To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
First of all, I do not understand why there are random reviews from the other "Ultimate Collections" here and why it is listed as being "5 in a 12 book series" when it's pretty clear it is #12 in a 12 book series.
Excellent series from start to finish and very sorry to know that it is done... forever. It is certainly understandable but sad, nonetheless. As always, the writing and art is amazing and I love picking out details on subsequent readings that I missed the first time around.
Robert Kirkman, you've done it again. Invincible Vol. 12 just blew my mind, so I felt compelled to write this review literally minutes after finishing this volume, while the data's still fresh. Honestly, I can't praise this series enough! This recent volume (collecting the Invincible War and the Conquest storyarcs) is one of he best examples of the superhero genre since Spider-man first swung onto the pages of Amazing Fantasy. No other title combines teenaged angst and real-world responsibility with superheroics and family as well as Invincible, and probably never will. So how do I summarize what transpires in this TP without giving too much away? Easy. ACTION. All out bloody superhero ACTION.
In a nutshell, without giving away too many spoilers, Angstrom Levy, Invincible's Lex Luthor-like archvillain has transported evil alternate versions of our hero to our earth to jump-start the Apocalypse. Basically the entire Image universe has to rally around Invincible to stave off the threat, resulting in some pretty horrific carnage. As if that's not enough, CONQUEST comes calling. Who?? Nope, I'm not going to give away too much on that one either, except to say that the last couple of issues in this collection features the goriest, most intense superhero fight EVER! How Kirkman's ever gonna top this one, I wouldn't know...
Invincible Vol.12: Still Standing collects issues 60-65 of the phenomenal series and should not be missed by any comic book fan!
Oh, and before I forget, Ryan Ottley, you are a GOD among pencillers.
I'm kind of sad that the Invincible comic is over, but I thought the ending was very appropriate. My main complaint would be that after the resolution of the conflict with Thragg, the rest of the book felt rushed. I understand that the loose ends needed to be tied up, but I wouldn't mind seeing things like the Robot War properly fleshed out.
Perfect ending to such a great comic that's inspired me so much. Had so much fun with this series and will never forget it. I love how Mark(kirkman) finally takes the step to once and for all end the threat to his people, friends, and family without any guilt or hesitation. The series tied up well and satisfyingly. I couldnt ask for a more respectful ending for us fans. Thank you mr. Kirkman.
I have enjoyed Invinvible during all these years (more than 10 since I read the fist one!). Although is sad to know that this is the end, at the same time is very satisfying to see how well done is the closing of the story. Congratulations to the Writer and the Penciller. And thank you. 100% recommended!
Awesome and satisfying conclusion to the Invincible series. Kirkman ties up as many if not all loose ends, and Ottley's art is still solid. In my opinion, Invincible probably has been the most consistently entertaining comic series that I've ever read. It's been better than most mainstream books and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
