Review:

“Lucifer Vol. 2: Father Lucifer” has beautiful artwork and a main story with potential, but it strays in way too many directions to be cohesive.  I’m hoping that the next volume stays with a single storyline.  Word of caution:  If you’re coming to this comic because of the television show, it is almost completely different.  In my opinion, the show is better.  Your mileage may vary.
