In the future, our world is separated by territories run by wealthy, powerful families. Any people that are not part of the ruling family are known as Wastes. Within each territory is a Lazarus, a member of the family that is heavily enhanced with the latest drugs and technology money can afford. He or she is the protector of the territory and loyal agent to the family’s interests. Forever is the Lazarus of the Carlyle family. After a recent attack by their rival family, the Morrays, Forever believes there is a traitor within the Carlyles.
LAZARUS, the upcoming Image Comics series by the Eisner Award-winning creative team of Greg Rucka (Whiteout, Queen and Country, Gotham Central, Wonder Woman) and Michael Lark (Daredevil, Gotham Central, Scene of the Crime) is set in a dystopia where society has reverted to a feudal state — the elite Families who control the wealth control every aspect of the world, and those without are their vassals and serfs. Serving these powerful Families are individuals called their “Lazarus” — lethal protectors of their families’ interests. The Lazarus of the Carlyle Family, which controls the world’s genetic research and development, is a young woman called Forever. Her story starts the day she is killed.
Or – “What Might Have Been…”
This book is another recent example of something that should have been, in my eyes, more popular that it was. Spinning out of the Fear Itself mega-crossover, featuring the man who successfully took up the shield of Captain America fighting against his own past, written by Ed Brubaker, it seemed like a sure thing. So, what’s going on with Bucky and Natasha? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
In this issue: We three take a look at WE3, while Angus and Die Fledermaus duke it out. Will it be girls in bikinis, Victorian detectives, or the blind that go under the microscope? How about all three in this issue of the Major Spoilers Podcast.
