The Invisibles Vol. 3 #12: 'Satanstorm: Part 1: Common People'

After the comfortable group vibe of Volume II, Volume III is a bit jarring. All the characters we’d grown attached to are gone, we’ve got the stylized art of Phil Bond, and all of a sudden return to a plotline that was seemingly abandoned a long time ago. The first time through, it was very frustrating. I just wanted the old crew back together, on rereads, once I know what to expect, it’s more interesting. There’s a lot of crazy stuff going on here, and, while not as strong as Volume II, it certainly has its merits....

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.
