My Favorite Monster: Facing Your Demons With Mazikeen [Fantasy Week]

mazikeen-featured

I first met Mazikeen as a teenager reading Sandman. She’s a demon in the form of a beautiful dark-haired woman, but with half a face; the daughter of Lilith and lover of Lucifer Morningstar. The left side looks to have rotted away, leaving bone and teeth and an empty eye socket. And she's my favorite monster.

The Throne Of Hell Is On The Line In ‘Lucifer’ #10 [Exclusive Preview]

Lucifer-Feat

While many may point to Death as the breakout star of Neil Gaiman's Sandman, his interpretation of Lucifer may actually be the most successful spinoff character from the uber-popular Vertigo series. Not only did he have his own ongoing series that lasted just as long as Sandman, but he is currently the star of his own television show on Fox.

So it was no surprise that Vertigo resurrected The Morningstar for a new ongoing series that lives up to the legacy of Mike Carey's classic run from the early '00s. With the release of Holly Black, Lee Garbett and Antonio Fabela's Lucifer #10 next week, DC has provided ComicsAlliance with an exclusive first look at the issue, which sees the return of several beloved characters from the original series.

Cast Party: Who Should Star in a ‘Sandman’ TV Series?

ElleCollins_CastParty

Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist. This week we’re looking at one of the most important comics of my teenage years, Neil Gaiman's Sandman.

There's been talk for years and years about adapting Sandman, with Joseph Gordon Levitt long attached to the project, but it's clearly proving a difficult task. As usual, I'm not concerned with what's actually happening. I'm thinking about what I'd like to see.

War On ‘Lucifer': One Million Moms Lacks Sympathy for the Devil, Surprising Many

lucifer-feat

Did you know that many Christians object to the Devil? It's strange but true. Since he's a character who originated in their own favorite book, you'd think they'd be even more invested in him than the rest of us. But apparently, like so many over-invested nerds, Evangelical Christians are only interested in a version of the Devil that lines up with their reading of the source material, which in this case means not only a bad guy, but the worst guy of all time, who's also responsible for all other bad things that have ever happened in the world.

Noted anti-everything trolls One Millions Moms, a group whose membership is not limited to actual moms and whose actual numbers remain vague, have chosen Fox's Lucifer, a show based on a comic written by Mike Carey that was based on a comic written by Neil Gaiman, as their latest target for one of their "let's give this thing we hate as much free publicity as possible" campaigns.

Holly Black And Lee Garbett On The Holy Resurrection Of ‘Lucifer’ [Interview]

Screen Shot 2015-12-16 at 5.06.48 PM

After many years away, the charismatic, unflinching Lucifer returns to Vertigo Comics, where he first appeared as part of the supporting cast of Sandman. A lot has changed since that time, but it looks as though he remains the same magnificent bastard that inspired some of the best creative work Vertigo has ever seen. This new series, from Holly Black and Lee Garbett, brings the character to Hollywood, and kicks off with the grandest murder mystery imaginable: the death of God. With the Almighty murdered, all suspicions turn towards Lucifer as the culprit --- forcing him to come out of the shadows to clear his name.

Taking the character brought so vividly to life in his outstanding prior series by writer Mike Carey and artists including Peter Gross and Ryan Kelly, and returning him to an ongoing series is a tough job. To find out more about what Black and Garbett plan for the character, ComicsAlliance spoke to them both about his imminent resurrection.

The Devil in Disguise: The History of The Devil As A Comic Book Supervillain

devil woodcut

Lucifer. Mephistopheles. Beelzebub. Auld Hornie. Satan. Nick. Clootie. Whatever you choose to call him, the devil has a long and storied (pun intended) history, from his humble beginnings as a nameless adversary in the book of Job to a tempter in the desert to the spokesmodel for canned ham.

The prince of the power of the air has been at the center of stories for thousands of years, canonical, deuterocanonical, and extracanonical alike. His status as an instantly recognizable symbol and a royalty-free denizen of the public domain have made him an irresistible go-to in stories where an ultimate evil is needed, including in comics.
