My only reservation is that the series got a little hard to follow towards the end. So many little subplots going on in the past, present, and future, in hyperdimensions, in alternate realities/universes, in dreams, in hallucinations; characters changing allegiances or turning out to be other than what they appeared to be; hidden agendas.
Yikes, I got confused and more unsettled than a boy scout lost on Brokeback Mountain. I didn't know what was real and what wasn't, anymore. And I suppose that was Morrison's intent all along. The bastard! If Grant Morrsion is as twisted as his story lines, he can swallow a nail and poop out a cork screw.
Like Neil Gaiman, his work demands several rereadings with new insights emerging each time. I'm probably going to buy that 364 page commentary by Patrick Meaney before the next time I wade thru this material. But wade I must, because I sense there's a lot of "meaningful stuff" that slipped by me the first time.
However if your looking for a graphic novel that makes you think about the world around you, sucks you in to it's reality and makes you question your reality this is the one for you. but like i said, to truly understand it start with volume one.
this series is the pinnacle of Grant Morrisons' psychedelic phase before he was big in DC so if you've been reading his more recent stuff don't expect super hero antics. It's not as disturbing as the Filth but it has it's moments so if you can't stomach a little violence and some hard hitting social commentary it's not for you. With that said I think this is a must have for any serious adult graphic novel fans collection.
As you can judge from the cover - there is a darker undertone in this volume, death in his various incarnations plays a more central role as we are given a broader glimpse into the world of the Invisibles.
Does contain some strong passages, as this is not a mainstream comic book with caped heroes - but a dark tale in the spirit of Alan Moore (Watchmen and V for Vendetta)
