Read full description of the books The Invisibles Book Four Deluxe Edition:This volume combines the latter half of v2 of the Invisibles and all of v3. Although v2 continues up to the Invisibles strengths, v3 unfortunately fizzles out a little, between the Invisibles being broken up, then largely taken off stage. Meanwhile, the comic mainly treads water over v3, until things explode at the end. So, as a whole, this volume is definitely less successful than what came before.
Beginnings (14-16). This final volume starts off slowly, with the initial stories (14-16) mainly focusing on characterization and character development. Quimper nicely ups the tension, as does the opposition's mental trickery, but this is the calm before the storm. Despite its character focus and slow action, these initial issues are entirely enthralling, thanks to what a great job Morrison has done on building up these characters over multiple volumes [7+/10].
Black Science 2 (17-20). A delightful set of double and triple crosses. Certainly, it's the same story (yet again) of the Invisibles attacking another opposition base, but it's told so well, particularly in the last few issues as a lot of threads come together, that you don't mind. [7+/10]
All Tomorrow's Parties (21). Exit one of my favorite characters. (Sigh.) However, this is a very nice bookend to the time travel stories we've been getting throughout the series [7+/10].
The Tower (22). The Tower in the title is the 16th trump of the Tarot deck. It represents change (and destruction and liberation) and that's what the issue is about. It's mostly just a moving around of chairs, setting us up for the final volume, just as things changed in preparation for it. That leaves it as largely a bridge issue [6/10].
Satanstorm (12-9). I find this first story of the final volume of The Invisibles a bit off-putting. The problem is the focus on characters other than our protagonists, especially since what they're doing is so weird and mysterious. Everything comes together in the end, and their story actually turns out to be pretty brilliant. Meanwhile, Morrison starts bringing together all his plots. But the wrong foot at the start is an awkward beginning [6+/10]
KArmageddon (8-5). This is an unfortunate bit of wheel-spinning before the end. I guess it's nice to see the end of Edith's story, but beyond that the plot lines advance at a glacial race, and then there's the issue-long sex diversion (8) which feels entirely irrelevant. [5/10].
The Invisible Kingdom (4-2). Our long-awaited conclusion. This finally puts into motion the plots that were on hold throughout too much of v3. It's a good ending, except it goes a little too esoteric at the end. (Ha! Could it do otherwise?) [6+/10]
Glitterdammurung (1). A final issue of course had to cover the next twelves years, and Morrison of course had to offer it up in a fractured modernist way. There are some interesting moments of beauty here, but also a lot of What?? [5/10]
