Yeah, I've read some fucked up stuff in my time but that was up there with Torpedo for sheer nastiness, another series I bailed on, for the same reason.
Lucifer: Volume 1: Cold Heaven
Well, this was a surprise! I expected a reboot and got a continuation and a very smart one at that.
So, this is what happened a decade later after the end of Carey's run and it's very good indeed. The only problem is my memory of that run is a little hazy and Black has clearly done her homework. The other smart move is bringing back all the great locales of Sandman / Lucifer - Hell, the Silver City, the Dreaming. It's quite inspired.
Nice to see Garbett get a regular book to show off on too, which he does.
All in all, an excellent gamble - time to get the next one.
