Prometheus Eternal Illustrates Artistic Inspiration

Prometheus Eternal 1 Bill Sienkiewicz
Bill Sienkiewicz

Creative inspiration is a tricky subject. It flows neither smoothly nor orderly. Ideas can come from anywhere, bounce off associations and take on entirely new shapes before settling into any definitive form. The process never exists in a vacuum; there are always other works which provide kindling for the imagination. In short, it is a fluid, discursive experience. It is also one of the reasons that creators are always well-served by searching for inspiration outside of their comfort zones. As Wesley Craig advised at last year’s New York Comic Con, aspiring artists need to “get their heads out of comics.” The recent one-shot, Prometheus Eternal takes this lesson to heart. A co-production between the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Locust Moon Press, its seed is the museum’s painting Prometheus Bound by Peter Paul Rubens and Frans Snyders. The museum and publisher gathered together a diverse group of comic talent to explore both the specific painting and the myth of Prometheus in general. The result is a fascinating collection of reflections on the creative process and the eternal resonance of ancient myths.

LOOK NO FURTHER.  

HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.

 
Tyler’s Recommendations: 
Island #4
“I’m going to keep recommending Island until it becomes the sales sensation it deserves to be.
This month we get stories from Graham, Farel Darymple, and Gael Bertrand. Every issue thus far has been a delight, showcasing talented creators that have flown under the mainstream radar. I love the anthology format as well, with fewer creators telling longer stories, it feels less like snippets and more like chapters of individual tales.”

INDUBITABLE ISSUES!

HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.

 
Patrick wants you to throw yourself into the world of…
prophet-43Prophet Vol 3 Empire
If we are going to follow the logic that the most important part of science fiction is world building then Prophet should be one of the greatest sci-fi stories of all time because the world building here is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Brandon Graham, Simon Roy and Giannis Milonogiannis continue to expand the scope of the universe with a fantastic take on the biological development of sentient beings in outer space and how that changes from world to world not only in development but how those being interact with one another. Roy and Milonogiannis art continues to astound as does the level of imagination shared with them and author Graham while up and coming creator Farel Dalrymple also get’s a crack at the mythology as this title continues to be the book to watch for new talent. If the universe is ever expanding then Prophet’s space adventure is the perfect approximation of what that would mean in terms of a narrative story about space exploration. The variations are infinite.
