Lucifer #7 - A Review

Lucifer is returned to his Los Angeles night club. Yet the events set in motion by his investigation into the murder of The Presence continue. And as the archangel Raphael enlists the aid of reformed drug addict Lorrin Hammon in an investigation of his own, a war for control of Hell is brewing between the current queen Mazikeen, who holds much of Lucifer's power, and Lucifer's bastard son by the Japanese death goddess Izanami-No-Mikoto, who would rule over two afterlives by proxy.

This new Lucifer series continues to impress with every passing issue. Holly Black has taken the complex mythologies crafted by Neil Gaiman and Mike Carey and expanded upon them masterfully. The artwork by Lee Garbett and Antonio Fabela proves equally astounding.
