While it was kinda annoying having a repeat story (the first story in this volume is also the first story in The Dreaming Vol. 1), I enjoyed this volume. Now, I haven't read any of the Sandman series (other than The Dreaming), so I know I missed a lot of references, but I got most of it, and I know how to google haha. The art was gorgeous, the story was intriguing, and the characters were interesting- William Blake was especially good, I liked him a lot. I look forward to Volume 2! #LuciferVol1theInfernalComedyTheSandmanUniverse

I found this graphic novel particularly engaging. The art was lovely and it was easy to follow as well as adding an extra dimension to the dialogue. This will be a great addition to the Sandman Universe. Thank you to NetGalley, DC Entertainment, and Vertigo for providing me with an ARC of Lucifer.

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 entertaining story of darkness and tricks that leaves you with an aha moment as everything clicks into place. The art tends toward the macabre and fits the story perfectly. Volume 1 is an exactly start to a new storyline. My voluntary, unbiased review is based upon a review copy from Netgalley.

Having just read Volume 1 of The Dreaming, I couldn't help but notice that Lucifer, Volume 1, starts with the same issue. I guess everything is happening in the Sandman Universe from the same origin? While that's a neat concept, I couldn't help but feel resentful about the "wasted space" in this first volume. Once past that first issue, the Lucifer story slowly starts to unwind. I felt this volume went at a good pace, and had several twists and turns over the 200-page span of the book. There are some interesting characters along the way: William Blake, for instance, rolling around on a motorized scooter, and other "friends" that Lucifer has picked up through the ages. And, of course, it wouldn't be Lucifer if he didn't defy his father and play some part in a rebellion. I'll be returning for volume 2 to see where this goes.

This book is amazing and the drawings are breathtaking. I loved it and I want to buy the hardcover to see the drawings at their best. Highly recommended! Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.
