The Invisibles volume 1 issues 11 to 16

-- These issues are:

The Invisibles volume 1...

Royal Monsters (#11), Best Man Fall (#12), the three-parter SHEMAN (#13, #14, #15) and London (#16).

-- Collected edition:

These six issues are the last six (of the eight) of the second collected edition "Apocalipstick" -  pictured.

(A note on the cover. While the first collected edition is currently being published, with a re-use of, oddly, Brian Bolland's cover for an issue of volume 2 of The Invisibles, this is a wholly new Bolland cover not on any issue of the series.

Another note - just announced - the omnibus edition will be published in August 2012!)


-- Quote of the month:

Edith, on Dane being “spirit” of the five elemental roles of the team...

 “Spirit? Oh well, it's dazzlingly obvious then. The spirit's role's always unpredictable, you know that. It exits to galvanize and revitalise the elements around it. Here's a boy whose hatred of authority is such that he even rebels against us, against the Invisibles. I think he's here to test you to your limits, Gideon. That's what I think. He's here to shake you to the core.

To get him back, you're going to have to enter the labyrinth and face the beast. You must brave the jaws of the dragon, dear.

Each of you in turn, I shouldn't wonder."

(Issue #13, page 20.)
