    1. Anne

      Is no one seriously going to say anything about Forever's Lego click-on hair?Come on, people! That is not a sort of hairline that appears in nature.It looks like she's wearing a hard plastic hat in the majority of the panels! I honestly don't understand why there aren't people lined up around the block, pointing and laughing at this nonsense. And nobody else looked all weird like that, so I started looking through the pictures until I discovered what (I think) the problem is with this thing.The [...]

    2. Donovan

      I just don't really care for Rucka's writing. I found myself bored with the archetypical characters, dialog, and standard dystopian world building. And the artwork has that Sean Phillips feel but without the spark. Tread lightly with this one.

    3. Tori (InToriLex)

      Find this and other Reviews at InToriLex Throughout the series Forever Carlyle works hard to defend her family and home. But struggles throughout the series with her own identity. This series is violent, emotional and very entertaining. Throughout the series it highlights the great disparity in wealth distribution that exists in the world, people outside of family's or their service are considered Waste. The series was inspired in part by the Occupy WallStreet movement, so many parallels are int [...]

      Very intriguing graphic novel series. A dystopian future where world economies are still in churn a half-century after collapse, and sixteen powerful companies run by family dynasties have divided up the world and replaced governments.The Carlyle Family rules corporate fiefdoms in western North America. They have advanced medicine for longevity and employ some of the population as "serfs" and provide (minimal) aid to the rest ("waste"). Forever "Eve" Carlyle has been medically rebuilt to recover [...]

      Dang. What a difference continuity makes! I'd stopped reading this series after five single issues because I couldn't make any sense of it reading it once a month. This is a story that definitely needs to be read trade by trade. I enjoyed it so much more this time around and am following the events and characters so much better. I think it helps saving all the extra-narrative stuff for the end. The single issues had quite a bit of thoughtful back matter but it was too much to keep track of broke [...]

    6. Paul

      This was really good.Good characterization and good world-building.Good story and good art.Looking forward to the second book, in what, 2 years or so?

    7. Patrick

      Really good. The futuristic aspects of the story mixed with historical financial circumstances of people was pretty cool. a possible view of the future, with a tip of the hat to the past.

      Lazarus - The First Collection by: Rucka, Lark and ArcasAuthor: Greg RuckaArtist: Michael LarkIllustrator: Santiago ArcasThis is a collection of the first nine chapters in the series.**********Warren Ellis, " Good science fiction is always social fiction: the future as a tool used to examine the present."."So I said to Greg, 'I think the solution is going to be biological.

      This book collects issues #1-9 of the Lazarus series. There are two story arcs, "The Family" in issues #1-4, and "The Lift" in issues #5-9. The story is set on a future earth where the 16 richest families in the world have split up control, replacing the current governments."The Family" revolves around the Carlyles who control the western portion of the United States and Canada. It eases the reader into the world by establishing some of the major players and showing what Forever Carlyle, one of [...]

      It feels bad somehow to slag on creator non superhero stuff that isn't overtly exploitative, but I found this to be a pretty boring introduction to the series. The premise, corporations divide the world up in an explicitly feudal manner, is a good hook to hang a sf action series on, but nothing else is this volume is of much interest. The plot, such as it is, involves the ninja robot enforcer of one of the corporate clans do various missions while gradually realizing the corruption of her world [...]

    11. Relstuart

      An interesting concept as the world is divided and owned by 16 families of billionaires. The author did a lot of research and apparently blended real people together to come up with the economic strengths of his families. The focus of the book is a female spec ops female that is the guardian of the family. She has been modified to heal quickly when injured so takes point in security and armed conflict though the families have plenty of foot soldiers. The first books has a lot of world building a [...]

    12. Myra

      2.5 stars. I'm not by any assessment totally engaged in this series after reading this, but I am interested enough that I'll try the next volume. I think the premise behind this could be really good, but so far it's falling a bit flat for me.

    13. Kristen

      Fascinating world-building with equally interesting characters and an intriguing story. Solid artwork as well.I wanna give Forever Carlyle a long hug and all the love she doesn't get from her family.

    14. Heatherblakely

      Wtf that's where it ends?Edit: Interesting story, great female character, fucked up family stuff and possibly racial tension but I can't really tell. Disappointed that it ended where/when it did.

    15. Shannon Appelcline

      Family (1-4). An enjoyable intro to this new Rucka series. I like the setup and Forever's place in her Family. The action-adventure is always good, as expected in a Rucka story. The overall plot was a bit shallow, but I'm willing to see past that in a first story. [7/10]Lift (5-9). Now that Rucka has his feet under him for this new series, this second book is phenomenal: some of his best writing. It threads three stories, and they're all great. One is a story of Forever's past, and it's intrigui [...]

    16. Samantha Beard

      Though I enjoyed Lazarus, I feel like it was Sci Fi for people who don't like sci Fi. I spent a lot of time just rushing through pages as quickly as I could. The story itself is very compelling, especially if you are interested in somewhat dystopian visions of a pretty modern world. The Lazarus themselves are very interesting, and there is still a lot to learn about them. The motives of most characters are still heavily in question by the end of this volume. I may continue the series one day, bu [...]

    17. Garrison

      This is one of my favorite things that I've read recently. The level of world building is similar to Hickman's East Of West. The collection includes a series of bios for the world and families yet-to-be-seen. All the characters feel very real, and each have an emotional weight in the storyline. Even small characters have backstories that add depth and make the whole thing more developed. It's a great first collection.

    18. Adam Spanos

      They knew they were going to get paid for this one, so they laid out a lot of source material ahead of time, and this collection includes a lot of it. The art is merely "great" and the story is standard action-movie stuff, but the world design is interesting enough that the story doesn't matter so much--all the story serves to do is to force you to tour through the world design, and that makes the effort more than worth it.

    19. Fernando Rodriguez-Villa

      Whoa. Easily most exciting thing I've read all year. The "world-building" is fantastic but doesn't get in the way of some compelling / soulful character development (the art/pacing is great too). Game of Thrones meets Dune. Invites all sorts of questions about family, responsibility social justice, etc.

    20. Fred

      An intriguing premise - the world is controlled by families of wealth, one of whom is their Lazarus (a guard/warrior/spokesman for the family). There's family treachery & secrets, connections to our own world, well written characters, and a twisting plot alongside some excellent works building.

    21. L

      Painfully average. Dull world-building, drab colours, soulless characters and boring, slow-paced writing make this book a chore to read, rather than a pleasure.
