Then came weird noises, the disembodied ravings, the phantom robberies, the haunted furniture...The violence...The rampages...The killing.An obscure scientist named Griffin had found a way to turn skin, flesh, blood and bones invisible--and tried the formula on himself. He could go anywhere; spy; steal; menace anyone. The Invisible Man had only two problems.He couldn't turn visible again.And he had gone quite murderously insane.
