Black Friday in the Dark with Sambo

Throughout this past year, I have read Grant Morrison’s The Invisibles comics series, contained in the +1,500 page Vertigo omnibus; and the novel Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison.  Putting aside the vain attempt to understand either one of these narratives, a reader can discover something new and meaningful by considering the mix of time, visuals, and audio connecting all of these profound ideas.  A book from 1952 has much to say about today; and as a literary accomplishment it rivals the best of magical realism.
