"Greg Rucka! He is the coolest graphic writer. I love him... Lazarus is sick."
—Michelle Rodriguez, actress

“Lazarus, the dense cyberpunk Mafia world will keep them coming back to the comic racks for weeks to come… Fans of Rucka and Lark’s Gotham Central or Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ Sleeper will enjoy this rich universe.” —Booklist

Eisner Award-winning writer Greg Rucka and Eisner Award-winning artist Michael Lark return with the eagerly anticipated new story arc of the New York Times bestselling dystopian thriller, LAZARUS. A dark marriage of Divergent and The Godfather, LAZARUS #11 will blow away fans of the series with its next installment of Forever Carlyle’s journey: “Conclave.” This is the perfect entry point for those who haven’t yet started the series that critics can’t stop raving about.

Rucka hinted that the new story arc to the series will kick things up a notch, whereas the first year laid the groundwork for readers and focused on world building and character development. “This is the first time we get to see the majority of the power players in our world all in the same place—the ruling Families and, in many cases, their Lazari,” said Rucka.

“The Carlyle Family finds itself backed into a corner with the alliance of its enemies, and by the end of the story, the map of the world will be redrawn yet again. For Forever especially, this is a crucial arc—romance and betrayals will abound, and by its end, she'll be taking the first steps towards her destiny, and that destiny will quite literally shape the world. An avalanche starts with a pebble, and with this arc, the rocks are beginning to roll.”

LAZARUS #11 arrives in stores this September and will be available for $3.50. It can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code JUL140444.
