    The rest of the issue deals with the fallout and face to face between Malcolm and Forever. I wont give away everything but there is definitely a new status quo when it comes to Forever following orders from her siblings, physicians and her Father. With Jonah gone, Hock and Malcolm have it out as the Conclave crumbles into a feud that could bring about world war. With one more issue left in this thrilling arc Forever might be all that stands in the way of her “family's” demise. I do not know what to expect for next issue butI can't wait to read it. What I can say is this was a fantastic issue and the creative team have really hit their stride with this arc. (Note it has always been great). Lazarus issue #14 is a great read, go get it.

    GWW - Enrique Rea Jan 16, 2015

    Lazarus is one of the most elegant sci-fi dystopian epics in comics. One that doesn't bombard you with great futuristic technology or fantastical beings. It is still about great characters in a world that resembles ours but is rearranged by fate. Lark brings a somber but masterful use of shadows and angles that create emotive scenes that don't require words. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - John F. Trent Jan 14, 2015

    Rucka and Lark's character development continues to reach new heights as they craft very realistic characters. Lark's artwork and ability to portray Forever's emotional state not only in her actions, but just in her facial features is extremely well-done. His artwork humanizes Forever. Meanwhile, Rucka brings the political machinations out of the shadows setting up a showdown between Hock and Carlyle. There was only one misstep and that was the illusion of danger with the security guards running around the complex for two pages. It just seemed a little much and did not create any real fear of discovery. Read Full Review

    Rucka's writing is as magnetic and terse as ever, yet much of the book's tension comes courtesy of artist Michael Lark. His physical pacing is phenomenal this issue, panels flowing with a cinematic zest befitting the best spy thrillers film has to offer. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Jan 13, 2015

    Another great issue of Lazarus, which is a trend I personally love to see. This is one of those issues of Lazarus that may not have had a lot of action scenes, but sometime it's those moments between characters that are the most intense. By the end of this issue it would seem that the small thread of peace keeping the families civil under this one roof has finally broken. With everything that happened in this issue of Lazarus, the next issue looks to be even better. Read Full Review

    "Lazarus" #14 might not jump out and surprise anyone, but it doesn't need to either. It's satisfying, it's an important part of both "Conclave" and "Lazarus" overall and it gets the series right where it needs to be for the conclusion of this story arc next month. "Lazarus" continues to entertain and captivate. Read Full Review
