After a couple of fairly ‘meh’ issues of Invincible, this one gets things back on track, and manages to both be pretty damn funny, but also deathly serious and move the big story of the series on a lot. The stuff with Omni-Man and Debbie constantly fucking was very funny, and provided a great through line for the more serious stuff, which is Allen The Alien’s decision to attack the Earth with the Scourge Virus in order to kill all the Viltrumites (and the humans too!). It’s weird to see Allen act like this, but it’s great that the character has grown from being a cool goofy visual, to someone with real power and hard decisions to make. His fight with Omni-Man next month is going to be crazy. I also liked the return of Oliver, and his discovery that Earth really is pretty backwards. I hope this doesn’t mean he’s going to turn on Earth, but it’s a possibility, he’s more alien than we know. It’s always great to have Cory Walker come back and do an issue or two, he co-created the book, and we shouldn’t forget that, no matter how good Ottley is, and I think that Walker is the perfect fit for these issues set in space as he draws really cool aliens.

I was so pissed when I reached the end of this book simply because I don't want to wait three weeks!

Hopefully Kirkman & crew can stick to their word on shipping again.

I am pretty sure I turned the page in hopes of there being more...
