Product Description

About the Author

Grant Morrison has been working with DC Comics for twenty years, after kicking off his American comics career with acclaimed runs on ANIMAL MAN and DOOM PATROL. Since then he has written such best-selling series as JLA, BATMAN and New X-Men, as well as such creator-owned titles as THE INVISIBLES, SEAGUY, THE FILTH and WE3. In recent years Morrison has been hard at work expanding the DC Universe in titles ranging from the Eisner Award-winning titles SEVEN SOLDIERS and ALL-STAR SUPERMAN to the weekly 52 to the reality-shattering, multiverse-spanning epic that is FINAL CRISIS. In his secret identity, Morrison is a "counterculture" spokesperson, a musician, an award-winning playwright and a chaos magician. He lives and works between Los Angeles and his homes in Scotland.

I love the Invisibles. I loved it when it first came out and I've loved crawling through this Omnibus edition. It bears rereading; I've read it four times now and got something new out of it each time.

My criticisms of this edition are, paradoxically, that it is not quite complete and that it is too big.

It is incomplete because, for a completist like me, it lacks three important items: the letter column editorials by Mark Millar when Morrison was in intensive care (presumably because of the fall out between Millar and Morrison), the short story "I'm a policeman" from Sarah Champion's anthology Disco 2000 which is very much a companion piece to the story "And we're all policemen" which is included; and "It was the 90s" - another text piece from another anthology edited by Sarah Champion called Fortune Hotel.

It's too big because, well, at over 1,500 pages, my arm feels like it is going to fall off every time I hold it for more than 2 minutes. Indeed, the size is what has lead to it taking me so long to read - you can't take it anywhere! I was thinking at one stage of getting a lecturn just so I could read this book, but decided that was going too far.

My perfect edition would be a three volume slipcase edition - one for each of the main arcs - with all the additional companion text pieces mentioned above included. But for now, this will have to do.

A final note: if you do want to read more deeply, not only are Flex Mentallo and the Filth required reading, working as they do as companion pieces, but so are Zenith and Final Crisis. I kind of feel that Morrison has been telling the same story again and again for 30 years which would be a criticism if he didn't do it so damn well.

I missed Invisibles when it came out years ago. I'm very familiar with Morrison's work but I've always been more hooked into the likes of Sandman, Watchmen, Authority, The Boys, Y-The Last Man, Ex Machina, Planetary... I had a feeling that Invisibles would easily fit into that group.

And it does!

Although, omnibus is a handful. It makes you stay up pretty late several nights in a row.

I never read the invisibles before buying this collection.
I have to say it is a slow read but very enjoyable.
What makes it slow is the depth of story and the understanding of the characters.
Arguable Grant Morrison's best work.
