Lucifer: Childhood's end (Part II)

And with deep aplogies for the delay, we dive in to the second part of the third story arc for Mike Carey's grand story, Lucifer. The first part can be found at http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/5317824.html.

Without further ado, let us continue on to the story itself. When we last left the world of Lucifer behind us, the angelic host was preparing to invade Los Angeles to claim Lucifer's gate guarded by a Japanese Demon and the countless times incarnated soul of a hostile baby, an insane angel was experimenting on Archangel Michael and a messed up angel experiment was about to kill Elaine's real father.

Lucifer: Childhood's end (Part I)

It is once again time to dive back in to the wonderful and frightening world of Lucifer with the storyline Children and Monsters, with this post consisting of 7 pages of each of the 22 page issues, to the sum total of 28. One of the really crazy things about the Lucifer comic is that each storyarc has massive implications and changes everything in the story until the next storyline. It gives it a certain breathless pace that makes it seem a much longer than it actually was. I will split this storyline two posts to get it done, with this being the first one, for ease of reading and posting.

Before going to the story, a brief note. I saw Mad Max: Fury Road this weekend and I do actually implore people interested in it to see it at the movie theater, as it is a movie that needs to be experiences. My weirdest realization after walking out of the movie theater was that I had just seen a R-rated destruction fest with a 150 million dollar budget with visuals and effects to match which also was one of the most feminist movies I had seen in ages. It was so awesome. Another awesome thing is that George Miller, the creator, has concepts for two sequels of which he has a script for one already. The name of the script? Mad Max: Furiosa. If you saw the movie and that name doesn't make you squel with joy, I have no words.

After that detour, let us get to the story at hand.

And pieces are set... )

Lucifer: Hope and Innocence

It is time once again to return to the wonderous world of Mike Careys Lucifer. The next big arc shall be Children and Monsters,  but before that there were two one-shot issues which both tied very heavily to that story arc, so I will be posting them now here before doing a post on that arc. Also, Fox officially picked up Lucifer which shall be a police procedural. While reading these stories, consider that the story Fox saw Lucifer police solve crimes.

Scans from two 22 page issues, with 7 pages per issue.

Lucifer: Seeking a Path

Greetings one and all

Since it has been ages I've done a post here, I apologize in advance for any breaches. The scans here are from three 22 page issues, seven pages per issue, and they comprise the first story arc of Lucifer: A Six Card Spread.

Slightly over a decade ago there was a fantastic comic book series called Lucifer, a spin-off from Sandman where Lucifer had quit as the ruler of Hell. It was written by Mike Carey, was 75 issues long and utterly awesome. Especially when read as a whole, as you can see several allusions to the end already in the beginning. I was reminded of this series a short while ago as I again saw reminder about the Lucifer TV series they are making. I am not commenting anything more on that as my mind is still processing the concept. So, after a discussion with another poster about doing scans of this comic, I present to you the glory that is the first story arc of Lucifer. And yeah, I don't know why I had to do that intro either.

And by the way, before the cut, there are so many trigger warning for this story

Welcome to the world of Lucifer )

Ultimate Fantastic Four #54: Salem's Seven Part 1

ultimatefantasticfour54preview

After Mark Millar left Ultimate Fantastic Four, a new writer came in and started writing the book. His name is Mike Carey, better known for his work with the series Lucifer and The Unwritten. During his run, the Ultimate Fantastic Four faced a lot of odd figures and notable figures, including Thanos of all people. However, this here is the last story arc for the series (regular anyways, since what comes after this is a tie-in to Ultimatum) and that’s the focus.

X-Men Legacy #300: "ForgetMeNot"



X-Men Legacy has had a weird history. It started as basically a book starring Charles Xavier. Then, it turned into a book starring Rogue. Then finally it was a book starring Xavier's son Legion.

So, naturally, the grand issue #300, the series finale, gives us a story... that's not about any of them.

The Unwritten Fables, Part 1: The Summoning

"The Unwritten Fables," a five-part The Unwritten story arc in which Tom Taylor meets the cast of Bill Willingham's Fables, begins...



'Let's just say that my wish list of "Fables" characters that I was really, really desperate to write was very large, and thanks to Bill's generosity, I was able to write all or most of them.'

- Mike Carey

The Unwritten #31

The War of Words begins. With the Cabal making an open attempt to kill everyone Tom Taylor has contacted during this quest ( and I do mean everyone), Tom Taylor is thru hiding.

To quote Manitou Raven: "We make great war."

Tom Taylor strikes back! )

God Help the Girl*

So, along with Superman Secret Identity being re-released earlier in magazine form, DC re-released My Faith in Frankie.

I strongly recommend that you shell out some cash money for it, if you haven't read it already.

It's a proto-Minx book about a young woman with her own personal God - Jeriven, the God of the Heart's Fires.

Origin story ahoy )
