    "The Forgotten Man" is an enjoyable adventure sure to please Lobster Johnson fans. The well-paced one-shot presents its mystery and ties up the loose ends without feeling rushed, but this is not the vehicle to learn about Lobster, as his role is limited to action rather than exposition. If you're not quite so familiar with Hellboy's favorite pulp hero, I recommend catching up with the four trade collections. Read Full Review

    With all these supremely talented creators working seamlessly together, this manages to be a fun done-in-one, like a meet up with an old friend you haven't seen in a while. There's nothing particularly new, as such, but it's definitely good to catch up and see each other again and, most importantly, to make plans to do it all again. Read Full Review

    Here, Lobster is called in to investigate homeless men who have gone missing in a Hooverville in a story that uses horror imagery beautiful drawn by Peter Snejbjerg and noir conventions to tell both an intense, horrific experience that also pays reference to the Lobster's past adventures all while telling the sort of gritty, terrifyingpulp Arcudi excels at. It's maybe not the best Lobster story for new readers but it's a fresh, exciting bit of gritty pulp. Read Full Review
