One of Grant Morrison’s most controversial, trippiest and abstract comic book titles, trying to summarize the plot of The Invisibles is a losing proposition. Morrison claims much of the story came to him after a metaphysical experience (he got suuuuper high) in Kathmandu. This series combines all of Morrison’s favorite tropes: magic, psychedelic drugs, age-old conspiracies, and his signature weirdness.
The story begins with Dane McGowan, a hoodlum living in Liverpool England. Dane’s contempt for authority attracts the attention of two sides of a magical conflict. First, a group of government officials throw him in jail and plan to drain him of his free will. This is until he is rescued by the Invisibles, a group of magic anarchists fighting for unlimited freedom. The first volume of the series has Dane slowly becoming more involved with his saviors.
Follow the adventures of the Invisibles, a secret organization out to battle against physical and psychic oppression brought upon humanity by the interdimensional alien gods of the Archons of Outer Church!
