Promethea No. 10

Jack Faust's place . . .

filthy room

Is matched by Jack Faust's bod (but I should talk).

Okay. Are we ready? No, we are not.

Jack asks for a striptease but he gilds a story around the request. A story about the Sumerian goddess Inanna who stripped herself in order to enter the realm of another goddess Ereshkigal.

Then there is a discussion on symbolism. Jack is clearly the teacher here.

And on and on and on the striptease and the lessons go.

This panel is funny and informative and really funny.

And so it happens.

Now only is it done but it is explained. Quite wonderfully too.

When Promethea first met Faust he was quite an unsavory character. And he remains so. Unsavory, ugly, in his own words 'old and bald'. All men are like that we're all essentially unsavory. But just like Faust, we are also needed and so a trade of sorts happens. Just like Faust, our ideal attitude to all this should not be to deny who we are but to be honest and accepting about it.

Another position is tried and a reference to what I'm guessing is Tantric sex is made.

It all ends quite well for both parties.

Stacia and her comments - absolutely hilarious.

Not one punch thrown but this issue was action packed.
