About the Author

Grant Morrison has been working with DC Comics for more than twenty years, beginning with his legendary runs on the revolutionary titles ANIMAL MAN and DOOM PATROL. Since then he has written numerous best-sellers — including JLA, BATMAN and New X-Men — as well as the critically acclaimed creator-owned series THE INVISIBLES, SEAGUY, THE FILTH, WE3 and JOE THE BARBARIAN. Morrison has also expanded the borders of the DC Universe in the award-winning pages of SEVEN SOLDIERS, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, FINAL CRISIS and BATMAN, INC., and he is currently reinventing the Man of Steel in the all-new ACTION COMICS.
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 best-seller 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.

Still really confused...enjoying the series, but I feel stupid because I still don't really understand what is going on...

Ties-up the events of Book 2, Entropy in the UK shows Jack Frost finally excepting his new role as member of the Invisibles and messiah of the new age or whatever he¿s supposed to be. It also introduces us to Mister Quimper, a freaky dwarf who becomes really important in the rest of the series. Course, I¿ve only read up to Book 4, but I still know he¿s got something going on.Morrison ¿borrows¿ some elements from other sources in the whole storyline where Sir Miles tortures King Mob are lifted from the Prisoner (which I mean to see) and Moorcock¿s Jerry Cornelius. The whole Gideon Stargrave thing is either a homage or complete rip, no matter how much Morrison tries to deny it. There are two many similarities between the characters (They both transfer from reality to reality and where resurrected on more then one occasion, both have an incestuous relation with there sister, at one point the word ¿tasty¿ is used to describe the world which is a reference to Moorcock¿s ¿The Final Programme.¿) I¿m not complaining however, because I found the whole Gideon Stargrave thing amusing and I don¿t feel it ruins the story.I also appreciated ¿How I became Invisible,¿ which went into more detail on the life of the character Boy, a female African-American ex-cop from New York who joined the Invisibles. I¿m not going to go into to much detail, but it¿s pretty interesting and reveals a lot about Boy, who for me up until know was just sort of ¿there.¿And it all ends up with a somewhat confusing one-shot story concerning something called Division X, which includes Jack Frost¿s ex-teacher who it turns out is an Invisible agent named Mister. Six. I don¿t know if Division Six is working for the Invisibles, but if they are they aren¿t doing it directly, as Mister Six¿ co-workers are completely unaware that he¿s with the Invisibles. This story introduces the afore mentioned Mister Quimper, who apparently made a porno movie using that thing from Book 2 that was in the mirror, which isn¿t something the general porn buying public would enjoy unless they are into Lovecraftian things devouring women.So in conclusion, Entropy in the UK ties up Volume 1 very well and Mister Quimper is a little freak.

A couple of spine-shivering "you magnificent bastard" moments, although I do admit to skipping a lot of the "this is what it feels like to be in an Old One's head" box narration. It's cool too how literary the Invisibles is - not the Crowley or whatever from the text, but, like, Blake; Burroughs; That Hideous Strength, except that of course yer Judeo-Christian God is nowhere to be seen.
