    The art and story work in tandem this issue to emphasise the contrast between new and old, showing the Lord of Darkness in a way we all knew him to be, as opposed to his ironic Jesus-esque image. Its this unease that makes you want to read on as the creators continue to explore the character in new and continuingly surprising ways. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Sam Philpot Dec 20, 2018

    As the series is only two issues in, there are plenty of questions revolving around it already, as good stories should have. The characters continue to become more interesting and, though any sort of overall or prominent plot still remains hidden, the tales told in the issues themselves definitely keep your attention as the characters progress through their own individual stories. Theres plenty of mystery surrounding all of Lucifer by the end of this issue, and it keeps calling you back in a good way. Read Full Review

    Two issues in, andLucifercontinues to intrigue. Dan Watters progresses the plot, looking both to the future and to the past, and does so in a way that is captivating, and thus, Lucifer (2018-) #2 is an example of well-executed multilayered storytelling. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Nov 21, 2018

    Shifting Lucifer between menacing trickster and addled old man in this series is an intriguing way to keep us on our toes, and the title remains strong. I think it needs to focus a bit more and show us how it fits with the rest of its line before too long, and give us some real answers. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Chris Nov 21, 2018

    Things are progressing, but only just.  An adherence to esoteric storytelling is a pretty big hindrance, rendering this book somewhat inaccessible to the uninitiated. Read Full Review
