Lazarus [Volume 1]
by Greg Rucka, Michael Lark & Santiago Arcas

Eisner-winning team of Rucka and Lark's critically acclaimed new series about Forever Carlyle, the Lazarus of the Carlyle Family.

In a dystopian near-future, government is a quaint concept, resources are coveted, and possession is 100% of the law. A handful of Families rule, jealously guarding what they have and exploiting the Waste who struggle to survive in their domains. Forever Carlyle defends her family's holdings through deception and force as their protector, their Lazarus. Shot dead defending the family home, Forever's day goes downhill from there...

Collects LAZARUS #1-4 and previously only-available-online, four-page short, "Family: Prelude."
I'm on a bit of a graphic novel binge recently. After reading Blue is the Warmest Colour, and then later the first of the new Ms Marvel comics, I became slightly addicted. My collection now takes up quite a bit of shelf space, and is still growing at an alarming rate! And since I started reading graphic novels more often, I have discovered that I tend to gravitate towards Image Comics ... I'm not entirely sure why, but none of their graphic novels that I've read so far have disappointed me. I can safely say that I'm becoming a bit of a fangirl.
Lazarus is one that I keep seeing around but haven't quite gone as far as buying yet. I flirted with buying the hardback first collection at the weekend (which contains the first two graphic novel volumes and then a tonne of extra content), but it was just a little too expensive at £26! I know, however, that I will eventually end up with the paperback volumes ... it's just a matter of time! The artwork looks stunning and the story sounds really exciting, so it's definitely going to get read at some point in the near future.

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)

Well it sounds more like an investment to me ;) he he. I did a similar thing last year with the Wonder Woman and X-Men vs Avengers comics - totally addicted! I was really gutted though that I couldn't find the last few in the latter series though! :( It'd just got to the climax too. Thankfully that's when I picked up Wonder Woman lol.
I hope you get it soon, it sounds great!
