Currently I'm rereading Darwin Cooke's adaptation of Parker: The Score again, but since I already covered that book before (in Currently Reading Wednesdays 11.75, true believers!), I thought I might as well cover the book I read last week, Lobster Johnson: Get the Lobster, written by Mike Mignola and John Arcudi, with art by Tonči Zonjić. I don't think I've ever covered the Lobster Johnson series here before, so here's a quick overview: Lobster Johnson (or just the Lobster here, as he won't be called that for a while) is a hardcore pulp superhero who kills gangsters and burns a lobster claw insignia onto their foreheads. He works with a crew of allies and helpers to hunt down crooks and other malicious ne'er-do-wells.

Anyway, this one's actually a later book in the Lobster Johnson series, and I gotta admit I was pretty confused with regards to who everybody was. But I got over this pretty quickly, and had a pulpy good time. Overall I'd recommend this one to anybody who enjoyed super-violent pulp fiction stories and wanted a fix, but I'd really advise them to read The Iron Prometheus and The Burning Hand first.
