    Default PREVIEW: Lazarus #1

    "FAMILY," Part One
    In a dystopian near-future, government is a quaint concept, resources are coveted, and possession is 100% of the law. A handful of Families rule, jealously guarding what they have and exploiting the Waste who struggle to survive in their domains. Forever Carlyle defends her family's holdings through deception and force as their protector, their Lazarus. Shot dead defending the family home, Forever's day goes downhill from there....



    Full preview here.

    Good to see Michael Lark's artwork again. I really enjoyed his work on Daredevil.
    This should be good.

    This looks good, and Rucka always writes interesting strong female characters.

    I was pretty interested with a sure-thing creative like that but the preview just sent my anticipation through the roof.

    The preview isn't mind-blowing. But I trust in Rucka and Lark. I hope this turns out a fine book.

    I am hoping for something of the quality of Queen and Country now that Rucka is writing creator-owned stuff again. The preview looks badass, although the concept seems a bit well-trodden. But it's all about the characters and his are usually pretty great.

    added to list. was deciding between this and uncanny (singapore preview pages ftw!), but decided that rucka's premise sounds far more promising, and not to mention a buck cheaper.

    Never read any image comics. Would I need to read any before lazarus #1? Or can I dive straight into it?

    Most Image comics aren't part of a shared universe, so you don't need to read anything else than the comic itself. Enjoy.
