Lucifer Morningstar continues to work on his greatest plan yet - the creation of a new universe to rival God's - without the constraints imposed by having deities. Now, with the original gate between the two universes shattered into innumerable pieces, beings from throughout the original Creation have the opportunity to join Lucifer's new realm. But, although neither Heaven or Hell await them there, the forces aligned against Lucifer still have one or two cards left to play... and their attitude towards both the Morningstar and his refugees is far from friendly...

The Divine Comedy is the fourth collection in the Lucifer series and while it is not essential that readers are familiar with previous volumes, it does help if you know what has gone before.

The artwork is very hit and miss throughout this collection and the story is not quite up to Mike Carey's usual standard - it takes a bit of concentrating to follow the different threads that are interwoven. But it is worth it in the long run.

This collection won't be to everyone's liking, but for those who enjoy a dose of theology with their comic books this provides a good read.

Entertaining... but if you have the attention span of a goldfish you might like to pick up something a little more lightweight.
