Product Description

Product Description

Grant Morrison's THE INVISIBLES has been hailed as an ambitious comics masterpiece, the key to Morrison's entire body of work, and the inspiration for THE MATRIX. But it's also frequently written off as incomprehensible.

Using a conversational, accessible style, Patrick Meaney (director of GRANT MORRISON: TALKING WITH GODS) opens up THE INVISIBLES through in-depth analysis that makes sense of the series's complicated ideas, fractured chronology, and delirious blend of fiction and reality. Meaney also explores how the series's fictional conspiracy theories fare in the wake of 9/11 and the War on Terror. The book includes an extensive interview with Grant Morrison and an introduction by Timothy Callahan (author of GRANT MORRISON: THE EARLY YEARS).

From Sequart Research & Literacy Organization.

2.0 out of 5 stars Glad Tidings 24 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Guess what? "Contact with Barbelith is a reminder that none of us is really alone, that there is a cosmic essence of love out there, tying us all together." Sorry, but I just had to blurt it out. That's got to be just about the best news ever, hasn't it?
But what's this? "Looking at the red fiction tank in the future year of 2005 makes me a bit sad. I wish that we had Sky and could float around in this crazy environment, like Robin does." Never mind that! There's a cosmic essence etc., tying us blah, blah, blah.
Seriously though, why bother with 'Anarchy For The Masses: The Disinformation Guide To The Invisibles' anymore now that we have this offering which follows the same issue-by-issue format but without it's predecessors profusion of often obscure, actual information about the Invisibles' text and it's esteemed creators?

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential 21 Jan 2011
By Brendan Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've read The Invisibles more than a half dozen times. Though repeat readings have always furthered my understanding of the series, I've always had the nagging urge I wasn't quite getting something.

I had no idea.

Unlike most companion pieces, this book doesn't just graze the surface of themes and ideas. I'd go so far as to say this book is essential reading. It covers ideas and concepts in the series I didn't even know were there. It clarifies the Supercontext, John-A-Dreams, and reveals subtext I completely missed out on. It even made me love the third volume. Until I read this book I always felt the third volume was slightly pretentious, and an unsatisfying conclusion. Now I know otherwise.

Above all else, this was a pleasure to read. It's written in an accessible and conversational style that makes you want to read just one more chapter before going to bed. If you love The Invisibles, buy this book. Even if you don't agree with all of the interpretations, it will force you to think. Just like The Invisibles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic purchase 28 Dec 2011
By Janie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you are a fan of Grant Morrison or the Invisibles it is integral that you pick this up.

It delves into nuisances that are often overlooked by a passive reader and clarifies material that have murky meanings.

Plus, as a fan of his documentary, the stills from Meaney's documentary Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods are an especially great addition to this book. Must check out!

If you're going to read The Invisibles - and you really should - then you're going to want to read this book. However, I would recommend reading this only after you've finished The Invisibles at least once.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Genius of Grant Morrison 9 Jun 2013
By Matthew - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is an indispensable guide too "The Invisibles" If you've read it before than you'll know that you cant read it twice the same, & that it can leave you a changed person. Grant Morrison has a way of conveying concepts to us that few other author's can conceptualize, He transcends genius & madness to a place of surreal connectivity with his readership & then blasts you off to outer space with stunning character developments, intrigue, & global warfare in ways you didn't imagine. Pick this up if you want to take your understanding of this crucial series to the next level!
4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent companion to Grant Morrison's Invisibles 2 Jan 2013
By Don Strawser - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a well-written analysis of Grant Morrison's Invisibles, which helped point out or explain many of the obscure references in the series. It also included interesting analysis of the way various issues are addressed throughout the series including an interview with Morrison that was very enlightening. I recommend this for any fan of the Invisibles.
