A war is brewing in heaven and it is spilling out onto the Earth as well. this impacts some people and allows them to see what is going on, much to their detriment. In some cases this means that they find themselves only being chased by what we might refer to as possessed people, but in other cases they find their lives pulled apart by forces outside of what they can see. The only thing they know is that the war seems to be going bad and that Uriel, now in a position of power, is on the move.
And they seem to know where that move has taken him.
This is an advance piece leading to a movie that is supposed to come out in January. the reason i know that is because the book is littered with this idea and, if it is done well, it will be a good showing. I personally liked how the story advanced and how it played off the war with the angels and the ripples vreated here on Earth, plus I liked the prophet idea. The story was moving at a good pace because of this, was violent in certain parts, and was pretty interesting to follow. The only thing I did not like was the fact that filler slipped in here and there. This seems to be a comic problem, however, and it happens here as well. Monsters chasing people, people chasing people, people running - an implied sort of flight would work well. Still, this does not hurt the stroy enough to make it seem bad. If anything, it creates only minor ripples.
The one thing I found odd was that the collected volume came out before the comics finished their run. This means that the movie must be a "go," and people wanting to know about the movie may want to see this. Since I do not know about the project too much I do not know what this advanced look will mean, but it is interesting and I thought it worth picking up. If anything, it passes a day or so with the blood of angels and people alike, making some fun Christmas reading.
You have to love those wars in heaven.
