Lazarus is set in a dystopian future where warring dynasties send near-immortal warriors to settle their differences. The protagonist is Forever Carlyle, of House Carlyle, whose loyalty to her family is tested as she learns about her past. Since the series began, I've always thought that Lazarus was underrated—Greg Rucka's world building talents are virtually unrivaled, and Michael Lark's art is fantastic. In more recent issues, Rucka has brought in a rich supporting cast from the outskirts of the Carlyle territory, showing he's just as interested in the downtrodden masses as the house royalty. Lazarus creates a world that would be horrific to live in, but it sure is a pleasure to visit.
