Review: Invincible #120
Tired of Marvel disrespecting cosmic and talking down to cosmic fans? Tired of the terrible writing and art in the books Marvel is calling “cosmic” these days? I’ve got a simple answer for you. Invincible.
This book just keeps re-inventing itself. And I mean that in a good way. The characters change, grow, and mature just as they would in real life. They are faced with situations every day – both fantastic and mundane – but nevertheless the story is written in such a way as to keep the reader riveted if only because the characters are so appealing.
Sadly, a great warrior and fan favorite character is lost in this issue. I will miss this character. But it sets things up nicely for Mark to face the biggest and baddest of the the big bads – King Thragg – in future issues. Especially since King Thragg is building an army of Viltrumite hybrids. I think the Invinciverse is going to be in for a rough ride in the near future.
Ottley’s distinctive artistic style is the perfect complement to Kirkman’s outstanding writing. This book would simply not read the same if not for this team-up of creators, and I hope this team stays together for the next 100 issues of this fine book.
If you’re a cosmic fan, rush out and buy this book. Reward great quality with high sales.
