Lobo: Highway To Hell Reviewed

Like him or not, Lobo's back to take on Satan.

Lobo's back.  Does anyone still care?  When I first discovered Lobo I became a huge fan.  Lobo's Paramilitary Christmas Special cracked me up.  Then it felt like he started getting a little watered down.  Let's find out how this two issue series will be.

Lobo is indeed back.  It's great getting back to what Lobo is all about, fragging anyone that gets in his way.  Scott Ian and Sam Kieth do a great job here.  Scott does a great job of capturing the essence of who Lobo really should be.  Sam's art takes us into the bizarre world that Lobo lives in.  We're on an incredible journey as Lobo makes his way to take on Satan.  
While it may not be the best comic ever produced, that's what you'd expect.  We're talking about a Lobo comic.  He's going after Satan for killing some dolphins.  Do we really need any more reason to read this?  What it comes down to is if you're a Lobo fan, you need to pick this book up.  The writing is dead on with the right amount of violence and humor.  The art is just amazing to look at and just fits in nicely.  I was worried that this wouldn't live up to my expectations but I feel like Lobo finally is back to where he should be.
