The Invisibles created by Grant Morrison

Fanny is being attacked by Miss Dwyer, while Robin and Jim Crow approach the source of the disturbance. Boy and Mr Six are at the centre of the abscess. Mr Six seals it by sacrificing his Brian Malcolm personality. Meanwhile, Jack is experiencing Barbelith while being approached by the King-of-all-Tears. King Mob injects Miss Dwyer with Key 23 and Fanny subdues her by showing her a mug with "World's Greatest Dad" written on it. Jack Frost manages to out-think the Archon by telling him that he knows his name. The whole disturbance stops. Jim Crow kills Miss Dwyer, and King Mob is healed by Jack Frost's Magic Mirror. Jack also replaces Sir Miles' aura, and they decide to leave for America.

Annotations [Good-bye Baby Rabbits]

o [page 6] [panel 4] "Cthulhu": a reference to H.P. Lovecraft's character of the same name. [CG]

o [page 7] [panel 1] Onorthocrasi, Efememphi, Iocho, Nenetophi, and Blaomen are demons from "The Apocriphon of John". See "The Nag Hammadi Library" edited by Mames M. Robinson (HarperCollins). [PR] panel 3: Is the Imbecile Pope another Harelquin-type reference?[CG]

o [page 12] [panel 2] Another Outer Church reference. See 2.03 [PV]

o [page 13] [panel 1] Barbara Cartland is an English romance novelist. She was related (step-grandmother? Not sure, something like that) to the late Princess Diana - a significant figure in Invisibles lore. Everything is connected!!! [AJS]

o [page 14] [panel 5] At last we know why they call him the King-of-All-Tears. This goes a ways toward substantiating the cosmology postulated on pages 1 and 22 of next issue, but keep in mind the King has no reason to be telling the truth, either. [RD]

o [page 15] [panel 2] The King is evidently shifting himself to [page 16] [panel 3] of 2.06. Also, for more talk of time as a sphere, see 1.15 [RD] [panel 3] This bit about colored cubes sounds oddly familiar. Can anyone place it? [RD]

o [page 16] [panel 1] Robin's mysterious photograph, next seen in 2.01 and pivotal for the creation of a time machine. [CG]

o [page 17] [panel 1] This reminds me: Jim's bird has been a lot less talkative than in 1.10. Any reason? [RD] Jim's bird might be less talkative in the later portions of v. 1 than in issue 10 because Jim isn't alone. [KM] Jim's bird may be less talkative because it's a different bird- at some point he refers to this- he may have had to leave the "Ouija Bird" at home, possibly because of England's (6 month) pet quarantine. [HE] [panel 2] "Inferno" is the first part of "The Divine Comedy" by Dante Alighieri. It tells the story of Dante on a journey through the Hell, Purgatory and Heaven. The Italian writer describes the nature of this three worlds and the famous (dead) people he met. A masterpiece of the Italian literature. [PV]

o [page 20] [panel 4] According to her own words, Robin already assisted a dying King Mob (this could happen in the future where she comes from) [PV] Is this related to Robin's deja vu in 1.17, page 15? [BSI] Also refers to 2.04 when she tells Boy she knows she and King Mob don't have a future together. [L]

o [page 21] [panel 4] "ones and nothing": Jack's referring to computer language based on a succession of 1s and 0s ("1" and "0" correspond to open and closed circuits). [PV] "Ones and nothings" - Compare with the enemy's fixation on "yes/no" as seen earlier on the Harmony House card decks and later on the big sphere in the Outer Church images. [EB]

o [page 23] [panel 2] "Abominable plateau of Leng": The Plateau of Leng is in Asia. [KM] This is definitely a Lovecraft reference. [RM]
