    1. The story is painfully slow and boring. A lot of detail tarot/cabala on nearly every page that is laborious and boring. BORING.

    2. HolyAlan Moore is a genius, yeah yeah we know. But have you read Promethea? This series has it all, Superheroes, mystical quests, the Apocalypse. I mean THIS is why we read: To be taken to another level of insight, bringing us closer to humanity. Right?Read it.

    3. How hard to rate this final book in the Promethea series, but at the same time I had the advantage of having read "Tom Strong" and "America's Best" comics, so I could link the events with what happened here. Honestly, for people who only read the "Promethea" series, they will be way clueless at the beginning and the end of the book. Since, if only you have read "Tom Strong", you will be familiar with the character and his unusual family, and also the whole "end of the world" deal, I understood i [...]

    4. Alan Moore looks over, from his computer, at the reader with a hidden grin in the finale of his "Promethea" series that, while, of course, it had to end here, has had me in a sort of depression for a couple days now, knowing any further adventures in this universe are over. The last volume follows on from the last and shows the reader what the end of the world looks like--in metaphysical and physical sense. This big idea opens the gates for a lot of crazy, from the artwork, to the resurgence of [...]

    5. I honestly think the ending of this series was one of the most mind bending pieces of reality blurring literature I've ever read. No, I'll go further. It's one of the most mind bending pieces of reality blurring literature that has ever been published. Reading this, along with Borges' Labyrinths, absolutely changed my view on what literature can do. The slow gradual progression through the Occultist, Kabbalistic adventure of the earlier volumes, to this, the 'Godhead' volume, felt to me like bei [...]

    6. This series by Alan Moore and JH Williams has been one of my favorite comics ever and this final collection is no different.The previous volumes were guided introductions to magic and the kabbalah. This last volume sees Promethea presiding over the Apocalypse while the government and a a super-team try and stop her. Moore's vision of the end of the world is actually quite uplifting and inspiring; probably not something you ever expected to read.As with the whole series, JH Williams' and Mick Gra [...]

    7. Should've liked this one: Alan Moore + cool combination of ancient mythologies + killer art. Sadly, the stunning drawings are all that's worthwhile here - Promethea is crushed under the weight of Moore's worst tendencies: pages upon pages of masturbatory mysticism, some really weird/gross sex scenes, and aimless plotting. The story itself (college student Sophie Bangs becomes the reincarnation of a mythical goddess whose destiny is to bring about the end of the world) should have really been a l [...]

    8. WOW!! That's all just WOW!! I think my mind blew a gasket reading this final volume. It's just so true! This is it our life it's happening now and it's our story to tell!! And nothing's stopping us but our own imagination's limits!! I bawled my eyes out, and then vowed to start doing everything I ever wanted to do, right that minute!!Then I watched some bad reality TV so umm guess my wand (will) and sword (strength) need a little discipline. ;)I wouldn't convert to Kabbalah or practice Tarot due [...]

    9. So Promethea has finally delivered the end of the world. (view spoiler)[Wow, the "post-apocalyptic" world is a world full of hippies. But yes it is understandable, because you know, world peace and utopia man. (hide spoiler)] I may not have taken drugs but the last chapter art is obviously drug-induced. Hehe. With an unconventional story but nonetheless a straightforward plot, the whole Promethea series is an exciting and magical trip.

    10. This run seemed bolted on to the main plot line which, IMO, was over at the end of volume 4 (issue 25). For those who are reading for their interest in magick and qabala, rather than for Alan Moore fandom, you can safely stop there and skip this one.

    11. For me, there was quite a long gap between reading Book 4 and Book 5, as the library didn't have the last volume on the shelves for awhile.With "Promethea", Alan Moore has written the most metaphysical graphic novel series ever created. Delving into such heavy topics as the nature of human consciousness and our perception of reality, to the very nature of time and the origins of religion. While this is all very thought-provoking, it sometimes doesn't make for the most entertaining of stories. Bu [...]

    12. How to put my feelings about this book into words? First off, if I could give it 4.5 stars, I would. I wouldn't call it "amazing", but it's given me enough to think about that I want to say more than "really liked it".Second, I'm not sure how to describe the mystical psychobabble that takes up most of the last 1/3 of the series. On the one hand, it was kind of nice to have a superheroine who wasn't just fighting Bad Guy du Jour, but on the other, it just felt like endless exposition and no story [...]

    13. So Moore has finally lost it.Don't get me wrong. I have nothing against using mystic beliefs to tell or to structure a story. I found Phillip K. Dicks idea to let the I-Ging decide which way a story goes, to be a brilliant experiment.I just don't like being force-fed a stew of esoteric belief systems with the occasional mushroom here and there. Moore doesn't leave even the smallest room for ironic distance, so I can't shake the feeling he really beliefs in all that stuff to be the gospel truth. [...]

    14. Brilliant meta-conclusion to the 30 episodes of Promethea: Alan Moore's superheroine come to simultaneously save and destroy the world. Firmly connected in the real world, yet floating through it irreverently with fantastic disregard for convention, this comic is quite the magical trail, tipping its hat to Jung, Crowley, Heisenberg, Hofstadter, other brilliant thinkers. All these people including Moore managed to synthesise new elements from older traditions, Moore has a lot of fun doing so. I'v [...]

    15. My friend Matt Harris sums it up rather well in his own review but what I will add to it is that this has been a very enjoyable series, Williams artwork in particular a revelation and perfect mind meld to the words of Moore. And given the world events going on at the time of reading (Brexit, Trump, ISIS, shootings, etc) this certainly made the real world feel like Armageddon was/is fast approaching.

    16. For a series that had such great potential at the start, it ends somewhat decently, but failed to deliver with the volumes in between. I had so hoped that this would have been Moore's "Sandman", but in the end it was nothing more than his mystic babbling… It seemed to be more of a recollection of an acid trip - than a story. For me, the main interest of the series was the outstanding artwork by J.H. Williams III and Mick Gray. The art was consistently brilliant throughout, and the page designs [...]

    17. Alucinantemente impresionante e impresionantemente alucinante. Escriba lo que escriba seguro me quede corto, más con el sueño que tengo encima. El último capítulo casi merece 5 estrellas por sí solo, nomás que termino amarreteando en el total por cuestiones técnico-circunstanciales, y porque le encontré un par de pifies a la versión española. Cuando pueda le escribo una reseña más elaborada y toda la bola. Pero según Promethea, ya lo hice, o siempre estaré por hacerlo. Así que a f [...]

    18. I really liked this series. The themes might not be for everyone, but then again, nothing is. If nothing else, it's thought-provoking and very effective (not to mention beautiful) as a graphic novel. The final issue is pure genius. Highly recommended.

    19. this whole series runs a great fantasy for me, but alan moore really drops it in the end. basically the character of promethea loses her voice and you are suddenly just reading alan moore's philosophical masturbation

    20. Oh my god, I was wrong to give the first three volumes only four stars. My first impression was that, while the Promethea series was subtle and funny and totally enjoyable, it felt perhaps a little thin, a touch small in its ambition. Big mistake. Now that I've finished reading volumes 4 & 5 (which I could scarcely tear myself away from) I see that those small beginnings were merely the sowing of seeds in the garden of the imagination. These, then, being cultivated patiently, expertly, lovin [...]

    21. Probably one of the greatest living writers in the world speaks on the occult and the ways we can change our lives for the better.

    22. That warm feeling and smile that comes from getting exactly what you wanted out of an Alan Moore epic - Promethea exceeded my expectations on all fronts.

    23. There is something about the showman in Alan Moore (and there is a LOT of showman in him) which seems to drive him to end his stories with a bang. When I say 'a bang,' I don't mean a circus-grade tooting of horns and rattling of drums, but an earth-shattering, cataclysmic BANG of the Big variety. Look no further than his prior extended works like Swamp Thing, Marvel-/Miracleman or Watchmen for evidence. Promethea is no different, and has, in fact, told us we were heading for an apocalypse for ab [...]

    24. Wow.My mind is kind of blown. Scratch that, it is blown. Holy. Fucking. Shit. In the beginning, I was torn between giving this 4 or 5 stars, but by the third volume I knew it could only be 5 because this is amazing. "Promethea." An imaginary fictional character who manifests in reality through the artists and writers that tell her story. Obviously, the name's a feminine version of Prometheus, which means "forethought" which means "imagination". [:]Imagination tumbling, spinning is the light tha [...]

    25. In the end, this book series is truly amazing. It's a wonder that it's not analyzed and written about nearly as much as 'Watchmen' is. It takes the art and storytelling of comics to a whole new level, and utilizes the strengths and qualities of the media in a way that (to my knowledge) no other book does.Volume 5 is interesting to me because it expands the world of Promethea in a way that none of the previous books really did (even though they explain the universe), in that it brings in Tom Stro [...]
