Book five of the Promethea series binds together the last seven issues #26-32. You'll notice that 32 crops up a lot through the series. The story is a fitting and beautifully done conclusion. Alan Moore combined so many ideas and concepts: Kaballah, Christianity (especially the book of Revelations), Muslim beliefs, magic, Aleister Crowley, and more. My only complain was that I found the final issue to be a bit too mystical and dream like. The visual style was definitely unique, but I found it hard to read and appreciate as much as the preceding 31 issues. Still the series as a whole is enthusiastically recommended to all.

5th in the series - if all graphic novels are like this, I don't see why everyone is against them - they are not lightweight comics like Archie, etc.
