Some thoughts about Lobo Annual #1
Someone wants Sinestro's head and such person has hired Lobo for the job. However, there's more than it seems about this whole situation and Lobo will soon learn that he might have been manipulated.
Well, this Annual continues the same problems from every frikking issue from this series.
Cullen Bunn delivers a story without any semblance of style nor uniqueness. Lobo continues to be one of the most unlikable protagonists that you can find in any comic, not really because he committs terrible acts (which he does) but because of a severe lack of personality, charm and wit. The character is not really enjoyable to read about.
Worst of all, the narration boxes are so goddamn abundant that is getting asphyxiating. They're so prominent that they get pretty repetitive and they offer so little in terms of distinctiveness that you can simply skip them and you won't miss anything about the story. Not only that but they also make Lobo take himself way too seriously and for that reason, he's not fun to watch.
The surprise at the end, is not that much of a surprise all things considered but it was still kinda interesting.
Robson Rocha is in charge of the art and his work is by far the best aspect of thi story thanks to good looking characters, rich environments and solid storytelling.
Other than that, you can safely skip this. Nothing valuable whatsoever.
