Whats The Invisibles about?
Heh, talk about your difficult questions
It's an extremely strange and convoluted tale of conspiracy by Grant Morrison. The world, you see, is locked in an eternal struggle between the unimaginably tyrannical and hideous Outer Church and the anarchic, trascendent, freedom-loving Invisible Army. The story focuses on a boy from Liverpool named Dane, recruited into the Invisibles because of his prodigious psychic powers.
Grant Morrison isn't afraid to completely ignore conventional reality and more or less less his imagination run wild - among the ranks of the Invisibles are Lord Fanny, Brazilian transvestite shaman; Ragged Robin, time-travelling witch; and Jim Crow, voodoo rapper. He takes similar liberties with the plot: I've read the whole thing through twice, and I still
don't know what's going on in a lot of places.
It's a series I very strongly recommend, in short
