"CONCLAVE," PART ONE. For the first time in the 65 years since they divided the world, the 16 Families are gathering again. For Malcolm Carlyle, it is an opportunity to identify and eliminate his enemies. For Jakob Hock, it is an opportunity to exact for revenge. And for Forever Carlyle, it's the first step in discovering the truth about who she is, and what she is destined to become.

    In addition, Lazarus #11 takes full advantage of the political dealings that go on in this world at all times. Seeing the political struggles unfold is great, as it offers development both for characters and for the world. I know that a book having a political side may turn some people off, but Greg Rucka does it in such a way that it never feels to be engaging to the reader. Due to largely to the amount of world building that he's done, it's very easy to care about every little thing that occurs in the pages of Lazarus. Read Full Review

    Lazarus 11 is one of the best issues so far in a stellar series. Greg Rucka continues to build an intriguing, original world filled with memorable and well rounded characters full of mystery and hidden motives. This issue continues an arc that is set to blow that world open into new possibilities and with the Conclave itself starting next issue, we are sure to see the cast expand further (including the long awaited return of Joacquim). Lazarus 11 is a fantastic issue of one of the best series going today. If you're not already reading it, get on it right now. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Sep 12, 2014

    "Lazarus" is Rucka's best work in a long time, which is no small feat given the consistent high quality of his output. "Lazarus" is layered and smart, and with every issue Rucka and Lark deepen and strengthen everything that came before while aggressively pursuing new aspects of the world and characters.

    IGN - Jeff Lake Sep 11, 2014

    Rucka, already proven as a master of scheming, delivers yet again, his pacing deliberate and plotted to the smallest detail. All the world building he's done, both subtle and unsubtle, begins to pay dividends here, the rivalry between the factions reaching a level of intrigue we've yet to see. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - CJ Yudelson Sep 13, 2014

    There is a lot of story here but some may find wear the issue ends to be a disappointment. There is so much buildup to the meeting of the 16 families who rule the world but the issue ends just as the Carlyle clan is about to leave. For me this wasn't a big deal because I feel like this issue has a lot of interesting negotiations and planning from the Carlyle patriarch Malcolm, which really shows how calculating this guy is. Lazarus #11 is another solid issue from a great series, if you havn't read it yetgo out and buy the first two trades people! Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jonathan Bryant Sep 13, 2014

    Despite the revolving door of interesting ancillary characters, Forever and her impending identity crisis still remains the most compelling aspect of the series. After all, when one's entire purpose in life has been stripped away in an instant, what remains underneath? Forever is a ticking time bomb of emotions, and the Family caught in the blast just might be her own. Read Full Review
