Lucifer is my new role model

Recently I read the entire series of DC Comic's Lucifer series, and I was absolutely blown away by how awesome it was.

Apart from being steeped deep in mythology, and telling more of one of my favorite sandman character's story , Lucifer himself was an absolutely delightful character. I also loved Elaine and gaudium.

Anyone else into comic books?

Lucifer, as in satan

In Neil Gaiman's Sandman series, Lucifer abdicates his throne in hell and hands over the key to hell to Dream (the main character in Sandman).

He basically decides he doesn't want to be any part of this role that his father gave him. The Lucifer series goes deep into the nature of predestination and free will. It is really lovely stuff.
