Stunning! The art is some of the finest I've seen in any graphic novel, the prose is often equally beautiful, and the stories are all interesting. I hope to see more graphic novels from these guys.

A subtle and complex read with fantastic artwork that takes pleasure in turning our myths about angels upside-down.
