"I suddenly realized that everything that I'm trying to say in my nonfiction work, and in some of my fiction work, had been so beautifully and so imaginatively expressed in the work of Grant Morrison."--Deepak Chopra --This text refers to the paperback edition.
About the Author
In his secret identity, Morrison is a “counterculture” spokesperson, a musician, an award-winning playwright and a chaos magician. He is also the author of the New York Times bestseller Supergods, a groundbreaking psycho-historic mapping of the superhero as a cultural organism. He divides his time between his homes in Los Angeles and Scotland. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

The story begins with Dane McGowan, a hoodlum living in Liverpool England. Dane's contempt for authority attracts the attention of two sides of a magical conflict. First, a group of government officials throw him in jail and plan to drain him of his free will. This is until he is rescued by the Invisibles, a group of magic anarchists fighting for unlimited freedom. The first volume of the series has Dane slowly becoming more involved with his saviors.
While the series does a good job of action and dialogue, the plot is extremely disjointed, even by Morrison standards. Combined with the dull artwork, I admit I couldn't fully get into this series. People who are looking for an introduction to Morrison would do better to read Animal man of Arkham Asylum.

However, like other hardcover collections that DC has been putting out, this hardcover has a glued binding. With any glued binding, problems like not being able to comfortably lay the book flat and having the insides of pages being eaten up by the binding will occur. After many repeated readings (unless you take super-care of your books) pages will start to fall out. This is to be expected with any book that has glued binding. Is it still worth purchasing this volume? Yes. The price is right, the page quality is very good, and I like the texture they used on the dustcover. Go read this amazing story, and as long as you take care of the book it will last a very long time.
