.......the fuck?

Grant Morrison is more incoherent here than I've ever seen him - and I've read his Vertigo stuff. Too rushed, too hurried, not enough space given to let the story breathe. The ultimate bad guy gets taken down in one panel. Other panels appear stuck on at random, things from previous parts are not paid off properly (or at all) and the whole thing desperately needs an editor to rein Grant in.

Bottom line : a succession of nice ideas, decent art and an overwhelming love for Jack Kirby do not make a classic crossover series or indeed an actual story.

Grant Morrison... incoherent? The devil, you say!

Seriously, though, I got through like the first half of the first trade of The Invisibles, and I was like "This dude is either high, or operating on a different plane of existence." Or both. Who knows?

Sad to hear it didn't come together, though.

First off, your icon is hypnotic.

I never start a Morrison story expecting coherency, that's why All Star Superman was such a pleasant surprise.

Ultimate bad guy gets taken down in one panel? Funny, that's how Andrew Diggle ended his run on Hellblazer a few months back. I hope this isn't a trend.

Seriously. What exactly happened? And how is the DC Universe changed by this?

I'm glad I wasn't the only one with that thought. I finished it and handed it to Dennis and figured I must be missing something because I haven't followed the DC universe for very long or had just missed something obvious but he didn't get it either!
