Finally, after tracking down and confronting the Alpha and Omega, he left our universe behind—apparently forever. But now Lucifer is back—wounded and weakened, but suave and savvy as ever. And he’s about to be handed the biggest mystery in the history of Creation: God has been found dead, and the Lightbringer is the prime suspect in His murder. To clear his name and reclaim his throne, Lucifer must solve the Deicide himself. But even with help from the disgraced archangel Gabriel, the task is daunting. To maintain the status quo in both Heaven and Hell, angels and demons alike are determined to pin the crime upon the First of the Fallen—but it will be a cold day in either realm before the Devil fails to get his due.

Honestly, I don’t know how I feel about this graphic novel. On one hand, it is an interesting buddy cop scenario of Lucifer and Gabriel, but despite being the first volume in a series, I felt I was missing large parts of the backstory. It doesn’t help that it refers to Hellblazer at one point, and then I was left wondering about the universe that it is set in. Moreover, the chapters feel disparate and don’t flow well enough, and the last one comes out of nowhere with that demon kid and Satanism. It just didn’t come together well enough. The artwork is, well satisfactory, though I must point out the Ken-doll-ness of the characters – that was a bit hilarious. It is gruesome and gory at some points, but not so horrific. The flaying was a bit, though. I think readers of the same universe would find it intersesting, because for newbies it is sort of confusing.
