Good News Bad News: Marv Wolfman, Tony Bedard, And The “Twilight” Lobo
Here’s an article about some good stuff going on in the DC Universe. There’s been quite the controversy the past few days with J.H. Williams III and the Batwoman team leaving the title over repeated eleventh hour editorial interference, so DC could use a good bit of news. Unfortunately their good news comes with a cover that will add fuel to an old fire. We’ll get the good news out of the way first. Read on for the good, the bad, and the…too pretty?
Bleeding Cool reports that Marv Wolfman (co-creator of Blade, Nova, Raven, Starfire, Cyborg, Tim Drake and many more) will be returning to DC this December to write Superboy #26 which kicks off an entirely new arc. Another writer taking on another super book, this time Supergirl, will be Tony Bedard. Bedard was last seen on Green Lantern: New Guardians. He also wrote some fill-ins for Supergirl. Well now he will be taking over Supergirl with issue #26 to write a new arc as well. That’s two pieces of pretty good news, right? Well Bedard‘s arc will feature Supergirl going toe-to-toe with the new Lobo.
That’s right folks, the new Lobo that fans have dubbed “Twilight Lobo” has made his return on the cover of Supergirl #26. We had been told that this look was altered from the concept art we saw a few weeks ago and the Lobo of Villains Month would be a little more rough and tumble. Well he does fill out the costume better than his pipsqueak concept art stand-in, but he’s still got the same costume and overall look. While this cover may have been completed before whatever we may or may not see in the Villains Month issue out this coming Wednesday, it’s a good bet this is indeed the final Lobo look. Bleeding Cool got their hands on the covers to both Wolfman and Bedard‘s debut issues. You can see the controversial Supergirl vs. Lobo cover under the Superboy one. What do you think? Did you believe the Lobo controversy had died down, or did you expect a round 2?
