1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Mice Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER on 6 Sep 2014
Format: Paperback
The story running through issues #1-4 of Image Comics’ new series from Greg Ruka and Michael Lark is collected as Lazarus Volume 1 TP. This is an expertly written and superbly illustrated story. The setting is sketched in with a caption and a bit of dialogue here and there; no exposition or huge chunks of descriptive detail are needed for the reader to be able to read between the lines with just a glance and for a fully-formed world to manifest, such is the skill of the creative team. I can write a paragraph here to describe the setting of the story, and that would be more descriptive text than the writer needed to use.

THE SPOILER ZONE
This is a dystopian/post apocalyptic sort of future based on Mafia families and stories – though the rulers are not the Mafia as such. In fact the ones we meet all have Scottish surnames, though that must be just a coincidence, surely…? Anyway, the only people who matter are members of the Families; they have ‘serfs’ who work for them and the rest of the population are ‘the Waste’. Think about all the ‘good’ Mafia stories you have seen, and it falls in to place.

Each Family has a Lazarus – a super-soldier who is the protector/hitman for the family members and who works directly for the Father.

The first issue introduces all the players, sets up their characters and the background. It seemed fairly obvious what was going on, and there are a few obvious plot lines for future development. However, it is still a masterfully constructed and illustrated story – you don’t just create such a complex world that the reader can understand straight off without careful planning.

THE SPOILER ZONE
For a detailed breakdown of the individual issues, see Lazarus Volume 1 TP.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By M. Middleton on 21 Nov 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A gripping, fantastically-drawn story by 2 comic legends. The near future: power and wealth are now concentrated not in the hands of governments or corporations, but cartel-like Families, who own their own compounds and territories. And like the present-day cartels and governments, each is trying to gain the upper hand over the other...
This is where their Lazarus comes in, each Family having created a semi-artificial being who is part superspy, part Terminator-like killing machine.
But what happens to a killing machine that starts to have...doubts? Read it and find out. 10 stars, never mind 5.

We join this story as the Carlyle family Lazarus is attacked just as another Family launches an assault on a Carlyle facility. These scenes introduce all the players, set up their characters, and sets the wheels in motion for this introductory story. It seemed fairly obvious what was going on, and there are a few obvious plot lines for future development. However, it is still a masterfully constructed and illustrated story – you don’t just create such a complex world that the reader can understand straight off without careful planning.
