    If you don't read INVINCIBLE, you're either crazy, broke, or hate super-hero comics. I think that sums it up. This is an amazing book. It's one of my favorite series and this issue ranks up there for me. I'm going to keep this short and sweet. Do yourself a favor and read this issue, read this series. This is the comic that super-hero fans deserve. I highly, HIGHLY recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    The action does heat back up in the second half of the issue. The resulting conflict is a bit different than what the cover advertises (Eve doesn't actually appear, for one thing), but that's really for the best. The tension spikes and Kirkman effectively builds to another memorable cliffhanger. Thanks also to some particularly strong work from Ryan Ottley, this issue ably overcomes whatever bumps in the road crop up in the earlier pages. Any chance the next issue can arrive as promptly as this one did? Read Full Review

    This issue is very good, but it's one of those which fall just short of being great. Now that the Scourge Virus plot thread seems to be done, in retrospect the arc wasn't as solid as some of the classics of the series. Nevertheless, the book seems to be heading at an interesting, if not controversial direction. That's right folks- there's going to be a replacement Invincible, and he's a minority! Here's to hoping that this doesn't end up in a disaster; Kirkman certainly has the chops to pull of a respectable turn at that sort of story. Read Full Review

    All in all, I am disappointed by this comic. Named Invincible, you would think it would be something great. However, this is an example of a comic that is over-plotted way too much, and needs to scale back its scope quite a lot which is ironic since most comics need to extend their scope. Not this one however Read Full Review
