A Dark Vision of the Future, Lazarus #2 Sells Out
The second issue of the Image Comics series Lazarus, Greg Rucka and Michael Lark’s dystopian vision of a feudal future, has sold out the same week as its release, prompting a second printing that will be in stores on August 28.
Lazarus follows Forever Carlyle, the powerful Carlyle Family’s “ Lazarus,” a genetically-enhanced young woman who cannot be killed and protects the Family’s interests and resources. Raised to believe she is a loved member of the Family, Forever’s world begins to fall apart as she questions the brutal acts she has been raised to believe are normal.
A striking depiction of a society where the wealthy 0.0001% hold power and the lives of the poor are expendable, Lazarus has received extraordinary critical acclaim and you can read our review.
The second printing of Lazarus #2 can be pre-ordered now (Diamond code: JUN138142) and will be in stores on August 28, the same day as LAZARUS #3.
