Can we talk about new52 Lobo? I have been reading his solo serie and first I dropped it but then I hear Sinestro having some appearances. So far it's not bad. It's not good ol' Lobo but he fulfills with the badass merc who is a complete bastich. What do you think? You like him, you hate him?
>>
I don't care about the new design but I don't think he's as fun as the old Lobo
>>
Why is this character even named Lobo?

Complete and utter shit, thank god DC came to their senses and canceled his godawful series, now let's hope the character itself gets canceled as well.

They should just get rid of his character entirely. His role as a 90's Wolverine parody is no longer relevant. He's just kept around so DC can milk nostalgia fanbabbies for their meager cash.

I like him better.
Old Lobo should never have coexisted with mainstream DC characters and, to be honest, was never funny.
I'd rather see DC getting rid of them both, though.

NuLobo is fun the same way direct to DVD action movies are fun.

Fuck I loved Section 8 but I really hated that Bueno Excelente was just a fucker who could fuck everyman he wanted just because good ol' Ennis has a fixation with rapes
>>
>>77784464
NuLobo is a totally different character, he is just so generic. Pre reset Lobo was a shit but his attitude was that makes him good. This Lobo for the other hand lacks that personality.

So unless you're drunk or stoned and watching it with a couple friends you wanna blow your brains out 3 minutes in?

Consider what Lobo is.
A parody of his times.
>>
I really like the arstist they've had on Lobo for the most recent issues. he makes the comic pretty readable

There are people right now, RIGHT! NOW! that read and enjoy NuBo for what he is presented as. A badass conflicted pretty boy in space.

They have read, if not at all, a minimal amount of old Lobo and judge his previous character as childish and intended strictly for immature edge babies, without recognizing his satirical nature.

They are the "Lobo fansboys/fangirls/fantrans" that DC will cater to, because the industry is flooding with up and coming new talent that pushes their social agendas and barely understands previous material on the character.

>my feelings when Nubo is here to stay and Lobo is potentially dead unless there's another reboot
>>
>>77786113
Nah, this new Lobo is dead in the water, DC will have completely give up on him a year from now, mark my words.
>>
>>77786113
sick fuck
>>
>>77786134
I think Nubo can work if he finds his own appeal.
>>
>>77786134
Sales wise, Nubo is a sinking boat and DC just doesn't wanna bother with him at all.

But if they ever revisit Lobo in anyway within the current universe, the writer will feature Nubo instead of Lobo.
>>
>>77786381
What about bringing back pre reset Lobo? We already have new earth supes and we will have pre zero hour Parallax,
>>
>>77786113
Honey, no. Look at the sales. More people buy Lobo than Midnighter and Omega Men, but that's about it. And I'll even give you a hint about which of the three isn't critically acclaimed.
>>
>>77785865
have you read Lobo before nu52? not judging or anything, just legit curiosity
>>
This whole thing with Lobo just reminds me of Venom and Agent Venom fans. Is it a coincidence Cullen Bunn wrote both?
>>
>>77786737
One of those has fans, the other doesn't. Key difference.

How original.

What happened to the child he had with bueno?

A female creative team

he's actually the real lobo
old lobo (aka fake lobo) stole his name
>>
What happened to that old Lobo head he was carrying when I first saw some solicits?
>>
>>77786113
im sorry, but no.... i read one old lobo comic and the entire thing was about him literally sexually assaulting women in a beauty pageant. and he killed a woman simply because he thought she was ugly. that shit isnt satire... its not even an attempt at humor.... it's just 90s edge solely written to cause controversy. and it's not even good at that, it's just boring. i'm just saying...

Do people get that the original Lobo was a parody of all the ridiculous costumed heroes of the 90's?
And that the new Lobo is a parody of all the dark, edgy and limp wrist heroes of today?

Maybe in concept but it's played straight rather than as a parody

excuse me? it literally took me 2 seconds to find in google. you fanboys don't even know what you're trying to defend anymore lol
>>
>>77789580
A parody doesn't need to be overtly obvious in order to be a parody though. Perhaps because they are playing it so straight it gives the overall attempt a greater impact?

I've only read a couple of new Lobo issues, and I found it entertaining and clearly a parody of modern edgy crap.

But hey, I might just be picking up on something that isn't there.
>>
>>77789556
>>77789580

The new Lobo isn't a parody in concept or in execution. He was created to be a serious and conflicted character who's underneath actually a nice person and in execution he's a series and conflicted character who lost those he loved thus making him hate himself and the universe.

So... you know, your average badass from action movies.

You're seeing him as a parody only because you wanted. I can give links and even quote the interviews by his creators and current writer where they state just how series the character and their work is, to the point of feeling offended to be asked such a thing.
>>
>>
>>77789765
Well, screw those bastards, I still gonna view him as a parody, as that's the only way I'm gonna enjoy those comics.

You know what? Let's end this right now.

http://www.newsarama.com/18200-new-female-writer-promises-dark-creepy-take-on-lobo-for-dc-s-villains-month.html

>Nrama: As I'm sure you're aware, Lobo originally represented all that was "cliché" about comic book "bad-assery." Is he still that character at all? How would describe the character now, as you're writing him?

>Bennett: The surest way to miss the mark of what is “cool” or “badass” is to focus on those words and concepts. If you miss a target in archery, it’s because you were thinking too much about the target, and not enough about what you were doing to hit the target.

>I have no intentions to make Lobo “cool” or “badass." I will write him proud, vicious, indifferent, driven, and self-satisfying. If readers think him “cool” because of this, then I had no part in it. It is simply the natural appeal of Lobo as a character, not whatever tendentious trappings I tried to attach to him.

>(But this is simply my own opinion. For my part, I hope you like him.)

Next i'll post what the current writer had to say about it.

http://www.newsarama.com/22261-cullen-bunn-reaches-out-to-old-school-lobo-fans-i-get-it.html

>Nrama: Lobo's beginnings came from his creators' desire to parody violent characters, almost as an indictment of the comics industry's direction. Obviously, he ended up evolving into much more than that. But does this new Lobo have any connection at all to that history?

>Bunn: I loved Lobo in the '90s, but I think that character is hard to connect with, especially for new readers.

>Nrama: You're keeping the idea of Lobo being violent, but is there still any dark humor there? Does Lobo's story have a bit of humor to it?

>Bunn: This is not intended to be a “knee slapper,” but it definitely has its light-hearted moments. There’s a quirkiness to the universe that Lobo lives in that we’ll try to show off. But, like I said, I don’t intend for this to be a comedy title.
>>
New 52 Lobo is just kind of there. It isn't offensively bad, at least not for me because I haven't read much of the original Lobo to have much of an attachment to to the characterization that most people had. Everything about it was just "meh." The plot revolving around Lobo assassinating would-be mercs trying to destroy the Earth is a really simple concept, but could make for some fun stories. Unfortunately, the stories weren't fun, the side characters were awful and Lobo himself was boring. The art didn't do anything for me either. It wasn't something I was hoping would get canceled, but I'm not disappointed in the least to see it go.
>>
>>77790001
Man, this is just how Cullen Bunn's writing seems to be in general. He takes something that in concept should be just so fucking cool and then just makes it the most dull thing you'll ever read.
