A collection of Grant Morrison's "The Invisibles" comics. I cleaned up the directories and converted the file names so they are more easily read with CDislpay's Comic Reader for Windows, which can be found here:

What if every conspiracy theory you ever heard was true?
No, wait, what if every crackpot idea you ever heard, conspiracy or
not, was true?
No, no, wait! What if every idea, period, you ever heard was true?
If you can stretch your brain around that concept, you would probably

The Invisibles is a mind-blowing mix of drugs, occultism, UFOs,
voodoo, sexual excess, Witchcraft, sadomasochism, body modification,
movies, government conspiracies, Lovecraftian horror, numerology,
Gnostic cosmologies, anarchy, Mad Science, time travel, superheroes,
Freemasonry, the Apocalypse, plus some stuff that's just plain weird.

The Invisibles is named for the secret society to which our heroes,
such as they are, belong. The comic series was published from 1994 to
2000, with collected editions coming after. Issues of The Invisibles
were kept on the set of The Matrix during filming, a fact which would

The story... well, the story is better experienced than summarized,
but it has to do with the nature of the universe and the meaning of
life. There's kind of a substructure that deals with the whole "good

deconstructed, reality is warped, and it's difficult to tell the good
guys from the bad guys. The Apocalypse also makes an appearance.
The Invisibles is also designed to change the reader, so be
forewarned. If you stick with it, by the end you might find that it's
less fiction than it is biography... Your biography.
