This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Lazarus, by Greg Rucka, Santiago Arcas, and Michael Lark. Set in a dystopian future in which the Earth is ruled by corporate families who via for control while exploiting the “waste”, the unwashed masses who are neither family nor those lucky enough to have curried a family’s favor.
Each family has one Lazarus: a nigh-unkillable super-soldier/bodyguard who is tasked with protecting the family and promoting their interests. The series follows Forever Carlyle, the Lazarus of the Carlyle family, as she deals with family infighting, assassination attempts, and the ever-present threat of war with the other families.
