    Psychedelic, shamanic, avant garde, brutal.. these words barely scratches the surface of this intriguing series. The Invisibles is what inspired the Matrix – you will see many parallel themes as you read on – but in some ways it’s much more psychedelic and mind-blowing.

    I’d been waiting to read it for awhile, having heard from multiple sources it was essential. “Oh you like Grant Morrison? Read the invisibles. Oh you need another series of graphic novels to get hooked on? Read the invisibles. Want to get your mind blown? Read the invisibles.So when volume one showed up on the display rack after a long period of absence I seized it immediately.

    Well I just put the book back on the shelf and I have to say I’m a little stunned. I’m going to have to take a breather before I take on the next volume…
