Prelude

Lazarus #27

Lazarus #27 by Greg Rucka

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


We find out what happens to Jonah, after he jumps into the North Sea in that stolen immersion suit.

Back to the great artwork of the original artist. The attention to detail is great.

The bilingual speech is a little distracting. Anders looks a bit like the local Gestapo guy.

Great story telling. Nicely done, showing the passage of time. And I guess the romance was inevitable.

This is the first part of a prelude to the new storyline, Fracture. That one, according to Amazon, will be published in March 2019. I preordered it…

Lazarus #28

Lazarus #28 by Greg Rucka

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The second part of a prelude to the new storyline, Fracture, which currently will be published in March 2019.

Who would have thought that I would come to care for Jonah Carlyle. He was such a traitorous bastard. There you go, now I can barely wait to find out what happens to him next. But I wouldn’t be surprised, if he was a no-show in the upcoming Lazarus #29.

This issue pretty much had the outcome I feared, based on the cover. The story was not quite what I expected though. Which is a good thing.

Yet again, beautiful artwork. Love of details, great scenes with almost hyperrealistic art. The scenes where they were fishing—the look of the water and the fishing nets for example—were just splendid. Same for the interior of their house. So many small details so beautifully rendered, really fun to see.

4.5-5 stars

One question… should I read the source books? Are they essential? They sound a bit like filler to me.
