    I love this series, and I'll say this for the 100th time, "This is my favorite super-hero book on the shelves." I really enjoyed this issue and the reason why Bulletproof got to put on Mark's costume. It makes perfect sense, and it doesn't feel forced. Once again, I love this art team, and I think they're leading the way for how super hero comics should be drawn. I'm becoming more and more of a fan of General Thragg because he's a character you love to hate and hate to love. Overall, I highly recommend this series because it's what super hero books should strive towards. Read Full Review

    Invincible #89 is a great start for what I consider to be the best super hero ongoing being published right now. If you follow my reviews then you know I love Invincible. You know I recommend it every single month. Now you have the perfect chance to read this series. See what I've been talking about and see if you enjoy it as much. There's really nothing to lose with this issue. It's a good place to start so you won't be in the middle of a story arc and unable to understand what's going on. Read Full Review

    Although Robert Kirkman stamped a bit 1st Issue in a Bold New Direction on the cover (he did something similar with issue #51, as I recall), the direction isnt quite as bold as one might think. But that doesnt mean the issue isnt strong and the story doesnt work. I hope Mark isnt sidelined for too long, but as long as he is, its nice to know weve got an interesting story to keep us company.

    Invincible is one of those books that are my go-to for recommending to new readers that want to get into comics. It's the perfect book for that. While I might have skipped an issue here and there, this one needs to be added again to my pullbox soon enough. Read Full Review

    Invincible looks to be taking a turn for the better, judging by the multiple developments in this issue. The two things the book is principally good at- character development and balls-to-the walls action- is noticeably absent here, and thus the issue seems a bit dimmed in comparison. Still, long-time fans can't really complain, seeing as there were a lot of things that could go wrong and none did in actuality. That's an accomplishment in and of itself, in a sense.

    Anyone coming into this comic completely cold is also going to be completely confused. There are a lot of characters floating through these pages, some with deep-shared history with Invincible, some not as much. All the same, the sheer quantity could be a bit overwhelming. I would have expected a little visual assistance in the form of floating caption boxes with characters' names at least to help new readers feel more welcome and integrated into this series. However, if those new readers have a bit of patience and some resilience, they'll quickly realize what a fun read this issue is regardless of knowing all the characters. A quick internet search can really clear up quite a bit of the confusion. More importantly, they'll be in on the ground floor for the next big developments in the "Invincible" series.
