Review: Lazarus, Vol. 1 – Family – by Greg Rucka

Lazarus, Vol. 1: FamilyLazarus, Vol. 1: Family by Greg Rucka
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’ve heard all kinds of buzz about this, and I see what people like, but I feel like I’ve seen this before…
It’s trying to be Brubaker/Philips, but Rucka is usually decent enough, so I’m hoping there’s more to it than this.

I actually found the characters in-fighting of the family to be boring and predictable, a well powered family where there’s some incest and in-fighting? Doesn’t sound at ALL familiar…

I like the stuff with the other Lazarus, Joachim, there’s some potential there, and the father is obviously more than meets the eye, but the rest of it? Kinda run-of-the-mill.

Art’s decent but I feel like this is the RC Cola version of Brubaker/Philips.

About Gavin

I'm a lover of pop-culture, from movies to music to books to TV shows to well...comics, and just about everything in between. I'm also a history buff, and spent 4 yrs getting a fancy BA in it. When I was at said University, I got my learn on AND spent all my money on CDs and VHS (yup, I'm THAT old.) However, I'm happy to discuss any topic really, as I love a good debate or just to be proven right. I'm Canadian, so I wear shorts and flip flops 9 months of the year, but no, I am NOT fanatical about hockey (I actually prefer baseball, thank my American father for that!). I love the outdoors, but don't get out enough... I've got a sick twisted sense of humour (hence why I'm friends with these Shallow folks) and believe that laughter is the best medicine...except penicillin...cause laughter won't cure the clap.

  1. Oh man. Good luck. I wrote a review on one of the comic issues and I got annihilated with hate comments…All I said was the issue was mediocre and I couldn’t tell where the comic was going.
