thetoo-smart-for-his-own-good aesthetic without alienating his
readers.Promethea weaves Moore's trademark scholarly mysticism with wild,
fun swipes at post-everything culture in a complex tale based on the
importance of story. Following a teenage girl, whose interest in an obscure
and possibly real heroine leads to her assumption of the heroine's role,
Promethea draws on a century of comics art to express themes of history and
fiction.Action, intimacy, fantasy, and ennui all find their place, and when
it's over, the reader will hunger for the next collection.
