Lucifer #01: Devil in the Gatewayby Mike Carey
Synopses & Reviews
The Devil is walking the Earth.
Cast out of Heaven, thrown down to rule in Hell, Lucifer Morningstar has resigned his post and abandoned his kingdom for the mortal city of Los Angeles. Emerging from the pages of writer Neil Gaiman's award-winning series The Sandman, the former Lord of Hell is now enjoying a quiet retirement as the proprietor of Lux, L.A.'s most elite piano bar.
But now an assignment from the Creator Himself is going to change all that.
If Lucifer agrees to do Heaven's dirty work, he can name his own price — but both the task and the reward are more than they seem. Thrown into a position of great threat and ultimate opportunity, Lucifer knows that threading a path through this maze will require the harshest of sacrifices.
Fortunately for the Devil, it's only a question of who is going to make them.
"Mike Carey's Lucifer is even more manipulative, charming, and dangerous than I could have hoped. Carey's stories are elegantly told, solidly written...and they are good comics." Neil Gaiman, from his Foreword
"A work of genius in the dark fantasy genre....Lucifer remains the crown jewels of the Vertigo throne — apparently the Devil really does have all the best comics!" Comics International
"It's in these self-contained stories that we see just how talented Carey is. His imagination and appreciation of the human heart make for storytelling that is both entertaining and thought-provoking." Fandom.com
