Axe Body Spray Comic By Scott Lobdell And You?

That’s a commercial for Axe body spray, something called Anarchy. What kind of cop needs a gun when you’re pursuing a criminal? Pft! Whatever, this is along the lines with their regular marketing. But then I saw this on Robot 6.

Axe is doing an interactive graphic novel where fans on Facebook and Twitter can help write the story, which is all about hot chicks (which looks like soft-core porn now and will probably be straight up porn by the time users are done with it). And who did I spot in this commercial? None other than Scott Lobdell.

Call the timing perfect or unfortunate. Axe Anarchy is making a comic book to promote their sexy, sexy spray and Lobdell just happens to be one of the creators on the project. I can’t find confirmation of this anywhere online but sources have told me that this is indeed Lobdell. Yes, the creator who made us so angry last year with his new take on DC Comics’ Starfire in Red Hood and the Outlaws. Oh, the irony.

    What does "done in real-time" mean? I do most things in real-time…

    Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn't find a contact email for you.

    I recently put out an ebook of my writing, called The New Death and others. It's a collection of short pieces, mostly dark fantasy.

    I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a review on your blog.

    If so, please email me: Let me know what file format is easiest for you, and I'll send you a free copy.

    You can download a sample from the ebook's page on Smashwords:

    I'm also happy to do interviews, guest posts, or giveaways. Just let me know what you'd prefer.

    For years my impression of Lobdell came from the early days of Marvel Comics Presents. For any youngsters out there, it was a comic with no ads and 4 eight-page stories; three would each be chapters of different serials and the fourth would be a 'done-in-one' short story, often with a new minor character or an established character without their own feature at the moment. Lobdell often wrote the shorts and they were re-e-e-eally bad. These were back in the late 1980's and ordinarily I'd be willing to write that off to inexperience, or the fact that that he was sitting side by side with Steve Gerber and Don McGregor and paled in comparison, but after twenty years of chances he still hasn't come up with anything more memorable.

    Sounds like a set up for mind control fan fiction for sure. Is it bothersome to anyone else that the policewoman just dropped her gun belt in the middle of a busy street?
