5.0 out of 5 stars If you've read the other volumes you're going to buy this whatever I say, 4 Jan. 2007
This review is from: Lucifer: Evensong (Lucifer): Evensong (Lucifer) (Paperback)
If you're new to Lucifer, don't buy this volume. Not because it isn't good, but because everything has already happened. Lucifer follows an epic plot arc split into multiple volumes, rather than discrete story lines as with many comics, and this volume is very much the end.

That aside, this conclusion to Mike Carey's Lucifer is superb. The comic began life as a spin-off from Neil Gaiman's lauded Sandman series and in many ways echoes it. Both series have only 75 carefully plotted issues; early minor characters return later for major roles; narrative focus falls mainly upon one continuous story arc; and this concluding volume feels very akin to "The Wake" (the final Sandman volume) in both tone and function.

Evensong serves as a fitting epilogue to the story, the loose ends of Carey's narrative are wrapped up, closure - more or less - is found for all of the characters and, while wanting more, as a reader you are left with a sense of satisfaction and finality.

After such a stunning series I don't think much more could really be asked. As always the art is gorgeous, especially the beautiful and stylized one-short "Lucifer: Nirvana" which is included in this TPB as a bonus. If you've read the other volumes you're going to buy this whatever I say.
