Hellboy Book Club Episode 25 - Lobster Johnson: The Iron Prometheus
The Book Club has reached the pinnacle of MURDER MASTERS, and is finally diving into the exploits of fan favorite series Lobster Johnson. In The Iron Prometheus, The Lobster meets a certain Sledgehammer-suit user, tangles with our boy Memnan Saa, and just kills everyone he can.
This is before the astonishing work of Tonci Zongic, but features the amazingly sharp work of Jason Armstrong, whom I wish would come do another series somewhere. This book also kicks off the now standard practice of the Mignolaverse look-back, as we develop the history before the Boy, and helps to deepen an awful lot of things you didn’t even know you were interested in. Enjoy!
