DC Reveals New Look for LOBO's 'First' New 52 Appearance in 'What's New'

We've already seen Lobo, the Main Man, in the pages of the New 52, right?

Wrong, says DC Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras. The character we saw before was an imposter, and the real Lobo, complete with a new slim redesign, is pissed.

"A ruthless killer, Lobo is on a quest to kill the man who has taken his name," Harras says in the latest "What's New in the New 52" column on the DC Comics blog.

While Rocafort initially went for a more traditional, brawny look, DC Comics settled on the new slender style to reflect his character as a "lean mean killing machine."

As for his story in the Villains Month special, Justice League #23.2: Lobo by Marguerite Bennet, Ben Oliver, Cliff Richards, and Daniel Brown, it will focus on the aforementioned hunt, and why this new model can be much scarier than the old, campy version.

"This Lobo is equal parts strong, vicious, and driven," said Harras. "There’s a darker and more logical idea about what a force of nature like him is capable of. After all, this is someone who can infiltrate high society, fly a space ship, and adhere to a very specific moral code that’s not your typical anti-hero one. Oh, and, this one-shot takes place very far away from Earth. And when I say very far away, I mean it takes place literally on the other side of the galaxy."


I used to say that the New 52 made it look like all DC fans cared about were names and costumes, that they could change a character's history and the same dummies would keep buying the book because it featured a similar-looking character.

Now it's become obvious that DC just thinks we love a series of names that can be attached to any character and still receive the same amount of dedication.

The fact that "THAT LOBO DC SHOWED YOU FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS... HE'S NOT THE REAL LOBO!!" just makes every creation appear that much more disposable.

Isn't an effete, stylish assassin just the opposite of what Lobo is?

This is why I don't want to get into the series that actually look good; with the wave of a hand, DC might just say, "Oh, Flash? Actually an albino pedophile from the center of the Earth. Enjoy!"

I mean, it's not even that it's goth Lobo. Both visually and character-wise, this character is the opposite of everything that IS Lobo.

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?

The writer has said that the interior art (not by Roccafort) features a much uglier Lobo.

That's Lobo? the main man? really?
Now imagine Marvel giving that treatment to, say, Wolverine.
Ah DC... you save me so much money these days.

I keep thinking they can't surprise me with the redesigns. Then they do this to the main man. Kudos DC.
