Book four in the stunningly beautiful Promethea series collects issues 19-25 into this trade paper back. Alan Moore continues his story as the Prometheas Sophie and Barbara continue exploring the Immateria. There really isn't so much story as there is a whole of philosophical discussion. I was happy to see that the same artist contributes to the visuals right to the last issue. Read and admire this series; it merits your attention.

4th in the series - it's intriguing but I still haven't a clue to what's going on - but if all graphic novels are like this, I don't see why everyone is against them - they are not lightweight comics like Archie, etc.
