This is BEYOND disappointing. I had a slight feeling this would happen with the title of the next arc "End of all Thing" but then I thought no there's no way he's ending it, He'll always keep writing it till #300 and beyond! But an end at #144 issues? I am shocked and HORRIFIED!

I was honestly shocked when I saw this news... My only wish is that I can see Wolf-Man again before it's too late... :(

Wow yeah, that's definitely shocking, end of an era. Was hoping Kirkman and Ottley would keep this going for at least 200 issues. It always felt like Kirkman could write Invincible and Walking Dead in his sleep (in a good way), in some ways it feels like Invincible is still getting started, odd as that may seem. It still sells well too (around 12,000 copies an issue direct market), much better than most non-Marvel/DC comics.

For me Invincible is easily the best work of everyone involved, and I still haven't seen a space shark yet. At least if it's ending here they get to go out on a 12 issue epic, and it's their choice to end the book rather than being forced to/cancelled.

As much as I would love to see the comic return, what I meant was I hope we see the character appear one more time in Invincible... Such as a final issue cameo...

One thing I notice, while 144 seems unusual to end on, this would mean Invincible fits exactly into 12 Ultimate Collections. I'm guessing that's intentional. If there's any justice, these will sell better than Killing Joke and Watchmen some day.

Also, all I had seen was Ottley's tweet saying he had 12 issues left. Just saw this Kirkman post about the end of Invincible.

Yeah, I'm feeling some bittersweet/nostalgia/sadness type stuff myself too. Everything comes and goes. *getting deep in here*

On a positive note, at least we've got another year+ of Invincible to enjoy, so it's not gone just yet.

Obviously, it would make no financial sense, but I'd be much more okay with TWD ending than Invincible... this is the darkest day in comics that I can remember.
