Vertigo Roundup: Lucifer #2 & Red Thorn #3


Lucifer #2

Writer: Holly Black

Artist: Lee Garbett

This issue continues the riveting journey started in the first as we join Lucifer and Gabriel as they continue to unravel the mystery of who killed God. Their investigation takes them to Hell, where we get an amusing look at that realm’s brand of politics. But make no mistake, this book doesn’t skimp on the horrific elements. Will we see some Sandman next month? Stay tuned.

The latest issue of Red Thorn is now available in comic shops everywhere and doesn’t disappoint. This tour de force in modern fantasy comics features deep, well thought out dialogue, fantastic artwork, and even an orgy, while introducing a new piece to the chessboard. After taking in the latest installment, I must pose a question: is Thorn Vertigo’s next icon? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!
