Lazarus: Sourcebook #2

May 12, 2017

A very interesting take on the more overtly villainous faction of the two main families in conflict, the second "Lazarus" sourcebook seems that it would do well with a little more artwork, even in the form of portraits of important figures, to space out the writing, give a more comprehensive look at technologies, and make it easier on the eyes of comic readers.
