Lucifer Vol. 1: The Infernal Comedy

Lucifer Vol. 1: The Infernal Comedy

One of four books expanding Neil Gaiman's acclaimed Sandman Universe. The onetime ruler of Hell has gone missing. Lucifer is MIA. He finds himself imprisoned and crippled by mysterious forces who seek to torment him for their own terrible ends. He also happens to have no idea how he got there.

This is the one true tale of what befell the Prince of Lies, the Bringer of Light--Lucifer. The blind, destitute old man, who lives in a small boarding house in a quiet little town, where nothing is quite what it seems and no one can leave. He's trapped, you see? Trapped in a bizarre prison with no memory of how he got there or why. He has no recollection of setting out to find his offspring. He also does not remember that if he does not find him it could be the end of all things. Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, a cop who may have brain cancer is tasked with a mission. Find and Kill Lucifer.

From crime and mystery author Dan Watters (The Shadow, Deep Roots) with art from Max Fiumara and Sebastian Fiumara (Abe Sapien, The Amazing Spider-Man, All-Star Batman) bring us the next chapter in the story everyone's favorite son of God.

The Sandman Universe is a new series of books curated by Neil Gaiman for DC Vertigo. Conjuring epic storytelling and immersing readers into the evolving world of the Dreaming, The Sandman Universe begins anew with four new ongoing series, existing in a shared universe, building upon Gaiman's New York Times best-selling series that lyrically weaved together stories of dreams and magic.

  • Sam Quixote

    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 (...

    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 comp...

    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...

    The Second, (and Possibly Best), of the Four New Sandman Universe SeriesO.K., here's the deal as I understand it. There are four new series that are spinoffs of Neil Gaiman's Sandman Universe. Each sh...

  • Alex Sarll

    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 p...

  • Niklas Pivic

    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 rumina...
