Promethea No. 3

Promethea makes her usual grand entrance.


She gets an opportunity to talk to the stricken Barbara and we find out where Stacia is.

Immateria's other name is Misty Magic Land.

I love this explanation between physical magic and imagination.

Imagination is both transportive and transformative. And just like that, Promethea is in Immateria.


Sophie meets Red Riding Hood.

Red is a smoker, and on top of that, she just called Promethea a stupid bitch. Is it also safe to conclude that she lets the wolf hump her in the forest? Kidding.

Speaking of the wolf.

Reservior Dogs remember that movie?

Since this is a fairy tale world the Wolf doesn't bite - he blows.

Big deal, everybody just gets rolled around a bit. After some looking Sophie finally finds Stacia.


Hmmm, how to explain this:

promethea punching weeping gorilla

The gorilla is a modern-day fictional character called Weeping Gorilla. He's the symbolic embodiment of depression and self-pity and he's affected Stacia and he's beginning to affect Sophie. Promethea's punch can be taken as a symbolic blow against depression and negative thinking.

Promethea explains the Misty Magic Land to Stacia.

The big, bad wolf nabs Stacia.

Promethea manages to free Stacia so that they can make a run for it. I love what she has to say about the wolf.

The girls manage to imagine their way back into New York.

And with some effort Sophie manages to imagine her way back into herself.
