Lucifer, my friend, this has been hell of a ride.
This series started as spin-off to Sandman and knowing that it was impossible for me not to consistently compare the two. Spin-offs are almost never as good as original series and it's hard to write after such unique and imaginative author as Gaiman so Carey had uphill battle to start with yet he menages to make story that completely outshines source material.
Cold, manipulative and charismatic Lucifer makes one intriguing protagonist. It's not easy to pull of devil as main character and makes us cheer for him so alterations to original characters had to be made. He isn't biblical source of all evil, in fact I wouldn't call him evil at all. If anything he is chaotic neutral (those that don't understand what this means check Dungeons and Dragons alignment system) and angles aren't that virtuous either. They are stuborn, fanatical and full of bias.
Quality is also very consistent. Unlike Sandman series, which have which have several stories that where mediocre and few that are just plain dull, Lucifer menages to maintain more or less same quality through out the series with exception of one volume that was mediocre and one that was “just” good.
One thing where Sandman also lacked consistency are illustrations. There ranged from pasable to “omg my eyes” bad. Lucifer has similar visual style but executed lot better with exception of few stories that had quest artists.This is how Sandman should have looked like.
If I had to point out flaws that would it's very loose connection with original series. There are brief cameos from Death, Delirium and Destiny but not much else. Story doesn't draw enough from rich world it's build upon and I found it bit strange that so many major events pass without any interferance from Ethernals.
Overall a great series. If you liked Sandman you will like this Lucifer but it also works as standalone series and knowledge of Sandman storyline isn't necessary
