But You're The Only One Without A Costume

Or so my brother-in-law said. Don't let the Infanticide word scare you off, they were like vampire aliens. Lobo himself was created to sort of mock Marve's Ghost Rider and cosmic superheroes. Well, for each of the four issue mini-series, there was some sort of contest. One was "Lobo Lookalike." Chris Turek suggested I send my fake mug shot photo, which at the time was hanging in the comic shop window with a WANTED FOR MURDER sign above it, this was to scare off would be robbers when they saw me behind the counter. Simpler days. Mike Dunleavy calls me at home weeks later, there I was in the Lobo comic. Could have been worse, I could have been on the ad for Joker Comics.
