But the point still stands, I absolutely love this volume! I absolutely love the cover to issue Anyway, I just love the whole thing with the Basanos because it's bas "This volume has some of my favorite issues and my favorite quotes in the whole series," I say about literally every single volume.
Anyway, I just love the whole thing with the Basanos because it's basically just like Lucifer creating problems for himself [and you know, more reinforcement that his sin definitely is pride]. I just find it very interesting that he made time run much faster in his universe - presumably so that it could 'catch up' to God's universe and make the two more easily comparable - and it really screwed him over in two major ways 1.
And there's a line that she says that I love which is "how centuries and men must seem like mayflies to him" because again that's specific language that has been used to describe God before and it's just very interesting to see Lucifer set himself up to BE God and then slowly realize that's not exactly what he wanted or maybe not as 'easy' as he thought it would be.
This whole series is honestly just amazing and has so much depth. I love it. And the part with the centaur girl comparing Lucifer to God. Just love this cover! Lucifer in a nutshell Death showing up to lay down some truth lol I just find this funny And then of course he's gotta be like that Absolutely love Mazikeen in this one.
Jan 09, Chad rated it it was amazing Shelves: All the threads laid so far come back to roost in this volume. I love that Lucifer's pride continues to be his Achilles' heel.
Carey does such a fantastic job weaving in and out supporting characters and then using them to launch the story off in new directions. Guadium has quickly become my new favorite character.

This series just keeps getting better. Shortly after the seventh day of Creation, the Basanos infiltrate and wreak havoc in the said cosmos, and Lucifer arrives a tad too late to save his masterpiece. Elsewhere, it seems like almost all creatures in all imag This series just keeps getting better.
The excitement is almost killing me. I loved this volume to bits because it reveals so much about Lucifer without actually stripping him off of his clandestine aura. In the previous issues he is shown as a quasi-perfect creature whose unsurpassed weapons are his strong will and razor-sharp wit.
The story is a labyrinth of literary twists and turns, with action charging along at a speed that will keep the readers on the edge of their seats.
I think that deserves a special mention. Carey is a genius, I might say, for crafting a masterpiece this good. The plot is intricately executed and is hinting that succeeding issues will contain bombs of epiphanies. Action-packed scenes, poignant events, and humurous parts are juggled nimbly. I also commend the writing, both the strong dialogues and the fragments of narration strewn across the volume that have shades of stylish poetry in them.
Thumb up! Feb 13, Nicholas Kaufmann rated it it was amazing. My reviews LUCIFER are just becoming embarrassing love letters to the genius of Mike Carey at this point, so I'll just say that even four volumes in the series continues to surprise and amaze me. Truly excellent stuff. Damn, that was some nice fire. May 17, Zec rated it really liked it Shelves: comics.
Another fantastic series of arcs. Really enjoying the format of this series as compared to The Sandman. Very TV like in the sense that most issues are standalone but all contribute to a larger arc. Biggest difference between Lucifer and Sandman is that since all the stories are connected and build upon each other, even filler one-shot issues are still important. Interesting that Mazikeen goes though quite a lot and kinda ends up in the same place. I feel slightly sorry for Jill and a little disappointed in her character.
It seemed like she could have done a lot with her powers and I was really looking forward to see if she could have any sort of relationship with the Basanos. Semi-interesting parallels with the club and other celebrity conspiracy stuff but not particularly spellbinding. Of all the characters thus far, she is the one who feels most like a plot-device rather than a character. The final issue of this book, featuring Gaudium and his Sister, was fun, entertaining and had some good world-building.
I really like how the events that were set in motion in the first issue of the series come to a climax here. The biggest quality of the series so far is its meticulous plotting. Apr 26, Siria rated it it was amazing Shelves: fantasy , graphic-novel , 21st-century. I was predisposed to like this from the title alone, since my Dante geekiness is pure and true. I really wasn't disappointed. The breadth and inventiveness and scope of this title just awes me.
Reading it evokes the same sensation I get when I'm deep in the Commedia - of glimpsing a huge framework that is partly comprehensible and partly divine and partly ineffable and partly just really bloody confusing. There is the same slow sense of discovery about the whole thing as well, of peeling back la I was predisposed to like this from the title alone, since my Dante geekiness is pure and true. There is the same slow sense of discovery about the whole thing as well, of peeling back layers to see more and more of what is going on.
There are some things that Lucifer knows, and some things that he is only finding out for himself, and some things that can only come as revelation to him. In many ways, the progression of this pings many of the same things that hit me when I read about Dante climbing down through the Inferno and up the mount of Purgatory. Those are issues that are probably going to find themselves expressed in a long, wanktastic post on Lucifer, theology, and possibly the Comedy itself once of these days.
Feel afraid. May 14, Jennifer rated it really liked it Shelves: graphic-novel , reads. The problem with creating a realm outside of God's rule is that every creature on the wrong side of divinity wants a piece of it - or, in the case of the Basanos, wants all of it.
In the fourth volume of Carey's excellent series, Lucifer is forced to defend against all comers.
