Comic – Lobster Johnson vol2: The Burning Hand: A-

The best thing about Lobster Johnson is his entourage. He has a full team of guys helping him who aren’t also superheroes, just regular guys. It easily makes him more likable, while still allowing him to have that shadowy badass persona. The story was fairly standard, with a regrettable spunky-reporter-girl as protagonist. I’m conflicted over the villain too. He was certainly cool and all, but lacking in any real development. Like Boba Fett or Darth Maul. But Mignola knows his pulp and has never disappointed.
