University student Sophie Bangs has become a living myth... granted the power of the mystic warrior Promethea. Now she's exploring the perilous upper levels of the Immateria for answers about her past, future, and life itself...

Certainly likely to be a hit with students who are up themselves, book four in the Promethea series is about as arrogant as you can get without seeming rude.

Alan Moore spins a tale that is more transparent than transcendental. The main character, Sophie Bangs (Does she? Snigger!) is so lightweight that the events that unfold around her are really quite sad - like a self important daddy's girl who needs a good slapping.

The artwork is extremely engaging on the other hand And, though I hate to admit it, some of Moore's ideals are intriguing. It's just a shame that his main character is such an insufferable pain. Do you remember at University that one girl who everyone wanted to slap? The one who was self important and seemed to look down at everyone? Well that's how Bangs (snigger!) comes across for the most part.

If you've not being following this series, now is not the time to start. If you've bought the other three volumes chances are you'll lap this up also - more fool you. Very average!
