In October 2013, Image Comics released the first Lazarus about 16 wealthy families controlling and manipulating the rest of the society.
The show follows the story of Forever Carlyl, a Lazarus. Each family out of the 16 has one ‘genetically engineered and unkillable being’ that will do anything and everything to protect their family and their interests.
Forever Carlyl’s character is manipulative, deceptive and uses forceful methods to guard her family. The series explores morality and love alongside the several class systems.
Greg Rucka will be writing the script for the pilot of Lazarus as well as taking on the role of executive producer with Michael Lark and Matt Tolmach. David Manpearl will accompany the team and work on the project.
