Promethea II

Promethea--Moore's imaginative faculty incarnated as Superheroine--begins breaking the rules her predecessors have established, and quickly kicks demonic ass. Now she's on a quest to learn Magic, and encounters Tantric mysticism, the Kabbalah, and Tarot along the way.

I've not seen a more evocative tour through Tarot symbolism--nowhere in Mathers or Crowley or Fortune, nowhere in the Alchemical literature or Eliphas Levi. Great fun! And enlightening, to boot.
