A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 278
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Here is a cool moment from the first issue of Alan Moore and J.H. Williams’ Promethea…
Okay, to set the scene for Promethea, know that Promethea is basically a living story – when someone writes about her with passion, she comes to life – either merging with the artist/writer his/herself or merging with the artist/writer’s inspiration/muse.
Well, in Promethea #1, Sophie Bangs is researching this literary figure Promethea who keeps popping up in various media. She she meets the widow of the last person to write about Promethea, a man who did a comic book featuring Promethea. She does not want to speak to Sophie. Well, on the way back home, Sophie is attacked by some creepy demon-y bad guys. She is then rescued by Promethea! Well, a version of Promethea, at least – an older, out of shape version. This Promethea saves Sophie, but is gravely injured in the process. She takes Sophie to hiding, but they’re pretty much screwed when the demons come back, unless…..
And this might not even be the coolest moment in the comic!!! I wonder if I should do that tomorrow or do a moment from a different issue.
