He's faced down God Himself, and lived (and died, and lived again) to tell the tale. Now Lucifer Morningstar, the most irresistible antihero in all of Creation, is free to turn the final page on his past and begin a brand-new chapter in his legendarily eventful life.
But before he can start booking retirement cruises, there's still one small matter that requires his attention: an all-powerful entity has usurped his deceased Father's place in Heaven and is preparing to extinguish every last vestige of free will throughout the universe.
The Lightbringer has always been the contrary type, and he's not about to change his ways for anyone--or anything--just because they occupy the Throne of Light. And while the former Lord of Hell now rules only within the boundaries of his nightclub, Ex Lux, he still has powerful allies and devoted enemies--all of whom are ripe for manipulation.
Together, this motley militia is poised to take their fight from the heights of the Silver City to the depths of the Inferno. Against them stand multiple armies of angels, demons, and every dread thing imaginable that lies between them. Can Lucifer overcome their onslaught and keep his club, his city, and his indomitable independence intact? Or, after countless millennia, has the Devil's tab finally come due?
Find out in LUCIFER VOL. 3: BLOOD IN THE STREETS--the shocking conclusion to the newest saga of the Fallen One from the acclaimed creative team of Richard Kadrey, Lee Garbett, Antonio Fabela, Holly Black, Marco Rudy and Ben Templesmith, collecting issues #13-19 of the signature VERTIGO series.
