Lobo: Infanticide

0

Happy Father’s Day.

Not everyone is appreciative of raising a child. Lobo for example. DC’s Main Man has fathered an army of illegitimate children over the years. Due to his reputation the bastard babies have grown to become despised by the other denizens of the universe.

One is fighting back. Daughter Su has inherited her sire’s stones and enlisted a legion of step-brothers and sisters – over 200 – to avenge their shameful situation.

The four-part play is conducted as follows:  a plan is formed, executed and foiled as Lobo shows he’s DC’s best-at-what-he-does.

And, like his mimeographed Marvel mate, what he does isn’t nice.

Father’s Day is purported to have begun as a memorial service for a group of West Virginia miners who died in 1907. Father’s Day is a complement to Mother’s Day, celebrated the third Sunday in June.

Lobo’s Big Babe Spring Break Special

0

No matter the weather, today is the first day of spring. To usher out the end of another winter the Last Czarnian, the Main Man, the bastich himself:  Lobo plays bodyguard to eight of the galaxy’s most beautiful college students. All to crown the next Miss Voluptua.

Only no one is who they seem.

Lobo’s Big Babe Spring Break Special

Lobo is called in to do what he does best. Or, one of the things he does best. Lobo is to ensure no harm comes to the beauty pageant contestants. In the new and enlightened era of political correctness the Miss Voluptua ’95 contest is at risk from renegade factions protesting the objectification of women.

Alan Grant continues scripting chores sans mentor Keith Giffen. Jim Balent handles penciling duties.

Lobo first appeared in Omega Men issue three. He would continue to make cameos throughout the DC Universe in such titles as Justice League International, L.E.G.I.O.N. and its sequel R.E.B.E.L.S. before earning his self-titled, solo four-issue mini-series in 1990.

The Main Man would continue to star in one-shots and minis throughout his mercenary career including Lobo’s Paramilitary Christmas Special, Lobo’s Back, Lobo Blazing Chain of Love, Lobo Infanticide, Lobo Portrait of a Victim and Lobo Unamerican Gladiators. His own title came in 1993 and ran till 1999.

Lobo’s Paramilitary Christmas Special

It’s doubtful Lobo’s Paramilitary Christmas Special is gonna replace ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a fun read.

A very fun read.

Keith Giffen provided the inspiration to a reimaged Justice League after Crisis on Infinite Earths with an irreverent blend of behind-the-scenes at Saturday Night and Three Stooges slapstick that captured my attention and heart. It was only fitting he take the secular side of the most holy of holidays and rape the time honored tradition of Santa Claus by posting a price on his head.

No spoilers here, but the only red and green in this issue are the bloody trail to the North Pole and money readers happily plunked down for this issue.

Buy it, Fanboy!
