    Big Comic Page - Indiana “Indy” Marlow Dec 22, 2018

    Its a unique piece of storytelling, delivered in a way that youd struggle to see replicated in any other comic, jumping seamlessly between historic poetry, mystery and philosophical musings on free will and determinism. I recently reread the revamped Lucifer from a few years back, which was interesting in its own way but never felt like that much of a continuation of the original series. It was too flashy for my liking, with too many jokes and not enough depth or class. These last few issues however have really managed to capture that distinctive feel and intrigue of the first run and this series just keeps getting better and better. Read Full Review

    Lucifer remains as one of the darkest and most thought-provoking comics currently in print; wonderfully written and brilliantly illustrated,Lucifer (2018-) #3 is an impressive work of modern visual storytelling. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Sam Philpot Jan 16, 2019

    Lucifer issue #3 weaves together stories from the point of view of multiple characters, building them up through the telling of their own life story. Its gripping to see how theyve all come in contact with the King of Hell before, and what they may present to him now that he isnt the all-powerful being he once was. As number of relevant characters become more prominent and the disturbing sorrow slowly rises around John Decker. Lucifer keeps your teeth sunk into its issues, and your mind craving the answers to the questions it has brewing.   Read Full Review

    The classic Lucifer segments are short this issue, which lets Decker and Old Man Lucifer dominate. That may be for the best, as I've consistently found those the most compelling stories. As this series comes further into focus, it's likely to only get better. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Jan 7, 2019

    So, while most of The Sandman Universe titles have been a letdown to me thus far, Lucifer is shaping up to be what its protagonist once was mythologically, and seems to be again in these pages, a beautifully shining light amidst the drudgery on the weekly racks. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Mark Buckeldee Dec 19, 2018

    Lucifer #3 is a moody and atmospheric story with literary references, philosophical musings, mystery and revelations. The two stories touch on similar themes while being distinct visually. A gorgeous book that makes you want to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Epicstream - Brian McCormick Dec 27, 2018

    The end result is that it feels more like a mix-mash of stories reminiscent Marvel's Strange Tales format than a solo title. Read Full Review
