The The Two-Edged Sword wiki last edited by Billy Batson on 06/27/13 04:51AM View full history

"Triptych: The Two-Edged Sword" - the second of three linked but freestanding stories. Hybrid angel Elaine Belloc runs away from home and embarks on a quest to find her dead friend Mona. Taking in Hell and the Dreaming along the way, Elaine meets friends and foes she never dreamed existed - and learns that there's a whole lot more to life and death than meets the eye. Featuring cameos from THE SANDMAN favorites Brute and Glob.

Elaine Belloc discovers a new power of hers while sitting on a bench when she accidentally astral projects herself, leaving her body lifeless. Although she is at first surprised, she decides to roll with it and winds up watching as Mazikeen is judged by Briadach, watches as Lucifer fashions his cosmos, is attacked by some demon creatures and eventually finds her way to Hell. Once there she is soon met with even more hostility when Lady Lys captures the angelic girl and almost kills her before Duma rescues her and returns her to her body, making a silent friendship between the two.

First Look at Hell 0

Once again this issue does not focus on Lucifer, yet still it was very good, as it focused on Elaine Belloc and its great to see the young daughter of Michael Demiurgos as she learns more about herself and the world around her, or at least the supernatural parts. First we get a flashback from last issue as Elaine learns of her astral projection and arrives at the meeting of the Lilim just as Mazikeen is put on trial, however she is noticed so she runs. Then we see the world Lucifer is fashioning...
