In the 20th issue of the series, Boy reflects on her past while taking a train to Liverpool to bring Jack back into the fold. In the following issue, "Liverpool",  Jack returns to his mother's flat where he tells her everything that has happened to him since joining the Invisibles. He admits that he is scared of the responsibilities that he now has as humanity's saviour and no longer knows what to do. Jack recalls that when he travelled to a different dimension with Tom O'Bedlam, a sentient satellite called Barbelith forced Jack to feel the collective suffering of humanity.
Remembering this agony and realizing that he can put an end to it, Jack finally accepts his role and agrees to help save his friends.
The Invisibles - Wikipedia
Jack fully realizes the power at his disposal, defeating an extra-dimensional Archon of the Outer Church and healing King Mob of his injuries. Jack also heals Sir Miles, who had been severely hurt during the battle. The volume closes with a look at an Invisible named Mr. Six as he searches for traces of the Moonchild. The second volume begins a year after the events in London. There, the Invisibles face off against Mr. Quimper and Colonel Friday, two psychic agents of the Outer Church. The Invisibles are victorious, though Quimper plants a tiny part of his psyche in Ragged Robin's subconscious.

The Invisibles travel to San Francisco where they meet Takashi, an employee of Mason Lang's who is working on a time machine. In an arc titled "Sensitive Criminal",  King Mob travels back in time via astral projection to learn from past Invisibles how to operate the Hand of Glory. In the following arc, "American Death Camp",  Boy steals the Hand of Glory and attempts to use it to rescue her brother, whom she believes is being held in a secret detention camp in Washington State, US.
In reality, Boy is actually being deprogrammed by a separate cell of Invisibles who discovered that she had been brainwashed by the Outer Church to deliver the Hand to them. The team vacation in New Orleans. In the Dulce facility, Jack is taken into the Magic Mirror substance where he is shown the horrific dimension that the Outer Church hails from. After leaving Dulce, Ragged Robin prepares to return to the future. Using the Hand of Glory as an engine, Takashi's time machine can be used to return her to her own time.
After saying goodbye to King Mob, with whom she has fallen in love, Robin leaves the past behind. Picking up a year after the previous volume, the third and final volume of the series follows the Invisibles as they prepare to stop the Moonchild from being used as a host for Rex Mundi , the extra-dimensional ruler of the Outer Church. Many of the Invisibles have significantly changed in this volume. King Mob no longer uses guns or kills people and Jack Frost has fully accepted his role as humanity's saviour.
Also, The Invisibles no longer consider themselves at war with the Outer Church, this time they are on a mission to rescue humanity before the world ends. He then travels once again into the Magic Mirror and learns that the dimensions that the Outer Church and the Invisible College inhabit are one and the same.
Afterwards, King Mob retires and devotes the rest of his life to non-violence. Jack Frost and Lord Fanny are left to start their own Invisibles cell. Years later, on 21 December , the world is about to end, just as predicted.
Ragged Robin returns and is finally reunited with King Mob. While Grant Morrison wrote the entire series, The Invisibles never had a regular art team.

Posted by Patrick at AM. It's amazing how closely your original reading journey follows mine, though I was much older. Thanks again for the blogging series! Some minor quibbles here at the end: I think Animal Man is a lot more sophisticated than people give it credit fora reflection on them rather than it. It's true that Morrison saves Animal Man, but it isn't the Morrison that appears in the final issue.
And I've got to defend Sartre, who was big with the Beats. Some people discount him because he dared to dress philosophy up as fiction. But the stylistic tradition goes all the way back to Plato. I really loved Animal Man, but I think it came at a time before Morrison totally broke down the barrier between reality and fiction.
In the Invisibles, he not only puts himself into the work, the work puts itself out into reality, and that cross pollination is what makes it so special. But, it's understandable that Animal Man would be simpler, it's the necessary stepping stone to his later explorations, and just because the ideas are simpler doesn't mean it's any less sophisticated. In some ways, the clarity of Animal Man makes it easier to engage with than the intesely convoluted Seven Soldiers. I love Seven Soldiers, but you need to put a lot of time in to fully appreciate the work, with Animal Man, much more of what's important is there on the page.
The Invisibles is maddening. Sometimes I feel like it's taken over my life. Sometimes I'm free.
