The Invisibles Vol. 2 #4: 'Black Science: Part 4: Safe'

The first storyline of the volume ends in pretty spectacular fashion with a hallucinogenic burst of pure action and conceptual insanity. It’s close to The Invisibles at its best, and it’s certainly The Invisibles at its most.

The opening page draws us right into the world, with Austin’s dancing. This gets right to the core of the previously established between traditional, natural magic, and the lifeless mechanisms of the Outer Church. As Dane says “This is fucking mental, man. It’s brilliant but it’s mental.” There’s another line that sums up the whole series....

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.
