Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Lobo, the scruffy super-powered metalhead space-biker and bounty hunter, was one of the most popular characters in ‘90s comics, due to his occasionally amusing adventures that brimmed with over-the-top juvenile antics and cartoonish ultra-violence. Pretty much a one-note creation unless handled by talented creators, Lobo's narrative limitations are quite evident in this effort. Lobo journeys to Hell seeking vengeance for an offense allegedly committed by Satan, and the usual mayhem ensues. The concept has some potential, but in writing the script, Ian, the talented rhythm guitarist for the metal band Anthrax, proves himself a talented rhythm guitarist. The narrative is crammed with forced and unfunny attempts at humor that quickly grow tiresome, and Keith's (The MAXX) art looks rushed and loose even by his impressionist standards. The whole endeavor has the feel of the creative team having lost interest, a condition that will doubtless be shared by most readers. (Oct.)
