Overview

The Prince of Darkness is missing, and from the look of things he's not coming back. Blind, crippled, and without a penny to his name, the onetime ruler of Hell is now a wizened, unkempt old man trapped in a small town where sinister forces torment him at every turn and nothing is as it seems. He has no memory of how he got here, no hope of escape, and no way to track down his child—the only entity capable of preventing the end of the world.

At the same time, a police officer in Lucifer's adopted hometown of Los Angeles is about to lose everything he holds dear. Desperate to find a reason for his suffering, Detective John Decker is drawn into a shadowy conspiracy whose widely varied members share a single common purpose: to kill Lucifer Morningstar.

With monsters and magicians from every plane of reality set against him, can the Lightbringer heal his broken mind and body and regain his wrongful place in the cosmos?

Acclaimed author Dan Watters (The Shadow, Deep Roots) and the incredible art team of Max and Sebastian Fiumara (All-Star Batman, The Amazing Spider-Man, Abe Sapien) begin an all-new chapter in the saga of one of the Sandman Universe's most mesmerizing characters in Lucifer Vol. 1: The Infernal Comedy—from the mind of New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman!

While it was kinda annoying having a repeat story (the first story in this volume is also the first story in The Dreaming Vol. 1), I enjoyed this volume. Now, I haven't read any of the Sandman series (other than The Dreaming), so I know I missed a lot of references, but I got most of it, and I know how to google haha. The art was gorgeous, the story was intriguing, and the characters were interesting- William Blake was especially good, I liked him a lot. I look forward to Volume 2! #LuciferVol1theInfernalComedyTheSandmanUniverse

I found this graphic novel particularly engaging. The art was lovely and it was easy to follow as well as adding an extra dimension to the dialogue. This will be a great addition to the Sandman Universe. Thank you to NetGalley, DC Entertainment, and Vertigo for providing me with an ARC of Lucifer.

Lucifer Vol. 1 is a dark and twisted story in true Gaiman fashion. Full of legends and myths, the story finds the prince of darkness trapped and broken fighting his way back to himself. The tale begins all contorted and twisted and confusing as all get out before settling down to an entertaining story of darkness and tricks that leaves you with an aha moment as everything clicks into place. The art tends toward the macabre and fits the story perfectly. Volume 1 is an exactly start to a new storyline. My voluntary, unbiased review is based upon a review copy from Netgalley.

Having just read Volume 1 of The Dreaming, I couldn't help but notice that Lucifer, Volume 1, starts with the same issue. I guess everything is happening in the Sandman Universe from the same origin? While that's a neat concept, I couldn't help but feel resentful about the "wasted space" in this first volume. Once past that first issue, the Lucifer story slowly starts to unwind. I felt this volume went at a good pace, and had several twists and turns over the 200-page span of the book. There are some interesting characters along the way: William Blake, for instance, rolling around on a motorized scooter, and other "friends" that Lucifer has picked up through the ages. And, of course, it wouldn't be Lucifer if he didn't defy his father and play some part in a rebellion. I'll be returning for volume 2 to see where this goes.

This book is amazing and the drawings are breathtaking. I loved it and I want to buy the hardcover to see the drawings at their best. Highly recommended! Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.
