World-Class Weirdo

Comic Book Club

Comic Book Club returns, with a look at a work by legendary writer Alan Moore. This one’s “Promethea” (1999-2005), a strange mixture of Wonder Woman and mysticism and tarot cards and… well, there’s a lot. We discuss the amazing visuals, coloring, and lettering, and ponder the difference between appreciating a work of art and being entertained.

(Ideally you’d read Promethea Book 1 and Promethea Book 2 before listening, but the choice is yours.)

Comic Book Club Jason Snell with Lisa Schmeiser, Monty Ashley, Chip Sudderth, Erika Ensign and Tony Sindelar
