I really can't imagine how Kirkman is going to tie up this  book in one issue. There is so much to "wrap up" and I guess maybe I'm just pissed that its ending.....

Me too, I was hoping that this book was going to go for many more issues.

ME TOO.  WHich cover are you getting?

I wanted both, got the last copy of each from my LCS!

Having just finished reading it, I'm going to need to read it again, I think it was really good actually, I'm just in some sort of denial, and of course there are a few cliffhangers within the last issue that give me some hope for a comeback at some point?!

Invincible is the best comic out there and I'm sure going to miss it.

He'll definitely revisit it at some point. The things that were set up in this last issue combined with the movie makes it a definite.

I've love to hear what you guys thought about the issue. When I read it a few weeks back, I had to take a pause at my desk before reading it again. I feel it was a pretty fantastic way to end the series.

Was perfect. Tied up a lot of loose ends, dropped a few new threads, packed an emotional wallop. Beautiful art. Just awesome man, awesome

I loved it. Very skillfully crafted with jumps in time and it was FUNNY again. You can tell a lot of time was spent on this -script because it just hit all the things that made the series so great & fresh in its early years. This book has been in my pull for years and I'm bummed to see it end, but I would rather it end than meander. Ryan Ottley is one of my favorite artists (and, yes, I know Cory Walker drew the last half of the issue 🙂). I will pick up most anything he draws. Thanks, Invincible!

Anybody have an idea of print run for the two covers of #144?

The B cover sold out pretty quickly and is going for a premium online

I will wait for the hype to die down and buy a few. I think this book was printed more then we suspect.

I’m a little late to the party but just read 144.  So so good. Really enjoyed how Robert wrapped everything up. I’m gonna miss this book.

It was awesome!  Sad to see it go, but I think they'll revisit the Invinciverse in comics somewhere down the line.

Ottley will probably get tired of working for the big 2 after doing it on his own for almost 15 years.

I was really disappointed by the final issues. 

When the last issue came out, the beginning felt so formulaic.  

As it moved on, it felt like a re-tread of the series with his kid. 

But by the time the issue ended, I was truly impressed.  A respectable ending for a great book.

Back issues sales are really moving on this book I guess movie hype is pushing them, but
it is a great book. Those first about 20 issues were fantastic.

I'm surprised to hear that. 

Is it the standard key issues in the 1st 20 that are pulling cash?  Thought the Anissa 1st might hold some value.

I haven't looked specifically lately, but the normal issues always do well. 1-12 then hit and miss to around 20. 
1, 10-12 always do well.
