Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Online backlash to DC Comics’ younger and slicker “new look” for Lobo may have been a little premature, as writer Marguerite Bennett assures fans the lewd and violent interstellar bounty hunter “is much bigger, meaner and nastier” than the concept art would lead them to believe.
In fact, she contends the character that appears in September’s Justice League #23.3: Lobo one-shot doesn’t look like the Kenneth Rocafort design unveiled Friday on the DC blog, or the Aaron Kuder cover.
“I was not in charge of the Lobo redesign. Ben Oliver was not in charge of the Lobo redesign,” Bennett wrote in a blog post that’s since been deleted. “I wrote my script, and after it was completed, I was shown what the new character would look like. For the record, the images you’ve seen — Ken Rocafort’s design and Aaron Kuder’s cover — are not what Lobo actually looks like in the book. I respectfully disagree with the decision to release that image.”
