About the Author
Writer Mike Carey, best known for his work on Vertigo's "Lucifer" and "Hellblazer," has made his mark in comics. Born in Liverpool, England, Carey worked as a teacher for fifteen years before gaining regular work writing for several independent companies. In 1999 he wrote the Sandman spinoff miniseries "The Sandman Presents: Lucifer." This led to the "Lucifer" solo title which earned him a nomination for the 2001 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards - Best Writer. His additional Vertigo projects have included "Faker," "Crossing Midnight "and "The Unwritten." Beyond DC, Carey was also recognized for his work on Marvel's "X-Men" titles. He makes his home in London with his wife, Lin, and his children, Davey, Ben and Louise."

The positives of this series: It is beautifully drawn and exquisitely imagined, with worlds upon worlds portrayed with careful detail and nuance. The characters are for the most part similarly cast -- this is a complex Lucifer, and among the other richly drawn characters are reluctant deity Elaine Belloc and ambitious Hell denizen Christopher Rudd. This series is not on a par with "Sandman," but little is. It will be enjoyed by many of those who loved the original.
The negatives: The story gets weighed down by its own mythology. Heaps of terminology are piled on, and every coming clash is portrayed as if it will be the apex moment of all creation... which of course it is not, because something needs to be left for the next issue. After a while, the incessant apocalypticism reads like the boy who cried wolf, and just gets tiresome.
In this universe which contains an all mighty all knowing Creator, Lucifer is granted power, wisdom, and beauty. Yet he was also predestined to rebel and fall to Hell. This series is about how he intends to break free from the Creator's plans. So given a world where God definitely exists and controls everything, how do you defy God?
