Lucifer: Inferno

Lucifer, Vol. 5: InfernoLucifer, Vol. 5: Inferno by Mike Carey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lucifer returns to Hell for his duel with Amendiel severely weakened by the recent attack against him; Mazikeen goes looking for the magic feathers that will restore Lucifer to full strength, and runs into a very dangerous ex-boyfriend; and Samson from the Bible investigates Elaine’s death. However, the best story in this volume is the standalone “Bearing Gifts,” in which a demon asks a devoutly religious man for help. It’s touching and beautifully told. At this point, LUCIFER has become one of my favorite comics series ever.
