Synopsis for "Introduction"

Lobo begrudgingly begins his guide to bounty hunting by explaining he'd never be giving up his secrets in the first place if it weren't for, "pressin' financial need." He immediately imparts a warning to all would-be bounty hunters that they will likely be faced with chasing down the toughest dudes in the galaxy, just like the mass murder Sharky Depravo he has chained to a chair. With more examples of bounty warrants like Mr. Starr, Evil Shtevel and My Lady Sin, Lobo then requests a volunteer. With no responses, Lobo breaks the fourth wall and pulls a comic book browser by the name of Leslie into the story.

Synopsis for "Chapter 1: Weaponry"

Lobo explains the variety and importance of weapons, using fellow bounty hunters as examples. Bone-Idle Burraz never even needs to leave the house with the use of smart missiles (demonstrating on Sharky.) Jonas Glim demonstrates the multi-purpose Krupps 101, (again on Sharky.) Billy the Girl uses her feminine allure to disarm her target before she sucker punches him with her bio-implant Knuckleshox. Lobo makes a clear point that Billy's strategy requires the right assets, calling out Leslie in the same outfit Billy wore to demonstrate. Leslie is pounded to the ground. Lobo concludes by listing his usual overkill arsenal he takes on jobs.

Synopsis for "Chapter 2: The Image"

Lobo explains the importance of having a tough image which, in turn, builds a feared reputation amongst outlaws. 'Bo then gives Leslie an image make over and a new alias, Big Bad Lez. When Lez thanks Lobo, the Main Man slaps some sense into him until he speaks like a real bastich.

Synopsis for "Chapter 3: The Approach"

Lobo sends Big Bad Lez to approach a bounty with a prepared script. The target, Geraldo, is twice the size of Lez and pummels him through the floor.

Lobo gives Lez a chance to redeem himself, sending him into an alien race of canines with a wanted poster. Lez can't tell any of the dog citizens apart and asks one of them if they knew the outlaw Animalez Jonez. The stranger is Jonez himself, who points him towards the President. Lez once again is beaten to a pulp. Lobo warns never to trust anybody, then demonstrates how it os done properly. By hooking Jonez through the nose and examining him against the poster, he confirms his identity before shooting him in the head.

Lobo displays a more surreptitious approach for the next example. A mafia birthday is interrupted by a Gorilla-Gram delivery. Suspicious of the costumed individual, the mobsters gun the messenger down. While their backs are turned, Lobo emerges from the gift box that was delivered. Announcing his arrival, Lobo lays waist to the startled mob.

Synopsis for "Chapter 4: How to Get the Best Jobs"

Lobo takes Lez to Bunsen's Bounty to point out the pros (camaraderie) and cons (greedy agents) of a bounty agency. 'Bo cautions not to select warrants that seem fishy, ones that have gone unclaimed for a long time, for example. Lez disagrees and chooses what he assumes is an easy warrant on Pete the Psychic Psycho. Being psychic, Pete knows Lez will come after him and ambushes him as soon as he walks out of the building. Pete never foresaw Lobo shooting him in the back however.

Lobo mentions the best bounty hunters rely on their reputations to attract lucrative work, but those who have yet to build up a rep can always use the classifieds. Of course, anyone printing themselves in the paper make themselves easy targets for bounty hunter hunters, as Lez discovers.

Finally, the Main Man warns never to tackle anyone out of your league. Lez learns this lesson the hard way by trying to arrest Etrigan who engulfs him in Hellfire.

Synopsis for "Chapter 5: Double Up - or Quits?"

Lobo imparts his wisdom on the benefits and risks of partnering up with other bounty hunters, once again using Lez as a guinea pig, this time partnered with Johnny Quietus. Lez storms the Van Dallas Gang's hideout from the front, guns blazing, while Quietus takes down anyone trying to escape out the back. Lez congratulates Quietus on an easy 100,000 credits to split between them, to which Quietus responds by blasting Lez away. Lobo reiterates the importance of his previous rule to never trust nobody, before playing out the scenario again. This time, Lez pistol-whips Quietus before he can betray him, but is shot in the back by Van Dallas who was playing possum. As Quietus recovers from the blow, Van Dallas thanks him for letting him live in exchange for delivering his gang and taking out Quietus' partner. Quietus then draws on Van Dallas, claiming his bounty too. "Learn it guys! Never - fraggin' - trust - nobody!"

This leads 'Bo to reinforce a sideline point, make sure you have a killer instinct. If the poster says "Dead or Alive," consider them dead. Lez is pitted against Skipio in a violent gunfight. Lez makes a clean shot, literally disarming Skipio who tries to flee. Lez takes careful aim and separates both of his legs from his body. Lez approaches the crippled and helpless Skipio, telling him he will hang legally. Skipio opens his mouth revealing a frag grenade, taking Lez out with him. Lobo then demonstrates correct procedure with three bounty targets. Regardless of what they plead, bribe, or threaten, they all receive the same response, a gunshot to the head from pointblank range.

Synopsis for "Chapter 6: Disguises"

Lobo admits to the benefits of disguises if the situation calls for it, such as tuxedos and kilts, but he draws the line at tutus. He then dresses Lez up to look just like him, even painting his face. Lez enjoys the fear the Main Man's appearance inspires in others until he enters a dive bar and is murdered by a group of wanted men. As they celebrate "killing Lobo" the real 'Bo catches them off guard, bagging himself a big paycheck, while again reinforcing the idea not to trust anyone.

Synopsis for "Chapter 8: Testing Your Abilities"

Lobo puts Big Bad Lez to the test. His final exam to demonstrate all the skills he's learned. Lobo informs Lez he has released Sharky Depravo and it's his bounty to collect. Lez had previously tortured the whereabouts of Sharky out of a stooge, and now heads to his hideout. From a distance Lez surveys the hostage situation. Not taking any chances, Lez snipers Sharky with a head-shot from long range. Ecstatic, he enters the building to recover the hostage, only to find the hostage dead on the ground, dressed as Sharky. The "hostage" in the chair reveals his true identity and riddles Lez with holes. Sharky gloats over the dying novice bounty hunter, when Lez unveils the frag grenade hidden in his mouth. Sharky's durable skin allows him to survive the blast but he doesn't count on Lobo to enter the fray. After thanking Sharky for his help throughout his educational guide, Lobo gives him a clean, painless death. At Leslie's burial, Lobo once again imparts his most important rule, "Never trust Nobody!"
