Promethea book 2 was a bit of an odd mixture. It is definitely a collection of comics more than a graphic novel, as each issue had it's one theme. The frist was definitely my favourite as the gay guy promethea talked about his life and the meeting
of the physical world and reality. Then there was adventure in the hospital and Alan Moore's guide to sex and magic, which while quite good, I must admit felt a bit heavy handed. The last issue contained what to me is the biggest and most unforgivable mistake an author can make - giving the history of Europe as a history of the universe/planet at large. It was quite clever the way he linked the history to the Tarot, but the "oh suddenly in the 60s people start using the I Ching, Buddhism and Zen" (yes he did list them seperately) pissed me off a bit, no people had been using them for THOUSANDS of years! *sigh* I expected better of Mr. Moore. Overall it did have some interesting ideas about the links between imagination and magic (and makes me wonder how come Alan gets invited to loads of science festivals!) but I just couldn't get past the Western bias. Overall I did enjoy it though and it was nice to sit and read all in one go on a sunday morning.
