Removing Lobo's Spine From Issue One

But that's not the only such scene receiving censorship. This is from Lobo #1, with Classic Lobo being decapitated by Lipstick Lobo.

But here's the original scene, as drawn by Reilly Brown and posted on his tumblr.


Spine, lungs and other gubbins removed for "taste"…
