This series just keeps getting better.
SPOILERS ABOUND! The Divine Comedy tome finds our favorite antihero putting his finishing touches to his magnum opus: a new universe that is outside God’s authority, spun from the “big bang” of archangel Michael Demiurgos’s death and rebirth. Shortly after the seventh day of Creation, the Basanos infiltrate and wreak havoc in the said cosmos, and Lucifer arrives a tad too late to save his masterpiece. Elsewhere, it seems like almost all creatures in all imaginable planes, friends or otherwise, are keen on seeing the Lightbringer’s ultimate demise. Despite--or perhaps because of--her love for Lucifer, Mazikeen wages a war against him after he turns down the Lilim’s offer of becoming his army (hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, indeed); in the Japanese Afterlife, the Queen Izanami’s vengeful scheme is being put into action; and in the Silver City, a blasphemy is born in the heart of one of Yahweh’s favorite angels…I wonder, could this spark an encore rebellion? The excitement is almost killing me.
I loved this volume to bits because it reveals so much about Lucifer without actually stripping him off of his clandestine aura. In the previous issues he is shown as a quasi-perfect creature whose unsurpassed weapons are his strong will and razor-sharp wit. Here we are shown that like anybody else, Lucifer’s got a waterloo too.
The story is a labyrinth of literary twists and turns, with action charging along at a speed that will keep the readers on the edge of their seats. I’m quite satisfied with the reappearance of old characters and the important roles they play to the story arcs. Elaine Belloc, Michael Demiurgos’ teenaged angel daughter, has indeed grown fond of Lucifer that he is the first to come to mind when she is in danger; Meleos, creator of the Basanos, is back to take revenge on the Devil; and Cestis of the Dancing Flesh is out on an assassination mission with her bull’s eye on Elaine’s back. There are new characters as well that are not hard to love, like Gaudium, a fallen cherub who protects Elaine, and the sorceress-centaur Esa-Kira, a harbinger whose fickleness may have contributed in the Lucifer’s downfall…
Oh, and Death of the Endless from The Sandman graphic novels has a cameo. I think that deserves a special mention.
Carey is a genius, I might say, for crafting a masterpiece this good. The plot is intricately executed and is hinting that succeeding issues will contain bombs of epiphanies. Action-packed scenes, poignant events, and humurous parts are juggled nimbly. I also commend the writing, both the strong dialogues and the fragments of narration strewn across the volume that have shades of stylish poetry in them. Perhaps I have some gripe about the art, but I guess it’s also getting better compared to the previous volumes…
That said, I think this is one of the best in the series. Thumb up!
