Invincible #105 starts out in the middle of the action. Rex, manning the control center for the Guardians of the Globe orbiting space base, is shouting into his headset, commanding drones. While down on Earth, Invincible is casually chatting on the phone while stopping a bank robbery. All the while, on the Moon, Thragg is sentenced to exile.
Kirkman’s writing in this particular issue is great, flows well, and is easy to understand, even without having read previous issues. Dealing with the issues of lost power and adjusting to change, the focus of this issue is more on the characters trying to deal with their fears and feelings of being overwhelmed.
The art in Invincible is awesome, as always, and is perfect for what Invincible is as a comic. Crisp and colorful, the art helps drive home the superhero feel even though the story is much more character focused over action.
Invincible #105 is a great comic, but I wouldn’t recommend it without also recommending every other issue, too. Now that recommendation isn’t because you wouldn’t be able to follow the plot, but because you should just read the rest of the series. The characters are so good it is worth going back and catching up. You won’t regret it.
