    Default Lobster Johnson: what's next?

    Well, we just got the Lobster Johnson: Mangekyo one-shot this month, and a tpb collection (Vol. 5) is due out towards the end of the year.

    Any hints yet as to if / when / what a new Lobster Johnson tale will be available in the foreseeable future?

    I don't know anything on that front though I hope we get back to Memnan Saa in the near future.

    And tpb Vol. 6 (A Chain Forged in Life) is due out in March (2018).
    But still no word of when any new stories may be coming, I guess.

    Given the ending of The Pirate's Ghost, my hope for what's next is a Chicago arc.

    I'd love to see a Zinco–Davis Laboratories arc with Detective Norvell Cooper in 1938, after the run-in with Stanley Corn.

    Oh, and I'd love to see the Lobster stumble into some of Sir Edward's history from 1914 to 1916, when he was active in New York and Chicago. There's something interesting to me about them having to learn what really happened in an Edward Grey incident, especially if the crew were essentially children when Sir Edward was active.

    And you could even make it a story where Sir Edward dealt with a menace back in his day and it was defeated by being trapped in something (a sarcophagus, a statue, or whatever) only to be accidently released again (by clumsy workmen in a museum?) during the Lobster's time period.
    It could be a five-issue arc where the odd-numbered issues focus on the Lobster during his time, then the two even-numbered issues focus on Sir Edward dealing with the problem back during his era.
