Invincible #84 (I thought he died last week? Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Nov 05, 2011 12:15 pm

Kirkman continues to change this book from a superhero book into a ‘post-superhero’ book. Mark is realising that the traditional way he’s been operating may not actually be all the helpful, and may be causing more trouble than it’s worth. He’s moved beyond the good/evil paradigm really, and that’s why he’s teaming up with Dinosaurus, to try and save the world in different ways. It’s certainly interesting, but it is taking Mark close to becoming an outright villain. Plus it’s not all that fun, remember when this book was fun? It’s been pretty down for a while now, at least this issue had a little bit of humour with Dinosaurus’ ‘indifference makes me transform’ thing. Oh, and I still don’t give a fuck about the Robot/Monster Girl drama, it’s moving waaaay too slowly to be interesting.

While I am curious about exactly what happened between Robot/Rex and Monster Girl, I agree that it is moving painfully slow.

I thought this issue was great. I am very interested in where this is going with Dinosaurus... I do agree about Robot and Monster Girl tho'
I feel that this book has been inconsistent since the end of the Viltrumite War but how this ended really gives it a new direction.

I was ready to stop reading, but this issue was a little better and the new direction is interesting.
