Lucifer is one of Vertigo’s most mesmerizing and unique series. Spinning out from the pages of The Sandman, the series features Holly Black’s evocative writing and Lee Garbett’s gorgeous artwork. However, in Lucifer #13, out this Wednesday, Black teams up with guest artist Marco Rudy to tell a sinister holiday story to remember.  Check out the Comics Beat’s exclusive preview of the issue after the jump!

It’s a LUCIFER holiday special! Forget coal—this nice ’n‘ naughty issue is your reward for a year of indulgent misdeeds with the devil. Writers Holly Black and Richard Kadrey team up to deliver a darkly festive and irreverent ode to the joy of seasonal sin and twisted Secret Santas. We’re keeping this one under wraps, but rest assured it’s Krampus-approved.
