Read in August, 2007

Promethea is a great idea set in a fantastic world (I love the details!) with fabulous characters. Sophie's loooong voyage into the Immateria (...she meets God! She IS God! We are ALL God! Wow!) was boring, but no where near as frustrating as the end of the series. Promethea-as-Ender-of-Worlds I like, but then it all got very psycadelic and I'm pretty sure Moore just finished writing while on acid.

Michael One note about the end of Promethea:

The entire ABC line was cancelled en masse after diminshing sales; although Promethea had a defined end, the other ABC characters were thrown into the last few issues to help tie the Promethea story in with the rest of the 'world'. Thus you get the weird (and somewhat jarring) Tom Strong appearances - and Promethea appearing in Tom Strong as well.

You might take a look at Top Ten if you've never read it. Although Gene Ha's art is totally different than Williams's, the level of detail is mind-boggling. It's practically a Where's Waldo of comics history in the backgrounds.
