Read full description of the books Promethea, Book Five: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 it better when I read the final issue on "Tom Strong" than here, that I think it's kinda odd since it's Promethea herself who provokes the event. Also, the characters from the team America's Best, if you haven't read the comic of that team, you again will be clueless of so many characters splashing in the story.
Another thing that I have to comment, it's that there were a lot of supportive characters without a productive purpose in the run of the series, like "The Five Swell Guys", the 2 mayors of New York, the whole deal with the Painted Doll, etc...
I am happy to have read "Promethea" since I am huge fan of Alan Moore's work, but I feel that after the masterful seven first issues of the run, the series lost track, it was floating in a huge ocean of abstract concepts and when it seems that finally the run will getting back in track, bang, it ends.
However, I am glad of having it in my collection.
