“Lazarus is an absolutely tremendous book…”—Multiversity
The New York Times bestselling and multiple-Eisner-winning creative team of Greg Rucka (BLACK MAGICK) and Michael Lark (Daredevil) will release the second prestige hardcover in their ongoing critically acclaimed dystopian series LAZARUS this May. This collects LAZARUS issues #10-21, and includes extensive backmatter exploring the Lazarus world as well as behind-the-scenes looks at the creation of the book.
In LAZARUS: THE SECOND COLLECTION, sixteen Families have gathered together in the exclusive luxury confines of Triton One to resolve the emerging conflict between Carlyle and Hock, and they’ve brought their Lazari with them. Deception and war go hand in hand, culminating in a final revelation that will truly change everything for Forever Carlyle.

Praise for LAZARUS:
"Rucka and Lark have started us on a journey that'll ask the hard questions about what it means to be human while forcing us to take a long, hard look at the world we live in." —IGN
"This book is an intense look at family, prosperity, and Waste." —Culture Mass
"Mixes political issues, social issues, science fiction and criminal intrigue into one pot… This is worth checking out." —ComicList
“This is a comic that above all else grapples with what is perhaps the ultimate question of speculative fiction, and certainly one of the oldest—what if we didn’t need to die?”—Nerdspan
