Look, I’m not saying The Duffer Brothers are necessarily “The Invisibles” fans. The walls are.
In episode seven of the second season of their smash hit “Stranger Things”, Eleven encounters a gang of misfits that apparently read and were very affected by Grant Morrison’s epic masterpiece of a comic book, their lair is covered in references to “The Invisibles”. In the picture, in white above them, you can clearly see the “Barbelith” graffiti, an essential part of the story. And to the far right, reversed in a window, there’s the “King Mob” tag. Both are drawn exactly like those in the comic book.
What does this means to the “Stranger Things” story? Probably not much, it’s just an easter egg. A very sophisticated and cultured easter egg, only the cool people know about “The Invisibles”. Not to brag, but I’ve been writing about it in my blog in Spanish.
After the jump, the “King Mob” tag from the other side of that window, with another “Barbelith” above and a reference to Tom O’Bedlam:
And you thought The Duffer Brothers were just some preppy “E.T.” fans, smh.
