Re-read, actually. Alan Moore disguises a modern history of magic and mystical thought in the garb of an action-adventure comic, a la Wonder Woman. The story is perfectly in sync with the art by JH Williams and the whole can feel a bit overpowering at times. I'm currently re-reading this series on my way to the fifth volume which I somehow managed to miss. I am looking forward to the experience. ( )

This is definitely one of the more interesting and entertaining reads I have done this year. The tale of Promethea is just starting in this volume, and I can't wait to find the second one. College student Sophia, in an alternate New York discovers she is to be the new Promethea. Moore's storytelling is very good, and the sense of humor he is known for is present as well. The art on this volume is very good as well, bringing alive the worlds of imagination and drawing the reader in. I am glad I discovered this, and I am looking forward to the next one. In fact, I may have to reread it to see what I may have missed the first time around. ( )

Once it turned into a vehicle for Moore's personal mythotheology, I had to stop reading. Just no. ( )

Borrowed from the library, although they seem to have all other volumes except #2. I'd go for 3.5 stars if I could - a packed start to an intriguing series. Reminds me of Mazeworld and the Unwritten, with strong characters and lots of reality-weaving. For some reason not as entertaining as The Invisibles, say, but keen to pick volume 2 up. ( )

Kind of disappointed with this one. I wanted to like it, but the premise was a bit too much for me. I felt like I was hit over the head with the theme of using your imagination. Ironic, because to me the book felt like there wasn't much imagination involved when coming up with the details of the story. I also didn't like the idea that you could just become this heroine and turn our world into an imaginary one by using your own imagination and creativity. ( )

Promethea is perhaps the most pure expression of some of the key themes of writer Alan Moore’s work.

To Leah, Amber, and Melinda;

To all my family, all my friends.
To my wife, Wendy, for all her everloving support, inspiration and insightful help in the design of Promethea. The art and my life wouldn't be as good without her. Oh, and for her cookies, I must not forget the cookies! Also to Mick Gray, my friend and colleague, and to the power of the imagination.
The ink that I slapped around on this book is dedicated to all the people who made it possible for me to slap around ink on comic books: J.H. Williams III, Mark McKenna, Dan Vado, Chuck Austen, Frank Cirocco, and the rest of you... [sic.] you know who you are. To my favorite comic book writer, Alan Moore -- THANK YOU! Also, I can't forget my wonderful wife, and assistant, Holly...[sic.] the greatest gal in the world.
