I've been trying to find a comic I came across in the early 2000's I believe.

The main character had pale white skin and I think his eyes were either black or tattooed. He was a barbarian type of character who could not feel pain, but that made getting hurt more difficult for him since he couldn't tell how badly hurt he was. Or something to that effect.

Does anyone know what this is?

    I'm sure you should have remembered and mentioned this, but he didn't have a set of lobster claws attached to his hips? – FuzzyBoots Aug 3 '18 at 6:39
  • @FuzzyBoots Not that I recall. – Arcade109 Aug 3 '18 at 10:48

Given you don't remember lobster claws, and he's more modern, it's probably not Lobster Random, but I figure he's worth mentioning.

Lobster Random

Lobster Random is a comic strip that ran in 2000 AD, by Simon Spurrier and Carl Critchlow.

Lobster Random was once just an average grunt. After being wounded in combat (his first gunfight no less), he is "volunteered" into the Lobster squad and given a pair of lobster claws grafted onto his hips. The result of this is he can no longer feel pain nor does he need to sleep. After winning the war, his entire unit barring himself and his Sergeant are wiped out in an explosion at a celebratory party. Lob himself is discharged and becomes a torturer for hire.



Lobo is a fictional character that appears in comic books published by DC Comics. The Lobo character was created by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen, and first appeared in Omega Men #3 (June 1983). Lobo is an alien born on the utopian planet of Czarnia, and works as an interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter.

  • If it wasn't for the "he doesn't realize how bad he's hurt", I'd say it could have been a match. But Lobo is this kind of crazy who does know, and most of the time, is not bothered by it, since he knows he'll regrow what he lost. Some other times, it's a bit more personal... see this panel :p – Jenayah Aug 10 '18 at 15:22
