The eighth volume of writer Mike Careys beguiling LUCIFER series continues the saga of the Lightbringer, who 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 is destined to end of the world. Only Elaine Belloc, the Archangel Michael and Lucifer stand in his wayand their efforts may only hasten the end of all things. THE WOLF BENEATH THE TREE also showcases the special stories Lilith and Neutral Ground.

The Sandman spin-off comic book Lucifer rebounds from recent doldrums with three story arcs: a novella, a short story, and a novel. The novella, "Lilith," shows how that precursor of Eve is responsible for two fallen angels (one of whom becomes Lucifer, so this is an origins legend for him) and the remaining angels' abode after Lucifer's secession. The short story, "Neutral Ground," is a grimly amusing demon-possession romp: while a failed punk rocker's soul is occupied by a high-level demonic confab, a transvestite guard-demon absconds with his body--and conscience. The novel 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. While Lucifer regulars Gross and Kelly limn the big tale, P. Craig Russell fills "Lilith" with his classically perfect figures, and Ted Naifeh (see also How Loathsome, 2004) peoples "Neutral Ground" with spiky characters. Ray Olson
