The Invisibles Vol. 2 #18: 'Black Science: Part 2: Einstein's Monsters'

The cover of this issue is great, really creepy looking, and fitting perfectly with what’s going on in the book at this point. Unfortunately, we’re missing Chris Weston on art once we get inside the book. Ivan Reis does a pretty good job of filling in, but reading the series in trade, it’s pretty clear that whatever rushing was done to meet the monthly schedule wasn’t worth it. It would have been better to let the artists take their time, and put out the best book possible. With a book like this, I’m assuming most of the audience was pretty devoted, and a one month delay wouldn’t make a huge difference in readership. Yes, it’d be frustrating, but in the long run, it would be worthwhile....

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.
