It came from outer space--and Invincible was completely unprepared. Get ready for another classic beat down in the grand Invincible fashion--but what does this have to do with The Viltrumites?

    Invincible #87 is another excellent entry in a series that just gets better with every issue. Whenever I think That's as good as it gets, there's no way he can top this issue. Kirkman is quick to prove me wrong and top whatever huge twist or big moment he just did. So while this issue's final page had my jaw on the floor I am not going to be surprised if next month I am telling you all Kirkman somehow outdid himself again. Read Full Review

    This was a good issue of this series(as per usual), but not a great issue... And why wasn't it great? For me anyway? Because the focus went back to Invincible for the first time in at least two issues... I know I said it before, but it bears repeating, I really don't like Invincible as a character right now. I don't know what the deal is, maybe the horrors of the Viltrumite War, coupled with Atom Eve and the (possibly) aborted/miscarried child, have just caused Invincible to get slightly off keel. But seriously, I just don't like HIM. I still thoroughly enjoy the series because of the ultra-strong supporting cast, but the main character? He needs a good ass-whupping. Read Full Review

    It's definitely good to have Ryan Ottley's dynamic artwork back. The big brawls that open and close the issue number among some of the most visually engaging scenes of the week. Unfortunately, the colors remain a bit problematic. John Rauch's colors often have an unnatural sheen to them, and in that regard the book is still finding its footing after the departure of FCO Plascencia. Hopefully that will change in the coming months. Read Full Review

    Invincible is gathering steam as it delves deeper into its next major story arc, and so far it seems to be a fun ride. Kirkman's treading unfamiliar ground, as usual; here's to hoping he doesn't falter and succeeds in delivering the next logical step in Invincible's saga. Read Full Review

    While I haven't exactly enjoyed this book as of late, this book's on a track to improving itself. Props to Kirkman for making an effort to drag himself out of a pit of boredom, confusion and overcomplexity. Read Full Review
