As many of you know I am actually a pretty big fan of both Lucifer the show and the comic book, and most of you are probably already away Lucifer has also been cancelled as Fox was clearly taken over by Thanos and he kills everything we love. Well to be fair I guess if Thanos took over fox half the shows would have survived. Anyway there was a fun side to this, for a little bit the hashtag #SaveLucifer was a trending topic on Twitter. Some of you may be wondering why this is fun, well you guys and gals know what the show is. Imagine being someone who doesn’t know or at least doesn’t know the show was cancelled and happens to be very religious.
Yes, I am wondering if someone saw this and took the message the wrong way and actually thought people wanted to save the literal devil. I happen to have a weird sense of humor tho. Other sad news is it seems season 3 ends on a cliffhanger, and as of now there won’t be a season 4. Yea I am real happy about that. For more info click here. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
This week we were hit with some terrible news. Fox has cancelled the beloved cop comedy show Brooklyn 99, may it rest in peace. Twitter went nuts flaming fox and begging Netflix to be the hero we needed and save the show. Around 24 hours later however NBC picked the show up for another season. With support from the likes of Mark Hamill and Sean Astin whom Terry Crews thanked personally more on that here you can see while maybe not a no brainer for NBC, it wasn’t exactly a risky choice. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
So when the show Lucifer came out I decided it was a cool concept. The devil gets sick of hell, moves to LA, ends up helping the cops. Turned out it was based of a DC comic (and later printed by vertigo comics), but as a guy that wasn’t big on comics I didn’t want to run out and buy a bunch of them I said screw it and just watched the show. The show was pretty awesome, so I decided to read some of the comics. Now clearly there was going to be some fairly large differences. There always is. Now a few seasons in and about 10 comics in here are some of the bigger ones I have come across.
First and foremost, show while not for kids is pretty safe for teens. The comic however is pretty R rated. Not just nudity, but its pretty violent with Neo Nazi skin heads jamming a bottle up a gay mans..well use your imagination.
Another difference is Mazikeen, while in the show is a demon that takes the form of a beautiful young South African woman with insane physical skills, you rarely see her as an actual demon. In the comic however, she wears mask over one side of her face to hide her skull. Her physical skills and combat prowess is still there, and she still kind of misunderstands many social ideas.
Another big one is Amenadiel himself, who may have undergone the biggest change of them all. In the comics he is kind of borderline evil white angel that seems to think he knows exactly what god wants despite what god has said or done in the past. In the show however Amenadiel is a Black angel struggling to please god (father). The 2 characters may as well be 2 different angels all together.
Finally there is Lucifer Morningstar himself. He is also quite a bit different but not as extreme as Amenadiel. Lucifer is still pretty much overconfident and self-centered. But he lives up to the being evil portion more in the comic, in fact he actually manipulates and kills people quite often pretty early in the series.
Both the show and the comics are vastly different, so much so that watching/ reading one won’t really do much to the story of the other. The comic doesn’t even have Lucifer as a detective. Regardless of which one you check out tho, you will enjoy yourself. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
