La Muse

La Muse is a new graphic novel (well new in print form, it's been serialized online previously) written by Adi Tantimedh and drawn by Hugo Petrus (220 pages for $19.95). La Muse is Susan La Muse, an alien who's taken human form and has nth level super powers which she uses to correct the ills of our planet.

In La Muse, Adi Tantimedh fully explores what a person who has basically limitless powers could do to change the world. This graphic novel and its central character has a very liberal political activist slant, but La Muse isn't preachy, instead it's a very smart, highly entertaining graphic novel that really expands on what Alan Moore did with Miracleman years ago. Anyone who's ever read a superhero comic will appreciate how well thought out La Muse is. Alan Moore calls La Muse "wonderful" and he wouldn't lie to you, would he!?
