LAZARUS GEARS UP FOR A TRIPLE THREAT THIS APRIL Two paperback collections and a new story arc all
hit stores in the same month
PORTLAND, OR, 03/23/2018 — April 2018 will see three different offerings from LAZARUS, the frighteningly plausible dystopic series created by Eisner Award-winners Greg Rucka (BLACK MAGICK, THE OLD GUARD) and Michael Lark (Daredevil, Gotham Central).
First up is LAZARUS: X+66, which collects six separate stories with characters old and new, taking place directly after the events of the Cull. Series writer Greg Rucka and series designer Eric Trautmann, as well as Aaron Duran and Neal Bailey, split the writing duties, with art provided by Steve Lieber, Mack Chater, Justin Greenwood, Alitha Martinez, Bilquis Evely, and Tristan Jones.
Next is LAZARUS #27: “Fracture: Prelude, Part One,” which sets the stage for X+67 and beyond—and the coming Fracture—by revealing what happened to Jonah Carlyle after his execution was stayed by his sister Forever.
LAZARUS #27 (Diamond code: FEB180646) will be available in comic book shops Wednesday, April 18th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, March 26th.
And finally, LAZARUS: SOURCEBOOK COLLECTION, VOL. 1 collects the first three LAZARUS SOURCEBOOKS—covering the lands ruled by Carlyle, Hock, and Vassalovka—as well as revised and expanded content to reflect the most recent developments in the series. Greg Rucka, Neal Bailey, David Brothers, Robert Mackenzie, Gareth-Michael Skarka, Dave Walker, and Eric Trautmann provide story content, with art and photography handled by Michael Lark and Owen Freeman. Packed with series-enriching maps, essays, and other informational tidbits, the Sourcebooks are essential for the discerning reader.
LAZARUS: SOURCEBOOK COLLECTION, VOL. 1 (Diamond code: FEB180583, ISBN: 978-1-5343-0515-1) arrives in comic book shops Wednesday, April 25th and bookstores Tuesday, May 1st. It’s available for preorder now via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, Indigo, and Books-A-Million.
“This is career-best work for Rucka and Lark; it’s also the best comic going for fans of
unflinching storytelling.” —Paste Magazine
“In addition to being a compelling story that’s up there with the best TV dramas,
LAZARUS is newly relevant...As the real world feels ever closer to dystopia, LAZARUS
is a powerful warning against where we could be headed.” —Salon
“LAZARUS embodies everything I want in a comic book: dystopian near-future, hard
sci-fi, badass female protagonist, contemporary social and political themes, blistering
action, a touch of pathos, art that makes me feel like I can smell the cordite and taste
the dirt.” —Comicosity
“Many a contemporary dystopian comic flirts with the idea of a world driven to ruin by
greed, but few do so in as relevant a manner as LAZARUS.” —IGN
