The second volume of the critically acclaimed, multiple award-winning series PROMETHEA is every bit as good as, if not better than, the first volume — and we don't make that statement lightly!This collection follows Sophie Bangs, the latest in a long line of Prometheas, on a winding journey of discovery as she continues to learn the secrets of the Immateria...and herself. Her transcendental adventure brings young Sophie to realms of magic and wonder that none have experienced before. Collecting PROMETHEA issues #7-12, this book contains such fan-favorite stories as "Rocks and Hard Places," where Sophie learns about the Promethea named Bill, and "Sex, Stars, and Serpents," where Sophie learns some… er… valuable lessons.Moore — the most lauded writer in the history of comics — and the fan-favorite art team of Williams & Gray combine their talents for a unique vision in comics that Entertainment Weekly has given an "A-" — describing the creative team as "seemingly hell-bent on reinventing the art of comics storytelling."

Baker & Taylor
Comics narrate the story of university student Sophie Bangs as she fights mystical places and spirits to unveil the truth behind mythical warrior woman, Promethea.

The whole Promethea series is a vivid and complex multidimensional extravaganza and Alan Moore is the grand, grand master of writing them.

This series seems to get better with each issue. The imagination put into these stories is incredible. There is an issue where Promethea learns about magic from the two snakes on her caduceus. The tell her the story in poetry; the entire issue's narrative is rhyming prose. The art continues to be gorgeous and imaginative. Highly recommended.

This is even weirder than the first book - I hadn't a clue as to what was happening
