Comic Cover Of The Week: Crush and Lobo #1
Welcome, fellow fans of fantastic fiction to another cheerful and captivating cornucopia of comic cover collectables! This weeks rambunctious and radiant rendering spotlights none other than the calamitous, capricious and certifiably crazy – Crush! dyspeptic disaffected daughter of legendary lupine loudmouth – Lobo!!
Crush and Lobo #1 holds the definitive distinction of being the first issue of DC Comics’ Pride Month celebration. That’s right, DC – that bodacious bastion of superlative superheroics is celebrating its LGBT characters with a month long cadre of classic comics dedicated to diversity and inclusivity, bombastically beginning right here with Lobo’s dynamic daughter – Crush.
Y’know, in case anyone was wondering, Crush is doing just fine, actually. Okay, sure, she recently walked away from her classmates at the Roy Harper Titans Academy, and effectively quit being a Titan in a bewildering and belligerent blaze of glory. And, yeah alright, her relationship with her almost too good to be true girlfriend – Katie, is kinda on the rocks, if you really want to get technical about it. Oh, and she recently found out that her dysfunctional dad – Lobo is in space jail, but that’s sorta cool, as he’s the worst. Okay, okay, maybe Crush has some stuff to work through, but that doesn’t mean she’s actually gonna do anything about that, y’know like actually go into space and confront her dad or her other myriad problems, because everything is FINE, right!?
