A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 280

by  in Comic News Comment

Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!

Here is a cool moment from Promethea #3, where we travel into the Misty Magic Land, along with writer Alan Moore and artist J.H. Williams…

In Promethea #3, Promethea has to go save Sophie’s friend Stacia, who has found herself trapped in the Immateria (or Misty Magic Land), which is basically the land of ideas.

The problem with being in a land of ideas is that without them being attached to you, they can get a little wild…


And after a confrontation with the wolf, they catch up with Stacia…


However, if you ran into an ironic cartoon character in a land where irony and detachment does not exist, the “plight” of a comic character can suddenly get quite serious…





I thought this was one of Moore’s most ambitious early issues of Promethea, and it worked quite well, I thought.

I love that when Promethea stops the Gorilla (which would be “the” moment), she does so using ANOTHER literary device – onomatopoeia!!!
