I would like to read Lucifer's story from the very beginning which I know started in a Sandman comic book issue. Which are the Sandman comics that involve Lucifer and after that do I read the books?? A little guidance would be helpful

  • There are many mentions of Lucifer in Sandman. However, his origin story is only told briefly. – Gallifreyan Dec 8 '16 at 8:19
  • I just noticed there are additional Lucifer comics. I'll read them and update my answer. – Gallifreyan Dec 8 '16 at 14:14
  • I simply want to have the whole story from its beginning before the solo Lucifer series and I am kinda confused, can you send me links for those volumes you mentioned as to where I can buy them ? and thanks for all he info – drQuinz3l Dec 9 '16 at 3:13
  • Updated my answer with the list of works. Ideally, you should read them in this order, but I doubt you'll get spoilers or confusions if you read them in other order. As to where you can buy them, I'd recommend the usual: comic shops, Amazon, DC's own website, etc. Since those are older comics, you'll probably find it easier to purchase them online in digital form. – Gallifreyan Dec 9 '16 at 5:32
  • There is a list of collected editions here, but it doesn't include Lucifer's appearances in Sandman. – Gallifreyan Dec 9 '16 at 5:35

TL;DR: Read Sandman volume 1, 3, 9; Sandman Presents: Lucifer #1-#3, Lucifer: Nirvana (one-shot) and the Lucifer series by Mike Carey (75 issues) - preferably in this order.

The Sandman volumes are important because they show how Lucifer abandoned Hell and moved to LA to run a nightclub called Lux (which is shown in latest Lucifer television series). The rest of Lucifer's solo career takes place after these events.
