A Lobo story like nothing you've seen before! You can imagine that when you live life the way the Main Man lives life loud, loose, and ludicrously violent you might pick up an enemy or two along the way. An enemy like, say, oh I don't know, Satan himself. And Satan, my friends, does not play around. Hell's iron-fisted ruler has a serious mad-on for the last Czarnian, and he's gonna hit Lobo right in his blackened, scabrous heart. So Lobo's just gonna have to hit him harder. Repeatedly. In the FACE. But first, Lobo has to go to Hell...a little sooner than anticipated!Metal icon Scott Ian of Anthrax makes his comics debut, joining forces with visionary creator Sam Kieth to bring you a Lobo story that's so over the top, you won't even remember what the top used to look like! Bleeding dolphins, demonic Chihuahuas, the world's worst cruise ship, exploding moons, severed heads, and still more sick fraggin' stuff all await you on the Highway to Hell don't miss a single twisted page!

    This issue is above all else a fun exercise by two creators who are clearly having a good time with this project. I love the book's slickly produced prestige format and wish Marvel and DC would give more of their short miniseries the same treatment. In the end, the best thing I can probably say about this book is that I felt like I got my $6.99 worth, and that I smiled more times than I sighed. Read Full Review

    Mania - Chris Smits Nov 6, 2009

    Too roughly done to command the $6.99 price tag. Though it's a fun premise and Ian seems to have an understanding of the twisted delight that can come from a Lobo adventure, it still needed some more work done on it. I love the format of a bigger book but this one didn't seem to hit enough high marks to leave me feeling like it was money well spent. I'm going to grade this at a D+ and hope that Scott Ian keeps trying his hand at comic books. He's got the right ideas and I'm still curious to see what else he can come up with but he still needs some more work in nailing the finished product. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Nov 7, 2009

    If this is the best Scott Ian and Sam Keith can do, then two issues is far too long for this series. Maybe as a six-page story in a "Bizarro Comics"-style anthology it would have worked. Because this just doesn't. Read Full Review
