Lobo: Missing In Action

loboWith Guy Ritchie directing Lobo, wouldn’t this be a perfect time for DC to pull out the completed Lobo series by Alan Grant and Frank Quitely? Entitled The Hand Job, The Hand-To-Hand Job or It’s A Man’s World, Alan Grant describes it as

It’s a parody of Hugh Hefner. The guy gets kidnapped by this male-liberation group because his exposure of the female body is responsible for female lib. This is one of these Iron John male-bonding groups who kidnap him and they’re gonna torture him, and Lobo is hired to get him back. It was actually quite funny, but it’s never going to see the light of day!

In another interview he added;

For about half the book, Lobo appeared naked. The climax of the story featured 10,000 asteroid miners masturbating..

Surely a Guy Ritchie-directed film might help? It’s not the only completed Lobo project in limbo. Grant also describes another;

We did a 36-page Lobo’s Dog special. At the start of the story, Lobo falls into quicksand, and he’s in danger of drowning – even his great powers can’t get him out of quicksand – so he gives the dog these detailed instructions – “You’ve gotta go do this, get that and save me”. And the dog, by the time you’ve turned over the page, the dog’s seen this female dog (laughter). So it’s away humping, and anyway, it gets involved its own adventure, and it’s only on the second to last page it remembers it has to go back and save Lobo. Anyway, the artist drew the dog complete with bollocks in every picture, and in the pictures where the dog has a secondary role, like something else is happening, he’s drawn the dog just sitting casually scratching itself and licking itself! And DC have paid for it, but now they’ve binned it – they’re never going to put it in an issue because the dog’s got bollocks! Oh, it’s unbelievable…

Sounds just up Guy’s street. Oh and is it too soon to start speculating which role Jason Flemyng (Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, From Hell, League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Stardust, Kickass) will be playing?
