  • One of my favorite comic series, and I ve read it at least 2 3 times before this, so I m rather surprised that I haven t made some comment about it here on yet I think this is probably my favorite comic work by Mike Carey, which is saying quite a bit, as he s also done Crossing Midnight and unwritten The tone of the series is very similar to Sandman I don t mean that in any derogatory or derivative way Though I have a hard time imagining how a comparison to Sandman could be derogatory, now that [...]


  • LUCIFER MORNINGSTAR Most of us know him as the Prince of Hell, formerly the angel Samael, proud Lightbringer of the Heavens But you might as well include the first title as a thing of the past, because apparently Lucifer has resigned Yes, folks, you heard that right he s quit.That s at least according to the canon of Gaiman s phenomenal graphic novel series, The Sandman Establishing a continuity with Gaiman s modern interpretation of the Devil, Mike Carrey crafts this spin off following Lucifer [...]


  • Lucifer, Vol 1 is not the best graphic novel I ve read in the last year or so and not the worst The artwork and production are, as one would expect from Vertigo, top notch The stories included are good, but nothing like the other stuff I ve been lucky enough to encounter in the last few months Lucifer as a character well, it s complicated, but not complicated enough to compel me to read the whole series Still, there s a lot of potential for the retired prince of Hell At times, I found him arbitr [...]


  • Hits the ground running A good start and getting stronger and intriguing every time I turn the page Lucifer is far devilish than I could have imagined.


  • Very promising startGaiman s work have tons of his weirdness and charm and it s hard to write spin off to his series and not look pale in comparison but so far it seems that Lucifer has potential to be as good if not better than Sandman.Illustrator manages to maintain similar style to Sandman but with detailed illustrations.I think that this is how Sandman series should have looked This doesn t apply to last issue in this volume who s illustrations are just as bad as Sandman at it s worst.


  • I recently reread Sandman, and while I do love it for its own sake, I must confess that my real reason for trekking through Gaiman s epic was to get to Carey s equally majestic, albeit much less praised, story Frankly, I m not sure why that is, as in many ways, I think Lucifer surpasses its origin story Both boast rich, and mostly independent cosmologies, but whereas for a significant part of its run, Sandman exists as a framework for Gaiman to write any kind of story he wants, Lucifer is surpri [...]


  • The art in the first half has a very painterly look to it as if it s all been coloured in watercolour paint which adds an airy, breezy quality to the pages Which is a fascinating counterpoint to the menace that lies just beneath the surface of the interactions between characters.The actual questing and action are almost beside the point in this book or at least for me, they re not terribly compelling, compared with the mythology of heaven, hell, the world and humanity that Carey teases out over [...]

  • I really truly enjoy Mike Carey s works I just found this so boring Which is guess is consistent, since I found Preludes Nocturnes boring tooI don t know what I m missing here, but everything read flat for me And I know Mike Cary can plot out excitement and write complex characters from having loved The Unwritten, Vol 1 Tommy Taylor and the Bogus Identity andThe Girl With All The Gifts, but this just didn t do it for me Oh well.


  • man i am so glad i read this now and not ten years agoten years ago i would ve known that this series is well liked and highly acclaimed and i would ve picked up the next volume because it s supposed to be good right and the library has it i cannot waste this comics opportunityhappily i am now old and curmedgeonly enough to know that life is too short to read things i don t like unless the rest of the series features an abrupt tonal shift and feel free to tell me if it does i care far too much a [...]


  • I keep picking this up and reading it again because I forgot that I had already read it Now it is on my read list.


  • I think my major gripe was the inconsistency I wish writers would not throw in some new rule right when a character needs the change You create a world, stick to your own rules Creativity is great but attempt some type of reasoning or smoothness Otherwise, I liked this, holds a lot of promise Lucifer is an extremely interesting character.



  • Lucifer is a graphic novel that s a spin off from Gaiman s incredibly popular Sandman series As such, it shares a lot in common with Gaiman s re envisioning of mythology In The Sandman Seasons of Mist , Lucifer resigned from his post in Hell, had his wings cut off by Dream, and retired to host a nightclub called Lux where Lucifer plays his own piano This book and series picks up where that left off in a story arc called The Morningstar Option , opening with a visit from Amenadiel, an angel of th [...]


  • 30 December 2012Rating 1 2I really wanted to like Lucifer, Vol 1 Devil in the Gateway than I did Perhaps I m too simpleminded to grasp its appeal because it has mostly glowing reviews Alas, I m a dumdum and did not enjoy it as I wish I had It sounded so promising A spinoff of the Lucifer created by the almighty Neil Gaiman in The Sandman.There were parts in the first and last story that were interesting, but the writing felt mostly contrived It takes big cajones to take on the task of writing a [...]


  • Re read this last evening June 18, 2013 just for the hell of it heh Good stories with nice art.I especially liked the Bolton art from the first story.Although using characters from the pages of Sandman, Carrey manages to weave original tales that transcend its origins He characterizes Lucifer very well, he s an arognat ex angel which likes to order people around but you still can t keep from liking him.I would lov to see how a meeting between him and Constantine would work out two badasses out b [...]


  • This review is for all 11 volumes of Mike Carey s Lucifer, a side quel to Neil Gaiman s Sandman.Neil Gaiman gave Carey a very difficult task Sandman Season of Mists leaves Lucifer in a very strange place, and I really couldn t imagine what would happen from there on Carey starts off aping Gaiman s style in the first arc, and that doesn t work well But after that he breaks free of Gaiman s shadow and starts telling his own story, and it turns out to be a unique and compelling tale in its own righ [...]

  • Mike Carey really knows how to write about magic There are 2 storylines in this book The first is kind of lackluster and slow burning, without a huge payoff But it s clear that we re just getting started The second arc really takes off with a fantasy flare, showing just how sinister and deceitful Lucifer can be Without Hell to manage, he s become a selfish, blonde, single minded monster in a sharp suit After all the fables that have been told about the devil, somehow this one still feels fresh L [...]


  • Z vedlej postavy hlavn m hrdinou Hrdinou no, jak se to vezme P i ten jsem m l celou dobu deja vu a inspirace Sandmanem jsem se ani na konci se itu nezbavil Oproti snov mu bohu chyb poetika a i nr komiksu tu nen upln vyu it Je to ale prvn d l a potenci l tu je I prvn mu Sandmanovi jsem dal jen t i hv tdy Douf m, e se autor v pokra ov n tro ku odv e Lucifer m charakter, jeho postav m bav a i p b hy jsou zaj mav , ale p ekro it sv j st n bude t k.


  • This book was tough for me My favorite story of the three was the last one, the one shot called Born with the Dead Enjoyable throwback to classic horror comics from shops like EC in the 40s Engaging little story I found the other two stories in the volume a lot less compelling I m just not very interested in heavy mythology and mysticism The sections where that was laid on thick were a tough slog At points my interest dipped almost to zero.The art in the middle section, A Six Card Spread, was go [...]


  • This was a great start to this series I don t know how I didn t know there was a spin off series about Lucifer from Sandman, but am so glad it was introduced to me, and the first volume loaned to me Lucifer was always a really interesting character in Sandman, and it was nice to get an introduction into a series about just him The various issues in this volume were all unique and interesting It reminded me of Sandman in the way the stories we re all very different and didn t quite allow me to ge [...]


  • It takes some arrogance, worthy of the Prince of Lies himself, to claim, as this book does, that the book is based on characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg I would think that, at the very least, John Milton might have some prior claim on the creation of Lucifer, the fallen angel, but in the legal shenanigans of the comic world, what that claim is actually revealing is that this graphic novel is a spin off from Gaiman s incredibly popular Sandman series As such, it sh [...]

  • I ve been reading this series since a friend loaned the whole collection to me about three months ago It s profoundly satisfying Not only is Mike Carey an exceptional storyteller I m also a fan of his Unwritten series , but he weaves an enormous amount of diverse mythology into a complex arc Basically perfectly His characters are superb sympathetic, alarming, funny, stubborn and striving for selfhood in the fiercest way The slant on theology is fascinating The artwork is stunning, and subtly app [...]


  • my bro gave it to me for my b day gaiman s incarnation of lucifer as a piano bar ownerassic there were three stories and i liked the first one the most then i got sort of confused i think because there was a card playing themei am befuddled by cards i think mike carey did really well with the characterization and there were some amazing representations in the art it s amazing how much you want to like lucifer when you read something like this but you re reading happily and all of a sudden you re [...]


  • Holy moly, this was a great first volume to a series.Mike Carey piqued my interest with his work on current comic Unwritten , so I thought I should give his old opus a go Following in the literary comic style of Gaiman s Sandman, Lucifer is a good slow burn Every bit of dialogue, every character detail, every relationship is important The world lives and breathes, and Heaven and Hell have never been believable to me.And yet, this volume couldn t be exciting The stakes are high The creator has [...]


  • I had expected to like this book It was talky without being especially profound, often falling to the old comic book error of describing something in detail in the caption which is pictured in the artwork Carey does a pretty good job in making Lucifer an interesting character, but most of the book focuses on other minor characters who just aren t that interesting I got the rest of the trades cheaply so I plan on giving the series a few chances since others reviews have been mostly positive.


  • I like this series so far Wish I spoke German of that s what Maze is speaking I can t wait to see where this series goes I do love the TV show as well The part from Sandman was interesting, but the divination cards that basically were alive were pretty amazing I think that it would be cool if that is an event they come back to Probably not, but I thought it was pretty awesome If the series stays that good it will be amazing.
