Lobo: The First Black Comic Book Hero

Lobo was the first black comic book hero! Premiering in 1965 by Dell Comics, Lobo is the premiere African-American comics character to receive their own title. During the Civil War, Lobo was a Union soldier, and was blamed for a crime he didn't commit. He then becomes a wandering outlaw, traveling the old west, using his sharpshooting skills to fight injustice in the wild frontier. Great gunslinger action from the Silver Age! You can download this now at Lulu or Drive Thru Comics, as well as part of the Super Hero Collection.
