Promethea, Vol. 1 book.

Promethea, Vol.

Promethea is a comic book series created by Alan Moore, J. H. Williams III and Mick Gray, published by America's Best Comics/WildStorm. It tells the story of Sophie Bangs, a college student from an alternate futuristic New York City in 1999, who embodies the powerful entity known as Promethea whose task it is to bring the Apocalypse. Originally published as 32 issues from 1999 to 2005, the series has been re-published into five graphic novels and one hard-back issue.

Alan Moore gives us magic and fables with nothing new. I feel like Alan Moore has just simply written better. This story and Promethea's character and world is not that interesting. I don't think I'll continue reading this series. Williams III's art work is absolutely gorgeous and the colors are incredible as well. I just didn't find the story compelling. Read Moore's Saga of the Swamp Thing, From Hell, V for Vendetta, Watchmen, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, or The Killing Joke instead.

Book 1 of 3 in the Absolute Promethea Series. I couldn't recommend Promethea enough. If you don't already own it and want to see some spectacularly beautiful artwork by J. Williams III at some of his best, I definitely recommend getting this collection.

Comments to eBook Promethea, Book 1
Inabel
What starts out as a tale following a mythical character named Promethea becomes one of the most fun rides through alchemy, Kaballah, tarot, astrology, and all of the mystic arts combined. Joseph Campbell's mono-myth theory, that all mythological stories are essentially the same story, is delivered in a way that reveals itself anew in each issue, which is in such a radically different style from all the previous issues that that makes you appreciate the incredible versatility of artiest J Williams III. I've currently gone through issue 22 in book 4 and can't wait to devour more, and then reread it from the beginning to see what I missed earler.

IMHO, the later Promethea series books got a little long-winded, as Moore did an extended tour of magic and imagination in books 3-4, which wore on me after a while, although they were still very interesting, and then there was a little too much crossover in book 5 with the rest of the America's Best Universe, which to me didn't work all that well. I stil loved them, but the first two books were the best, I think, where Moore and J.H.Williams were only really dealing with Promethea and her adventures. Beautiful, beautiful books.

I can’t believe how long it’s,s taken me to read this title. Moor was,is and always will be, one of the greatest comic writers of all time.

It was an entertaining read in between classes. I found myself wanted to read more at the end of book one. I would like to add that I chose this comic randomly and it turned out to be good.

I'm up to Promethea Part IV by now so I should back up and rein in my thoughts on Volume 1 (which collects the first 6 comics from back in 1999 it looks like). Anyway hats off to Alan Moore for serving up another variation on his "superwoman" ideal, as if Mina Harker from LXG wasn't enough. Well she isn't enough of course. PROMETHEA wouldn't be as interesting as it is (and in fact it's captivated me for the past three days) without its back story, New York in the last days of the last century, but a different New York with far more elaborate architecture and a set of new technologies that makes it seem like something HG Wells prophesized. On top of this strange, baroque background, seeing Stacia and Sophie act like regular co-eds at a place like NYU is what gives it its special, endearing brand of gotcha.

It's a daring, risky book where many lesser talents would have come undone, and as a matter of fact Moore's storytelling here is not exactly his finest, and his allegorical sense isn't altogether on point. OK, so Sophie encounters Little Red Riding Hood and the wolf in her past-our-bourne travels into the underworld... Little Red is snarky and snippy, and the wolf is super terrifying, but isn't this a story Angela Carter did already like, a zillion times, not to mention the Stephen Sondheim of INTO THE WOODS? I feel like I'm missing the point from time to time... Also the "5 Swell Guys," five science heroes who swank around the skies of New York at night in their bubble car. Moore fans help me, did they appear in some other comic and so all of you know about them already? Lord love a duck, I haven't been able to distinguish them any better than my fingerprints, except for "Kenneth," the psychic one, who must be named after "Kenneth what's my frequency?"

Will evil and all seeing Marto Neptura be back later on in the saga? He's the one who scares me the most, him and his army of alligator men, they will haunt my nightmares forever! Or is he a false bogey, already vanquished, the way the great Wizard of Oz dwindles to insignificance once one goes beyond the screen? For myself, I used the anagram trick to take my mind away from the paralyzing fear. "Marto Neptura?" asked Alice. "Why, he's only "Our Apartment" spelled backwards, that's all!"

I really enjoy the storyline and the art is good too. There is or was a bit of a problem with the zoom feature on the kindle and some pages were hard to read, but in general it was pleasant to click through and a fun story that hooked me in to the series.

The first volume of Promethea was utterly grand. Way back when, I made the mistake of picking up Tom Strong instead of Promethea, and decided Moore's America's Best Comics line could be skipped. Oops. So now I'm catching up a couple decades late.
I decided to start reading the Promethea series after reading about Alan Moore's different projects over his career. The Promethea series serves the dual purpose of being an entertaining story while also teaching occult principles.
In this first volume the topics discussed are imagination and visualization, especially upon mythical characters (such as Promethea) to manifest them from their realm (the Immateria) into the physical realm, as well as the idea of writing these ideas down to further focus them. Two suits of the Tarot are also introduced via different incarnations of the Promethea character throughout history: the Cups (love and compassion), and Swords (reason).
Very well written, with beautiful art.
