The title refers both to the police in British slang and to pornography in which Morrison "immersed" himself while "researching" the series.

Feely is actually a member of a shadowy organization called The Hand and their attempts to keep society on the path to the "Status Q".
The Filth can be seen partly as companion piece to The Invisibles in that it touches upon similar themes and concepts such as fractal realities, art affecting life, postmodern blurring of the fourth wall and the world as a single, living organism with humans as the cells that compose it. Morrison has stated that he had originally intended to make The Filth a thematic sequel to The Invisibles , followed by a third comic book series, The Indestructible Man. Flex Mentallo. The Invisibles , 3. The Filth. The theme of The Filth consists of immersion into and eventual redemption from forces of negativity.
Greg Feely is a "dodgy bachelor" living in London alone but for his elderly cat, Tony. While returning home after buying cat litter and a pornographic magazine from a newsagents , an unknown woman on the bus tells him "not to fuck with The Filth".
