if you're into superheroes but don't want to have to follow umpteen titles and crossovers to get a well-rounded story.

    Invincible is a book that loves to shake things up every so often, and issue #73 is no exception. This issue is a surprisingly light-hearted affair considering that issue #72 ended with Mark killing Conquest and cradling his own intestines in his arms. This time around the Grayson clan kick back and relax on a remote planet while Mark's body slowly repairs that gaping chasm in his torso. This allows for plenty of humorous and endearing interaction between Nolan and Oliver. Allen and Tech Jacket also form a surprisingly amusing pair. This humor does come at the expense of the action at times. Much as in the latter issues of War of the Supermen, Kirkman's script teases at a great many epic conflicts that are only barely glimpsed on the page. Ryan Ottley's ever-gorgeous pencils practically demand more carnage and bloodshed, even if they do handle the character moments oh-so-well. I won't be at all sorry when the story picks up once again and the Graysons are back in the thick of things. Read Full Review

    Mark is hurt badly and the Viltrumite war is being waged in every reaches of the universe without him, his father, and his brother. Months pass and Omni Man and Oliver Grayson, bond while attending to Marks wounds. But will they make it in time to help the fight the Viltrumite war? This issue annoyed me because it showed that Invincible would magically be healed up very soon although his guts were pulled from his being last issue. All of the drama established about the importance of the fight are useless, if the next issue erases everything and heals Mark completely. Nothing was gained, nothing was lost. Meanwhile, the war continues and it doesnt really matter as Mark and family are sitting this one out. Its a sleight of the hand for the reader and a cheap trick. I bet by the time we return to Earth Atom Eve, Marks girlfriend will have given birth already... The art is of course good and solid as usual. It might have been the most pleasant thing about this issue. Read Full Review
