From the twisted imagination of Grant Morrison comes a groundbreaking, mind-altering voyage of conspiracies and revelations.
 
Greg Feely is a "dodgy bachelor" living a quiet life in London alone with his elderly cat. Everything changes when a strange woman named Miami Nil confronts him. She informs him that "Greg Feely" is actually a "para-personality"--in effect, a secret identity--and that he is in fact Ned Slade, the top agent for an organization called the Hand, a group of extra-dimensional agents who need Greg/Ned back in action!
 
This out-of-the-box sci-fi story encapsulates the superb talents of two amazing creators into one of the most original graphic novels ever! From the legendary writer Grant Morrison (DOOM PATROL, BATMAN, THE INVISIBLES) and Chris Weston (THE INVISIBLES) comes sci-fi weirdness of the deepest level. Features the complete series of THE FILTH (#1-13) with extra sketch material and annotations from Grant Morrison.
Writer Grant Morrison is known for his innovative work on comics from the graphic novel Arkham Asylum to acclaimed runs on Animal Man and Doom Patrol, as well as his subversive creator-owned titles such as The Invisibles, Seaguy, and WE3. Grant has also written best-selling runs on JLA, Seven Soldiers of Victory, and New X-Men, and helped to reinvent the DC Universe in The Multiversity, All Star Superman, 52, Batman, Batman & Robin and Batman, Inc.

"The mutant child of Alan Moore, Terence McKenna and Robert Anton Wilson, Morrison has emerged as one of only a handful of comics writers with a true voice and vision. He's as fascinated by paranoid conspiracy theories and the Kabbalah as he is by superhero archetypes. They're all played out in this psychedelic science fiction adventure. Like his best-known works The Invisibles and Doom Patrol, this story follows a subterranean organization with terrifying science at its disposal--but in a break from Morrison's previous works, covert government agency the Hand is actually working to maintain the status quo against the mass hallucinations of a society that needs to dream. Artistic collaborators Weston and Erskine capture this insanity with razor-sharp precision, dead-on characterizations and such memorable vistas as a decaying miniature world and planets covered with machines."--Publishers Weekly

"Ideal for fans of 'challenging' comics and scifi."--Booklist
