Written by Brian Azzarello
Art and cover by Lee Bermejo
Superman has been called many things, from the defender of Truth, Justice and the American way to the Big Blue Boy Scout. In LEX LUTHOR: MAN OF STEEL, he is called something he never been called before: a threat to all humanity!
In this trade paperback collecting the acclaimed 5-issue miniseries LEX LUTHOR: MAN OF STEEL, fan-favorite writer Brian Azzarello (SUPERMAN, 100 BULLETS) teams up with artist Lee Bermejo (BATMAN/DEATHBLOW) for a bold story in which readers get a glimpse into the mind of Superman's longtime foe. MAN OF STEEL reveals why Luthor chooses to be the proverbial thorn in the Man of Steel's side - to save humanity from an untrustworthy alien being.

Another volume of offbeat and hysterical Plas adventures by Harvey and Eisner Award-winning cartoonist Kyle Baker! In RUBBER BANDITS, collecting PLASTIC MAN #8-11 and #13-14, our pliable hero wrecks continuity as we know it, investigates a vampire, gets in trouble with homeland security, battles a menacing mouse, and stops one of the worst crimes ever: illegal music downloading!

Everyone's always talking about this (seemingly) is it any good? I'm always down for some good comedy...

Plastic Man started off great, and then just kinda fizzled out over time. The first 12 issues or so are worth reading. Beyond that, not so much.

Issues #8-11 were the best on Plastic Man, so this would be the trade to pick up!

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
