Last spring, it seemed it was all about Lobo, that bad-ass DC Comics character created in 1984 by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen. Lobo was a Czarnian (originally Velorpian) bounty hunter who, as a nearly indestructible anti-hero, drives a space-faring motorcycle across the cosmos in search of his next target.
