This book is always worth reading, even when it busts out a quieter issues like this one
This issue is full of "uh-ohs" and "that's going to be a bad decision." Letting a brutal dictator go free on the honor system to not be a dick? Yeah, that won't come back to bite Nolan in his alien ass. Robot missing all the power and worship he had in an alternate dimension? Yeah, he isn't going to take an evil turn down the line. Aside from all those bad feels, this was a quieter issue, no eyeballs dangling from the sockets or any mess like that.
5 out of 5 stars
This issue is still a great example of what makes Invincible one of the best books on the shelf and should absolutely be checked out by any fans, new or old.
Invincible at its heart is a comic book about relationships with Super Heroes in the background. That’s when Invincible is at its best, and when it flips those two, well that’s when Invincible loses its way. Right now Invincible has found its way again and I can’t wait to see where we’re taken.
3 out of 5 stars
Invincible #105 is new reader friendly — to the point that long time reader’s could almost skip it. Still, I’m interested to see if Robot turns into the series’ next supervillain.
It’s nice to see these characters get a chance to work on themselves and each other without a massive crisis looming. One thing is certain, though. Knowing Robert Kirkman, this period of relative tranquility will soon come to an end. The happier and better-adjusted these characters seem now, the more likely that the coming turn will see them crash to equal lows. Enjoy the good times while they last, because there are definitely threats building on the horizon.
