Of course he does. Lobo may be a DC character, but stylistically he's more in line with 2000 AD and Heavy Metal releases, especially his 90s stuff (unsurprisingly, as it was inked by Simon Bisley), and by those standards all the gore and sadism is pretty much to be expected. And if you think this is the epitome of messy, you probably don't want to know what the French come up with.

You mean French artists for Lobo, or just Franco-Belgian BD in general?

Especially talking Métal Hurlant stuff here. Granted, lots of that was in the 80s, but artists like Enki Bilal seemed to have a love for casual disembowelment and Lovecraftian body horrors back then [lol] .

Ah, those. Bah. Where I come from, those were School Study Media. I read my first Métal Hurlant issue at age twelve; it involved a guy descending on a pterodactyl on some other guy who had a hot wife, murdering him, going to shag the hot wife, only to find that she had an incredibly ugly face, and leave. And then there was that super Shoot the Shaggy Dog story about an Ark that survived a Class X Apocalypse How but did not contain a single living thing. It was hauntingly beautiful.

Métal Hurlant was awesome in the original sense of the word.

Anyway, yeah, their Gorn is very different from Dark Age US Gorn: the former is very detached and matter-of-fact, as if they were challenging the reader to object to what's going on, while the latter is very spectacular and focused-upon, as if they were encouraging the reader to revel in it.

Either would be problematic to adapt to video games, unless you adopt an Amnesia: The Dark Descent approach, and even then...

Got a point about the different ways in depicting/contextualising extreme violence. When I think of contemporary success series like Lanfeust de Troy (and especially its even more popular spinoff Trolls de Troy), this is casual gorn at its best. And it's supposed to be a comic book for youths, no less. They sure love their gore, guts and genital mutilation waii .

The Troy series is hilarious from beginning to end. A pity that the English translations suck so much. But then again, how do you translate gems such as "Fallait pas louper l'Hébus!"

And it's for youths because, let's face it, the humor is extremely juvenile (Toilet Humour, Bloody Hilarious, Incredibly Lame Pun, Double Entendre, Single Entendre And Proud Of It...), and the violence does not even try to look mature, like Dark Age comics used to; it's less like "RIP AND TEAR YOUR GUTS RIP AND TEAR!" and more like gut fireworks that just serve to accentuate the action.

Hébus and Wade would get along swimmingly.

Gunpla is amazing!
The "stealth" kills in this game are great.

So this game is funny and stuff, but I guess its gameplay wise mediocre at least from what review scores say?
Time to change the style, for now

Pretty much. However, I've found something that's kinda interesting: TotalBiscuit thinks that the game may actually be parodying elements of not only gaming, but also Deadpool himself, a la Spec Ops: The Line:

Glitch-tastic!
Ladies and gentlemen, the game has now been delisted from Steam, Xbox Live, and PlayStation Network.

After Capcom lost the Marvel license, it seems like Activision (and its oodles of cash) would be among the last companies to lose the rights to sell a Marvel game (other recent Activision-made Marvel games, such as The Amazing Spider-Man, appear to be untouched thus far).

Looks to me like Marvel/Disney's trying to make it so that the only digitally available Marvel games are ones that are ones approved and/or at least partially made by Disney (aka whitewashed kids' games like LEGO Marvel).

But that's probably the paranoia in me speaking.

Hey, if it leads to Marvel based videogames going through the same process that led us from crap like Daredevil and the Fantastic Four movies to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, then it's good enough for me.

A case could be made that cleaning up refuse is all he ever does.

Yes, but the only refuse he should be cleaning up is the human kind. Not literal garbage.

Also, it appears that the rest of Activision's Mahvel games (sans Amazing Spider-Man) have also become digital ninjas.
