    All in all, this was yet another great issue from this series, which is quite honestly, no surprise. Read Full Review

    Ryan Ottley's work is mostly satisfying, if a little more sharp and angular than usual. The only real flaw to be found is that his new, chubby take on Eve continues to be weirdly inconsistent. It's rare to see any characters in superhero comics that don't have Olympic-class physiques, so in that sense it's nice to see any book attempt something different. Still, his Eve is extremely variable in appearance and looks particularly awkward in costume. If this is going to be an ongoing look for her, I hope Ottley can perfect his visual take in upcoming issues. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 23, 2011

    For some reason, this issue feels off-balance to me. Whether it's because of the long build-up to the reveal at the end, or the quick return to mundane moments after the long months of outer-space battles and high adventure/drama or something in the narrative isn't clear to me. After three passes on this one, I still can't quite pin it down. The art is quite good throughout, the quiet moments should be a nice touch, and it's good to see Dupli-Kate (one of the most awesome/awkward names in comics) again, but I suppose that I didn't care for the seemingly trickery involved in HOW the reveal came around. I do like the fact that Mark isn't even bothered by Eve's minor weight gain, something that could have turned into another "why is our hero acting like a jerk?" moment. Invincible is a book in the classic style, with 70′s style plotting combined with 90′s style shock to create something that feels new and different, so I expect that I'll get over my reserations quickly enough.
