Lucifer

You think your job is tedious? Any job would turn boring after doing it for eight billion years—even if you’re an immortal. That's what happened to Lucifer Morningstar. Ever the rule breaker, the archangel rebelled about three seconds after creation and was given the dubious responsibility of ruling Hell and doling out suffering to humans.

He didn't cause them to be evil (and doesn't appreciate you assuming so, thank you very much). Lucifer simply punished them for their own wicked actions. But, after growing tired of his day-to-day existence, the Morningstar yearned for freedom. He fatefully decided to kick out Hell's demons and damned souls and close the gates to the fiery realm.

After that, Lucifer packed his bags and moved to Los Angeles, the City of Angels. He’s been running a popular piano bar known as Lux, because who else is better suited to profit off of debauchery? During his time on Earth, the Morningstar has sparred with angels and demons, attempted to reconcile with his companion Mazikeen, and, oh yes, tried to create a new universe.

Lucifer's former position means he has to constantly grapple with the idea of destiny versus freewill. Charm and sophistication help the devil with whatever task he attempts, but can he really walk away from God's plans—whatever they may be?

In this week’s issue of LUCIFER, Mazikeen rallies her hellish troops to prepare for war against the Presence, the faux god sitting on the throne of Heaven. However, the Queen of Hell doesn’t know that Rosemary has other plans—and other allegiances.

Meanwhile, backed by the Presence and wielding new powers, Takehiko steps forward to take revenge on Lucifer. Who will rule heaven and hell in the days to come? Find out in LUCIFER #17 from writer Richard Kadrey and artists Lee Garbett, Antonio Fabela (colors) and Todd Klein (letters)!

Living with the Devil

I’ve been living with the devil for a long time. It was a distant relationship for most of my life, but has become a closer, more intimate one over these last few years. I have a whole library of books on Hell and Lucifer. As I once told a friend, I live in dread of cops or my mother walking into my office because the first thing they’ll see—right at eye level—is my shelf of devil books.
