I think I found a new favourite! Alan Moore really knows how to tell a story. Promethea's origins, many incarnations and adventures are intriguing and complex, but I never felt lost reading this (as happens all too often with somewhat complex, extended, action-packed plots), because new information and references to things that already have been mentioned come at exactly the right pace. The art's a big help in that department too: it makes the story come alive without forcing you to study each page for 10 minutes before you notice some detail, get some oversight and understand what the hell is going on. Although it's cool enough to make you want to study it for 10 minutes sometimes, anyway. I hope the rest of the series keeps up the high standards set by this first part!
