The story of Lucifer is as strong as ever but the artistic pacing of this issue is a bit off. Scenes stop and start in the middle of pages and the backgrounds do little to convey a sense of location. Indeed, the opening fight scene makes it all but impossible to determine where Lucifer moves to with his "portal trick" until we see the other characters present. This isn't a bad comic but it's far below its usual standard.
Final Analysis: 7 out of 10.
