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?

iZombie Cooks Up Some Brain Food

If you’re a fan of iZombie, The CW’s just-returned adaptation of the classic Vertigo comic, then you know the key role that food plays on the show. iZombie’s take on the walking dead is far from the lumbering, decomposing, eating-straight-out-of-the-skull zombie that we’ve seen in most movies and shows. These zombies are intelligent, fully sentient individuals indistinguishable from the rest of us…provided they get their brains and a good spray tan.

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.

Putting Preacher to Rest

Seven weeks ago I stepped onto a new path, and that path was called PREACHER by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. With the AMC television adaptation kicking off, I was curious about the similarities and differences in comparison to the comic, and honestly, I wanted to see what the fuss was about. Anytime PREACHER came up among friends, nearly everyone commented enthusiastically about how much they enjoyed the series when it came out and how I should brace myself because, "Man, it gets weird."

Not Your Average Saint

I can't claim to know a lot about religion. My time spent in Sunday school and in various pews is far in the past. But I'm relatively certain about one thing when it comes to Catholicism: There are saints for everything. You can pray to the saint of travelers, the saint of sailors, the saint of animals, and yes, even the saint of dental diseases (it's St. Apollonia, in case you're curious and/or in need). But Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's PREACHER has a different sort of saint, one you won't discover in your Patron Saints 101 class—The Saint of Killers.
