Didn't really like it. The story was ok, but I picked up Lucifer expecting a story about Lucifer, and what I got was a couple stories in which Lucifer is a side character that appears every once in a while makes a few comments and then goes away. He's very one dimensional and doesn't do much when he is finally brought back into the story. 

The concept of Lucifer is great, and that's why he got his own spin off from Sandman, but  the execution of that concept was just meh.
