The Invisibles: Volume 1; Issue 1

DC Comics is offering all legal like the first issue of the coolest comic ever , for those who don't know them, they are invisible after all: The plot follows a single cell of The Invisible College, a secret society battling against physical and psychic oppression using time travel, magic(k), meditation, and physical violence.

For most of the series, the team includes leader King Mob; Lord Fanny, a Brazilian transgendered shaman; Boy, a former member of the NYPD; Ragged Robin, a telepath with a mysterious past; and Jack Frost, a young hooligan from Liverpool who may be the next Buddha (psst: we all may be the or a next Buddha). Their enemies are the Archons of Outer Church, interdimensional alien gods who have already enslaved most of the human race without its knowledge.

Not much use for synchromystic analysis when it's all out in the open, and that's what is so excellent about this comic!

Thanks to The Invisibles for the heads up.

You know, this really is going to make me dig out my original copies, though I think I only have the first series, 1-25...

Great of the only ones I ever really followed, other than Sandman. Thanks for reminding me.
