    In the second volume of this series of action and intrigue, the Invisibles, including new recruit Dane McGowan, try to prepare as the Conspiracy's shock troops launch their greatest direct attack on them ever. And as this hidden war between authority and anarchy continues, the origin of Lord Fanny, the transvestite shaman who can call down the Earth's most ancient and terrifying magic, is finally revealed. But as conspiracies and hidden truths create a labyrinth of deception and distrust, even the power of this she-man shaman may not be enough to keep the Invisibles alive to fight another day.

    What if they gave a war and nobody saw?

    What if you suddenly found out it was happening all around you? Would you join up, pick sides, take up arms? Would you kill? Or would you try to run, try to hide, try to deny the whole thing?

    A silent war has raged for millennia, shaping the world as wee know it, and jack Frost --- the newest member of the anarchist revolutionary society known as the Invisibles --- has just found out how high the stakes are and what the enemy agents of the Ultimate Conspiracy are cable of.

    And he doesn't like it one bit.

    The initiation into an unseen conflict as old as the universe and as fresh as tomorrow's headlines continues here where THE INVISIBLES: SAY YOU WANT A REVOLUTION left off.

    THE INVISIBLES exposes the intertwining tendrils of an unstoppable Apocalyptic Conspiracy.

    Meet Jim Crow, master of Voodoo triphop, and enter the outrageous world of Brazil's transvestite sorcerers as the sordid, glittering past of Lord Fanny unfolds.

    Learn the secrets of life, death, magic and the Beyond with THE INVISIBLES.

    Created and written by Grant Morrison (named Entertainment Weekly's "Comic Book Savant" in the magazine's salute to the Top 100 Creative People in Entertainment) and illustrated by Jill Thompson, Dennis Cramer, Chris Weston, John Ridgway, Steve Parkhouse, Kim DeMulder, and Paul Johnson, THE INVISIBLES: APOCALIPSTICK collects issues 9-16 of THE INVISIBLES Volume One.

    The second book focuses on a harder to relate too character,  the Cross-dressing, trans-gender shaman, Lord Fanny.   I know it sounds silly, but with The Invisibles silly at first can change quickly.  In this book Grant Morrison continues too teach us that the world is not what it seems.  Magic is real and he goes into why it is in this book.  It is a very interesting lesson of metamorphosis of Humanity and its ancient relationships to cultures like Egypt and India. Don't forget the Aliens as we...
