[comics] Grant Morrison.com updates — New Column, new Digital Ink… Scripts for the aborted Invisibles TV Series … Episode 1:
Malcolm’s in the Invisibles classroom, combing his hair in front of a mirror. With only a few little changes, he’s turned his 70s teacher look into Jason King. Shirt open, he picks up a groovy 70s jacket. Checks out the window where a beautiful blonde in a sports car waves up to him. The full Invisibles team is assembled here but they’re little more than vague presences in the scene. Ragged Robin is laying out tarot cards. Tarot trump 20 – the Aeon, which represents the Crowned and Conquering Child of the coming Aeon of Aquarius/Horus. Malcolm slings his jacket on.
MALCOLM : The ball’s in your court now, young man.
KING MOB : These things happen.
He picks up his gun.
KING MOB : When I was a kid, I always wanted to grow up and find myself living in a 60s spy series.
Pause. He smiles a dangerous smile.
KING MOB : Funny how things work out, isn’t it ?
