Start reading The Invisibles Vol. 5: Counting to None on your Kindle in under a minute. I'm starting to feel that The Invisibles has become the literary equivalent of Grant Morrison staring at his reflection and touching himself.

Start reading The Invisibles Vol. I realised with the last volume that I don't care about the characters or their story - both of which are paper thin, which is why I don't care - and this volume hasn't changed my opinion otherwise. So besides a bull-headed determination to finish the series, what's keeping me going?

Counting to None" continues the "The Invisibles" as not just a work of fiction, but an experience you'll never have anywhere else. This paperback also includes the story "And We're All Policemen" from Vertigo's "Winter's Edge" (1998) which sort of takes King Mob out of the context of Invisibles and takes place chronologically after the entire series. What I really like about The Invisibles is how much time Morrison gives to the character arcs amid all the crazy apocalyptic "mad" ideas. Ragged Robin's back story comes out, King Mob starts to question the violence of his actions, and Boy goes through a mental and emotional wringer of brainwashing and.

The Invisibles is a comic book series that was published by the Vertigo imprint of DC Comics from 1994 to 2000. It was created and scripted by Scottish writer Grant Morrison, and drawn by various artists throughout its publication.

Counting to None is fairly neatly divided into three sections - an untitled arc which finally explains Robin's mysterious past; "Sensitive Criminals," in which we meet an Invisibles cell from 1924; and "American Death Camp," in which the Invisibles are betrayed by Boy, who steals the Hand of Fate, a mystical superweapon of great power. But for readers who aren't accustomed to Morrison's esoteric style - and even for those of us who've read nearly everything he's ever written - Counting to None marks the volume at which the series begins to get very strange indeed.

I just finished reading the entire 7 volume series and I'm not entirely sure if I like it or not. The Invisibles raises many fascinating issues and makes us question our beliefs and perceptions of reality. I like that part. I've spent a lifetime studying topics such as religion, mythology, and mysticism; everything from new age to gnosticism to kabbalah to buddhism to conspiracy theories, et al. This series definitely addresses my interests.

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.

Picked up both Book One & Book Two, both are very good quality. The size is a bit bigger than the comic format and the paper is great, the art and colors look wonderful. If you have not read the Invisibles, I highly recommend the series, I think it is Grant Morrison's best work to date. The plot is much too intricate to describe in detail here, suffice to say it is a psychedelically fueled time traveling psychically powered occult alien Cthulian conspiracy story with humor and action thrown in for good measure. If that sounds like your cup of tea, by all means check it out.

This is the second collcetion of the Invisibles - and it helps to have read the first a couple of times, as the story and dimensions twist and turn even more in this second outing of Jack Frost, King Mob and the rest of the crew.

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)

A classic!

I have become a big fan of Grant Morrison over the last 2 years and have been catching up on a lot of his older work. I would consider Morrison to be in my top 2 favorite comic book writers (the other one is Alan Moore). The Invisibles is probably the most complex work I have read by Morrison. I am a big fan of the central story that revolves around Jack Frost. It reminds me A LOT of the original Matrix film. Since The Invisibles was released about 5 years before The Matrix, I can't help but think the Wachowski Brothers lifted some of the ideas from this book for their movie. And this book is full of ideas. It is great to read Grant Morrison books and see that his imagination is full of so many "out there" ideas. Trying to explain this story here would be almost impossible. But I will explain why I gave the book a 4 out of 5 instead of a 5 out of 5. It is simply because there are certain scenes that are put in this book that I don't know that I fully understand. Like the scene with the psychedelic god of John Lennon. What was up with this scene? I hope it is better explained in a later book because I found this part interesting but confusing. And that is how I felt about other parts in the book too...interesting but confusing. If you can handle that, this book is worth checking out.

Once in a while you pick up and read a graphic novel series that absolutely changes your life. This is one of them. Along with other graphic novels like Watchmen, Sandman and V for Vendetta, this series of 7 graphic novels chronicles the adventures of a group (or cabal) of mystick modern-day sorcerers. It is a journey into modern-day occult practices, anarchy, time-travel, sado-masochism, deviant sexuality, transgenderism, anti-capitalism, anti-monotheism, ancient religions, alien abductions, magical-hermetic praxis, LSD and protoplasmic-alien horrors from the beyond. I promise you its unlike anything you've ever read before. I wont belabor this review other than pick it up at your local comic book shop and if you like it, invest in buying all the collected graphic novels. Word of warning: this is not for juveniles or children. This is very much an adult comic book.

I actually chose this for a school project and was unsure after I first read it whether I liked it or not. After being away from it for a few days, I wanted more and could not stop thinking about the characters, etc. It definitely requires a somewhat deeper level of knowledge to understand the complexities of the stories, or at least the motivation to look something up if you don't understand the reference, but it's totally worth it.
It's like if terrance mckenna wrote a 70s spy fiction. Very weird in a good way. The characters and villians are demented and occult, so if you're into that you should go mad on this gem.
