NYCC: Vertigo’s Lucifer Adds Sandman Slim Author Richard Kadrey

Vertigo’s ongoing “Lucifer” comic book series gets a new regular writer starting in January when “Sandman Slim” author Richard Kadrey takes the reins. Kadrey will replace current scribe Holly Black after 13 issues on the book.

Vertigo announced the change during its 2016 New York Comic Con panel and issued a statement on its website.

“I’m both thrilled and a little intimidated to be taking over ‘Lucifer’… Mike Carey’s run on the series was a beautiful thing. And I love where Holly has taken the story and characters,” Kadrey said of his response to taking on the title. “I’m going to do my best to live up to their high demonic standards.”

Of course, Kadrey is no stranger to Hell and all matter demonic — the infernal realm plays a key role in his “Sandman Slim” books, which began in 2009 with “Sandman Slim: A Novel.” The eighth book in the series, “The Perdition Score,” was published in June 2016. Fans looking to gain an early insight into Kadrey’s take on the light-bringing fallen angel should check out December’s “Lucifer” #13, which will feature his work alongside that of current writer Black.

Meanwhile, the second season of “Lucifer’s” TV incarnation continues apace, with new recurring cast member Tricia Helfer making her first full appearance in the series as Lucifer’s mother.

Starring Tom Ellis as the Devil himself, “Lucifer” airs Mondays at 9 pm ET/PT on Fox. The series also stars Lauren German, D.B. Woodside and Lesley-Ann Brandt. “Lucifer” #14 goes on sale in January 2017.
