Santiago brought some cast away comics to the last meet up at the Mad Hatter and I lucked out with a trade paperback of Alan Moore’s “Promethia”.  I had read some Tom Strong back in the day and really liked it.  I read somewhere that Moore complained at the time that the criticism that Promethia was too philosophical was bullshit and that there were already plenty of zombie comics out there and that what the world needed was comics that refract the zeitgeist and whatnot.  I think he was probably right.

The Druid, as depicted, is your pretty much run of the mill druid.  If I had made his beard bigger you’d think he looked Moore-ish.  The one panel is actually something of a self portrait.  There’s that Frazetta influence again!
