So apparently the comic Lucifer gets an adaptation that has nothing to do with the comic?
it's exactly like iZombie. Sounded like absolute shit and has only the barest of similarities to the comic but actually is pretty entertaining once you give it the benefit of the doubt.
I had forgotten abut this.
Why did you think it was a good idea to bring it up?
i will watch it if they promise to put in more of this gorgeous milf comedian
to be fair the actual Lucifer comic didn't have much of a plot either
though the current show looks like an abomination
Lucifer was a spoiled brat who finally realized in the end that daddy had given him everything he asked for. He couldn't live with the fact that the game was over before he even started playing and fucked off to the void.
is the comic any good, is it too preachy, or fedora-y or is it legitimate good book
Technically it begins with Sandman, which is where Lucifer resigns from his post as Lord of Hell.
It's not absolutely necessary to read that first, but Sandman's fucking great so you might as well.
Well, there is a three part miniseries that leads into the main comic (basically setting up the story) and you need to read some Sandman if you want to know why Lucifer is living on earth playing piano in a bar.
i remember why people have such a hard time trying to get into comics now
I've been meaning to read Sandman, for that i can just pick up Vertigo volume 1 and go from there
The Sandman connection is mostly just background info. It will have you understand the setting (why are angels in charge of hell, who are these Endless douchebags, etc), but it is not necessary to understand the story itself.
>turning Lucifer into a police procedural TV show
It's not a bad procedural and the main character is pretty charming. Way better than iZombie.
But that said, I fucking hate that they even dare mention the comic book since it has fuck all to do with this show.
>>Obligatory hideous racism
It's assholes like you who will get us bombed with asteroids when the aliens finally do show up and see that we can't tolerate the tiniest variation even within our own species.
