Promethea by Alan Moore and J.H. Williams III

Proving that not all superhero comic books have to be dull and stupid Promethea pushes the boundaries of a seemingly limited genre. The last ten issues (#13 - 23), as written by Alan Moore and penciled by J.H. Williams III, present a cosmology in comics form as the heroine, who looks like combination of Wonder Woman and a hood ornament, uses the Tarot, the Kabbalah and astrology to explore the mysteries of the universe and the meaning of life.
