1995 Skybox DC Villains: The Dark Judgment Lobo Trading Card #36
As I'll elaborate momentarily, Lobo just popped back on my radar, and reminded me that despite previous assertions, I hadn't really finished posting scans of all the Martian Manhunter related villains from this Underworld Unleashed tie-in card set. Besides the 'Bo here, and previously noted omissions like Silver Banshee and the Demon Etrigan (still too big a reach for me,) there's a chase card subset featuring Doomsday, Darkseid and Mongul in a nine panel image I'll have to do something with. I'd just knock the whole thing out, but I'm missing a panel (stupid Joker!) and I don't need three individual posts (as least for now.)
As for the card itself, it's painted by Lobo's most popular artist, Simon Bisley. The Biz always lent Lobo a heavy metal look, but the star spangled stretch pants strike me as a tad more David Lee Roth than James Hetfield. Then again, one of the reasons I continue to find Lobo amusing is that he's so clearly a poseur, this fashion faux pas just strikes me as another winky "tell."
