I am definitely not a fan of Lobo, so aside from being drawn by Rob Liefeld I don't see what's wrong there. Was he acting out of character?

No, it absolutely doesn't look like Lobo. The artist took a couple of elements from his original look and jettisoned the rest.

I'm willing to give it a shot, if only because the writer sounds enthusiastic about the product, but I can see that fans of the original character may be PISSED.

I used to be a fan way back when, so I'm not pissed. But he looks like a Final Fantasy character. Not Lobo at all. Maybe Kid Lobo or Lobo Lad.

No, Kid Lobo from Young Justice looked tougher than either of those designs.

So the real Lobo is apparently now the bastard child of a one night stand between the Joker and Domino from X-Force? WTF?

Actually, bringing up X-Force makes me realize that nuLobo sorta looks like what I would imagine that Kid Apocalypse will look like in his late teens/early 20's.

Really?

I see a lot more similarities between the two than differences. But maybe it's just me.

I like the second one, the "official" one more, even though it doesn't "feel" like Lobo.

At least it's a step up from:

I don't miss the old schtick, so why not? Hook's still there and as long as he's good at using it, I'll check it out.

More evidence that the DCnU is Earth-Lame TV/Movie Pitch. They don't care about getting the character right; they're only interested in what some "pretty-boy" actor is going to look like portraying the character. As mentioned, this is "slim Angela Bassett as Amanda Waller" redux. :roll:
