I've FINALLY uploaded the rest of The Invisibles:

In Volumes 2 and 3 they go through a lot of different artists and styles. They also turn volume 1 on its head.

Vol 2 Part 1
Vol 2 Part 2
Vol 2 Part 3
Vol 2 Part 4
Vol 2 Part 5
Vol 2 Part 6
Vol 2 Part 7
Vol 2 Part 8


Vol 3 Part 1
Vol 3 Part 2

There are like a million files in volume 2 because the scan quality is higher.
Then volume 3 is pretty short.

It just keeps twisting and mindfucking.

ROCK! My goal for tomorrow is to grab as much of the V for Vendetta, Invisibles, and Filth comics (in paper form!) as a birthday present to myself, but this will certainly be put to good use  8)
People of the United States! We are Unitarian Jihad! We can strike without warning. Pockets of reasonableness and harmony will appear as if from nowhere! Nice people will run the government again! There will be coffee and cookies in the Gandhi Room after the revolution.

Arguing with a Unitarian Universalist is like mud wrestling a pig. Pretty soon you realize the pig likes it.

V for Vendetta is fabulous. Infinitely superior to the movie, though they over all did a decent job with the film, on a scale of comic book movies.

Someone dropped a suggestion of the Promethea books around here. They're really good, nice Alan Moore stuff, but a bit, uh.... well, MAGDJICKQUEY. Gorgeous art, but I wouldn't recommend those for most of the embittered misanthropes around here. :wink: Warren Ellis' Transmetropolitan is magnificent, though. It's been a while since I've read it, so I don't know if I can qualify it as "Discordian" or not, but it's damn fun.

Transmetropolitan is essential to anyone that likes Hunter S Thompson.

Since that's just about every Discordian I know, then...

Finished reading this last night, and it's amazing. Truly excellent series. I REALLY need to get my hands on it, since there's so much of it that demands to be seen without shifting the pages around.

Thanks a bunch for this Prof!

btw for the peoples that use linux:

you can either download the CDisplay windows setup.exe and install it thru wine

or you can get a linux based reader called http://comix.sourceforge.net/ which also looks quite awesome and easy to use for comic book reading. it is also available via ubuntu's synaptic package manager, but that's an older version than the one you get via sourceforge (so i don't know about that one).

A couple of the links from the second set are broken.

Also, King Mob looks way too much like Richard O'Brien.  Its giving me early 90s flashbacks.  I keep hearing KLF and Adamski and shit, and seeing raves.  I never went to a rave in the early 90s.

Thirdly, props to Grant Morrison for writing Jack Frost's voice like someone actually from Liverpool.  Admittedly, I was less impressed when I realized Morrison was not American, as I had presumed, but Scottish, but still, I was impressed with that attention to detail.

Funny enough, heheh, Transmetropolitan got me into Hunter S Thompson.

im halfway through the first book...this series is incredibly ON for me most of the time and incredibly OFF for me some of the time.  i can't put my finger on why it's off at times though.  this tells me that it's not a lack of quality but something else. hmm

Morrison himself admits that he didn't really hit his stride until towards the end of book 1.

The beginning is SO STRONG
then the arcadia plotline is pretty weak IMHO
but then the Lord of All Tears ... and the whole part that they ripped off in The Matrix - it's graphic literature at its best.
