Lobo Unbound #6
(April, 30 of 2004)
April last issue finally was released “Lobo Unbound” mini-series . The day
before of the Brazilian issue release, by Panini, it’s worthy to check the final
considerations about the story.
The conclusion: What does happen when a group of little Ets search for
Lobo’s prepuce to make fun of it! How does Lobo solve this situation in the
planet where he’s forcibly a lively leader! How does the hell Keith Giffen
conclude this story that was about to have no sense at all :)
Script: Keith Giffen
Art: Alex Horley
/ negative points:
The jokes referring to it come in a great quantity in this mini-series
last edition. Many of these jokes are related to the Iraq war and other
conflicts which the USA are involved in. The president George W. Bush even
appears in the end (look at the left side), having been tricked (which makes the
comic book very worthy). The only problem is that most of these jokes referring
to it, are unknown for those who don’t regularly watch the international news
and don’t know about the American external politics mess.
Apart other things, some of the final jokes don’t make much sense for those who
aren't from the USA, because they mention two North-American humorists who
aren’t so well-known by the great international public: Dennis Miller, a
pro-Bush humorist (yeah, that exists there, believe it), and Al Franken, a
humorist who hardly criticizes the American president (yeah, there still are
some people who's got brain in the USA).
In the general balance, the mini-series has a positive evaluation. Although it
gets a little dated when it portrays so directly the recent conflicts in the
Iraq, it’s a good fun. It isn’t amongst the best stories already published of
the last Czarnian, but it certainly is a good acquisition to any collection. If
not for the script (that, although there are so many references, or perhaps
because of them, it ends up being a little disconnected), at least by Alex
Horley’s great art, who has given us the gift of fantastic scenes of
inconsequent and gratuitous violence.
Isn’t exactly this what the Main Man’s fan likes the most?
