Lazarus Churchyard: The Final Cut

Lazarus Churchyard: The Final Cut

Collected volume of the Lazarus Churchyard series.

He's an ex-terrorist from the scrag-end of London with a connoisseur's understanding of every foul narcotic known to humanity. He's a four hundred year old derelict and hated by at least half the inhabitants of a poisoned and depopulated Earth. He's actually a bit of brain locked inside a body sculpted from intelligent plastic that renders him immortal. And all he wants to do is die. Meet Lazarus Churchyard, suicide-crazed unkillable junkie trapped in a future so disgusting that it makes him the good guy by default. Lazarus Churchyard was what happened when the British got their hands on cyberpunk. Tundra commissioned two sequel books to the original 40-page story -- which included stories not illustrated by ur-LAZ artist D'Israeli -- which were collected into a trade paperback in 1992. Lazarus Churchyard: The Final Cut sets things right and supplants the long-out-of-print earlier edition by bringing together the core stories by Warren Ellis and D'Israeli, and finishing the collection with a brand-new story created especially for this book.

    Lazarus Churchyard: The Final Cut Reviews

  • Rick

    The prolific and popular Warren Ellis, creator of Transmetropolitan, Planetary, Red, and numerous other titles, began his first ongoing series, Lazarus Churchyard, in 1991 for the short-lived Blast! m...

  • Luke Kondor

    Proof that Warren Ellis came out of the womb slinging pathos-riddled sardonic sci-fi. Paired up with D'Israeli's idiosyncratic flair and you've got something that feels oddly fresh, even thirty years ...

  • BellaGBear

    very very weird, but also kinda cool. This is not a comic easy to get in to though. I mainly got through it because I really loved Transmetropolitan, Vol. 1: Back on the Street and the rest of the ser...

  • Andrew

    This is an early Warren Ellis work. Very raw & chaotic. Pretty funny, at times, though very dark.The art, by D'Israeli, is quite good.Worth reading, if you're an Ellis fan and you want a quick fix of ...

    Primitive compared to what Ellis and D’Israeli usually produce. It’s still entertaining, decadent, with moments of beauty and brilliance....

  • Brenton

    Lazarus Churchyard was Warren Ellis' answer to cyberpunk, according to his foreword. Not wishing to relegate himself to what he considered, at that point, a dead genre whose "dulling bones [were] bein...

  • Owen Watts

    I was 13 when Lazarus Churchyard was reprinted in the Judge Dredd Megazine. I was far too young for it - it made no sense to me and was as brutal as it was bewildering. It spoke of a cavernously confu...

  • D.M.

    I have a pretty low tolerance for science fiction, and there's no mistaking that's what Lazarus Churchyard is. There's normally just so much cyber-this and that-plasm I can take before I toss a book a...

  • Michael

    I'm surprised it took me so long to find a copy of this. Laz is a great Ellis character, and it's very obvious that this work would be the basis for all of his later work. Here, Ellis was unleashed. I...

  • Matt Piechocinski

    I liked this early work by Ellis, but sometimes, his ideas are really out there, and I kept finding myself having to go back and reread what the hell was actually going on. I found it kind of distract...
