  2. Wonderful Mark! Congratulations. Really great to see your fantastic work on the internet.

    Comment by Tima — September 9, 2007 @ 12:54 pm

  3. This is soooooo great! I love this comic strip.

    Comment by L — December 18, 2007 @ 8:53 am

  4. I have a suggestion for you. For your next comic, can you do your next comic on how Prometheus gets on the rock? Like how he gives humans fire and how the titans tie him up…

    PS What software do you use to make your comics, I want to make my own comics too. I have tried comic life, its pretty cool.

    Thanks Mr. Weinstein!

  5. That would be an interesting story. Maybe I can do a flashback once in a while…if I can think of something funny, that is!
    I use Photoshop (I scan the black line in and I color it).

  6. Dear Mark,

    I’m a big fan of your comic and have never missed one since the day I found it!!

    A few minutes ago, I made a Facebook Group for Prometheus fans, just to show that ofcourse we are proud. I used the image of Prometheus and some info from your site as the description.

    I don’t want to violate any of your Copyright terms, just want to show my respect. So please look at the page and let me know if I’ve gone too far.

    Also, you’re welcome to take over the ownership of the group and change the title or decorate it the way you please. Last but not least: Let me know if you want me to delete it (I hope not!)

    So here’s the URL:

    Keep up the good work!

  7. Hi Mark,

    Brilliant work. Have never missed your strips. Will tag you on my blog. This is brilliant work again, keep the livers flowing. 🙂

  8. It’s fairly unlikely, but are you the Mark Weinstein who lived in El Sobrante a million years ago — that is, the one I shared most of my childhood with?

    You will have to be about fifty-three for this to be true.

    Comment by Lucy Kemnitzer — October 16, 2008 @ 10:40 am

  9. No, I never lived in El Sobrante, and I’m only(!) 45!

    Comment by prometheuscomic — October 16, 2008 @ 8:35 pm

  10. This is great stuff! I actually study liver regeneration and in our field the ‘myth of Prometheus’ is a big deal. I never thought this could be so funny. Can I use a couple of your comic strips in my talks?


    Comment by Udayan Apte — November 25, 2008 @ 2:51 pm

  11. Sure, UA, be my guest.
    I never knew the liver could actually regenerate! I wonder if the ancient Greeks were aware of this. Anyone out there know the answer?

    Comment by prometheuscomic — November 25, 2008 @ 5:20 pm

  12. Any ideas come to mind about any of the other prisoners-of-Zeus suffering cruel and unusual punishment (Tantalus, Sisyphus)? I’d think it would be easy to combine Sisyphus since both their punishments involve big rocks.

    Comment by Snowbody — December 31, 2008 @ 6:43 pm

  13. Maybe Sisyphus could roll the rock with Prometheus chained to it and kill two birds with one stone.

    Comment by prometheuscomic — January 2, 2009 @ 12:27 pm

  14. These are brilliant! Its amazing that you can deliver so consistently with a guy chained to a rock having his entrails eaten by an eagle, or at least that’s how I tried to explain it to my wife. “That doesn’t sound too funny” was her response. But it is!

    Comment by Michael — January 29, 2009 @ 5:46 pm

    • Michael is having the same problem as me. By the way, please no more anal jokes. All the rest of them are funny, but on the one where the eagle said “14 want you to have colonscopy,” you showed me what it means. And holy s*** that’s disgusting! (well it’s not so gross I’m probing myself right now i swear) Post this on Failpix.net, or is it .com?

      Comment by tungstenisgood — June 1, 2009 @ 1:33 am

  15. That’s the usual response from people who actually read it!

    Comment by prometheuscomic — January 30, 2009 @ 5:52 am

  16. Genius! May I post a strip on our fusion website? Links back and all. Our site exists to support scientists who are working with aneutronic fusion (no neutrons, no radioactivity). In the improbable, but not impossible event that they succeed, it will be stealing starlight from the gods. We should be prepared for the consequences. : )

    Comment by Rezwan — January 30, 2009 @ 7:09 pm

  17. This is really great stuff; again, my ex wife does not apreciate. I was about to suggest Sisyphus but I saw someone else got there first.
    I’ve nicked a couple of your strips
    and again
    (I hope you don’t mind) and I will probably put up a link back to your page as well

  18. Thank you for visiting my website, Mark! Also, please try the poll.

    Comment by tungstenisgood — August 18, 2009 @ 3:07 am

  19. OK if I use your one on nausea for a talk I’m doing on same? Will give credit, of course.

    Comment by mary fairbanks — March 22, 2010 @ 7:03 pm

  20. I just wanted to ask you if I could use a stripe for a project, were learning about greek mythology and I wanted to use in the newspaper project we have. I will mention to the class and teacher that the comics are yours. Email me soon, Thank you.

    Comment by Justin — April 1, 2010 @ 12:46 am

  21. I am going to send you another edited comic! It’s called Sauder Power!!

    Comment by Epic Fail — June 27, 2010 @ 4:19 pm

  22. Hi Mark,
    How about to translate your Prometheus in Greek.

  24. Hi Mark! It is alwys a great pleasure to visit your cartoon and enjoy some Prometheus humor. Great work. As I told you in my previous posts I work on liver regeneration and count on the ‘promethean myth’ (which is actually true) that liver regenerates. We are trying to harness the power of liver to regenerate to treat various liver diseases. May be this can give you new ideas to come up with new prometheus cartoons. Good luck!

  26. Mark,

    Sometimes when cartoonists “retire”, their work is rerun (started over) in their “member newspapers” from the beginning. Charles Schulz (Peanuts) and Lynn Johnston (For Better or Worse) are two good examples. I’m a new reader of Ekathimerini (English version) this year. Are there any plans to rewind the clock for Prometheus and start over with your first cartoon again? I sure hope so. It’s working out very well for Charlie Brown and Snoopy.

    All the Best,

  27. I’m not sure about the comic strip economy. If Charles Schulz started his career today, he’d be in similar straits. Is there a way to put all the strips together into an omnibus?

    Comment by http://ajaban.com — September 6, 2011 @ 3:32 pm

    • Only if I find a publisher to do it–I self published some books collecting the first year’s worth of strips (you can find it on the “Prometheus in print” page at the right). But I haven’t sold enough to break even, yet.
      (I did contact a publisher several months ago, but I haven’t gotten a response yet)

      Comment by prometheuscomic — September 6, 2011 @ 7:52 pm

      • Ah yes. The economics of publishing in today’s world. Crazy. I feel we are finding our equilibrium as a civilization. There are some talented people (like you!) making cool works of art/social commentary. Which you make available for free on your site, and open source. So how do you get rewarded for your efforts? The self-publishing route is only useful if you’re over a certain level of visibility. I suppose you could do a kickstarter to guarantee a minimum of purchases before publishing (perhaps a “best of”). What kind of aggregating services are out there? Back in the old days, people got their comics all together, with big specials on Sunday. Is there an amazon of comics now, where you can see the best all in one place, and start to see the connections between them? And the rankings? That would help you find and build your audience. And an aggregator might have ways to set things up for products. I long for a world in which folks who generate creative content can feel confident to sit there and work on their creativity, while someone else is making sure they get exposure and helping connect consumers with their work – so that they get a flow of income in proportion to the impact their work has on others. Something that’s fair and that ends up effectively rewarding the good stuff and getting people to focus on the important things. “Sustainable art”. Instead we live in a weird world where mechanical reproduction devalues humans, and also, an artist is worth more dead than alive – at least his works sell for a lot more.
