Lazarus | by Greg Rucka


Lazarus, Volume 1 by Greg Rucka, art by Michael Lark
(Image Comics, 2013, 96 pages)

Forever Carlyle (yes, that’s her name) is the Lazarus of the Carlyle family, which means she defends her family and its possessions, sometimes until death. Forever was actually created for this purpose—a, sort of, humanlike robot—so she’s not really a blood family member. She doesn’t know this, however. There is not only conflict with other families, but conflict within the Carlyle family. The art in this comic is amazing (although gory at times), and I really enjoyed the story. Volume 2 just came out, so I’ve been obsessively searching my library catalog waiting for it to become available to check out.
