Lucifer did take a while to get on its feet. And I warn people that when I loan them my first two trades. "Trust me," I says, "You have to get fully into the second trade before it gets good. But by the end of the second one? It's really. really. good." And like me, every single one of them has been hooked. Every one. Because it's a very good story.
Lucifer is so complex, and divinely sculptured, that I think it is better read from above - from the "height" of the trade, as opposed to the closeness of the floppy. The trades make the whole story a galloping read, and a compelling, engaging, interesting one at that.
Over at Sequential Tart, Adrienne Rappaport gives Lucifer #75 a perfect score of 10. In addition, she offers a proper review and eulogy that I have always believed was long overdue for a long time.
This issue brings to close an enormous artistic chapter of my life. Lucifer was an expansive platform of growth for me as an artist, a comic artist specifically, and I was damn lucky to be able to contribute to it for 5 years.
What am I really saying? What do I really want from you? Whether you're a PETER GROSSfan, a MIKE CAREYfan, a Sandman fan, or a supernatural Horror fiction fan, it doesn't matter-- Buy the trade paperback collections. BUY THE TRADES They are really damn good. I'm biased, but good is GOOD
