The volume ends with some behind the curtains, providing a spotlight on the process of starting such a series. Overall, an excellent volume, setting the bar pretty high for the rest of the series.
The single issues brought it down a bit, so 4. I'll round down only because I keep the five stars for perfection, but it may as well be five stars.
Nov 23, Tom rated it liked it Shelves: comics , re-read. Continuing right along Reading comic reissues, I am always struck with the advances in the drawing and layout over the past several decades. It is amazing how much everything has shifted so that even comics that had very nontraditional layouts at the time of release now seem rather ordinary looking.
The other issue that this volume raises is the treatment of transgender characters. I wish, in addition to Continuing right along I wish, in addition to some of the early plot layouts that Grant Morrison included, that there was coverage of early critical reactions and how well or poorly a character such as Fanny was received. For being 20 years ago, Morrison's treatment of the subject seems quite remarkable in sensitivity, at least to me.
I am sure a more critical eye might spend much of this volume rolling.
Oct 30, Sean Cogan rated it really liked it. Being familiar with the characters and concepts made it easier to digest, although there's still a lot going on. I especially enjoyed the notes at the back from Grant Morrison's first ideas of the Invisibles. The context of what he is trying to do with the series helps to put the actual storylines into perspective. However, you're really just going to have to accept that not everything is going to make sense, and I would say I enjoyed this book better than Book One of the Deluxe Edition series.
However, you're really just going to have to accept that not everything is going to make sense, and that there are things going on behind the scenes that you're not meant to really know about just yet. If you can get past that, and try to come up with your own interpretation of the stories, I think you'll enjoy this more than if you try to figure everything out and actually understand the overarching plot.
Feb 22, Keen rated it really liked it. The continuing story develops along unpredictable and non-linear lines, with plenty of horror, mystery and journeys within journeys within journeys. The action can be quite intense and the snappy dialogue helps to keep it belting along at quite a thrilling pace.
Sep 27, Lukas Sumper rated it really liked it. Wonderfully weird, despite the first half being gross and kind of harder to get through then the rest, the second half becomes finally more focused. I don't know if I am wrong but it felt like Morrison just created half of that plot on the go, mainly because sometimes it feels really random. Two thirds of this Volume are background stories s0 we finnally get to know and hopefully also like the team one by one, the police lady's I loved the most since it was the most grounded and is also really we Wonderfully weird, despite the first half being gross and kind of harder to get through then the rest, the second half becomes finally more focused.
Two thirds of this Volume are background stories s0 we finnally get to know and hopefully also like the team one by one, the police lady's I loved the most since it was the most grounded and is also really well written. The first and final act I had some problems with but nothing too mayor. Man those extras! Jan 08, Char Lee Sea rated it it was amazing. After book 1, I was a little apprehensive to continue. It was totally confusing with 20 different plots?
It seemed overly ambitious. Then I read book 2 and saw the genius everyone talks about. All the disjointed craziness comes together.
While things ran a bit slow at times, I liked it overall. A lot has been written about Lagos, and its people.

I'm in the middle of book 3, and I will say The Invisibles may be the best comic I've ever read! Definitely up there with Alan Moore and Frank Miller. But it is definitely not for everybody. It has far deeper subject matter than your typical Marvel s After book 1, I was a little apprehensive to continue.
It has far deeper subject matter than your typical Marvel superhero comics. Jun 04, Amanda Lett rated it really liked it. Definitely more intense and more engaging than Deluxe Vol. While some of the terminology surrounding the main Trans character is dated, the book still treats her as a multidimensional, fully rounded person. Bonus points for a "Father Ted" reference! Jan 05, Joe Quenell rated it really liked it. Volume 2 of The Invisibles gets weirder than the first.

While things ran a bit slow at times, I liked it overall. I particularly enjoyed the She-Man arc. It's been fun watching the story come together, and while there have been some dragging bits, I'm excited to see where the series goes from here. Jan 14, Crimmas rated it really liked it. The series may look colorful and zany on the outside but on the inside it can be pitch-black, and a couple of stories in the beginning made me wonder if I was willing to finish it. These are awesome. I guess I liked 1 better than 2 but 2 is still great. Now, since I started reading in paperback instead of hardcover I gotta wait months to finish it.
The invisibles is an outstanding ridiculous and insane comic that continues to impress and that I very much look forward too. Sep 08, Tom Meade rated it really liked it Shelves: action , adventure , comics , crime , fantasy , humour , science-fiction , thriller , weird. The King Mob vignettes were a bit much, the Lord Fanny story was great. Jul 25, Koen rated it it was amazing Shelves: graphic-novels. Well, this ranks as one of the most apeshit crazy mesjuggah stuff I've read.. But loved it!! Fast paced, electric, drama,.. Just go check it out, you won't be disappointed!!
Aug 29, Nathan Higgins rated it really liked it. What an insane read of a more in depth story of the invisibles. Learning more of back stories of characters and seeing some bad ass fights take place. Check it out!!
Jul 27, Travis rated it it was amazing. Sep 11, John Kuper rated it liked it. I still have no idea what's going on, but I'm enjoying the weirdness of it. May 23, Kane S. The Invisibles continues its strange journey. And I am still on board. One of the things I found lacking in the first volume was a sense of character.
Thankfully, here, right out of the gate, Morrison crafts a series of story arcs that relates the origins of some of the Invisibles. And wow. The three-issue arc about Lord Fanny is absolutely brilliant. It is the best distillation of this comic book I have yet encountered. Loopy occult-based spirituality, anarchic sense of humour, transformat Wacko.
