Materiality is a certain lens, experience is another, and a truth beyond mere words is the synthesis of the eternal dialectic of humans and their interaction with reality.
It's an entertaining text book on symbols and how even though we ignore them these days, they are as relevant as ever since we've only really changed in the quantifiable and measurable ways that science has introduced. The more fundamental question of the human experience necessitates the more creative brushstroke with which we must each paint the picture of the human journey. This series is most people's first set of water colors for that attempt at describing our journeys. Invaluable.
In the 5th and final book, now being published in comic-book format, Promethea brings about the end of the world. But remember it is Alan Moore's version of the end of the world--so it may not be what you expect. Remember, too, the kind of generous swan-songs Moore did when he closed out his runs on Swamp Thing and other books he cared out. We may be in for something amazing in the final volume.
Even if you looked at Promethea when it first came out and found it confusing or preachy, I recommend taking a second look at it in collected form. It rewards close and repeated readings. And the examinations of occult theories turn out to be, for the most part, a metaphor for creativity and growth.
The art was fantastic, which of course added to the Promethea experience.

Taken as a stand alone book, this could be seen as tough to swallow. In the wider scheme of things, it's a gem. I'm impressed that the collaborators had both the guts to attempt this and the flair to pull it off.
Read it and consider yourself initiated.
In many respects it is a treatise on creativity, imagination and "magic"
The artwork is incredible and really works well
With Moore's writing.
