The Invisibles Vol. 2 #7: 'The Sound of the Atom Splitting'

The series hits its most violent level in this issue, which has some really memorable moments, but ultimately this storyline winds up as the only Invisibles arc that feels a bit padded. It’s a lot denser than most comics out today, but compared to the density of ‘Sheman’ or ‘Entropy in the UK,’ there’s just not that much here.

The cover of this issue is my least favorite Bolland cover. It feels more like a Preacher cover, an attempt to shock the reader. Luckily, it’s not a Glenn Fabry level of nasty, but still, I’d rather have seen Jack and Fanny dancing on the cover than the Harlequin....

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.
