Thumbs up for Promethea, Volume I by Alan Moore. Graphic novel.
Since I’m going to ComicCon tomorrow it seems like it would behoove me to actually read some comics. My boyfriend was right: I loved this. It’s no War and Peace, but a good story starts to gel in this first volume and there are some brilliant moments (Little Red Riding Hood with a machine gun…ha!). The college student Sophie is taken over by the heroic being Promethea, who is apparently going to be responsible for the End of the World. As you can guess, there are some who don’t want that to happen.
“Uh-huh. So it’s like this perilous QUEST thing, yeah? Then you’ll be wanting the DARK WOODS, right over there. I’m going that way myself.”
