    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Apr 27, 2015

    "Lazarus" #16 is an ingeniously constructed, ambitious issue. Sister Bernard's story advances the plot, enriches the world-building, provides a quiet beat in the larger arc and is an almost poetic tale of religious doubt and devotion in a time of war. Read Full Review

    Lazarus #16 is another top-notch installment from one of the best series being published by Image Comics today. It combines both the intensely personal experience of Sister Bernard with the political exploration that defines Lazarus. Morality and ethics are being constantly questioned, but nothing about this issue feels like a lecture. Instead, this single-issue story is capable of challenging readers just as it thrills them.

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Apr 22, 2015

    In addition to some issue with the main character, this issue also seems to meander quite a bit without actually going anywhere. As I said earlier, the exposition is well written, and far from boring. That being said, it often feels like the issue could havemoved at a far brisker pace than it actually did. Hey, at least the art is gorgeous. Michael Lark does a great job with every aspect of the book – from human made constructs to natural environments to the characters themselves. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Matt Garza Apr 23, 2015

    I've called Lazarus somewhat Shakespearean, which i still believe it to be, but if someone who had never read this before asked me to describe the plot, I'd say it's a futuristic likeness to Game of Thrones, only instead of dragons, and magic, we're grounded in a plausible world, with enhancements in science and the utter dissipation of the middle class. Again, I'll say that you'll definitely get your money's worth with this title. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - John F. Trent Apr 22, 2015

    Lazarus #16 had its really good moments, but it also had its pitfalls. The overall design of the issue with the lengthy journal entries drew out the comic and took away from what a comic is all about, words with pictures. Instead we just got words. On the other hand, the internal conflict Rucka is able to portray is wonderfully done and I am not sure he would have been able to do it without the long-winded journal entries. Lark's artwork was awe-inspiring on some pages, but also felt disconnected in others. The issue was moving, but complacent at the same time. Read Full Review
