    There's not many comic publishers doing super hero comics really well outside the big two, but Invincible is up there with some of the best of all the publishers. Read Full Review

    It's been a great lead up on the storyline to issue #100. With an epic fight between two titans and a world ending scenario this issue has delivered an action packed read. The last panel is even able to tease that the worst of it is still to come. Kirkman has no problem ruining the lives of his characters so it will be interesting to see what will happen next month.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Jan 1, 2013

    From the very beginning, “The Death of Everyone” has suffered from having too much story to tell in too-small a space, and that problem persists. While I don't really foresee the story righting itself in next month's concluding, extra-sized issue, there's always a chance. Read Full Review

    Leading up to the landmark hundredth issue, "Invincible" #99 throws a lot of great images at the reader in a fast-paced, full-blown adventure. Kirkman and company have thrown a curve into the world of Invincible and that curve appears set for a tremendous payoff in "Invincible" #100. Read Full Review

    Another pet peeve of mine is the fact that Dinosaur is so close in power with Mark. I just dont think it makes any sense. Why would he be on an even keel let alone stronger then Mark? Shouldnt Mark be able to mop the floor with him? Read Full Review

    X-Man's Comic Blog - Jason Todd Jan 8, 2013

    I get why they did splash pages, to cover up the fact that nothing really happened here. I stretched the summary out a bit but this could've easily been summed up as, "Mark and Dinosaurus fight while the Guardians of the Globe save people, Dinosaurus tries to kill Mark as the issue ends." This was more filler to get us to issue #100, and while this issue wasn't bad, I'm not into this series as much as I used to, it's like it lost it's luster after the Viltrumite War, and sadly issue #100 may be my last issue unless it completely blows me away. As for this, it was more filler than anything, so I'll give it a middle of the road score. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 2, 2013

    In a series rocked by over-powered villains and dramatic plot twists every few months, Kirkman has managed to deliver a conflict with proper dramatic weight leading up to issue #100. Unfortunately, this penultimate issue derails the momentum established last month thanks to some terribly uneconomical dialogue and poor storytelling choices. Hopefully we can expect more from the finale chapter. Read Full Review

    Let's hope that Kirkman and company can turn around a good ending to "The Death of Everyone." Creators are allowed a bad issue now and then, but the timing of this one isn't good for them. Read Full Review

    One last thing before I put a bow on this there are a few panels at the end that really bugged me. Its roughly the end of the fight sequence. Invincible is fully costumed while fighting Dinosaurus. Then a building falls on them both. Dinosaurus clears the wreckage holding Invincible by the back of the neck. Why is this interesting you may ask? Well because for seemingly no good reason Invincible is now completely naked. How did it happen? I dont know. Is it an error? Anything is possible. Its just weird though isnt it? Did his costume get caught on something as the building collapsed? Or did Dinosaurus feel his foe just needed to be unclothed and shredded it himself. We may never know why its in there but it is. Read Full Review
