"We thankfully live in a world that’s reasonably progressive now, at least in the West. the last ten to fifteen years has seen major strides in LGBT rights to the point where it’s kind of odd NOT to regard another human being as having the same rights you have as opposed to this just being a fringe issue. This is especially true among young people, which is a fantastic glimpse into the future, and most sit-coms or dramas now have one matter-of-fact gay character, which is fine. However, 1959 was quite different and I like the idea of a guy who essentially has two secret identities. On the hand he’s a superhero, in his other life he’s an old school professional who’s respected by his peers, but secretly he’s got a private life that could ruin everything. From a dramatic point of view there’s something much more interesting about a gay superhero in 1958 because the shockwaves it would create if he came out the closet would be enormous in the period. This opening story is kind of an analogue of what was happening to the carefully managed movie stars of the day like Rock Hudson or Montgomery Clift."

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 )
