The devil goes on a weird quest in ‘The Infernal Comedy’
DC has written some good graphic novels lately. Many of them star familiar heroes taking on dastardly villains. But sometimes they decide to go a different route. When I heard of Lucifer Vol 1: The Infernal Comedy I was hoping I might get to read it. I was able to get a digital copy of this graphic novel and this is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for Lucifer Vol 1 The Infernal Comedy here:
The Prince of Darkness is missing, and from the look of things he’s not coming back. Blind, crippled, and without a penny to his name, the onetime ruler of Hell is now a wizened, unkempt old man trapped in a small town where sinister forces torment him at every turn and nothing is as it seems. He has no memory of how he got here, no hope of escape, and no way to track down his child–the only entity capable of preventing the end of the world.
At the same time, a police officer in Lucifer’s adopted hometown of Los Angeles is about to lose everything he holds dear. Desperate to find a reason for his suffering, Detective John Decker is drawn into a shadowy conspiracy whose widely varied members share a single common purpose: to kill Lucifer Morningstar.
With monsters and magicians from every plane of reality set against him, can the Lightbringer heal his broken mind and body and regain his wrongful place in the cosmos?
Lucifer Vol 1: The Infernal Comedy was an interesting read. There were times I didn’t fully understand what was happening or where the tale was taking me. As it moved along though it began to come into focus. There was plenty of violence and a familiar face or two as the story unfolded. As it came to a close it looked like balance had been restored for now.
