The Invisibles: Entropy in the UK (vol. 3)

Credits: Written by Grant Morrison and Illustrated by Phil Jimenez, Mark Buckingham, John Stokes, Paul Johnson, Dick Giordano, Mark Pennington, Tommy Lee Edwards and Steve Yeowell
Publisher: Vertigo (DC)

ENTROPY IN THE UK is the third of three books that comprise The Invisibles, Volume 1.

Commentary

Continuing on where Apocalipstick left off (the whole second half of Volume One of THE INVISIBLES takes place over about a 48 hour period), ENTROPY IN THE UK brings Grant Morrison's epic to an explosive, brainbending conclusion. The good guys, thoroughly shattered and scattered within the belly of the beast have to pull together in the face of unbeatable odds and save the whole goddamn world once again.

Starting with the strange, Jerry Cornelius-esque origin of King Mob, Morrison's tale hops across genres and styles while somehow retaining a white-knuckle pace towards its end. By the time it's all said and done, you'll be amazed at Morrison's abilities to draw patterns and connections between even the most disjointed of elements.
