University student Sophie Bangs has become a living myth... granted the power of the mystic warrior Promethea. Now she's on a new adventure, exploring the magical higher levels of the Immateria in search of old friends, and facing new perils...

Book three in the Promethea series is a hell of a lot more down to Earth than book 2. Sure, Alan Moore is still off on another planet, but this time around you don't have to go with him to appreciate what he is trying to achieve.

The artwork is breathtaking in places and each page has been carefully thought through. No dull, plain boxes for the main narrative to thread itself onto the page. Oh, no! Here each page has been designed to offer a little more eye candy than the one before it - there is an interesting use of panels which have been constructed to look like bubbles.

And don't worry. If you are not highbrow enough to appreciate the story, then you call always snigger at the main character's name - Sophie Bangs... That's almost rude.

A beautifully constructed book. If things carry on in this vein, then Book 4 should be very interesting...
