This weekend is a Con in Holland. They're small, though. But, I got two HC's from Runaways. :) I wanted to get some Lucifer trades as well, but couldn't find them. :( Guess I'll order them over the internet.

You're a big fan of Lucifer, aren't you?

Sell it to me! I'm finally considering picking it up.

While taht'd be fun, it seems a bit far to drive for just a weekend. We'll see.

Written by Mike Carey, several artists, but the main artist is a great one (whose name escapes me).

It's about Lucifer, who's handed over the keys of Hell to Sandman in that comic. He is portrayed as a sophisticated and almost charming man, according to the stereotypical gentleman-devil. Lucifer's retirement is disturbed by a series of associates from his past, and after various catalytic events, he endeavores to create a universe in competition with (and presumably against the wishes of) his father, Yahweh. This puts him on a collision course with several powerful mystical entities that have a vested interest in the new creation and draws the angelic host into the fray - including his brother, the archangel Michael Demiurgos.

The theme of the Lucifer series revolves around the free will problem. Carey's Lucifer is a Nietzschean figure representing will and individual willpower, who challenges the 'tyranny of predestination'. While in heaven's eyes this is blasphemy, Lucifer points out that rebellion (and indeed all sin) and damnation as consequence were pre-planned by his Creator. Lucifer rejects God's rule as tyrannical and unjust. Violent, aggressive, vengeful, and dictatorial aspects of heaven's rule are represented by the archangel Amenadiel, who has a particular hatred of Lucifer and leads attacks of various kinds against him, such as verbal criticism, marshalling the host of heaven as well as challenging him to individual combat. For his part, Lucifer disdains Amenadiel, treating his emotional outbursts with contempt and repeatedly defeating his assaults with Machiavellian scheming.

Yes, that 's Wiki speaking. :D

The main artist was Peter Gross I think. Not 100% sure though.

I knew. But I didn't have the heart to make two useless posts, to be honest. Where've you been the past few days anyway?

Montreal visiting my parents and my doggie.

I fear my doggie may not have a lot of time left.

Sorry about your dog Cam. I guess the best you can do is try to make him/her comfortable for as long as it takes. >.<

14. She is very much starting to feel her age, which is sad. At least she is still very happy.

Hey, I de-railed Mitch's thread.

That's what I'm thinking, yeah.
Even if I were a fan, I wouldn't to see him like this. That man isn't even a shadow of what he used to be. He'll probably lip-synch during his concert. :D
