DC Comics Previews ‘Crush & Lobo’ #1 Launching As Part Of Pride Month Celebrations

by Olly MacNamee

Crush & Lobo #1 by Mariko Tamaki, Amancay Nahuelpan, Tamra Bonvillain and Ariana Maher, debuts as part of DC Comics plans to celebrate Pride month this June. And now we get a good first look at the debut issue as well as a sneak peek at the covers for the following up issue ofd this eight issue series.

But, what’s she been up to since the disbanding of the Teen Titans? Well, fear not…

“…in case anyone was wondering, Crush is doing just fine, actually. Sure, she recently walked away from her classmates at the Roy Harper Titans Academy and effectively quit being a Teen Titan in a blaze of glory. And okay, her relationship with her too-good-to-be-true girlfriend Katie is kind of on the rocks, if you want to get all technical about it. Oh, and she recently found out Lobo’s in space jail, but that’s cool, because he’s the worst. OKAY, maybe Crush has some STUFF, but that doesn’t mean she’s gonna DO anything about it, like actually go to space and confront her dad and all her problems, because everything is FINE…Right?”

“And in issue #2 of this new miniseries, if there’s anything Crush knows, it’s that traveling through space is a great time to load up on coffee, catch up on murder podcasts, and definitely not get sucked into a spiral of depression while reflecting on your meet-cute with the ex-girlfriend who just dumped you. When Crush’s trusty travel mug runs dry, a pit stop for caffeine puts Lobo’s daughter face to face with an old enemy whose vicious revenge could put an end to her journey — when it’s only just barely begun! Tick tock, Crush…your father’s waiting.”
