Alan Moore's Glory (2001 mini-series) #0-2 [SET] — The Seventh Dagger (All Variant Covers)

$20.00

Much like how Alan Moore wrote Supreme as an allegory for Superman, Glory was intended as his version of Wonder Woman.

Taking the Greek mythology aspect of Wonder Woman and mixing it into Glory's origin.

Alan Moore would also explore magic in this series, much like he did with Promethea. 

Because of the bankruptcy of Awesome Comics in 2000, may of Alan Moore's revamps are left unfinished. 

The Glory stories are the only ones where we can assume Alan Moore addressed with his America's Best Comics' Promethea series. 

There are many debates how much Promethea is based on Glory.

Alan Moore was working on Glory in Avatar press as well in 2001, which continued the Awesome story series by reprinting issue zero and then stopping at issue #2. 

Legal reasons are believed to be the reason Glory had to be canceled once more. 

For that short period in which Moore was working on both Glory and Promethea, the stories were different.

 

 

Collecting the 3-issue mini-series, All Variant covers.
