The Invisibles #24: 'Goodbye Baby Rabbits'

The volume proper wraps up in this really solid issue. This one brings us some more information on the nature of the universe as a whole and gives Dane some further crucial development. When I reached this point in the series the first time through, I was really enjoying it, but not quite getting all of the cosmology. On the reread, it's clear that pretty much everything you need to know has already been set, but the first time through we don't have the mental tools to process it. We're still trapped in linear time perception, unaware of the larger whole....

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.

I adore your reading of Jack's weapon being a demystifing exercise, rather than the holding of a Platonic "true name"!
