I’ll continue the streak and write another comic book post this week. Comictober!
The Invisibles is about a small group of rebels fighting liberate humanity from the domination and psychic oppression imposed upon us by the interdemsional alien gods called the Archons of Outer Church. Multiple universes, extra dimensions, magic, conspiracy theory, alien abduction, violence, time travel, memes, consciousness-expansion… all of that stuff is here in The Invisibles, and much more! The world behind the world, the history behind the history.
Sounds crazy? Probably. The Invisibles isn’t for everyone, that’s for sure… but I love it. It is probably one of my favorite stories, let alone comics.
The Invisibles was created and written by Grant Morrison, who is well known for throwing some pretty strange stories and concepts out there. Morrison is very hit or miss for me. I love a whole lot of his work, and don’t like some of his work at all. But The Invisibles is, in my opinion, among his very best. The artwork is also good, overall, and a number of different artists contributed their talents to the project (click here to see who).
I read first this a long time ago but have been revisiting it again lately. Its been on my mind lately too, especially this week. Again, not necessarily a horror comic (although there is plenty of horror there), but it seems to somehow suit the Halloween season.
