Been and Foley of Happy Harbor Comics have a brief discussion about the May LGN Picks:
LAZARUS, by Greg Rucka and Michael Lark
Been: What is Lazarus about in broad strokes?
Foley: In the future, America is ruled by a small collection of incredibly wealthy families sparring with each other to expand their territory. Each clan has their own superhuman enforcer, called a Lazarus; the Carlyle family's Lazarus is named Forever. When fixing her all-too-human siblings' problems start putting her in awkward moral corners, she begins questioning her role in maintaining the status quo. Think Game of Thrones meets that Elysium movie with Matt Damon from a few years back.
Been: So from what I understand the non-wealthy live in sort of wastelands and wait to be “lifted up” or raised to a non-disposable sort of status? Is that correct?
Foley: Technically, there's two classes of non-wealthy, Serfs and Waste. Serfs have some function for the families, Waste are just trying to survive--I don't get the impression there's much hope for social advancement among the Waste.
Been: And the Lazarus would protect the family’s interests from other wealthy elites and any over-ambitious non-wealthy?
Foley: Exactly. Most of those threats come from the other wealthy families--Lazari are very hard to kill and highly trained, so anyone that doesn't have one working for them isn't a great concern.
ANIMOSITY, by Marguerite Bennett and Rafael de Latorre
Been: I know Animosity is more or less about animals. Sentient ones, I believe.
Foley: Jesse's beloved dog, Sandor, just developed speech and self-awareness, along with every other animal in the world. Unlike many of his animal brethren, Sandor knows his purpose almost immediatel. He adopts the previously sheltered Jesse as his own, doing what he must to protect the girl from the apocalyptic results of The Wake.
Been: So, then, it involves all animals developing speech and self-awareness but most of them are decidedly unhappy about humanity?
Foley: Off the top of my head, I can't recall if it extends to, say, insects and I don't know if "most" are unhappy about humanity or just a big enough of a chunk to trigger what amounts to the apocalypse. You've got to think there's a few really unimpressed cows out there looking for payback.
