I never really craved that kind of female friendship anyway, what is it to anyone else how many guys their slan pals screw, anyway? So Stacia has this bee hive kind of hair-do and she has a big mouth that opens wide to talk and eat a lot this is seen later with donuts. Big comic book lips, vintage style bossiness.
She pipes down to slowly “get” and demand or mourn moorw answers that the lead doesn’t possess. I mourned these girls in Sunday comics.
Absolute Promethea, Book One by Alan Moore
I always wanted Charlie to tell Peppermint Patty go run her own show. Why am I talking about Stacia for? I like her when her hair comes down. If you could see the story come down. The friends can sleep together, maybe there’s more. But I probably wouldn’t that feel that much persistent bitchiness was worth getting behind.
College student Sophie Bangs isn’t behind her anymore in the dumpster light. She’s behind the vision of Promethea. Behind the curtain in her own brain. So far the point sadly doesn’t seem to be what that is all about. So in the panel Promethea has white eyes and she’s losing Sophie.
Made up in her own Promethea vision. Stadium head gear and save the day heroics. Not doing anything, though. Not quite Promethea, not almost Sophie.
They are behind the rock concert venue where The Limp is playing with appropriate lyrics. I can hear the wah wah wah playing. Buffy would slay a lot of vampires in this behind the club dumpster. I wish Buffy was real. The bad guys are after Promethea. They are now after Sophie.
She is the new Promethea. I wish there was less representing. She wishes Promethea was real because she needs her.
She’s not doing anything. I wish there had been more longing in her visions than needing her ass saved. I always wanted to hang out with Buffy and the gang. On bad depression days I’d always watch season two episodes because that’s when the gang are best friends.
What does she have? The story goes that if you go looking for stories they will come looking for you. It has happened before. Sophie has been thinking about Promethea. People think about Promethea a lot. She is writing for college about how people think about Promethea a lot. I liked that Sophie wrote her own poem about Promethea.
It’s when she does her own thinking about her.
Absolute Promethea, Book One
According to the other Prometheas they are all watching her from the world of imagination, called Immateria and the bad guys she’s in the new stage when she is still part herself, part Promethea. I like that she doesn’t know who her Promethea is if she’s writing the story with her. Some of the other girls and one man, Bill were made into Promethea by male writers.
I loved the later chapter when they take down the ghost writers for the pseudonym for the trashy s pulp series about her. The poet that made his “muse”, the housemaid Anna, into his phantom lover from his own story ghost child and all was moving. He never loved Anna. She’s behind the vision and he doesn’t see her. My guess is that Moore really wanted to write about male fantasies imposed on women who act them out here. I don’t know because I’m not that far into the series yet there are only six comics in this collected “volume one” editionbut how much pomethea Anna, and how much was Promethea?
The Promethea girls seem to share a collected memory, yet are their own women. Some, like Margaret, embody the archetypal image more. Save them and clasp their teary eyed faces to her hoo-has. Margaret wears wispy fabric to barely cover her bosom and bottom. She wants to comfort the soldiers who really just want their mothers.
Grace Brannagh rebels against the writers of those trashy Hy Brasil warrior princess novels her breasts have never heaved, thank you very much. I love Grace because she’s her own Promethea damn the man but I suspect my favorite may be Barbara. Her introduction has been in the mortal world she’s dying by the end of what I’ve read, though.
Her Promethea imagination wasn’t a lot and hers resembled her self very much. That would be pro,ethea to explore as Sophie still wants to be Sophie and not just Promethea.
But who is Sophie, besides a promethex student in uniform of jeans and a tank top?
