    If you dropped Invincible after the Viltrumite War or returned to waiting for the collections I highly recommend you jump back on with this issue. With the pacing picking up, the character work returning to the forefront and some great moments this is the best issue of Invincible in a long while. It left me rejuvenated for more come next issue and has me more excited than ever to be reading Invincible on a monthly basis. Read Full Review

    Um, okay... I guess... So Dinosaurus destroyed Las Vegas... I really don't know what to think of that. I kind of like that Robert Kirkman is trying to give Invincible a new foe, and Dinosaurus does have a pretty cool look, but destroying Las Vegas? It seems a bit far fetched to me... I mean, didn't the people hanging out in Vegas notice a giant, 9 foot tall, red dinosaur walking around hiding bombs? The first half of this issue was a lot of talking, and for once, I didn't thoroughly enjoy it... I don't know, for whatever reason, this issue just didn't click for me... Read Full Review

    What starts off as a typical supervillain tussle takes a truly shocking turn on the last page, again setting this book apart from those others. It also serves as a reminder of the kind of freedom you get with these creator-owned comics. If anybody tried to do something like this in the Marvel or DC Universe, it would take a year's worth of committee meetings to decide if they were going to do it, and then spawn five spin-off miniseries and a banner headline for every book that showed the aftermath of the event for the next year. With Invincible, things are nice and self-contained. This issue works out well. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 15, 2011

    But pacing and tone aside, this series does seem to be on the right track as it enters its new phase. And Ryan Ottley and the gang deliver vibrant, cinematic artwork as always. Issue #81 will determine whether this new twist can push the series into a new and exciting direction. Read Full Review
