Heaven's War is a fantasy graphic novel by Micah Harris and Michael Gaydos.

The story is set in 1938 and features a fictional history in the lives of three Inklings: Charles Williams (the title "Heaven's War" likely is a play on Williams's first novel, War in Heaven), Tolkien and C.S. Lewis.

Editorial synopis

1938: As the world moves toward global war, a secret angelic battle is waged in the heavenly realms to determine mankind's fate. The infamous Aleister Crowley plans to manipulate those angelic struggles and thus shape the world according to his will. Only "The Inklings" - fantasy authors J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Charles Williams - oppose him. They must decipher a landscape of sacred geometry to intercept Crowley at the threshold of heaven. And, for one of the Inklings, the pursuit will reach outside time itself.
