    One thought on “Our Sentence is Up: Seeing Grant Morrison's The Invisibles”

    1. Excellent companion read to the series, highlighted a lot of things I had missed in the series as I went along and added to the enjoyment. Great series to read.

    2. The invisibles is the real thing. I just, at last, read this book, along with my third (maybe fourth?) re-reading of the invisible saga. The book is a fine commentary, it is organized in chapters that follow the comic’s ones so it’s possible to read together “Our sentence is up” and the comics, chapter by chapter. That’s the most effective way to read this book. And, let me say it’s good. The invisibles is probably the most complex and dense book I ever read. Not just among comics. S [...]

    3. A great interpretation of The Invisibles with a focus on the false dichotomy of the war and shifting personas of the characters. I didn't always agree but it was fun to read alongside the comic. The interview with Grant Morrison was excellent.

    4. A good issue-by-issue guide to the comics series, and a great interview with Grant Morrison in the back. If you've read and liked The Invisibles, you should check this out. Otherwise, go out and read the graphic novels before considering this.

    5. An absolutely expertly written and indispensible companion for further studies of Grant Morrison's hyper-sigil masterpiece.
