Nope, I haven't read those. I'm kinda new to the whole Anglo-American comics thing; I've been following the Franco-Belgian stuff more, and only got into it via Sandman about two years ago.

Not read Lucifer, or even heard of the writers, is it any good?
I liked it a lot. The series is written by Mike Carey, and based on Lucifer as imagined by Neil Gaiman in The Sandman. I've only read it up to Volume 9 (Crux), though. IMO it's not quite up to the flights of fantasy of Sandman at its best (but then few things are); however, it's a good deal more consistent in style, narrative, and quality. I'd say that if you liked The Sandman, you're probably going to like Lucifer too. I certainly liked it more than Swamp Thing.
