Book Description

Grant Morrison's THE INVISIBLES has been hailed as an ambitious comics masterpiece, the key to Morrison's entire body of work, and the inspiration for THE MATRIX. But it's also frequently written off as incomprehensible.

Using a conversational, accessible style, Patrick Meaney (director of GRANT MORRISON: TALKING WITH GODS) opens up THE INVISIBLES through in-depth analysis that makes sense of the series's complicated ideas, fractured chronology, and delirious blend of fiction and reality. Meaney also explores how the series's fictional conspiracy theories fare in the wake of 9/11 and the War on Terror. The book includes an extensive interview with Grant Morrison and an introduction by Timothy Callahan (author of GRANT MORRISON: THE EARLY YEARS).

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential January 20, 2011
Format:Paperback
I've read The Invisibles more than a half dozen times. Though repeat readings have always furthered my understanding of the series, I've always had the nagging urge I wasn't quite getting something.

I had no idea.

Unlike most companion pieces, this book doesn't just graze the surface of themes and ideas. I'd go so far as to say this book is essential reading. It covers ideas and concepts in the series I didn't even know were there. It clarifies the Supercontext, John-A-Dreams, and reveals subtext I completely missed out on. It even made me love the third volume. Until I read this book I always felt the third volume was slightly pretentious, and an unsatisfying conclusion. Now I know otherwise.

Above all else, this was a pleasure to read. It's written in an accessible and conversational style that makes you want to read just one more chapter before going to bed. If you love The Invisibles, buy this book. Even if you don't agree with all of the interpretations, it will force you to think. Just like The Invisibles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic purchase December 28, 2011
By Janie
Format:Paperback
If you are a fan of Grant Morrison or the Invisibles it is integral that you pick this up.

It delves into nuisances that are often overlooked by a passive reader and clarifies material that have murky meanings.

Plus, as a fan of his documentary, the stills from Meaney's documentary Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods are an especially great addition to this book. Must check out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect re-read companion July 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you're going to read The Invisibles - and you really should - then you're going to want to read this book. However, I would recommend reading this only after you've finished The Invisibles at least once.
