You think your job is tedious? Any job would turn boring after doing it for eight billion years—even if you’re an immortal. That's what happened to Lucifer Morningstar. Ever the rule breaker, the archangel rebelled about three seconds after creation and was given the dubious responsibility of ruling Hell and doling out suffering to humans.
Welcome to the DC Comics Art Academy, a series of art tutorials recorded at Comic-Cons throughout 2015 and featuring many of the gifted and unique artists working for DC today. In today's installment, celebrated illustrator Jill Thompson shows how she creates comics using her signature watercolors by drawing a character for which she's become known—The Sandman. Utilizing tools and processes not typically used in comic art, it's a truly unique demonstration caught at last year's San Diego Comic-Con.
DC All Access is giving the devil his due! In this new clip, we look at Lucifer Morningstar's compelling comic book history, from his debut in the pages of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman to his new ongoing Vertigo series by Holly Black and Lee Garbett, all in time for his small screen debut.

Anyone who believes that dreams are easily forgotten clearly hasn't read The Sandman, Neil Gaiman's exemplary modern fantasy that began in 1988 and went on to become one of the most acclaimed comics of the 1990s. Still highly readable, the series helped establish Vertigo as an imprint for sophisticated and cutting-edge comics while cementing Neil Gaiman as one of the greatest authors of the modern age. In this DC All Access comics clip, we look back at the series, breaking down the beloved storyline from the earliest volume to the most recent.
