    An OK ending to cosmic Amazon and the same sex love story between a nun with 4 sexes and a battle worn, spaceship captain. Everything got wrapped up too quickly and neatly without many answers for this to be great. Christian Ward's colors are amazing although some of the pencil work looks sketchy at times. The colors really go give this space opera a unique and otherworldly feel.

    You know that line in The Schuyler Sisters, "You want a revolution, I want a revelation"? That's what this final volume of Invisible Kingdom is all about. As all the plot threads from the last 10 issues converge, Vess finds herself dealing with the fact that her faith might have been misplaced, while Grix tries to save an entire solar system from a biological Death Star.

That's what this final volume of Invisible Kingdom is all about. As all the plot threads from the last 10 issues converge, Vess finds herself dealing with the fact that her faith might have been misplaced, while Grix tries to save an entire solar system from a biological Death Star. Chuck in a love story, some last minute heroics from unexpected parties, and some truly cutting dialogue, and this final volume really does have it all. I thought fifteen issues was a bit short for the story Invisible Kingdom set out to tell, but G. Willow Wilson manages to wrap everything up fairly cleanly in the end. I'd have liked maybe one more issue so we could deal with the aftermath a little more, but it's a cinematic ending that covers all the bases, and you can infer what's going to happen next even if it's not spelled out on the page. Christian Ward's artwork remains top notch as well. His spacescapes are absolutely gorgeous, but he also has very good comic timing that helps some of the dialogue land even better than it would otherwise. There's at least one full page spread that I'd hang on my wall if I could. Invisible Kingdom is a book that will make you think long after you've closed its pages. It's not just the thinly veiled Amazon/Church analogies either - Wilson's script deals with bigger issues as well, like blind faith, love, dedication to a cause, and when to stop and make a stand. And it looks wonderful while it does it. I'm glad they managed to see this story through to its ending, even if it wasn't in the way it was originally intended.

    A fitting end to the tale of a lesbian space-nun and a grizzled star captain taking on cosmic Amazon. As ever, Christian Ward's art is absolutely perfect for the tone of this story. My one gripe is that this installment feels very rushed and the revolutionary plot never really takes hold. But then, when do plots about leading a revolution ever actually feel organic or earned? Wilson narrows the focus here to just Grix and Vess which helps things along--the colorful (literally) side-characters ar A fitting end to the tale of a lesbian space-nun and a grizzled star captain taking on cosmic Amazon.

Wilson narrows the focus here to just Grix and Vess which helps things along--the colorful (literally) side-characters are fun but forgettable, so I don't mind them getting less screen time. On the whole, it was an enjoyable space opera with a tinge of philosophy and some biting social commentary.

    Great series. It's always hard to find pure purpose when too much power is at stake. Lovely artwork in this one as well. Great series. It's always hard to find pure purpose when too much power is at stake. Lovely artwork in this one as well.

    I felt the end was a bit rushed... while everyone SAYS 3 trades (well, 15 comics, even if the last one went straight to trade) was the plan, the big bad guys here at the end didn't really have time to feel big and bad... and Vess buying into what they were selling, then just as quickly being disenchanted, seemed far to fast. I think the overall story would have been better served with another volume, but overall the story is good, anytime you can tell the tale of Amazon teaming up with the Chris I felt the end was a bit rushed... while everyone SAYS 3 trades (well, 15 comics, even if the last one went straight to trade) was the plan, the big bad guys here at the end didn't really have time to feel big and bad... and Vess buying into what they were selling, then just as quickly being disenchanted, seemed far to fast.

    Disappointing after the solid storytelling in volumes 1 and 2. Same lovely art with incredible colors, same characters, same style, but it felt rushed and not as deep as I would have liked. The relationship between Vess and Grix is very suddenly not part of the story, and the new group of rogue monastics turns out to be less complex and interesting than I had anticipated. Even the role of the giant evil corporation is deflated here. The best thing is that Vess is forced to examine her religious Disappointing after the solid storytelling in volumes 1 and 2.

The best thing is that Vess is forced to examine her religious convictions yet again, which is not a common feature in science fiction (or any fiction).

    Our scrappy crew goes to the Point of No Return in order to escape the threat of the Lux mega-corporation, and finds a planet-sized ship headed by the Siblings of Rebirth who want to bring the Renunciation back to the path. Unfortunately, the Siblings of Rebirth don’t care how many innocents are destroyed in their revolution. So now Captain Grix will do what she can to stop them, and Vess must make a choice between her faith in the Renunciation or love.

Vess and Grix get their happy ending, but it feels like Mother Proxima was ousted a little too easily and the Lux corruption storyline resolves just a little too nicely. But overall, I still really enjoyed it and the art, once again, was AMAZING.

    This volume of Invisible Kingdom contains issues #11-15. I just have to say that I really enjoyed this series and am really sorry to see it end. I wish we had more time in this world with these characters. Unfortunately this final volume, for me, was the weakest. This is not to say that I didn't thoroughly enjoy it. I just felt like ending was rushed and wrapped a bit too neatly for my liking. This volume of Invisible Kingdom contains issues #11-15.

    The ending leaves so much room for a later series, that I can only hope someone comes along and continues this story. It feels very much like a paragraph break rather than a Fin. With that being said, I enjoyed every moment and am only sad that this is the end of the series for now. I will come back as soon as I hear a whisper of more. Especially if Wilson is writing it!

    I re-read volumes 1 & 2 yesterday to get ready to read this today. I feel like two volumes of story happened in this book. Part of me wishes that it HAD been two books, so I’d have more of the art to linger over. 5 stars? Yes, but I’ll admit to bias in this case.

    Brilliant conclusion to one of finest, most intelligent graphic series I’ve ever read. It’s a science fiction tale of enormous depth, taking on religion, faith, corruption, commerce, and truth.

    A good ending to the series! Beautiful art, and I'm a bit bummed the series is over now. The world-building is so interesting! A good ending to the series! Beautiful art, and I'm a bit bummed the series is over now. The world-building is so interesting!

    A satisfying ending to the saga, though it feels a bit rushed in places. I’m glad the creators were able to end things on their own terms, pandemic be damned.
