“Recomendations Based On Items You’ve Viewed”.

I have never read a single issue of Omega Men.

I have never searched for any issues of Omega Men, or anything even remotely related to it. I haven’t even searched for Lobo or Keith Giffen, or even done a generic science fiction search.

Yet these are eBay’s recommendations based on items I’ve viewed:

Clearly, someone is trying to tell me something.

Unamerican Gladiators.

I was never the world’s biggest Lobo fan, but boy did I get a kick out of this one as a teenager…

Unamerican Gladiators. In which L.E.G.I.O.N. head honcho Vril Dox decides to unearth the corruption behind the Maim Game, a televised, winner take all death match, by tricking Lobo into entering. So we get 4 issues of the Main Man dodging death traps and competing with (and maiming) a bunch of whacked out ridiculous teams. Like a family of body builders (all of whom are so muscle bound they can barely move) a lost and confused Army platoon, and a team of humanoid flies. Several of the concepts and characters for the book were taken straight out of the long underappreciated DC 12 issue miniseries Outcasts, which was written and drawn by the same creative team as U.G.

Suicide Park, the trio of “Killer” Kowalski, B.D. Rickenbacker, and the “immortal” Yancy Queeg (a corpse B.D. carries around in a bucket… long story)… even the Maim Game concept itself has it’s roots in the Outcasts series. Oh, and let’s not forget the Satan Brothers…

Love those guys. Such great heels.

Everyone… dead?

So I had a rather in-depth conversation regarding auditory hallucination vs. negative impulse control and that led me to think…

It’s a violent world. 

And for some reason, we (as humans) seem to be somewhat obsessed with not only violence, but death. And we (as comic fans) reflect that very same thing. Big two, let’s see what you’ve got.

DC? How about… LOBO. DC’s finest badass of the late 80’s and early 90’s… I think he’s lost his bite as of late, but that’s bound to turn around. 

Marvel? No one’s deadlier than Frank Castle… aka…

Or, if a deal is what you seek, howzabout that 2nd printing? 

Or maybe you want to get metaphysical with me and Neil Gaiman. And Death.
