Lobo is DC’s worst dad in a special preview for Crush and Lobo, a new eight-issue miniseries from writer Mariko Tamaki, artist Amancay Nahuelpan, colorist Tamra Bonvillain and letterer Ariana Maher that will debut this June. The series sees him team with his daughter Crush.
Originally intended as a riff on characters such as Wolverine and the Punisher, Lobo first appeared in 1983’s Omega Men #3 and was created by writer Roger Slifer and artist Keith Giffen. A native of the planet Czarnia, Lobo is a ruthless bounty hunter with many powers, including super strength and durability, as well as enhanced senses. He has tangled with a number of DC heroes over the years, especially Superman, whose strength level Lobo comes close to matching. Despite being a parody, Lobo proved popular in his own right, and became one of DC’s most popular characters in the early 1990s. Crush, his daughter, first appeared in Teen Titans Special #1 in 2018. She is only half-Czarnian, and her other half is human. Once a member of the Teen Titans, she has since left the group, and readers can see the next step in her life in Crush and Lobo.
