Originating from the pages of the multiple award winning anthology, Negative Burn. The Apparition Omnibus features the Archangel Adriel in various stories of spiritual warfare, human suffering, physical struggles and redemption - A boy abandoned by his parents and left to die in the wilderness; the last day in the life for a suffering cancer patient; a girl struggling through the heartbreak of a lost love; a homeless man addicted to drugs. These are just some of the people whose lives and souls have been touched and protected by the Archangel Adriel. He is a warrior in the never-ending battle of spiritual warfare with other angels. A war that exists unknowingly to normal humans in a realm that is unseen by the naked eye.
This collection features all of the critically acclaimed short stories taken from Negative Burn, as well as the entire original Caliber Comics series. All written by James Pruett (X-Men Unlimited, Black Mist, Kaos Moon) the stories are illustrated by Gene Gonzales, Craig Brasfield, Matthew Dow Smith and Tyler Bishop with a beautiful painting cover by Michael Gaydos, two time Eisner Award Nominee for his work on Jessica Jones/Alias for Marvel.
