Lobster Johnson: A Scent of Lotus #2 (of 2)

Lobster Johnson: A Scent of Lotus #2 (of 2)
Lobster Johnson sits in a funny place in the comic book world. While tied into the over-arching mythos of the BPRD world, he also serves as a throw back to the pulp heroes of yester-year. His unbridled quest for justice more often than not, leaves him at ends not only with himself, but the world around him. Scent of Lotus: Part Two picks up right where the first issue left off; Johnson, wounded and in over his head. Working with the local police department and the Yakuza, can LJ put aside his own black and white beliefs to stop a killer and his monkeys?!
Tieing in with previous LJ titles, and with that of BPRD: Plague of Frogs, Scent of Lotus is a great little piece of fan service. Unfortunatly, there just isn’t a whole lot of anything else. The story, while pleasing, doesn’t offer anything we haven’t seen before. The biggest problem for a character like Lobster, is the fact that a character like Batman exists. While Batman and LJ may be different characters, on different labels, the two are admittedly cut from the same cloth. The problem is that while Lobster tales are released periodically, Batman which is released monthly and thanks a lot to writer Scott Sndyer, is one of the best mainstream books on shelves today. So, y’know, when you have that to go up against, you better be telling something special. Yet, at the end of the day LJ comes across as feeling ‘batman lite’ and in this day and age, that’s not going to cut it.
Fiumara does a very serviceable job with the tale, as his natural pulp stylings harken back to a time long forgotten in the world of comic books. While the characters deal with the consequences of greys in their black and white world, expert colourist Dave Stewart treats the reader to a pallatte of considerable depth, particularly during the climatic ending.
Lobster Johnson: A Scent of Lotus #2 is a serviable story, but at the end of the day, it’s no more than that. With all the great work within the BPRD universe of late, not every one is going to be a winner. But those looking for something Batman-esque in between reads will find something to enjoy.
