Book Description

21 May 2004 Lucifer
Spun from the pages of Neil Gaiman's multi award-winning Sandman comes another epic fantasy of Biblical proportions, penned by acclaimed writer Mike Carey (Hellblazer) and drawn by Peter Gross (Books of Magic) and Craig Hamilton (Starman). With Lucifer Morningstar set to face a heavenly angel in single combat, tensions in Hell are running high. Plans are afoot by those who believe a Morningstar victory would undermine their authority, and a conspiracy is in place that will see to it that Lucifer will be lucky to come out of the duel alive! The fifth in Titan's series of these massively popular and critically acclaimed graphic novels, Lucifer: Inferno is a taut insight into a corrupted lust for power!

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep it coming 31 May 2004
By Richard Kelly TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
OK so Lucifer has lost his power and has returned to Effrul to fight Amenadiel in simgle combat. Of course this being Mike Carey's (or Neil Gaiman's depending how you look at it) Lucifer will honour his promise and turn up on time. The hosts of hell have arrived to see Hell triumph over Heaven - but things look bleak.
Elsewhere Mazikeen is looking for the feathers that hold Lucifer's power witihin them.Susano-O-No-Mikoto is aware of what is going on and plays a dangerous game.
I cannot tell you too much - as it would ruin the story - but they don't call Lucifer the King of Liers for nothing and the story is engeneously played out for us.
At the end there are more Angels against God than when we started, and Micheal is still looking for a way to resurrect his daughter.
Does Lucifer come back into his power? Buy it and see - you won't be dissapointed, but you MUST read the previous books first.
First class fantasy in a comic 10/10.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lucifer: Vol 5: Inferno 18 Aug 2012
By Faustus
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Book 5 of 11 in the Lucifer series. The four-part storyline that opens this volume closes a deal made in Vol 2: Children and Monsters (2001). Some secondary characters find the event fortuitous, believing it the perfect opportunity to gain favour with one side or the other. It gives writer Mike Carey a chance to further develop threads from previous books, and once more stress that Lucifer can rely just as well on his wits as on his powers; for power is useless without the knowledge of when to best use it.

A large part of this volume feels like an interlude, a time of rest and recuperation before Lucifer can fulfil the promise he made himself in the previous book.

Carey's multifaceted narratives work best when they have a large cast to entwine themselves in; this one is lessened by those deep interrelations being removed as everyone is separated by duty. The closings, the side-events and the setting up of a new arc are all dependent on your enjoyment of the previous books, and as such this feels disjointed and stitched together haphazardly. The stories are strong in characterisation but structurally messy when collected together in a trade; the format highlights its own artificial nature. In single issues they'd have worked much better.

The book collects together Lucifer issues 29 - 35

The first part of this TPB concludes the Divine Comedy as Lucifer descends once more to hell to face his `duel' with Amandiel.
Weakened by the events told in the earlier book and assailed by his many enemies, Lucifer needs all his cunning to survive the contest.
Meanwhile, Mazikeen attempts to restore Lucifer to his full strength as she pursues his enemy across many hellish leagues, only to find her own fate lies at the end of the road.
It is, perhaps, surprising that a creation of such indomitable will and scant regard for others should arouse such devotion from his allies. His affection (if such it is) is hard won and his pride is such that he can barely suffer to be in another's debt even if his existence depends upon it.

Three of the four issues are by the regular team of Gross & Kelly with one issue provided by guest artist Craig Hamilton. Hamilton does a creditable job on the issue, retaining the tone of Gross & Kelly's work, but with hints at John Bolton and David Jackson's work on "Father Shandor, Demon Stalker".

This leads in to the final part of the book, the two-part `Come to Judgement', but before then we have another delightful vignette from regular alternative artist Dean Ormston. In `Bearing Gifts', late-night shop-keeper Mr Al-Dabagh discovers that sometimes sacrifices are worth making.

`Come to Judgement' is a short story that sets the scene for the next volume and, with the inclusion of Viking mythology it also marks a change in tone for the series, which now becomes more akin to the Books of Magic. Humour is at the fore again in the sub-plot which sees an ancient investigator take up the case of a murdered schoolgirl and follows a trail that leads him to Gaudium and the ancient evil of the Jin En Mok.
The book is still highly entertaining, but the second half is certainly a little anti-climactic after the events in `Inferno'.
