As I was searching for more information on Promethea I came across a very interesting essay entitled "Promethea: Comics as Spiritual Tool." In her essay, Christine Hoff Kraemer quotes Trina Robbins with Promethea is "what Wonder Woman should be if she hadn’t been destroyed by generations of idiots." I agree with this statement because Wonder Woman has the potential to be more like Promethea. Wonder Woman is strong and intelligent but her comics are filled with stereotypes that prevent her from being as mentally and physically powerful as Promethea.
Obviously Wonder Woman comics and Promethea comics are on completely different levels. Kraemer says in her essay, "While most readers are accustomed to reading comics for fast-moving plot and broadly drawn characters, these issues require slow meditation and immersion in the art." This really goes along with what we have been talking about in class because just one page alone can be analyzed for days. This comic book contains so much insight and symbolism and can almost be considered a more mature version of Wonder Woman comics. While Wonder Woman can entertain you for an hour or so, Promethea can keep you thinking for weeks and even years.
