Library Journal - Library JournalThis is the third collection of the monthly episodic comic The Invisibles, continuing the saga of five time travelers who are waging a battle throughout history but go unseen by normal eyes, hence the name. The plot jolts the reader unsympathetically from time line to time line, each with its own story; however, reading the first two volumes would fill in some of the plot gaps. Morrison has done arresting work before (The Mystery Play, DC Comics, 1994), but here the shock value seems gratuitous. The artwork is representational and sensational: the characters appear in various stages of undress frequently, although little of consequence generally follows. If libraries are just beginning to add graphic novels to their collections and are looking for mainstream books, any Sandman collection (Vertigo: DC Comics) would be a better choice. However, libraries with advanced graphic novel collections should consider adding all three Invisibles collections.Stephen Weiner, Maynard P.L., MA
