The Invisibles #5: 'Arcadia: Part 1: Bloody Poetry'

Arcadia is a critical arc in the series’ run, introducing us to the characters within the cell and giving the reader a look at a ‘typical’ Invisibles mission. It also contains all the information you need to understand the rest of the series, right through the final issue, though on the initial read, that is far from apparent. It always surprises me to go back and see just how much is laid out here, things you could never pick up on the first go around, but see glaringly obvious on the reread. That’s part of what makes the series so rewarding, each time you play the game, it’s a little different.

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.
