Lucifer deals with a puzzling message while Mazikeen places her trust in the wrong person.
Remember those flashback stories that Astro City has been spotlighting recently? Turns out that there was a reason for those all along. And who doesn't love the concept of the Bouncing Beatnik?
In this week's issue of LUCIFER, Mazikeen rallies her hellish troops to prepare for war against the Presence, the faux god sitting on the throne of Heaven. However, the Queen of Hell doesn't know that Rosemary has other plans — and other allegiances.
Meanwhile, backed by the Presence and wielding new powers, Takehiko steps forward to take revenge on Lucifer. Who will rule heaven and hell in the days to come? Find out in LUCIFER #17 from writer Richard Kadrey and artists Lee Garbett, Antonio Fabela (colors) and Todd Klein (letters)!

About the Author - IvCNuB4
IvCNuB4 likes to maintain an air of mystery by never publicly revealing his true name unless you are one of the four lucky Outhouse posters he has PM'd it to. A life-long Chicago native, he was introduced to comics by his older brother's vast collection of Silver Age issues. When he is not at his day job as an IT geek or making the most of Chicago's three months of incredible summer, he can found spending way too much time with his very large, very loud Italian family. You will never find him on the likes of Facebook or Twitter as he scoffs at the necessity of most forms of social media.
