    Bloody! As usual! The story was ok. A lot of set-up. I expected more, especially after the two part prelude with you-know-who... Great last page! Bold! But a really mean place to interrupt the story. And the whole thing is too short! Perhaps I have to get used to the new format... I still don‘t trust Johanna. ★★★★☆ Additional short story (text): „Your Last Meal On Earth“ by Lisa Sturges. ★★★☆ The RPG stuff at the end was fun. And the letters. Especially the answer to the last one. ★★★★★ The science b Bloody! As usual! The story was ok. A lot of set-up. I expected more, especially after the two part prelude with you-know-who...

Especially the answer to the last one. ★★★★★ The science bit was mostly depressing. Humans on Mars in my lifetime. Hopefully not just as an escape plan. ★★★★☆ Now we wait for July, for the next Quarterly! Nice cover page! ——————— Pre-read review: Looking forward to this a lot! There is a two-part prelude, Lazarus #27 and #28, which might be best read beforehand. If I got my numbering right, this one here would be #29 in the allover series.

    It’s back and still brilliant. The wait for the quarterly issues will be long though.

    I have a fond rememberance for 2013. It seemed to me like one of the high points in comics. Image seemed to be moving in a spot that Vertigo user to occupy. I am not sure if it’s a cloudy rear view but I have no trouble defending it (standout titles by Rucka, Remender, Seeley, Fraction and Brubaker followed by memorable titles by Williamson, Kirkman, Aaron, Gilles, and Brubaker in 2014). It sure feels comparable to that creative time in the early to mid 90s. It didn’t appear that Image did a whole I have a fond rememberance for 2013.

I am not sure if it’s a cloudy rear view but I have no trouble defending it (standout titles by Rucka, Remender, Seeley, Fraction and Brubaker followed by memorable titles by Williamson, Kirkman, Aaron, Gilles, and Brubaker in 2014). It sure feels comparable to that creative time in the early to mid 90s. It didn’t appear that Image did a whole lot to capitalize on this, in retrospect. The biggest effect was most of these writers went to steady jobs at The Big Two. Of course, how much of this is personal recollection and relation to my personal comic shop, I am not sure. In any case, it was a strong impression. Of 2013-14, Rucka’s Lazarus is one of the few things that still remain. It has now been relaunched in a sort as a longer now quarterly format. Seemingly, this feels like a good modern move, bridging the best features of the weeklies and Graphic Novels. Lazarus is easily one of the best comics of this decade. The relaunch doesn’t exactly work as a starting point, although it certainly tries. It does allow a big chunk of story which works in favor of Lazarus. Not that it ever had an issue, but this is a bigger story and it should not be tied to size limitations. Of course, the team of Rucka, Lark, Bowland and Arcas are near peerless. Every detail- story, art, color is top notch. If I have to nitpick, I do think at time it suffers at its overambition. I am afraid at times it may get to Game of Thronesy with so many subplots. Of course, this is for most intents, a first issue. I also suspect some of my issues may have to do more with some fatigue of what’s roughly a good three years or more of material. It’s a minor quibble of course, since Rucka works well at both micro (characterization, dialogue) and macro (world building) levels. The addition of a strong prose story by Lilah Sturges as well as a few related content (cool fake ads) and a top notch letters page would make me feel I was getting my money’s worth. (At $8, I doubt I would have flinched either way) For those not familiar with the title, it is a well thought Dystopia that seems much more related to the real world than modern Dystopia stereotypes would suggest. Certainly, a worthy inclusion to the "What comics should I be reading?" discussion

    A $7.99 price tag, but well worth it for us Lazarus fans. Quarterly now, with a prestige format with 64 pages and perfect bound. 2 years plus from when the series and the mini-series ended. We get back to the story of Forever and the Carlyle Family. But now we have to wait 3 months for the story to continue. I really like Forever, she is one of the toughest female characters out there, could rival Sarah Connors in her heyday! T And maybe a Lazarus movie or series? Why not?

    I seriously thought this was Marisol on the cover. I've figured Marisol and Forever were related, somehow, for a long time, and while that has not (yet) been confirmed, I wonder if this new haircut is a step in that direction. Though, I suppose, it could just be a way to visually separate Forever (view spoiler)[and 8, given the time/age jump (hide spoiler)] . Anyway, this is an interesting step forward in the story. Not sure just how I feel about the change in format, but it'll give me a good excus I seriously thought this was Marisol on the cover.

    After what feels like forever, no pun intended, Lazarus is FINALLY back and it is amazing! The war continues with Johanna as acting head of the Carlyle family and Forever is loyally by her side but Forever wants Jo to deliver on the promise that she made, to let Forever meet the other version of herself, Eight. Back at Carlyle HQ, Beth is pushing Eight to her physical limits and she’s having a hard time adjusting, understandably. The issue ends with Forever going as Representative into D’Souza t After what feels like forever, no pun intended, Lazarus is FINALLY back and it is amazing! The war continues with Johanna as acting head of the Carlyle family and Forever is loyally by her side but Forever wants Jo to deliver on the promise that she made, to let Forever meet the other version of herself, Eight. Back at Carlyle HQ, Beth is pushing Eight to her physical limits and she’s having a hard time adjusting, understandably. The issue ends with Forever going as Representative into D’Souza territory and of course she walks right into a trap. A trap that I don’t foresee having a good ending for either parts. Needless to say I can’t wait until the next issue is released. So good!

    Seems like we will only get issues 2x a year which makes me sad because it's so consistently good

    It's back! I love the new format, adding short fiction plus other supplemental material is a great way to increase the value of a comic book.

    Rucka hasn't lost anything with the long layoff... the short fiction was a nice bonus.
