My name is Sarah and I am naught but a harebrained nitwit. Why? Because I almost gave up on this most wondrous series after reading this instalment. I thought it was disappointing. And kinda sorta meh. And kinda sorta boring. So I wasn't exactly excited and enthusiastic and thrilled at the prospe...

Hundreds of thousands flock to Denver for the “Lift”, aka the job interview from hell, where “Waste” (people who live under the Families’ rule but are unemployed) get the chance to be “Serfs” (receive jobs and in return get a better way of life for them and theirs). Meanwhile, there’s a threat ag...

In Lazarus Vol.2: Lift, Rucka and Lark gradually broaden the story's scope. While the first volume's focus on the intrigant upper crust sometimes felt like watching Dallas or Dynasty (not an experience I am keen on), this second volume starts to explore life outside the family's guarded walls - a...

Fantastic! WOW! We get background on Forever, but also we see how life is for non-family - for non-serf. The waste that populate most of the planet.
Now that we're moving into volume 2, Rucka and gang open up the story with several storylines. In the first, we see Forever...

Another great Buddyread with my amazing Shallow Comics Readers for Indie week!
My God is Forever ("Eve") a hard, cold person. Raised as she was, ever at arms' length, and constantly trained in death, tactics and diplomacy, it's no wonder - but still, man did it produce results. I'm a pretty odd du...

Every bit as fascinating as the first volume. This volume gives more insight into the world of Lazarus, and gives a very welcome look at the "Waste" classes. I felt like there was more plot momentum and less exposition in this volume, and I'm feeling more and more comfortable in the world that Ru...

The first volume focused mainly on the Carlyles, one of the 1%er families that now rule the world, replacing nation states. And we met the Carlyle Lazarus, Forever, who is a kind of Ronin-type super-protector who has not yet learned she is biologically engineered. In this volume, she learns this,...

This is a volume that I was very excited to get to because I only very recently picked up Volume 1 and was blown away by how much I ended up enjoying the concept of this world and the character of Forever. In this book we get introduced to a few more of the characters such as the 'Barrets'. I hav...

This volume takes a nice close look at a part of this world that I was very interested in seeing.
The waste are the peoples of this world that aren't currently employed as 'serfs' for any of the families. I was intrigued by the social hierarchy in the first volume and was hoping that I...

The premise is still a class-stratified world: a small cohort of very wealthy families run the world. All others are either serf or waste peoples. The Carlyle Lazarus is discovering all is not as it appears on the surface with her family or the world while Rucka introduces a Waste family onto the...
