Editorial Reviews

Review

"Excellent ... engrossing ... Morrison is a skilled word magician, seeking creativity in a cosmological dimension." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"I suddenly realized that everything that I'm trying to say in my nonfiction work, and in some of my fiction work, had been so beautifully and so imaginatively expressed in the work of Grant Morrison."--Deepak Chopra --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

Grant Morrison has been working with DC Comics for more than twenty years, beginning with his legendary runs on the revolutionary titles ANIMAL MAN and DOOM PATROL. Since then he has written numerous best-sellers — including JLA, BATMAN and New X-Men — as well as the critically acclaimed creator-owned series THE INVISIBLES, SEAGUY, THE FILTH, WE3 and JOE THE BARBARIAN. Morrison has also expanded the borders of the DC Universe in the award-winning pages of SEVEN SOLDIERS, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, FINAL CRISIS and BATMAN, INC., and he is currently reinventing the Man of Steel in the all-new ACTION COMICS.
         In his secret identity, Morrison is a “counterculture” spokesperson, a musician, an award-winning playwright and a chaos magician. He is also the author of the New York Times best-seller Supergods, a groundbreaking psycho-historic mapping of the superhero as a cultural organism. He divides his time between his homes in Los Angeles and Scotland.

This is not a review for the story itself, but rather on the collection. The Invisibles is a fantastic comic and one of Grant Morrison's most insane works.

However, like other hardcover collections that DC has been putting out, this hardcover has a glued binding. With any glued binding, problems like not being able to comfortably lay the book flat and having the insides of pages being eaten up by the binding will occur. After many repeated readings (unless you take super-care of your books) pages will start to fall out. This is to be expected with any book that has glued binding. Is it still worth purchasing this volume? Yes. The price is right, the page quality is very good, and I like the texture they used on the dustcover. Go read this amazing story, and as long as you take care of the book it will last a very long time.

This is Grant Morrison with the handcuffs off, unshackled from the Superhero chaingang. Like Alan Moore, Warren Ellis and Neil Gaiman, Morrison never received a University education; like his fellow Brit writers, he possesses an imaginative genius that puts most serious novelists to shame. After penning groundbreaking stories for DC like Arkham Asylum (a psycho-drama with distinct elements of Gothic Horror and painted art that was exquisitely rendered by Dave McKean), Morrison soon became recognized as one of the most exciting of comics innovators, unafraid of scaring readers off with his renowned strangeness on runs of Animal Man and Doom Patrol.

When Vertigo emerged in the wake of The Sandman's stunning success, offering mature-reader, creator-owned titles, Morrison was an obvious fit, happy to create his own series, which would explore his many fascinations. It was clear from the start that The Invisibles would be something revolutionary. Its' anti-heroes were anarchist-terrorists, waging a guerrilla war against forces of darkness and order, agents of another universe that sought to infect the world with a virus of conformity and submission. They existed unseen and unnoticed by most of the population, but agents of order were everywhere in the government, the churches, the schools. Surgically altered, their eyes and genitals removed by their masters -- Imposing black-armored nightmares, appearing to be half-insect, half-demon, in particular 'The Grand Archon - The King-Of-All-Tears'.

Against the forces of Order and Conformity stood The Invisibles, agents of Chaos, Imagination and Freedom. King Mob was the cool, charismatic leader at the beginning of the story, and he was charged with initiating a new recruit into the Mysteries of the Invisible College.

The Invisibles was one of those comics that inspired a generation of comic readers, being some of the best stories from the 90's, VERTIGO comics definitely was the HBO for comics during that era, and The Invisibles was the story that pushed all limits of reality. I already owned the original trade paperback volumes, but this volume being a larger size, better paper quality, hard cover and collecting more issues (1-12 plus a short story) is a great buy for lovers of comics like Preacher Book One by Garth Ennis, The Manhattan Projects, Vol. 1: Science Bad by Jonathan Hickman and even the The Matrix [HD] (Which they used The Invisibles to write their script).

The Invisibles should be read by comic book enthusiasts and non comic book readers also.

Take a trip down the rabbit hole and experience the first 12 issues ( Plus More! ) of Grant Morrison's legendary "The Invisible's" comic. "Psychedelic", "philosophical", and "poetic" are just a few words I would use to describe this action-packed series. Readers who are looking for something more traditional might want to look elsewhere but anyone who's in for a little experimental comic reading may reach out and find something that's very special to them.
The book is larger than the standard, modern comic book size that it was originally released in allowing for a great look at the art. The binding seems acceptable to me as well, but perhaps someone else can chime in with specifics. I definitely recommend taking the dive and purchasing this book. See you on the other side.

The Invisible s book one is fantastic. Book 2 Mr. Morrison may have been on some different s**t. I wasn't such a huge fan. I'm gonna continue reading though. I love weird whacked out comics. Keep going man.

Grant Morrison broke the mold, and this is only the beginning. Huge fan, recommend to anybody who enjoys the idea, or believes the world has a lot more going on, under the skin.
