Lobo: A Contract on Gawd (#1-4)

Everyone’s favourite last Czarnia bounty hunter, Lobo, returned in this classic mini-series A Contract on Gawd in April 1994! Only this time he had promised Vril Dox that he would not engage in any bounty hunting but Lobo is approached by a group of monks in a space bar, who want to hire his services as a hitman to kill their oppressive deity, a being known as “Gawd”. As they speak, the terrified monks are progressively smitten by bolts of lightning from the sky, and killed whenever each of them attempts to commit some sort of sin. Lobo agrees to perform the hit, although insisting that as he’s promised Vril Dox not to accept money for bounty work anymore, he’ll do it as a freebie just for the opportunity of fragging a cosmic being.

Lobo travels to the monks’ homeworld, “Paradize”, and enters a local church and demands that the preacher inform him where to find Gawd. He gets in a fight with the local police force (the “Sin Police”), and ends up gassed and thrown into jail. After discerning from a fellow prisoner that Gawd apparently resides in the “Valley of the Sound of Music”, Lobo easily escapes his captivity with his Spacehog and proceeds to frag every single Sin Policeman he can find before heading off to find Gawd.

Later, Lobo is attacked by angels. He kills all but one of them and screams for Gawd to appear or else he’ll kill the last angel. Gawd arrives, and Lobo kills the final angel.

Lobo attacks Gawd, but Gawd just throws up a force shield that blocks Lobo from doing him any harm. Gawd offers Lobo women, riches and power to leave Gawd alone. Lobo declines and takes Gawd’s name in vain, allowing Gawd to send him to Hell. In Hell, some demons knock out Lobo and chop off part of Lobo’s tongue. Lobo makes one of the demons eat his tongue and kills the other two. Lobo intimidates his way out of Hell and goes to confront Gawd face to face…
