    1. The Wolf Beneath the Tree brings us a step closer to apex of the Lucifer series, which is apparently the end of the world in the wake of Yahweh’s departure. The main story follows the Norse wolf Fenris who, feeling that the Armageddon/Ragnarok is closing in on the Creation, goes to spill kin-blood on the roots of the Yggdrasil. Lucifer teams up with Michael and Elaine to do what they can to stop everything from collapsing…This volume fills some gaps about the tale of the Lightbringer, back w [...]


    2. Loved the backstory with Lilith and the fall. Oh, you angels, just get over it! And bringing in some more of the Endless siblings made me squeal.


    3. By all rights this issue is kind of a mess but it still weirdly works for me. I love the Lilith issue and how she kind of planted the seed in Lucifer's mind for rebellion. Although how exactly did she have a kid with that other angel because I thought none of the angels could have children [except Michael via loophole]? Does her magic vagina just trump the angels being sterile? Also why is the baby like the rest of the Lilim and not an actual half angel like Elaine? Oh the questions we will neve [...]



    4. Boží stolec je prázdny a všehomír sa rozpadá. Severský niečo ako boh Fenris - vlk, ktorý má zničiť svet narušením Yggdrasilu sa v spúčasnej svetovej situácii na cestu vydáva splniť svoj údel. Michael tvorca odmieta Luciferovu pomoc na záchranu sveta, čo sa zlomí až po večeri u Večného Osudu.


    5. I should have reread the last couple volumes before diving into this. I still enjoyed it, especially the Lilith story, but I think I'll appreciate it more upon a future reread with more of the past storylines fresh in my head.


    6. Brilliant beyond words. Any graphic novel that has me running to the internet to use google translate and look up angel names is doing something right!!






    7. The Wolf Beneath the Tree is probably the hardest volume in the series for ne to review. In some ways, it’s a mess. A series of one-shots combined with a highly disjointed main arc which introduces a flux of new characters makes for bumpy storytelling, and the second issue contained here—regarding a demonic meeting of the minds and a law clerk/punk rocker—could easily have been left out of the series entirely and nothing would have suffered for it. But for all the moments of frustration, t [...]


    8. Perhaps my favorite scene in the entire Lucifer run occurs in this volume. Lucifer, Elaine, and Michael have all met for dinner and conversation in the home of Destiny of the Endless. After Michael and Elaine have left, Lucifer tries chatting with Destiny (who he unsuccessfully tried to get a wager from earlier regarding whether or not Lucifer would do something not written in his book). Destiny is his usual incredibly formal and stiff self, which infuriates Lucifer, who has always had issues wi [...]


    9. “Try as you might, you can never be your own father.”Since Ted Naifeh did the art for the Neutral Ground story line, we get to see characters from How Loathsome make a cameo appearance. This one shot ultimately didn’t have an impact on the overall story line, however. Next, we get another one shot featuring the backstory of Lilith back before Lucifer rebelled against heaven and Mazikeen was still a kid. Gabriel (who died in a Hellblazer story line before the Lucifer series began) also appe [...]


    10. I was starting to fear the series was tapering off, but here it starts building toward the final climax (4 volumes left follows basically the same trajectory as Sandman, it seems) and, though this arc seems to be mostly bridge material, it is damn good bridge material.Since God's abandoned the universe, bad stuff has started. Michael wants to save the universe. Lucifer just wants to stick to his own universe and let our universe die, as you'd expect. Elaine joins them in a meeting with Destiny w [...]


    11. It's the end of the world and I feel fine. With God gone and his Name no longer holding everything together, the wolf Fenris emerges to destroy Yggdrasil while Michael journeys to take advice from Destiny of the Endless.The first part of this book tells the story of Lilith, Adam's first consort, and her liaisons with both Michael and Lucifer before the Fall as well as her part in it. This is an interesting story in fleshing out a character who has previously only existed as mother to the Lilim. [...]


    12. "Lucifer Vol. 8: The Wolf Beneath the Tree" follows the vendetta of the great wolf Fenris of Norse mythology against the banquet guests who long ago betrayed him, and the fate of a young man who bludgeons wife and child to death; when these plotlines merge, all creation, even Lucifer's domain, is imperiled. Lucifer now faces a deadly new threat to both his Creation and our own. Fenris, the acme of ruin and destruction, has awoken into Gods absence, and he stalks the World-Tree Yggdrasil where he [...]


    13. These are interesting, but I always feel like I'm missing things. Of course, that could be because I happen to be reading them a bit out of order-I only read the ones I get through paperbackswap, so I'm kind of at the mercy of that. Still, interesting is the furthest I really get with these, never really that attached or invested in how the plot is going.


    14. I know the book said Lucifer on the cover and it said that Mike Carey was the writer but this really felt like Sandman, written by Neil Gaiman. I am sure the appearances of both Delirium and Destiny helped me get that impression, but there were other factors that reminded me of the classic Vertigo series. There were the references to North Mythology (Fenris and his history) and how horrifying they were when put into a real world narrative. There was also a human character, whose entire life was [...]


    15. And thus we come to volume 8 of Mike Carey's Lucifer, in which backstory is given, a madman is ridden like a chariot of doom, and a wolf eats his way to the end of the world.The first third of the book fills in the gaps about Lilith and the Lilim (including everybody's favorite bloodthirsty assassin, Mazikeen) and the creation of the host's Silver City. While it's interesting to see the lead-up to Lucifer's fall, the real action takes place in the rest of the volume, wherein Lucifer, Elaine, and [...]


    16. The series takes a sudden shift into the dark with this volume. Throughout the previous volumes we've been made aware that something is brewing in the realm of the Norse gods, and in this book we finally see exactly what has been wrong. And it's intense. Due to the way Carey sets this up, I don't feel like it's a spoiler to say that essentially Ragnarok is on its way, and the central characters must do everything in their power to stop it. As the story builds we get a sense that the evil forces [...]


    17. One of the three best Lucifer volumes. It's hard to choose which one of these is the absolute best, and a lot of it comes down to personal preference. I'd rank this one third simply because of the first story; "Neutral Gound", a side story from before the last arc which should clue you into it not having much bearing on the main story. It's a decent read but seems to lack some emotional weight to the proceedings. #50 is Lilith's origin story and it is brilliant, also sowing the seeds of Lucifer' [...]


    18. So Lucifer quit his job as ruler of Hell in the pages of Sandman.Now God has quit his job as ruler of Heaven in Lucifer.You'd think in today's economy, one would try to hold on to their jobs but I digress.So it's up to Lucifer and Michael and Mike's daughter to keep the fabric of existence held together.Meantime Fenris from Norse Mythology is trying to make the whole thing crumble.CoolActually, the story has content and style for once (whereas it simply had style previously with little content). [...]


    19. The cosmos is unraveling now that God has left and the Word is fading from all of His creation. Since it appears to be the End Time, Fenris the Wolf returns to fulfill his destiny as part of Ragnarok. Lucifer, Michael, and Elaine join forces to stop him from reaching Yggdrasil, the World Tree, but things go very, very wrong. After watching Lucifer win through wit and foresight for seven books, it ups the ante considerably to see him struggle and even fail, making this one of the most exciting ar [...]


    20. A fantastic take on Lucifer, the fallen one, and his stance towards both god and Michael his brother. A tale that both adds to the meaning of Sandman, but draws heavily from it too.While retired, Lucifer undertakes a job from Heaven, which grants him a letter of passage. This sets the universe on course for its end, and results with a new Creation, Lucifer's one, the death of Michael, but also the transfer of his powers into Elaine Belloc and of course Yahwehs quitting of his role, leaving his p [...]


    21. Despite the volume's title, the highlight here is clearly the story of Lilith and her children. Every other time I've seen her written about, she's treated as a forgotten character who managed to slip out of the story, so it's nice to see her reverse the process here, coming out of nowhere to take over as the chief instigator of the coming war.That said, I like the Fenris story too, and the way that an entirely different religious system is grafted into the otherwise Judeo-Christian story. Stran [...]


    22. Lucifer is just constantly awesome. You'd think I as a reader would have trouble relating to a story where humans are used by demons and then cast aside like tissue, but the series remains consistently engaging. There are several tricksters in this book, one of the best features. And Lucifer goes up against a bigger baddie, although he's still a jerk. Also fans of Sandman will appreciate the guest appearance of one of the characters. Um, according to , the same people who read this read Ann Coul [...]


    23. Mike Carey, Lucifer: The Wolf Beneath the Tree (Vertigo, 2005)And so the Lucifer endgame begins. We veer back around to the Norse mythology which both Gaiman and Carey touched on at various times throughout Sandman and Lucifer, but it seems that Fenris, the great Norse wolf, will play a much larger role in the end of the world than we might have previously guessed. Up to the standards of the rest of the series, which is to say, it ain't Sandman, but it's the best of the spinoffs. ****


    24. One thing I really like about this series is the way it's broken up into smaller stories but still has a major plot arc and plot that develop with every volume. In this volume there is a flashback to the children of Lilith and the rebellion in heaven and the beginning of a very important relationship is explained beautifully. The greater plot develops with the unravelling of the world and the Fenris wolf attempting to devour everything. With this volume I realised how close I was to the end of t [...]
