When you cover a story, you can go too deep.

    If you think comics are only for juveniles, then you haven't been reading Invisible Republic. This is what you show others when they say that all characters in comics are spandex wearing superheroes. Absolutely recommended. Read Full Review

    So, I'm hoping to see how Nica figures into Arthur's schemes of leadership and the broader revolution in the next issue. We need some time spent on the outside of the group, if only to see the changes that are coming. Read Full Review

    With Invisible Republic getting so much right, I am a little disappointed that the book continues to feel emotionally distant. Despite the excellent characterization and emotional stakes, I have trouble connecting with Babb, Woronov, or Maia on any deeper level than enjoying seeing where their stories end up. Part of the problem may be that the book is so entirely somber (an occasional joke or smile might bring some life to the characters). Perhaps this will change as the book goes on and reveals more about its world, but I think it more likely that Invisible Republic will remain a somewhat analytical and distant story about politics, manipulation and war. This is not much of a problem though if Invisible Republic remains the original, quality books that this issue shows it can be. Read Full Review
