Sophie Bangs was a just an ordinary college student in a weirdly futuristic New York when a simple assignment changed her life forever. While researching Promethea, a mythical warrior woman, Sophie receives a cryptic warning to cease her investigations. Ignoring the cautionary notice, she continues her studies and is almost killed by a shadowy creature when she learns the secret of Promethea. Surviving the encounter, Sophie soon finds herself transformed into Promethea, the living embodiment of the imagination. Her trials have only begun as she must master the secrets of her predecessors before she is destroyed by Promethea's ancient enemy. The second slipcased, oversized collection of Alan Moore's occult masterpiece is here, collecting PROMETHEA #13-24! The story begins as Promethea and Sophie embark on a quest to find a different sort of magic, leaving Sophie's friend Stacia behind as a new, temporary Promethea! And this untried hero has her hands full as the forces of Hell take control of New York's mayor. As a bonus, this volume includes an extensive gallery of sketches, developmental art and more.
