Gail Williams reaches the point of no return.
In the last issue of Lucifer we travelled beyond God’s creation and into something else. Green fields and picnics aren’t quite what you might expect, not to mention the rocked out Centaur behind the dark glasses. But there’s a god here, her name is Elaine. All the powers, all the time, and no idea what to do with them.
Back on Earth there’s Lorin, off to the store to see the world in all its angels-fighting-demons depression. So why wouldn’t he phone home to say goodbye to estranged daddy dearest?
Lucifer and Elaine are talking, they don’t seem to agree about Elaine’s non-intervention policy, but what father does agree with all his daughter’s choices? The surprise is that Lucifer wants Noema Presto to have back what was taken.
Then things start snapping back and forth. Medjine is discovered, but runs. Takehiko is bleeding on the throne of Hell, but Michael will take him to God for the vengeance he seeks. Ghost Rosemary gets left behind. Elaine gives Lucifer the Morningstar powers back. But what will he do with them?
Issue #11 of Lucifer is another installment that draws together the threads from the weaving done in earlier issues. I am so loving the way that things are coming together. While previous issues have been fun, occasionally as a reader I’ve wondered why they were meandering away from the central story, but issues like this drag them back in line and it becomes obvious why they were what they were, and yes it was worth the apparent meander.
Oh, and the last pane is fab. Love it!
A good four out of five for this one.

the wonderful she can imagine. Some of it’s very weird, and the odd bits
and pieces are a bit wonderful. Well okay, she lives in Swansea with
her husband and daughter. And the world’s most demanding cat. To find
