"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
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.

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