Publisher’s Summary: The thrilling conclusion of the first arc! At the height of a mega-battle against Lux’s formidable ship, Grix manages to out-maneuver their opponent despite the Sundog’s less-than-battle-ready defenses. Will Vess and Grix ultimately get the help they need from Duni? And when faced the unsettling truth, will the public be with them . . . or against them?


Review

Grix and Vess are out of time. With the ship under siege and no help in sight, the outcome looks bleak. But with a little faith, maybe Grix and the crew will survive.

G. Willow Wilson writes a heart-pounding conclusion to Invisible Kingdom’s first story arc. Trapped on a ship in the vast expanse of space, Grix’s crew is out of options. In these final, intense moments, Wilson tests everyone’s faith, including the readers’. Moving between panels on the ship and in space, Wilson creates a constant building tension which is only relieved in the final panels.

Working within the tension of the script, Christian Ward crafts a kaleidoscope of colors in space. Each panel is more vibrant than the next, conveying an energy within the panels. Whatever lies ahead for Grix and Vess, it’s certain to be a stunning read.

Bottom Line

Invisible Kingdom #5 is a must-read issue; G. Willow Wilson and Christian Ward craft a stunning and thought-provoking conclusion to the first story arc.
