Synopses & Reviews
Sophie Bangs was a normal college student until a simple class assignment resulted in her being transformed into Promethea, a two-thousand-year-old mythical warrior woman. In the second installment of the series that Entertainment Weekly has given an A-, Sophie continues to learn more about her powers, abilities, and predecessors. But with many answers still missing, Sophie must fend off an attack by a horde of demons and discover and defeat the secrets behind the sinister cult The Temple if she is ever to live up to the full potential of Promethea.
"Standard superhero fare (crime fighting, slugfests, etc.) takes a backseat to philosophical and moral issues here....Promethea may appeal to the normally comics-eschewing fans of the wildly popular Sandman series." Gordon Flagg, Booklist
In this collection, Sophie follows her recently killed mentors, Promethea andBarbara, into the afterlife, where they visit heaven and hell and meet famousoccult figures.
