Read full description of the books Invincible, Vol. 13: Growing Pains:3 Stars.
Invincible: Growing Pains was an underwhelming volume. Don't get me wrong, it was fun and I enjoyed reading it, but reading this trade after the awesomeness that was volume 12... Well, if I'm being honest it felt like a filler, a funny and entertaining read, but a filler nonetheless.
This volume collects issues #66-70 and Invincible Returns #1. So, what happens? First two issues are focused in finding the objects and weapons capable to face and destroy the Viltrumite empire. The space BFF are back and it wasn't as interesting and exciting as I was hoping. On earth however, we have Mark still struggling with his now decision of doing anything and everything against his enemies... and how maybe the consequences of those actions are not as easy to accept as he thought. The Sequids invasion is fully on (Man, I hate the Sequids, the only good thing was the ending) and there's another alien warrior ready to take over earth (useless plot line, a waste of time) and even with those two things combined, it might not be the worst that Mark has to face these days... prepare yourself for the most awkward boyfriend meets the family dinner! (I dislike Eve and I hate her family, but it was fun to see Mark dealing with so much stupidity) There's also the problem of Eve's powers and her inability to control them, although the reason might be not what I was expecting... (Damn it, Mark.)
The thing that really bothered me the most was the artwork. First two issues in this collection are drawn by Walker this time and yes, I know he was the original artist... but I feel like the story lost so much having this change in the artwork. I love Ottley's job and he does a much better work in this title in my opinion. Also, the artwork in Invincible Returns #1 is horrible. However, I was smiling so hard with that double page panel of Invincible in his classic, but new, superhero suit. I didn't think I missed it, but seeing that illustration... the feels, man. I need that panel as a poster on my wall.
What I loved the most was the change of Oliver's appearance! I'm so happy to see an older and more mature version of this character. When he was introduced to the story I loved him... but then I was a little afraid of the little psycho and his speech against humanity. However, I can't help but loving him again and his relationship with Mark and Mama Grayson.
This volume wasn't as good as I was hoping, but Invincible is always a pleasure to read. There were still laughs, unexpected revelations and an ending that promises a great next volume.
