The Invisibles #3: 'Down and Out in Heaven and Hell: Part 2'

Issue three picks things up a bit, continuing the story of Dane’s initiation, laying out more of the themes that would become the base for the series to work from. These issues are the first experiment in Grant’s hypersigil process, as much about initiating the reader as they are about initiating Dane. In that respect, it’s unlike the vast majority of fiction out there, because the story itself is secondary to a greater philosophical purpose. The Invisibles, like Alan Moore’s Promethea, works as both a philosophical text and a standard narrative...

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.
