But could the new artist, Dan Mora, be about to become equally as acclaimed? We showed off some of his work a few months ago. Now you can buy it.

I try to focus on the things we can all understand, things we've all experienced regardless of whether we're men or women. When I write Lucifer, I don't try to write a character that I want to date, I try to write a character I want to be.
