    I came to this graphic novel with no prior knowledge of the Sandman universe. All I know of the character of Lucifer comes from the recent TV series, so I was interested to go back to the roots, as it were. Due to my lack of background reading, I did find the opening section a tad conf...

    Fascinating, but also helps if you've read the previous run, as this is a contuation of Mike Carey's work. As I haven't, I kinda had to just go with it. Still, pretty damn interesting and some really arresting art. ...

    Disclaimer: I received a free ecopy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The story was kind of boring. It never grabbed my attention enough to care about what was happening. The art was good though. ...

    This anthology of stories started taking place years after the first "Sandman" series came to an end. After that, Leslie S. Klinger annotated them, which allowed a lot of Neil Gaiman's original ruminations to be explained and clarified. History now moves on. Aided by raven Matthew, ...

    We are fans of Lucifer TV Series so I had to read the book that started it all. I Enjoy finding out more about Lucifer and his past. This is a very well written story and I loved the artwork. Will be watching for next book in this series. I will be recommending this book to my customer...

    I received an ARC copy of this book from NetGalley. I should have known after the summary started with "This is the ~one true tale~ of what befell the Prince of Lies" that it was going to be like this, but I had to give it a chance. I was going to call it a DNF after issue 3, but th...

    I enjoyed the Sandman series and loved the Lucifer spin off comic from Mike Carey. This left me worried about how this comic would be. I think it started a little rough, but I have been pleasantly surprised at the overall quality. I am reading this in individual issues and do have it o...

    Huh? I just... Huh? Is the opening section related to The Sandman supposed to be the "present," and the rest of the book is going back in time to tell the story of how Lucifer got to the "present"? It's the only explanation that makes sense. Also how is Lucifer talking to Caliban and a...

    'How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, 'I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,...

    The Second, (and Possibly Best), of the Four New Sandman Universe Series O.K., here's the deal as I understand it. There are four new series that are spinoffs of Neil Gaiman's Sandman Universe. Each shares and expands on the Sandman Universe and is set in the "evolving" world of the...

    I?ve never read the Mike Carey Lucifer series or seen the TV show (and I?ll probably never do either now) so I don?t know if it?s because I?m so unfamiliar with the character and his story (couldn?t tell you if this is a continuation of the previous books or a reboot) or wh...

    Wow! This was a hell of a read (pun intended)! The stories are great, the artwork is superb! Just wow! ...

    Another in the new line of Sandman spin-offs, but one I enjoyed far more than The Dreaming; a scratchy, claustrophobic anxiety dream of a comic, with Watters' knack for stories that feel like fevers perfectly complemented by the Fiumaras' unsettling visuals. Opening with enough injury-...

    Admittedly, it's been more years than I care to remember since I last looked looked at the Sandman series. Happily, this was a genuine, unexpectedly excellent reintroduction the Sandman Universe. The story threads come together very well by the conclusion, the characters are memorable,...

    Lucifer is missing - that's never a good sign. So who is that red-headed man digging holes and searching for his missing memories? And what does this have to do with a coven of witches, a detective's dead wife, and the demon Mazikeen? When the dust settles, the answers you find might n...

    This is the first Lucifer comic I'd ever read. I was familiar with the character from Neil Gaiman's Sandman series, but I'd never actually read any of the character's solo stories. So, as this volume began, I did feel a bit confused as to what was going on. Watters definitely throws re...

    I feel like this came out in the 90s, which is not necessarily a bad thing. I enjoyed the throwback. I worry though that it is a bit wordy for this era of comics. However, Lucifer is always a fascinating character no matter who depicts him. The take on free will in this one is particul...

    3,5/5. I never read the original Sandman series so I can?t really compare them. But this one, in itself, was good. Dark universe, dark humor has well and an interesting but a bit confusing plot. Not sure I will continue exploring this universe but I?m glad I read this one! ...

    ***Advance Review Copy generously provided through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Okay, let me tell you that this confused me, a lot. At first, I had to download this book like five times because I thought that I was doing something wrong. That was not Lucifer but San...

    I got this volume as an eARC along with Volume One of The Dreaming , which means I sampled half of the new Sandman Universe story arcs released to celebrate the series' 30th anniversary. Lucifer Morningstar was one of my favorite original Sandman characters, even though he only pla...

    This book was so decompressed it bored me to tears. The first several issues just seemed to be random things happening with no connection, although it sort of eventually came together. Of course, by that point I'd already given up on this garbage. The book also apparently has very litt...

    This is an incredibly dark and oddly-enough really smart piece of writing. Exactly my cup of tea. Awesome story telling, great pace and the aesthetics come correct. Super excited to continue this storyline. ...

    Considering Neil Gaiman's sprawling Sandman mythos which is chock full of fantastic characters, my expectations were high. Sadly, I was very disappointed at this lackluster mess. Retains very little of any of Gaiman's magic and is apparent from the first few pages that he had very litt...

    Hard to follow (not in a good way). The Lucifer/Caliban story felt like a pale imitation of Morpheus/Orpheus. And Lucifer losing his powers at the beginning of the series mirrors Morpheus to the point that I'd kinda just rather go back and re-read that instead. I think this was meant t...

    Lucifer Vol. 1 is a dark and twisted story in true Gaiman fashion. Full of legends and myths, the story finds the prince of darkness trapped and broken fighting his way back to himself. The tale begins all contorted and twisted and confusing as all get out before settling down to an en...

    I was so pleasantly surprised by The Dreaming Vol. 1: Pathways and Emanations that I kind of got my hopes up too much for this one. Yeah, the new Lucifer book is not very good and I?m really not sure why ? I didn?t get through Mike Carey?s run, nor did I read any other reboots ...

    High fantasy, beautiful art, and mythology weave together to create a tremendous reading experience in this book. The characters are the stuff of dreams -- Neil Gaiman's dreams, in fact. And those are very interesting and revelatory dreams to explore. Si Spurrier leads this journey ...

    An excellent new chapter in Lucifer's story. This one comes as part of the Sandman's Universe new series. The creative team behind Lucifer Vol. 1 ? The Infernal Comedy is a large one (even when compared to the original series). The writers behind this volume are Dan Watters, Neil Gai...
