Absolute Promethea first look courtesy JH Williams III
Over on his blog, JH Williams reveals what we’d all been suspecting: there shall be an Absolute Promethea from DC Wildstorm in October 2009, as confirmed tonight by the DC solicits that have just been released.

Like I said, it comes as no surprise that we’re going to be getting the Absolute treatment for Promethea. Indeed, looking at the recent year end figures across various blogs, the Absolute volumes and similar very expensive single items are the thing that make DC’s dollar share top the charts even when they’re way behind Marvel in terms of market share. So that’s V For Vendetta and Promethea at least this year, with the Absolute Death being prepared. I’d be expecting (absolutely) everything high profile that DC has done over the last few decades to be getting the absolute treatment over the coming years, after all, it’s a very nice little earner.
