Having read the first collection (this, Book One) and watched every episode of the TV series, I can say that the respective Lucifers are definitely both very similar and very different - I'm aware that is something of a contradiction, just roll with it. The TV series is more of a buddy-cop, crime solving serial with a supernatural twist, while the graphic novel touches on concepts far more...metaphorical, theological, and metaphysical than could really be addressed on TV. Both are very good, for what they are, but - if one were to take Tom Ellis out of the equation - the hands down victor would be the graphic novel, by a wide margin.
Enjoy both for what they are!
If you, like me thought you would be reading the comic format origins of the tv version you will be disappointed.
However if you approach it with fresh eyes its a very good story. The art is clean and just lovely to see, no problem with actually being able to read the text. A lot of the elements in the tv show are here as well, just in a slightly different aspect.for the most part all the characters are darker than they are shown on tv, but it fits in with the story if the Ruler of hell, the fallen angel. LUCIFER.
Ill be picking up the rest of the series to read.
As for the story itself, I started reading the book because I watched the TV show based on it first. The characters personality is definitely different, and interesting. Not so say it's bad, but I'm just wondering how all the stories of these people involved with Lucifer will come to fruition. Guess I'll have to finish it, huh?

I've just started watching season 3 of Lucifer, thanks to Prime, and this bares hardly ANY resemblance to the show. Everyone seems to be white; his brother's like an old biker dude, Maze doesn't talk and it's just gross. And the *really* weird thing is that instead of finding clever ways to hide full frontal nudity if they were iffy about being graphic, is that they've drawn Lucifer as a Barbie doll: He's just flat triangle down there. Given how female characters are portrayed in comics, generally speaking, that's unbelievably hypocritical. Like, WUT?!
While I'm here, I got to read (or start - i ditched it when i read a character got raped while in a coma of sorts and it was hushed up) Sandman on Kindle Unlimited, which is the book from whence this Lucifer sprang and NOPE. That wasn't to my taste either.
Point being, these things are subjective ofc, and ppl can like what they like, but don't always believe that something is good just because everyone else is raving about it.
Season one of the show, however, is great fun. Can never take cops or therapists seriously ever again but definitely recommend it! 2 & 3 are ok.
Zuerst sollte ich vielleicht erwähnen, daß die TV Serie mich zum Comicbuch brachte.
Doch stellt der Comic all das in den Schatten.
Ich möchte nicht viel spoilern, daher halte ich mich kurz.
Lucifer ist einer von diesen Serien, die man vielleicht anfangs belächelt. Ihnen anfangs vielleicht kaum Aufmerksamkeit schenkt und dann trifft es einen.
Eine durchdachte Geschichte, verpackt in einem tollen Zeichenstil (die Miniserie am Anfang ist bildschön illustriert!) und von großartigen Charakteren bevölkert.
Wer keine Lust mehr auf Superhelden hat und keine Berührungsangst mit Himmel und Hölle hat, MUSS diese Serie lesen!
