    1. Wow! I don't normally drift outside of my Capes and Tights comfort zone when it comes to graphic novels, but I had a few of my pals shove this one toward me.Thanks, guys!I may not be thanking you for Chew don't get too excited.So Eve (or Forever), is the Lazarus of her Family. This means she has special regenerative powers and goes around exacting punishment on folks who betray her mafia-style clan. Evidently, the world is a dystopian wasteland, resources are scarce, and there's no real form of [...]


    2. In the future there will be no countries or governments. The world will be controlled by the wealthiest families. Anyone who serves the family is considered serfs and will be protected. Everyone else is Waste. Each family will have a Lazarus - a family member created to serve and protect the family and its possessions, by whatever means. Like the real Lazarus, these creations can bounce back from almost any amount of damage, including near death. Forever is the Carlyle family’s Lazarus and her [...]


    3. The Montagues and the Capulets are two rival families, but a boy from one family and a girl from the other one falls in love with each other Sorry, wrong story. In the future the world is controlled by wealthiest families (no, I am not talking about our present: it is easy to become confused here), there are no countries, or governments; every family takes care of its serfs. Every family is protested by a created (artificially created, not old-fashioned way) so-called Lazarus who is practically [...]


    4. Waiting for the Redeemer from Above?There is no shortage of dystopian tales featuring heroes who gradually learn that they are not really who they think they are, and it remains to be seen whether Lazarus will be able to distinguish itself from the competition. While both Rucka and Lark are competent storytellers who know how to patiently establish characters and build a fictional world, I have at this early stage some doubts about the premise.We are introduced to a world that is not controlled [...]


    5. Dayum girl.Honestly I really liked the art and the concept of this g-novel. I feel like this is one of those series which can really pull you in with its action and interesting plot and schemes. The characters seem extremely complex and I can't wait to find out what happens next with them and their little plans! Also, Eve is a hottie + a tortured bad ass. I mean, that's the winning combo peeps!


    6. Dystopian series by Greg Rucka and drawn by Michael Lark about a time in the future when the world is ruled not by governments or even multinational corporations but by rich families--think Renaissance Medici and Borgia families--who are murderous, incestuous, betraying, all that. What's new here? Well, each family has a Lazarus, who can't (easily?) be killed, obviously, who protects it. The Carlyle family has Forever (bad name, ugh). We seem to be setting up for a war between families--why have [...]


    7. Rucka's built a fascinating world, and he does it, in part, by throwing the reader in head-first. It's the near future, resources are scarce, and government apparently non-existent. Resources are managed by the mafia-like Families, and serving a Family is the only protection you can get. The rest are Waste, and on their own. So many writers would try to pull us in with pages of exposition. Rucka just tosses us in and lets it all unfold around us. I think that's part of why it works so well, and [...]


    8. America, sometime in the future. It’s a libertarian’s dream as the durn govm’t’s gone! Except society has devolved into a feudal-type state where ruling families control vast fiefdoms and the people are divided between the Serfs (who work for the families) and Waste (those who do not but live on their land).Resources are scarce for everyone but the families. They keep control with the help of enforcers called Lazarus (what’s the plural – lazaruses? Lazarii?), a genetically enhanced m [...]


    9. Buddyread with the Shallow Comics Readers for Indie week. Thank gods they gave me an excuse to finally dig this up. This is a grand old tale, Shakespearean in scope, and widescreen cinema in feel. Lazarus is a futuristic horror tale when the Republicans get their way and *all* the money belongs to a tiny number of kings. I am *all* over this - so fucking sick of naive tales of dystopian evil despotic governments that ruin everything, as if a huge bureaucracy could ever lumber towards anything wi [...]


    10. Bullet Review:F$&@ing awesome. I didn't realize that it GOT BETTER from the already amazing first issue.And Joacquim Morray is a dream.Where is volume 2?!?! I NEED VOLUME TWO STAT!!!!5000 stars.Full Review:Forever "Eve" Carlyle is the "Lazarus" of the Carlyle family (Stephen, Jonah, Johanna, and Beth with the patriarch, who I believe is Malcolm, but I don't have the book near me to check). This basically means she's nearly invincible - in the beginning panels she is attacked in a Carlyle fac [...]


    11. Aaargh. The art was pretty average. I'm not saying it was ugly but it was. And it's a major put off for me in graphic (sic!) novel.The plot is sort of interesting, pretty harsh dystopian world looks cool and ruthless. The drama is on Shekespearean level - two families trying to dominate on the ruins of what used to be California (or something), involving everybody around them, especially their invincible, almost immortal Lazarus (nomen omen) offsprings. Lazarus line is pretty cool, especially Fo [...]


    12. 4 Blood can't erase feelings StarsWhat can I say, my friends? There is nothing not to like here. A violent dystopian future where most of the human race is Waste; elite families in control of the scarce resources via extreme violence; dysfunctional families full of jealousies and betrayal; a genetically engineered and modified heroine who never dies - or better she dies and come back to life every time, like Lazarus - called Forever, the tip of the sword, the shield of the Carlyle family, whom i [...]


    13. Comprised of the series first four issues, this debut volume written by Greg Rucka, and illustrated by Michael Lark with the colors done by Santi Arcas, is a dystopian science fiction story that definitely holds promises. I actually liked it even if it's only a hundred pages long. My review for this graphic novel collection is positive enough although I can't say yet what is in store for the rest of the series, seeing as the four issues of Lazarus felt like watching a pilot for a TV show. With t [...]


    14. This is sci-fi dystopian done right. I wasn't entirely sure what this was all about when I began other than knowing it was a dystopian world where there's a fair amount of 'families' who control most of the population and each one has a 'lazarus' who is a defender/soldier for their family. This idea is fairly simple but when you add in the beautifully drawn artwork with characters who are easy to identify and like, and also the interesting abilities which the Lazarus has, you get a pretty cool s [...]


    15. Not a bad start to a series. This is set in a dystopian future where the world population is divided into "Families" who rule their own piece of dirt, "Serfs" who serve them and then the vast majority who are just trying to survive - also referred to as "Waste." Has a very "Godfather" like feel.The Patriarch of the Carlyle family has six he calls "children" - but one is not really his. The Lazarus - the tip of the family sword - genetically modified for violence and rapid recovery - even from de [...]


    16. A promising idea and a promising series!In a post-apocalyptic society, select few families own all the resources, including land and supplies and people. The families have Lazaruses to protect them. My understanding is that a Lazarus is a genetically engineered human that has modifications that allow them to survive major trauma and injuries to the body. In the case of the Carlyle family, their Lazarus is named Forever, and she thinks she is a daughter and sister of the family. She's wrong.This [...]


    17. Reading a Greg Rucka book comes with the expectation that its going to be good but Lazarus, his creator owned title with Michael Lark, is just so good that I wondered why I wasn't reading more Rucka.In a few issues, Rucka has a build a very detailed world and some compelling characters to populate it. The heroine of the book is Forever Carlyle and she is the Lazarus of the ruling elite that has divided up North America of a dystopic future into fiefs. A Lazarus is a sort of super solider that ca [...]



    18. I've heard all kinds of buzz about this, and I see what people like, but I feel like I've seen this beforeIt's trying to be Brubaker/Philips, but Rucka is usually decent enough, so I'm hoping there's more to it than this.I actually found the characters in-fighting of the family to be boring and predictable, a well powered family where there's some incest and in-fighting? Doesn't sound at ALL familiarI like the stuff with the other Lazarus, Joachim, there's some potential there, and the father is [...]


    19. I read Lazarus for a book club I attend, where it became one of our highest rated books. That didn't surprise me, as Family is a great start to the series. Eve is a strong lead character, the story is intriguing and the artwork is both detailed and cinematic (or perhaps more like a TV pilot, fitting as Lazarus is set for a small screen adaptation).My only major criticism was that the book felt a bit short, collecting just four issues and omitting the back matter from the singles, which is includ [...]


    20. There are some pretty interesting ideas in here and I am excited to learn more; all in all this is a fun sci-fi/dystopian story with just the right amount of action and drama to make me want to keep pushing forward.


    21. 41st book read in 2015.Number 111 out of 469 on my all time book list.Follow the link below to see my video review:youtube/watch?v=fyINS


    22. AN interesting adventure story. Good if that is were your tastes lie but do not expect ant humour, mysteries or enthralling plot twists.


    23. Flipping Through FloppiesI just finished off issue 25 of this series, which is the penultimate issue in Volume 5 of this series. This is a bit of an interesting book to review for my regular single-issue review series as it is not always a great month-to-month read. I've found issues to drag, introduce new characters and storylines that develop slowly, and be overly political. If I were just evaluating it on my monthly instalments, I'd likely come down somewhere around 3 stars.With all that said [...]


    24. In Greg Rucka's dystopian future, money is power and those without it are Waste. The Families are the ones with power and Forever Carlyle is a Lazarus, a Family member trained and augmented to serve and protect the family’s needs. As the codename implies, there is a lot of death involved in her life, but we quickly learn that, because of how much she understands physical death, there are a lot of unresolved emotions connected to killing that Forever should not be having. For now, she does her [...]


    25. Actual rating: 4.5 stars➽ The girl kicks serious ass.➽ There is serious blood & gore, and lots of limbs get deliciously severed.➽ There is a serious supply of treacherous assholes and devious bastards. ➽ And it's a pretty cool world. Oh yeah. The murderous crustaceans are ecstatic. They just got drunk to celebrate: want to read actual reviews for this bloody feat? Read Evgeny's. Or Jeff's. Or Anne's. You're welcome.✎ Volume 2: Lift ★★★✎ Volume 3: Conclave ★★★★✎ Vo [...]


    26. I've been keeping up with Lazarus issue by issue, and I'm telling you, it's not to late to pick it up. Do yourself a favour and hop on this train.Everything works in this comic. The dystopian premise is believable—shockingly so. It sometimes scares me to think that our society could one day end up like this. The art is wonderful, the science and action are punchy, and how can you not like such a literally kick-ass female lead? Lots of questions are still unanswered, and I can't wait until Volu [...]


    27. "Go well, Forever."This is my second time dipping my toe into Image Comics. I'm reminded of a quote from "The Godfather" by Mario Puzo: "Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer." "Lazarus" is similar to "The Godfather," but with a twist. The heroine, Forever Carlyle, is like The Bionic Woman with a family. So much suspense, I'm anxious to read the next volume!The artwork is amazing!



    28. My bookstore pitch: Conspiracy, action, power, immortal assassins. Forever fights for her Family. But why, and who are they? Powers are at war for dwindling resources while Forever questions her place. How long can her Family contain the secret of her existence?All that sugarcoating aside, I wasn't super excited going into this because I didn't love Rucka's run on Gotham Central. Gotham was well written but just, I don't know, oversimplified, maybe you could call it predictable. (And not really [...]
