Swan Songs 0

Story The final volume starts off with a stand alone story called Fireside Tales,this is probably the only weak spot in the whole trade.The story only serves to give Ellaine a love intrest (the kid from Stichglass in volume 7 Exodus).Nex twe have the two part Evensong, in which lucifer prepares to leave all of creation and enter the void.The two part story really gives you the feeling that the series is coming to a close as Lucifer says his goodbyes.The Guadium Option, shows where all old gods w...

War In Heaven 0

Story This volume can be seen as similar to The Kindly Ones from The Sandman series as all the action happens here  only epilouges and tying up loose ends happen in the next volume.In the wheels of God we see Solomon dloing out more divine justice to many fimilar characters from the series.Morningstar shows the battle between the heavenly host and Lilith's army of children,this is the final battle for all of creation.We get a kind of pointless interlude in the beast cant take your call right now...
