December 1st, 2015 marks the SuccuWiki's Eighth Anniversary!
Lucifera is a Demoness, but can also be described as a Succubus, anti-heroine of an Italian comic book series by the same name opular in the seventies. She was dedicated to fighting against the forces of Good and to bring souls to Hell to serve out the punishments that awaited them.
Lucifera can be described as a Demoness or Succubus who is dedicated to fighting the forces of Good. She is a tell, statuesque female demoness with a highly sexual appearance. Though never appearing with either horns or tail, she had many of the aspects of a Succubus in her nature, not the least of which being enjoying all forms of sexual pleasures and, to an extent, erotic horror. While capable of swordplay, as seen on many occasions, she was more likely to use her sexuality to influence others around her in doing her bidding or to move away from their normal actions.
A frequent visitor to Hell, she enjoys sending others there to be tormented. Her adventures are explicit, if humorous, eroticism and in one scene she is shown fellating the devil himself. Other storylines involve Sado-Masochism, executions, impalement and even molestation by a giant spider. On the surface world she inhabits a mythical and very violent Europe from the Middle Ages, populated by wenches, knights and three-headed dragon dogs.
The Lucifera comic book was published by Ediperiodici and ran for 170 issues from 1971 to 1980. A French edition was also published by Elvifrance and ran for 99 issues from 1972 to 1980. Artists who have worked on the Lucifera series include Edoardo Morricone (a.k.a. Morrik, who later worked on other Italian comics such as Biancaneve, Satanik and Djustine), Leone Frollo and Tito Marchioro.
Lucifera is one of many such characters from the Italian fumetti tradition. Other figures from the same era, and with similarly violent or erotic preoccupations, include Zora la Vampira, Maghella, Biancaneve, Vartan, Jacula and Sukia.
