I write comic book reviews that NOBODY has ever asked for!
Welcome back to the second part of the Lobo series that it seems EVERYONE hated!
I'm serious. I've searched the internet for information on this series and 99% of what I found was negative. Most interesting to me is that, except for some reviews of the trades, ALL of the information I found was actually from before the first issue of this series even came out! There is VERY little to be found beyond the advance hate and chatter about the first issue.
But I'm gonna be honest here and repeat what I said in the first part of this series review. . .I really don't think it's as bad as people were thinking it was going to be. It seems there was a LOT of fan backlash, but I wonder how many people actually read the comics themselves instead of basing their opinion on Kenneth Rocafort's advance preview character design. . .which I discovered most of the hate centered around. . .not the comic itself, but a single picture that came out in advance of the comic.- read more
Lobo is one of those characters I really like. . .but only in small doses.
Some of my favorite mini's and one shots of my entire collection are Lobo. With a great creative team and done right, Lobo is one of the most hilarious characters out there. Unfortunately, the character never really seemed able to sustain a regular series. I guess it's hard to keep the right level of comedy and brutality going long term.
The series at hand is NOT Lobo as you might know him. It's a highly-controversial reboot of the character done during DC's New 52 days that seems to be pretty much hated by. . .well. . .everyone.- read more
