Lobo's On A Highway To Hell

Is it finally time for another Lobo mini-series?


Where has Lobo been lately?  The last time I recall seeing him was during 52.  On the other hand, I do think it's good we haven't seen too much of him.  While I've always enjoyed Lobo's antics, it can get old if seen too much.  I get that he's such a badass but sometimes he just comes across as a novelty.  That shouldn't be what the character is about.

DC announced yesterday that come November, we will be treated with a two-issue prestige format series.  It will be written by Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian and drawn by Sam Kieth.  We are being promised Lobo at his best (or worst?).  Let's hope he does return to the bad, evil character he should be.  Lobo should not be watered or toned down.

What's your take on Lobo?  Is too cliche?  Do you enjoy his character?  Do you agree that he can take on pretty much anyone?  Are you going to pick up this series?

I've only seen Lobo on the Superman animated series and liked him then

O yeah, the art looks intense!!!

I love Lobo but I can definitely see that having too much Lobo wouldn't be hard to do. His old monthly got a little repetitive.
Considering how damn unstoppable he is in his unwatered-down form (don't forget he beat Superman within an inch of his life) he would be annoying if he was mixed in with the rest of the DCU on a regular basis. So I think these occasional comics are probably the best for The Main Man, that way he can spend the rest of his time with his fishies.

Im so psyched now.  I haven't read a book that Kieth has drawn in loooong time.  Mostly because I usually only read the top 2 companies.  His art is amazing cuz he's such a wierdo.  He's like the Tim Burton of comic book artists visualy.  (does visually have 1 or 2 L's in it) ?

Guess I'm in the minority by stating I'm not keen on Lobo.  Nor am I that overtly fond of Sam Kieth BUT his style is unique and it is interesting to see his work on this character.

Sam Kieth is the creator/artist for the Maxx.

Does Sam Kieth spell his last name  Kieth or Keith?  I thought it was the former unless I'm mistaken?

I like Lobo in small doses. Just don't give him another monthly!

Is this a trick question Clyde? And Deadpool couldn't fight Lobo's used tissue.

That's awesome!! Scott Ian rocks!! I'm curious to see if he's a good writer or not.

Sucks that we have to wait until November though. :-/

Hmmm Scott Ian huh? I like to see what his writing abilities will be like.....At first I wasn't a fan of Lobo, but then he grew on me and now I'm a fan of Lobo.

I thought this was a sweet fan film that Andrew Brynarksi did to try to get a an actual Lobo movie going. I like how he used the Paramilitary Christmas Special storyline. Btw there is some vulgarity in this fan film

Wow, Scott Ian!?!? Anthrax is one of my favorite bands. I knew they were into comics becuase of their song "I Am The Law", a song about Judge Dredd, but I didn't know they were this much into comics.

Lobo is pretty cool. I liked him in the Brave and the Bold and overall he is a funny character, kind of like deadpool with a bigger ego.

I grew up on Lobo. For a time he was my favorite comic book character ever. Although I don't think he'll ever reach the popularity he used to have - it's good to see him back in the comics.

Lobo was the first comic I have ever read and I love every last comic that has him in it(except when he is watered down), I cant wait for this to come out. Ive benn waiting for The Real Lobo to pop up since Reign In Hell.
