The illustrations were a bit lacking, but decent just the same. Keith Ian Giffen is an American comic book illustrator and writer. Lobo fo – 10 of 28 basitch. Based on this, I’ll be more interested in seeing Lobo in a group and probably pass on his solo efforts.
And some point Giffen retconned Lobo into a psychopath who committed genocide against his own race, just so he could be unique, and made him an exaggerated parody of the really dark and nasty but ultimately boring fanboy favorite characters like the Punisher and Wolverine.
Lobo is a hyper violent, self-centered dickhead. I’m glad I read the originals instead of just diving in head-first into the newer Lobo Books, because I Like to get a feel of how a character is brought into a comic book universe instead of starting in the middle and this book does just that.

Actually, the biggest problem is the comic length just 4 issuesand it’s conclusion is just as rush and out of nowhere, that it sorts of bothers, but not enough to ruin the rest of the comic.
Is what you’d expect from it; Lobo having a job to accomplish and lots of trouble around him. I First found out about Lobo by playing through the Injustice: Much to Giffen’s surprise, Lobo took off and became as popular as the characters he was making fun of, which I suspect may have something to do with fanboys lack of appreciation of irony and tendency to read mostly into the literal content of a story.
