Internal Correspondence Special #4: “Lobo: Frag Race 2000”


You can't keep a bad man down, and FRAG RACE 2000 is proof positive of that.

This four-issue limited series follows the other extremely successful LOBO series, with a script by Keith Giffen and Alan Grant, and finished art by Simon Bisley.

Lobo is given the job of apprehending a felon who is posing as a race car driver in the biggest, most dangerous cross-planetary drag race in the universe: the FRAG RACE 2000. This is an endurance test of man and machine, and Lobo signs on as a driver to find the creep in question. And since he can't figure out which driver is his quarry, he decides to frag them all!

This four-issue miniseries features the biggest, baddest cars in the universe, and, needless to say, tons of violence and laughs!

In other words, anything goes!

I've labored for twenty years under the delusion that this book happened. I was confident that Biz didn't draw it, since he never even finished Lobo's Back, but I was fairly certain it was still solicited as a one shot by a different artist. A gander at online resources reveals that if this script ever got written, it's still in a drawer somewhere. I do wonder if this might have morphed into Lobo: Unamerican Gladiators, though. I think that the art on this page is from the Paramilitary Xmas Special, but can't bother to check.
