The Invisibles Vol. 2 #12: 'American Death Camp: Part 2: Counting to Five'

The Boy arc continues to be confusing and full of layered realities that don't pay off much in this issue, but we do get some great stuff with the other members of the cell. Having Grant Morrison write a scene that starts with "David Lynch directs..." is pretty much a dream for me.

We open with Boy in insect mode, immersed in the world of the outer church. This scene reminds me a lot of Miracleman 15, in which we saw a bunch of bodies spiked on poles, and other really nasty destruction. This is really nasty, with the Ku Klux Klan looking rider, and the hive looming in the background. It's a bad world....

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.
