Promethea Absolute - One for the want list ... or maybe not.

Over on his blog JH Williams puts up the cover image to the upcoming Promethea Absolute edition.

Now, I've tended to shy away from those huge hardback slabs of comics - with the sheer size of the things making it difficult to actually read the things comfortably. But of all the Absolutes so far, this is the one that might make me change my mind, since JH Williams' art seemed perfectly suited to the vast ideas that Alan Moore put into every issue. Very early on in Promethea they practically gave up on the idea of a standard page layout and Williams' art just got better and better.

Nope, scratch that. Just looked over on the FPI bog here and found out it's just the first of three volumes. Don't know why I hadn't figured that out already, but now I see it's going to cost me at least £150 I'm not quite so excited about it.

  1. I read the first few volumes and really enjoyed it, but then it went a bit too mental for my liking and I completely lost track!
