Welcome to one of the weirdest titles DC has ever assembled 6 issues filled with stories of monsters, ghouls and far-out cosmic craziness! Each month, you'll be treated to new 10-page chapters in three exciting serials. In this debut issue, Kevin Van Hook and Jerry Ordway bring you the continuing adventures of Lobo, everyone's favorite Czarnian (after all, he's the only one left, so he'd better be your favorite). Aaron Lopresti introduces you to his newest creation, the kind-hearted monster called Garbageman. And Kevin Maguire takes you to the farthest reaches of outer space with the introduction of a hero called Tanga! Wrap it all up in a cover by the amazing Justiniano, and you've got a truly monstrous hit on your hands! These artists are letting their freak flags fly join them, why don't you?

    Two out of threethats not so bad. And its not as if the one feature was awfuljust predictable. This series successfully introduces some intriguing brand new characters and enriches DCs somewhat neglected cosmic and horror territory. Theres a lot of fun to be had here; lets hope the series continues to live up to its promise. Read Full Review

    Okay, the Lobo story was a lot of fun, like most properly written Lobo stories are. The Garbage Man story was WAY better then it had any right to be. The Tanga story was akin to torture. She just wouldn't shut up! Read Full Review

    The most well-rounded tale of the bunch features Kevin Maguire's new creation, the space-borne heroine Tanga. Here too is a character that talks too damn much, but at least in Tanga's case the story calls for such an approach. The tale offers Maguire plenty of room to exercise his talent for expressive character work. And though the actual plot is sparse, this is the one story that truly left me wanting to know what happens next. Mainly for that Tanga, I look forward to the release of Weird Worlds #2.

    As far as anthologies go, this one is pretty damn flat. Lobo does what Lobo does, which is maim and kill, drink, smoke, and insult people. Garbage Man feels like a cardboard cutout. Tanga has potential, but nothing to latch onto at this point. I'm not sure what the goal was here, as the three characters have different drivers for their stories. "Weird Worlds" is weird alright, but it's not the worlds in the story bringing the weird. At least it's got great art. Read Full Review
