My comic collection is above 4000, with hundreds & hundreds of titles, and Invincible is easily in my top 10. Tropes are subverted beautifully, characters are well-defined with clear motivations & relatability, the plots are familiar yet totally fresh, and the art is stylish, clean, and beautiful.
DC & Marvel's superheroes are not easy for new readers to sink their teeth into due to decades upon decades of convoluted & contradictory continuity & characterization. Invincible doesn't have that problem. The closest the Big 2 have gotten to the new & exciting feeling inside Invincible's pages was the first few years of Marvel's Ultimate Comics line.
If you like to have fun while escaping into a story, you won't be disappointed with Invincible.
I went ahead and ordered even though some copies had misprinting, I knew that it would only be a handful of copies with that problem, which could make those misprint versions worth more coincidentally. Although I did sleep easier once I had confirmed on Twitter with the creator/writer Robert Kirkman that the misprint issue had been fixed.
I bought all 3 compendiums. I read them over the course of 3 months and think about them often. Ryan Ottley is incredibly talented as the artist here. You will wonder how he was able to keep this ridiculous schedule for so long and honestly get better and better.
One of my favorite series ever.

If anyone is coming across this problem just a heads up, with amazon prime you can use comixology for free and you can borrow the proper issues that are misprinted. I ended up doing this and was able to finish reading the rest of it.
I don’t want this review to reflect on how the book is because it is actually incredibly good. Just unfortunate that there is a misprint that can hinder some people from buying it
Invincible is a love letter to anyone read Superhero comics growing up and and the genre itself. What could easily have been considered hackey with it’s references, homages, and commentary remained fresh and innovative all the way to the end.
The collection itself is decently hefty, the art loses little to no quality, and ultimately a great deal for those looking to branch out into Image Comics, or those who’d like to collect the run in a more readable way than the individual issues.

As for the product itself, this is excellent Omnibus/ compendium which contains the whole run /story of Invincible. I watched the show on Prime, and really liked it so bought the source material.
The comic itself is excellent, good story, good characters and excellent artwork. As a bonus this comic has a complete story from beginning to end.
Also unlike modern comics ( which are mostly trash) this comic has excellent artwork, puts story and characters first. Does not beat you over the head with poorly written modern political messaging or preachiness. Just has good fun storytelling.
Very good comic series, would recommend to anyone who likes superhero comics.
It felt a little disjointed at the very start but it soon had a very nice flow
The actual story is great and I'm really looking forward to getting the next two volumes and reading this to it's conclusion.
On a practical note although I am quite old school in that I do like to read comics in physical format for something like this I think it would be very unwieldy, and this particular edition is eminently more readable on a kindle app/device (in my case an Ipad.)
I've got some Batman Omnibuses and they are simply too heavy to read easily - especially in bed!
