Comics Interview Super Special: Lobo Lives!
Interviews anthology about Lobo.
This book gathers all the interviews held with scripters, artists and
personalities who work or had projects with Lobo. The book was compiled
in 1992, in the beginning of the Lobo’s fame boom. Exactly because of
that the material is not 100% about Lobo, since the first interviews,
with Keith Giffen and Roger Slifer, were held when he was still a
secondary character of Omega Men and not even was mentioned. However, a
great acquisition for those who want to know better the creative details
about the character.
Who’s Who in the DC Universe
Referential Details about Lobo.
The book, launched in fascicles (file-like) by the DC Comics in 1991,
has details of all the characters of the publisher (a “light” precursor
of the current Encyclopedia DC). The information about Lobo occupies one
page (as all the other characters).
Below there is the list of some
Wizard magazines (the most important magazine about DC of the US) in which there
are some references about Main Man. The magazines which aren't listed are the
ones I have not the chance to check.
P.S.: Some minimal references and not exactly related to Main Man (for
instance, the “Batman/Lobo” magazine mentioned in the “Price Guide” of the
“Batman Elseworlds”, if you have understood anything) aren’t listed.
