Nameless by Grant Morrison

Into the Wild

Nameless Read Online Free - Nameless tells the story of a down-at-heel occult hustler known only as "Nameless" who is recruited by a consortium of billionaire futurists as part of a desperate mission to save the world. A massive asteroid named Xibalba — the "Place of Fear" in Mayan mythology — is on collision course with the planet Earth.

If that wasn't trouble enough, the asteroid has an enormous magical symbol carved into its side and is revealed to be a fragment of our solar system's lost fifth planet, Marduk, destroyed sixty-five million years ago at the end of an epic cosmic war between the inhabitants of Marduk and immensely powerful, life-hating, extra-dimensional "gods."

One of those beings is still alive, imprisoned on Xibalba, dreaming of its ultimate revenge on all that exists. When Nameless and his teammates inadvertently unleash this malignant soul-destroying intelligence, the stage is set for a nightmarish, nihilistic journey to the outer reaches of human terror.

"Jesus. It's like the goddamn "Exorcist" meets "Apollo 13!" " This is wacky sci-fi horror loaded with obscure but entertaining references to mythology, ancient religion, physics, psychology, and the occult. Nameless is a weird story of the weird, written by and for the weird. How could it be imp...

Nameless is the kind of thing Grant Morrison excels at. It's a "big picture" kind of story with a lot of weirdness going on-vintage GM! A consortium of billionaires funds a secret mission to stop a massive asteroid named Xibalba from hitting the Earth. But all is not as it seems. There is somethin...

This has been an interesting read to say the least. I have been a fan of the work of Grant Morrison for some time but never got round to reading Nameless - a title that always seem to pop up in his bibliography but which I have never physically seen or read. So I decided it was time to take the pl...

Bullet Review: I'm not 100% sure of 1) what I read or 2) what is going on, but hey, I enjoyed it. But geez louise, is there gore galore! Lots of pages I had to barely glance at or I would lose my lunch!

In our solar system, between Mars and Jupitar, there is an asteroid belt, which some people see as an anomaly in place of a should-have-been 5th planet. This hypothetical planet is named as Phaeton by scientists, and the pseudosciences behind it are collectively referred to as 'disruption theory'...

I'm usually the guy who explain obscure bits of occult trivia and bizarre story structure to my friends, and I'm not sure what the hell I just read. And I read The Filth. Great concepts. Amazing and chilling thoughts on God. Brilliant art. I still don't know what parts were real, what weren't, and...

H. P. Lovecraft meets Arthur C. Clarke? Or more like Crowley meets Sagan? If you are a fan of Grant Morrison then you know what to expect. Still, this is one fucking hell of a mind trip. Business as usual for Morrison. Gorgeously drawn by Chris Burnham.
