The Invisibles #2: 'Down and Out in Heaven and Hell: Part 1'

Following the hyperbolic first issue, Morrison scaled things back for an arc that’s probably my least favorite in the whole run of the series. I can see his goals, and I think he sets up a lot of interesting themes, but for me, The Invisibles isn’t really The Invisibles until the whole team’s assembled and things start moving forward. I feel like there’s a massive change that you can sense in the series once Morrison goes through the abduction experience, until then he’s writing fiction, after that he’s writing autobiography. At this point we get some of the imagery that would become important, but it lacks the lived in urgency of future events, such as Dane’s trippy journey in 1.16....

I've taken down my posts on The Invisibles because they're all coming out in book form. The book, Our Sentence is Up, features revised and expanded versions of each blog post, covering every issue of The Invisibles, plus an extensive interview with Morrison himself.
