    Comics Bulletin -  Robert Tacopina Feb 24, 2015

    The creative team delivered a masterpiece with this entry into the series. The depth of detail and emotion in that epic fight scene between Forever and Sonja as the two friends are pushed to the limit physically and mentally was almost painful to witness, but well worth the price of admission on its merits alone. Lazarus continues to amaze on a monthly basis with the one-two punch of Greg Rucka and Michael Lark producing one of the best books on the market at the moment.

    Rhymes With Geek - Matt Garza Feb 20, 2015

    Another wonderful installment in an already spectacular series.Overall, Lazarus #15 is another wonderful installment in an already spectacular series and I'm definitely interested in the next issue, as Rucka promises that it will be somewhat different from the rest of the series. I've mentioned before how geeked out I get when creators experiment in the way they tell their stories, so as long as the quality of the story remains the same I am down with whatever this creative team throws at me.

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Feb 18, 2015

    Lazarus #15 is the finale that Conclave deserved, as though the events aren't quite as gripping as the last issue, the exciting fight between the two Lazari makes it the most explosive issue to date. The emotional turmoil also adds great depth, and along with the shocking climax, it will leave readers returning for more. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jonathan Bryant Feb 21, 2015

    It's a rare treat for political intrigue to take a backseat to actual physical combat. Rucka's trust in Lark is clear after letting him run wild for more than half of the issue. Lazarus's 15th issue is another accolade on the creative team's already decorated lapel. Read Full Review

    GWW - Enrique Rea Feb 17, 2015

    Issue 15 is an exciting entry point for new readers as well. There's plenty of background and quick exposition to catch up the reader right before the battle ensues and leaves off on a point that is totally accessible. I know it's an odd thing to say at the end of an arc, but that's how well the execution is in the issue – flawless. Just don't expect this level of action every month. Instead, enjoy the backstabbing, the intrigue, the continued world building but most of all stay for one the best characters in comics – Forever Carlyle. Read Full Review

    While slower story wise save for one sudden swerve, Lark's excellent art drives another excellent issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ashley Victoria Robinson Feb 18, 2015

    Lazarus #15 leaves a lot of room for the art in a trail by combat that heralds the death of a character we've known from the start. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - CJ Yudelson Feb 21, 2015

    This issue's conclusion more than made up for how the battle ended. The fate of the conclave is uncertain, as is the fate of a major character. The creative team did a great job bringing a finality to this confrontation while still leaving the reader bewildered on just how this carefully crafted world will move forward after the events of this issue.

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Feb 18, 2015

    Lazarus #15 was a really enjoyable issue, though it was much lighter on the story and character development. Things didn't really progress much until the end of the book, but that wasbalanced somewhat with some great action in the middle. Not the best issue of the series, but still a fun ride nonetheless.
