Lucifer #9 - A Review

The duel for ruler-ship of Hell is nigh! And Lucifer has accepted the invitation to watch his former lover and current Queen of Hell Mazikeen fight his son by the death goddess Izanmi-No-Mikoto. Yet there is more to the duel than meets the eye and more than even Lucifer could have predicted occurring at the same time in Heaven...

This series continues to be an exciting and surprising continuation of the saga first started by Neil Gaiman and continued by Mike Carey. In a relatively scant number of issues, Holly Black has utilized one of the richest mythologies in modern literature to excellent effect and made her own mark upon it. And the artwork by Lee Garbett and Antonio Fabela is some of the finest to come out of Vertigo Comics in recent memory.
