Sophie Bangs was a just an ordinary college student in a weirdly futuristic New York when a simple assignment changed her life forever.
Similarly, the reader of a comic book is able to scan an entire page of sequential panels at once, or flip back to the beginning of the book and re-experience the process of perception.
The comic is, in visual form, an analogy for the way consciousness creates meaning. Although the information on the pages appears to be a confused muddle when seen one piece at a time, when the puzzle is completed and the reader stands back, the face of a benevolent goddess — imagination Herself — is revealed.
Through the participation of the reader, a larger and more meaningful pattern emerges from apparent chaos. In this simple cut-and-paste activity, Moore attempts to communicate an experience of a benevolent divine consciousness, one which lovingly embraces all time and space, yet is always necessarily more than the sum of its parts.
Indeed, this also seems to be the ultimate message of the apocalypse of the imagination that Moore envisions in Promethea Although Promethea does end the world, she does not do it on a physical level; rather, her apocalypse is the paradigm-shattering experi- ence that all of being is interconnected, interdependent, and ultimately one.
Having invited the reader to sit with her by a cheery fireplace and hold her hand, she presents a series of mandalas, which are commonly used in Eastern religious art for devotional purposes. In this case, Moore seems to have chosen the circular designs for their connotations of wholeness and unity.
All is one, and all is deity, this beautiful undying fire of being that is everywhere about us, that we are. O man, O woman, know yourself, and know you are divine. Respect yourself, respect the least phenom- enon of your existence as if it were the breath of God. Know I love you. When Promethea reaches out her hand to the reader, she offers a glimpse of this interconnected perspective: Moore further includes the reader — and himself!
Yet the question remains: Such evidence suggests that for a prepared reader — one who already has interest in the art of conscious-change, if not much knowledge — Promethea can function effectively as a religious text.
I just want to tell them that that world is there, that there are a variety of ways of exploring it. To point out that territory to other people is something I feel happy about doing.
To erect a huge church there and officiate over rituals, is not. Yet in its potential use for meditation or devotion and its intent to spiritually educate, Promethea is solidly within a long tradition of sequential art and Western religious art in general.
