Read full description of the books:
Magic, psychic war, time travel, espionage. But how about that ending.
Well, that was a bit anticlimactic. The Invisibles starts great but stumbles under its own ambition at the end, like Morrison never had a clear and definitive ending in mind. It's fun and crazy while it lasts, until the free association gets carried away and soon there's just a loose plot of "war" pulsing under long form word scramble you're forced to project meaning upon. I was really skimming at the end, hoping for a firm punctuating end, but there wasn't. I'm confused about what even happened. Spoilers ahead.
The psychic war ends, that much is clear. It's The Invisibles versus "evil satanic negative-universe anti-masonry dudes who actually control the government." I think. But some Invisibles are bad, some disappear, some baddies are good, some are both. Still confused about what Division X even is. Then the future evil King of England doesn't quite make it, so I guess that's the real climax. But this moment failed to satisfyingly end this 1500 page mind fuck. And then the book went on for another 100 pages...
Time, jumping every chapter or so in previous volumes, jumps every few pages. It's hard to keep track of when anything is happening. And the artwork is unprecedentedly random is this volume. I mean really, like fifty different illustrators are involved in this volume alone, changing several times in one issue. Talk about distracting!
Okay, okay. So the series wrap up has some problems. But let's back up. What's the message of all this again? That we, average human beings, are brain-washed and don't see the psychic war that's happening. That all of reality is a fabrication by controlling evil hands. And what a war it is! So okay, I guess the ending is about as chaotic as I should have expected. It mind fucked, it weirded, it fizzled out. I just wanted more explosions. Less time jumping. And maybe ten fewer illustrators.
This series educated me, the reader, on both sides of the psychic war, mostly The Invisibles, the good guys, and their wacky and diversionary quest for truth, whatever that is. The double-edged sword is that while limitations don't exist here, the story goes off the rails and becomes a sort of rambling psychedelic prayer. That everything is everything, and whatever that means we should gobble up that truth and amen. Unfortunately this "philosophizing" ends up detracting from the story and eventually becomes the story itself, metafiction and all that justifying "bollocks." What I really noticed is that The Doom Patrol is focused mind fuck and this is unfocused mind fuck. That's what it is.
Rambling aside, The Invisibles is a fun, wacky, imaginative, and ambitious series overall, but the ending didn't quite stick for me.
