Start your review of Invincible, Vol. 21: Modern Family
Mark and Eve come up with a name for their baby girl (Mark is a great dad). They move away from Earth to be a family while Nolan continues ruling over the Viltrumites. Robot continues his “peaceful” occupation of earth. Oliver has a seriously weird alien girlfriend that looks like a cockroach. All is well so far I guess lol. Another good volume!

The time between Invincible trades is almost impossible accept. This book has remained so consistently excellent, in both the quality of script and the artwork, that every volume is a guaranteed good time, a promise that other comics struggle to make, especially after the 20th(!!!) volume mark. The world of Invincible is always evolving, unafraid of change and progress, it becomes addicting for the same reasons that the Song of Ice and Fire books are so popular. Death is usually permanent, and ...more

This wasn't super eventful but really strong character growth.

We get to see Mark as a daddy. It's fucking adorable. Like I was smiling the entire time (maybe because we're trying to have a kid but this was super sweet) and loved that he finally told Eve what happened to him. (Spoilers) Rape is no joke and this book doesn't just gloss over it. It can happen to anyone, any gender, and what happened was screwed up. Mark doesn't just "get over it" he has to deal with it. Even gets that, and they

Kirkman and Ottley still rock as Invincible,Atom Eve and Terra leaves Earth plus a battle royale between Battle Beast and Thragg!

Oftentimes it’s the “change of pace” volumes that get hated on so I’m going to show this one some 5-star love instead.

Invincible is the best book out there. I wish I could rate this higher. It's off the scale good.

Things move forward in the invincible universe after the last volumes dynamic shift in the status quo. And while Mark tries to deal with it, the secondary story is an absolutely epic battle that goes on for multiple issues between the exiled Viltrumite leader and Battle Beast.

A great story with alot of personal moments in this one. From Marks decision to leave home with his family, to his confession to Eve, to Battle Beast's lover finally breaking down, its amazing to see Kirkman weave his way

A few pages of the biggest fight in the series scattered through a lot of home/baby drama? It's so weird it feels like it must be an artistic choice, but I don't see what purpose it serves.

Oh this series. Another excellent installment. Of course, it kind of goes without saying that volume 21 isn't the best jumping on point for new readers, but it does serve as another reminder for people who are interested to go back to the beginning and follow the whole series. It's a rare book that has had a consistent creative team for all these years, meaning a consistent thinking behind these characters.

These characters have all evolved so much since the beginning. And they keep tackling the

Barely even a superhero book anymore - but in reality, you wouldn't get decades of essentially the same slugfests, would you? A point openly addressed in one particularly meta scene here. Instead, the travails of parenting - particularly on an alien world - and the ethics of a covert tyranny that's also something close to utopia. I'm glad there are still other comics playing out variations on the endlessly fascinating superhero theme, but also love the path this one is forging instead.

Finally had time to start and finish a book I own since I've completed a good amount of public library books of late. This title is still fresh, excellent, and introduces lots of exciting, interesting twists not found in superhero titles by the Big Two.

For some reason, I took a massive break while reading this series, and this issue has been hanging out on my nightstand for literally months. But the spouse encouraged me to jump back in, and I'm excited to crank through to the ending now.

Mark is still trying to make the world fit into his narrative of black and white (right and wrong), but it's not working out since Robot's epic takeover. Because he has a family to think of now, he decides the better part of valor is to make a new start on a

"Anyhow...I think "love" is learning all the terrible things about a person close to you and learning to look past them so you can see clearly the person you liked in the first place."
This slowed the pace a bit, it fills like it has had a breather before the final chapter kicks in, I hope that is the case and there is a big 20 or so issue final arc. I no longer feel any real 'dread' in this comic, most people come back or survive, but its OK, this volume was a low point for me. The artist was

Our fave couple heads to space to escape the troubles of Earth. Alas, Thragg is in space and he’s definitely causing trouble. Meanwhile, Earth seems to be doing well with Rex in control, but does this make his methods ok? What will everyone do about it? Read to find out! Honestly, love the direction this is heading. Eager to continue into the new year.

4.5 stars for this volume in which Mark and Eve decide to relocate their new family to Allen the Alien's planet, while things on Earth are being completely controlled by Rex / Robot. Meanwhile Battle Beast and Thragg have the most epic showdown and battle to the death! I also loved the nod to Star Trek as Mark and Oliver investigate the aftermath of that battle to see if Thragg survived.

Eve and Mark become immigrants to the planet Talescria. There they have to raise their baby daughter while trying to get accustomed to the alien way of life. Interesting change in pace with Battle Beast’s and Thragg’s battle interspersing to create contrast.

An entertaining overlap of Mark’s time as a father and an epic fist fight between Thragg and Battle Beast. Too bad there were no power up sequences.

Climbing from the wreckage of Robot's takeover in the previous volume the world recovers and moves on. But some, like Invincible, know that this will not end well and there are two options, fight or walk away.(view spoiler) Meanwhile, the galactic government try to keep Thragg from rebuilding his army.
