In the engrossing epic fantasy LUCIFER: INFERNO, supernatural characters of biblical origin act upon human emotions to reveal the dark underside of the politics of both Heaven and Hell. After a devastating battle between the forces of good and evil, a powerless Lucifer returns to the underworld that he once ruled for a duel to the death with his brother, the angel Amenadiel. But as the retired King of Hell prepares for a confrontation he cannot win, demons and angels create unholy alliances that will ensure Lucifer's eternal demise. Now pursued by angelic assassins and possessed by nefarious demons, the fallen angel must find a way to simultaneously overcome his betrayers and defeat his bloodthirsty brother.

I had reserved this book from the library thinking it was a Neil Gaiman comic. It actually is not although it follows from the storyline Gaiman had created during his Sandman series. Not having read the four graphic novels preceding this one, it would be unfair to rate it.

This could be a five-star book for just the idea of Solomon as a hard-boiled P.I. However, it does feel like a bit of a break in the story. The fight between Lucifer and Amenadiel is a bit of a letdown, given that it's pretty easy to predict that Christopher's box contains something other than just Lucifer's blood. Still it's nice to see Loki again, and even though it's not really part of the larger story, I like the "Bearing Gifts" vignette. ( )

I should have known it couldn't be sustained.  Though it's by no means bad, Inferno is probably the weakest volume of Lucifer yet.  I think it's better than the first two, but by virtue of the two excellent volumes between Children and Monsters and this, it feels comparatively weak.  "Inferno" picks up right where "Purgatorio" in The Divine Comedy left off: after his battle with the Basanos, Lucifer is weak, but he still must fight his scheduled duel with Amenadiel, a throne who he ticked off in an earlier volume.

Unfortunately, far too much of "Inferno" is buildup, and buildup concerning the politics of Effrul again.  Even though I liked that kinda stuff in A Dalliance with the Damned, it feels like filler here, when I know there are bigger issues to engage with.  Still, Lucifer once again feels like he's actually in danger-- and as Mazikeen goes out in search of Lucifer's missing wings, seeds are laid for something very interesting that I suspect will have major repercussions to come.

The side stories in Inferno are some of the weaker ones in Lucifer so far.  "Bearing Gifts" was okay (great Gaudium cameo!), but I'm not sure what it had to do with anything.  "Come to Judgement" has some interesting revelations, but is also confusing.  But, you know, more Gaudium!

Again, the standalone story is the best, but this is a good, solid volume overall. The one thing that is beginning to annoy me is the quality of the lettering. Michael's speech, for instance, looks like revenge of the B-movie. Ah well. ( )

The least good (because there is no "worst" here) of the Lucifer series so far. The largest part of the book is centred on the intrigue around the duel between Lucifer and an angel, with hell's court system and arcane rules coming into fore. The smaller stories were better, with the one totally unconnected to the main story arc (yet) about a shopkeeper stumbling into very large matters being the cream of the crop.

Seems like this was only written to tie up some loose ends and to work as a prelude to a following journey. But don't get me wrong, it still is head and shoulders above most of the other comics out there. :D ( )
