    I can't stop raving about Lazarus! The series has done some great building of both the characters and the overall world up to this point, and that's been an amazing ride, but this creative team is just getting started, and issue #13 is solid proof of that. Greg Rucka doesn't just have a firm grip on the world and characters he's created, but he's giving readers intimate details of these creations, and the more I know about it, the more I love it. I swear, I don't like to hand out perfect scores for comics, but Lazarus deserves it. Read Full Review

    "Lazarus" #13 does the nigh-impossible: makes a great series even better, heightened by a somewhat surprising development at the end of the issue. Many series that start off strong, fail to perpetuate the momentum that Rucka and Lark not only maintain, but escalate. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Nov 26, 2014

    Lazarus #13 is another win for the series, taking a more character-focused approached for this issue. The writing and story on the book continue to impress, really delivering a truly engaging and fantastic read. It's not as thrilling as most issues, but you would be hard pressed to not walk away enjoying this. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Matt Garz Nov 28, 2014

    Lazarus #13 is a wonderful example of a fantastic collaboration between everyone working on the series. While this story arc doesn't do much in terms of action, the suspense and overall drama unfolding is fascinating. With an ending like this, you're you'll likely be hanging on the edge of your seat, or cursing the creators for making you invest so much into their story It's really an under appreciated book and I cannot recommend it more.

    Infinite Comix - Jonathan Bryant Nov 29, 2014

    Instead of what could have been a meeting of 16 terminators, Lazarus #13 portrays a breadth of personality and expressiveness that makes each Lazarus feel even more human than their scheming lieges. A surprise order from Malcolm to Forever at the issue's end ensures that the Conclave's arc continues to move at a steady pace. But given that many Lazari are certain to be pitted against one another in the days ahead, it's a future that readers are likely in no hurry to see. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Dec 1, 2014

    As the summit seems to be drawing to a key point, I expect well see some dramatic elements in the next issue, especially based on Forevers confrontation with Jonah. Seeing how Lazarus is a dystopia, too, I dont expect the romance between Forever and Joacquim to work out how either of them wants. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Nov 24, 2014

    Lazarus is without a doubt one of the best series currently ongoing. Both Lark and Rucka are on top of their game and it shows on every page of Lazarus. The depth presented in both Lazarus‘s setting and the character's who inhabit it make for a series that keeps readers coming back for more. Read Full Review

    Lazarus #13 is yet another gripping instalment, as though there are times where it feels over dramatised, the thrilling developments, and emotional twists make it a thoroughly enjoyable chapter. Recommended. Read Full Review
