As I didn't go to London Film and Comic Con this weekend I decided to treat myself going to Forbidden Planet and picking up the next Promethea book. While not quite as good as three this one was still very enjoyable. Promethea and Barbara continued their journey up the Kabballa tree and exploring the higher realms where things were disjointed and creepy but also VERY happy. The art in this book is really amazing, the layout and colour schemes really blending perfectly to each imagined realm, and the details in the "real world" and wonderful too.
Alas I did notice a flaw in the Chinese they used in the page of many people praying in many languages. (It was a literal english to chinese translation but unfortunately you don't use the very "am" the same way in Chinese). But at least it wasn't as Eurocentric as the history of the world!
I'm enjoying this series quite a lot. I like the essays on what magic is and how imagination relates to and shapes reality and the journey of life. I also like the struggles of the main characters back on "earth". I think more than the other books this one captured their lives better. I also really liked Sophie's reunion with her mom (and dad) and cried lots! I'm looking forward to finishing this series soon....Continua
