Product Description

Review

"Biblical in its scope, drawing on myth cycles from across time and space, the Lucifer saga is a taut insight into a corrupted lust for power. Momentous reading." Matt Adams, The Essex Chronicle "The best mainstream comic currently being published..." - Jockey Slut"

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.

The final volume. It's time for Lucifer to put his affairs in order before taking what he feels is the best course of action.
Carey wraps up the series with some single issue stories that pick up the pieces, and suggest potential futures, of many of the main characters and a few of the more memorable secondary ones.
The women of the series made the toughest choices and underwent the greatest change. Their growth is explored beautifully. In a perfect world, that story would never end. It's a bitter-sweet experience; particularly for my favourite character.
It surprised me to find that I will miss the Lucifer cast just as much (and is some cases even more) than I miss the Sandman cast.

More than any other volume, this one feels like it's firmly in the Sandman universe. The structure of events and the interactions of the players are on a par with it.

Carey states in his afterword that Lucifer was never his character, he was just lucky enough to be able to journey with him, to guide him through adventures and growth. While that is certainly true, in my mind, Lucifer was an underdeveloped catalyst until Carey wrote him firmly into Sandman lore. He deserves credit for taking a piece of clay and crafting an exquisite piece of art.

The book collects together Lucifer issues 70 - 75, and Lucifer: Nirvana one-shot.

The final chapter of Lucifer - how I've waited to add it to my collection! Lucifer forges his own path, not to be governed by destiny or any links that could tie him down. Elaine grows into her own but you can see how her path and Lucifer's go in extreme opposites.
This final chapter is melancholic as we journey towards Lucifer's final decision.
