I'm really excited and open about the new design. Why do you guys care so much? This isn't "our" Lobo, there are two. As you can see on the cover, there's the new skinny one and the older biker guy we all got attached too. I understand how some people aren't happy at the fact that the "new" Lobo is considered THE Lobo and the 90's muscle-head Lobo is an imposter. We'll see how it goes but I'm stoked.

But seriously : The concept of Lobo is to turn parodic the typical Manly Man heroes by showing excessive situation, on an anti-hero capable of "breaking the 4th wall".

What is the point into this "new Lobo" ?

I think it's cool. They're finally taking the time to make him a "real" character and stop with the satire for the most part. I'm sure the biker Lobo isn't dead from the fight in this issue and we'll see plenty of him along with the new Lobo in this run. I see it as a "best of both worlds" situation considering I think the redesign is pretty sweet.

Lobo was a real character outside of the over the top minis and one-shots, look at him in L.E.G.I.O.N., R.E.B.E.L.S. and 52 he is a man with a personal code of ethics that he adheres to fiercely-he may not be the brightest bulb always [just look how Vril Drox was able to fool him into near indentured servitude and neutered his regenerative capabilities]. Now with the New 52, he's a slaver [W.T.F.!] and an impostor-so what is he the New 52 version of Jodo Kast riding the reputation of Boba Fett?

I am familiar with L.E.G.I.O.N., never finished and started R.E.B.E.L.S., but I do remember Lobo was quite a character in that series and played more than the satirical clown he was in his first few runs after the Omega Men. Is he a slaver now? I've barely seen him in the New 52 as of yet and that's why I'm so excited for his own series so I don't have to pick up multiple Supergirl issues and JLU just for some new Lobo action.

Hopefully for just as sincere of reasons as you do apparently.

We all know that emo Lobo is in fact the impostor, and the badass one is the real one. Or at least that will be true in our hearts
