The diverse mythology of angels is explored in this lushly painted graphic vel from high-profile fantasy authors including Holly Black (The Spiderwick Chronicles) and Bill Willingham (FABLES). Deep in the woods outside of a magical kingdom, a strange group of faeries and forest creatures discover a nearly dead angel, bleeding and unconscious with a sword by his side. They call a tribunal to decide his fate, each telling stories that delve into different interpretations of these winged, celestial beings: tales of dangerous angels, all-powerful angels, guardian angels, and death angels, that range from the mystical to the mysterious to the macabre. This original graphic vel spotlights the painted work of award-winning artist Rebecca Guay, whose other works include the Vertigo titles Veils and Destiny: A Chronicle of Deaths Foretold, as well as World of Warcraft, Magic: The Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons.
