This is how the world ends. Will it be a nightmare of control and repression? Or will it be the beginning of a higher stage of existence? All this and more is revealed in this stunning final volume of Grant Morrison's psychoactive comic-book epic The Invisibles. Collecting all twelve issues of The Invisible Volume Three, The Invisible Kingdom marks the end of one of the most revolutionary narratives in comics history. Together with some of the medium's finest artists, Morrison weaves together a tapestry of characters and ideas unlike anything ever seen before, and provides a glimpse of the possible that lies behind the everyday.

*Note: Issue #2 had three pages redrawn.

In this issue is also one of the few times where when being collected in Trade Paperback a few pages are redrawn and altered. In this case the three Ashley Wood pages that were later redrawn by Cameron Stewart for the collected Trade Paperback.

Inked version of the second redone Cameron Stewart page.

Below are the side by side comparison of Ashley Wood's pages verses Cameron Stewart's.

To the Left we have Ashley Wood's page, to the Right Cameron Stewarts.

All the words bubbles and the number of panels are the same in both versions in the above comparison. No words are changed in both the above and below versions. The only real difference is an additional panel is present in Ashley Wood's version. This could be a minor thing and something that was not in the script anyway. The main symbols and key visuals are present in both versions. All Cameron Stewart really did was exaggerate certain things, like the mother and her baby. Ashley Wood's pages stuck to a presentation with more shadows.

Only really in the third and final page of Ashley Wood's contributes are completely changed. The number of panels extend from Five to Six and the visual presentation and ideas are very different. Only in the third page it is clear Grant Morrison was not happy with Ashley Wood's original pages.

The Cameron Stewart pages are considered the true version since they were redone for the Trade. Ashley Wood's pages are interesting because they were a different interpretation of the same script.

The trade is if anything is a easier read with the redone pages.

3...2...1... Information Overload 0

As each Volume of The Invisibles finished, the more we saw of Grant Morrison's endgame. Barbelith.. .  At the End of Time (2012), Humanity will become beings of great information.  The Invisibles from the beginning was all about information.  Grant Morrison teaches us about Time, Space, Chaos, Magic, Aliens, Ancient History and ourselves.  From this series we can become our own self thinking individuals or stay in the "Matrix" if you will.  Reality is just a Hologram after all.  Do you ...
