Invincible #53 Review

Written by Robert Kirkman

This is what I'd call an average issue of Invincible. If you've read Invincible before, and you should have, this isn't necessarily a bad thing, as it's always a great read and an average issue is still better than most, but, aside from the little bit with Kid Omni-Man at the end, there wasn't much happening in this issue. I still enjoyed it a lot and recommend it, but, again, it's an average Invincible issue.

I think the problem arises from the fact there's no real focus or direction to the issue. We go from relationship stuff with Atom Eve to random moving boxes out of his dorm and checking in on his friends to the generic super villain fight and then back home for a final talk with his brother. It just lacked any kind of flow and felt like a mish mash of random scenes instead of a connected story.

While all of these scenes worked well on their own - I particularly liked the fight where Invincible tells one of the villains trying to escape to get back in his cell and he promptly runs back in - none of them really stood out as important either, with the exception of the final scene.

Speaking of which, that final scene with Mark and his brother say Kid Omni-Man 'apologizing' to Mark about how he reacted to the killings from last issue and he appeared to be trying to see things from a human point of view. All of this was fine until the last panel where, as he's hugging Mark, his facial expression makes it clear that he doesn't believe a thing he just said and it looks like he's going to be turning on his brother soon. Makes me wonder if we'll see him joining up with Cid or if Invincible will have to take down his own brother or not.

Verdict - Check It. Good issue that sets up some future storylines, but just doesn't scream "Must Read" to me.
