Review: Lobster Johnson #3

This series, for me, has become all about the art. Tonci Zonjic's art is fantastic. His line work is clean, no extraneous lines and he does some of the best body language I have seen in a while. I came for Lobster Johnson, but I am staying for Tonci Zonjic now.

The story continues to be a fun pulpy adventure. Lobster Johnson is confronted with the supernatural threat for the first time and realizes he may be out matched.

Or at least unprepared. Arcudi and Mignola have created a fantastic world. A world that will grow to include Hellboy and the BPRD. But it is nice to see a world where these things do not exist yet and where there is no one but Lobster Johnson to combat the supernatural forces, even if on a smaller scale then what Hellboy and the BPRD face.

Lobster Johnson continues to be one of my favorite books month in month out. Any fan of pulp adventures or great art should be reading this book.
