Title: Lobster Johnson Vol. 3: Satan Smells a Rat
Author: Mike Mignola, John Arcudi
Illustrator: Kevin Nowlan, Sebastian Fiumara, Wilfredo Torres, Tonci Zonjic, Joe Querio, Dave Stewart
Series: Lobster Johnson #3
In this volume, Lobster Johnson takes on a Nazi-filled zeppelin, an assassin with an army of monkeys, and an Egyptian high priestess.
This was an interesting collection of pulp stories because it had very diverse villains. I liked the stories in this one, but I didn’t enjoy them as much as I have previous volumes. I think part of the problem is I felt some of the stories just abruptly end. They needed more development.
Lobster Johnson is still a ridiculously great antihero and I still really enjoy watching him kick ass. The artwork was wonderful, as always. This series has some of my favorite artwork from the Mignolaverse comics (at least from what I have read.) I can’t wait to see what shenanigans the Lobster will get into next.
