    Comicosity - Matt Santori-Griffith Mar 19, 2014

    If my thoughts are spiraling down into incoherence, its only because the creators presentation of a world without hope leads me down the dark staircase. And Im pleased to follow, even though its bound to be a rough road. A book like Lazarus is no easy read if you take it seriously and give it time. Give those first five pages a long 90 seconds. 60 seconds, even. Time yourself, and youll start feeling a fraction of what this world must be like if youre not an omniscient reader if youre not floating above the page, above the fray. Breathe it in, if you dare. And then hug your kids if youve got them. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Chris Romero Mar 21, 2014

    Rucka's character dialogue is clever and poignant, with plenty of suspenseful moments placed within the pages. Artist Michael Lark captures the gloom of the book with intensity, making Lazarus #7 a must-read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Mar 24, 2014

    "Lazarus" is a book that just gets better and better as it builds up the kind of layers to characters and world building that all comics should strive for. The depth is rich and the emotion is palpable, and I'm on the edge of my seat for what's next. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Mar 19, 2014

    Michael Lark's art is great, as always. He handles the ark and the lettering on this series, which gives each issue a cohesive and unique feel. That said, there are times where the lettering is a little confusing.A guard hands Forever a file and seems to answer a question she never asked. Stuff like that can give you pause, but it hardly takes away form the greatness of the series. Visually, Lazarus is spectacular; a bold, sublime comic series that deserves your attention.

    Geeked Out Nation - CJ Yudelson Mar 20, 2014

    Lazarus continues to be a thinking persons book with gut wrenching emotional drama, thought provoking moral conflicts, and an all too realistic display of a dystopian society. Issue #7 is really a great issue and my favorite thus far in this arc. I highly recommend it and the series as a whole to anyone wanting a little more “umph” to their comic reading digest.

    Hyper Geeky - ClumsyG May 9, 2014

    Some keep their eyes on the goal, waiting for it to be achieved. What makes Lazarus so sweet is the journey itself " the lives of the characters and the state of the world they live in. The questions are just as important as the answers, and the experience is enriched because of it. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Mar 18, 2014

    Lazarus continues to be one of the strongest ongoing series that is currently coming out on a monthly basis. Rucka and Lark work incredibly well together and it shows on every single page of Lazarus. Even though this arc seems different compared to the previous, its issues like this that make you realize that they are just two sides to the same coin. The Lift is still continuing Forevers story but its also showing us different aspects of what life is like in this world Rucka and Lark have built which is turning out to be a very fascinating read.

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Mar 24, 2014

    While Im still not especially excited by the Barrett family, I am curious what awaits them at the Lift, where they will be fighting (figuratively or maybe literally) with many other families. Even more, though, I think the band of terrorists/revolutionaries and Emma could make for some really interesting upcoming stories. Maybe these will even connect with Forevers mysterious texts in previous issues about her ties to the Carlyles. Read Full Review

    Overall, I'm a bit meh about this issue. It was decent at best. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ashley Victoria Robinson Mar 24, 2014

    Deeply steeped in its own mythology, Lazarus #7 may not have been the most dynamic issue of the series to date, but will likely make more sense when viewed within the context of the story as a whole. This is an issue better left to the trade. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Erik McAlister Mar 20, 2014

    Ok, there is a small firefight. I forgot. But that's the point, I think. The Barrets are a forgettable story element. Now that I think about it, that is my main issue with this book currently. I do not care about them. There is nothing interesting there. Nothing. Enough with the Barrets already. But if things continue to go the way that they currently are, that issue may not exist anymore.

    If you're not reading this book right now, you're missing out. A very realistic possible future fleshed out with great art and characters as well a story that hasn't taken a breath yet.

    The look and tone of this book are just amazing. It's truly like nothing else on the shelves right now. The story takes a tragic turn for the recently introduced "waste" family, and we also get Eve and Johanna and the "terrorist" story, and a little bit more of Eve's sad upbringing. Really great narrative structure and Lark and Arcas are really doing the story justice. One thing I just noticed--maybe it's always been this way--this comic has no ads. Not even Image ads. I mean there are the great fake-out ads that relate to the story, but otherwise, nary a one. That alone is impressive.
