Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 10 Up–This fresh treatment of an old relationship is squarely in the tradition of sophisticated alternate treatments of classic heroes. Lex Luthor finds Superman's alien preternatural calm and taciturn manner so irritating that he creates his own superhero. Hope, his glamorous new superprotégée, has the personality and media savvy that Superman never will. Lex hires a local pedophile supervillain, the Toyman, to carry out a day-care bombing and intends for Hope to achieve a public triumph by catching and murdering him. But as all comics readers know, the rule of law must always win out over vigilante justice. Here Bruce Wayne, Batman, is nothing but a wealthy industrialist, part of the corporate Gotham world, while Superman stays away from the bright lights. Bermejo's sleek coloring and line design maintain DC's high standards. Superman appears angrier and without the ludicrous muscles he often sports; Bruce Wayne is roguish instead of his usual polished self. Clearly for older readers for its moral questioning, this title deserves a home in libraries looking for brainy and subtle superhero reads.–John Leighton, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

Review

Praise for Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo's Joker:

"An ink-dark series about consequence-free revenge"—NEW YORK TIMES STYLE MAGAZINE

"A meditation on money, power and morality. . . for our money, the  best current ongoing series."—PLAYBOY

"The story has it all: flawed protagonists, dirty cops, conspiracy, guns and that big mistake that makes it all go wrong."—CHICAGO TRIBUNE --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I was told about this graphic novel by a friend and was really excited to check it out! Definitely worth the buy! Great art and a entertaining story from the perspective of Lex.

The artwork is beautiful. The storyline puts us in a place where Lex Luthor owns and runs the business. Uses some dirty tricks. Sees the long term effect of superheros as a stop to human willingness to survive and acts on it!

I loved Joker from Azzarello that was release after Luthor and decided to buy Luthor. Just long enough, I believe there's some opportunity for a second volume which i would buy day one of it's release. Great insight on the character that's more than often pictured as a self-centered maniac but is in fact an Idealist with good intention in the next 20 moves.

Top artwork, great short story!

Well worth price. This should be the next man of steel movie. Blend in a bit of J.L.A. and you got a winner.

I think this is a ok story. It helps you understand Mr. Luthor's motivations But as far as Superman VS Luthor story goes, I enjoyed Superman Red Son a lot more.
