You never know where a dream is going to take you, something that readers of THE SANDMAN are reminded of the moment they get to issue #6 of the series and the story known as “24 Hours.” A nearly standalone tale, “24 Hours” is commonly acknowledged as one of the most disturbing comics ever written.
Lucifer, the brand new #DCTV show based on the classic Vertigo series, premieres tonight. That doesn’t give you a lot of time to get caught up on his 25-year comic book history. (Though you’re welcome to try. Lucifer’s original series as well as his brand new comic are both available digitally.) Fortunately, thanks to our friend Comic Drake, you don’t have to.
LUCIFER #1, written by bestselling fantasy novelist Holly Black and drawn by Lee Garbett, is in stores today. It features the iconic Vertigo Comics character originally created by Neil Gaiman for THE SANDMAN and further defined through the long running LUCIFER series written by Mike Carey and drawn frequently by Peter Gross.
