Issue Notes

Comic has consecutively 3 full covers on glossy paper complete with title, credits and masthead, Only the first cover has the indicia on the reverse, however.

The front cover to this issue and the cover to the next issue in the series created a bit of controversy as the muscles on the back of the arms leading down to Lobo's elbow are surprisingly phallic. When asked about this, cover painter Bisley laughed them off as "just muscles." For more phallic cover fun, Lobo kindly directs you to examine Valkyrie's fingers on the cover to Defenders #130 from Marvel Comics.
