FIRST LOOK: LEX LUTHOR: MAN OF STEEL #1
Lex Luthor: Man of Steel #1 will arrive in stores on March 3 from DC Comics. The issue is written by Brian Azzarello, with art and cover by Lee Bermejo
Here's how Dark Horse describes the book:
"Superman has been called many things, from the defender of Truth, Justice and the American Way to the Big Blue Boy Scout. In the new 5-issue miniseries Lex Luthor: Man of Steel, he'll be called something he never has before: a dangerous threat to all humanity!
"Fresh off his dynamic run on Superman, Brian Azzarello teams up with Lee Bermejo for a bold story in which readers get a glimpse into the mind of Lex Luthor. Long considered one of DC's most vile villains, Man of Steel reveals why Luthor chooses to be the proverbial thorn in Superman's side -- simply put, to save humanity from an untrusted alien being. Or, as Azzarello himself puts it, 'In this story, Superman is the villain.'"
Lex Luthor: Man of Steel #1 will be 32 pages and will cost $2.99.
FIRST LOOK: OTHERWORLD #1
Otherworld #1 will arrive in stores on March 30 from DC Comics. The issue is written by Phil Jimenez, with art and cover by Jimenez and Andy Lanning.
Here's how DC describes the book:
"Phil Jimenez brings his singular vision to Vertigo with Otherworld, an epic maxiseries that combines the dramatic setup and ensemble cast of Lost and Survivor with the fantasy of The Lord of the Rings trilogy and mind-bending technology of The Matrix.
"Picture a world at war with itself. An idyllic, pastoral land populated by mythological beings that battle endlessly with a nation-state made of pure technology. Into this maelstrom is thrust a group of young people -- some friends, some strangers -- plucked violently from Earth and imbued with superpowers. One in particular, Siobhan Moynihan ‹ an aspiring singer and college student -- is told she's the savior who will either end the war and save the Otherworld...or destroy it forever."
Otherworld #1 will be 40 pages and will cost $2.99.

Here's how Dark Horse describes the issue:
"The Razor's edge cuts into Redbird! Jason Pearson and Ed Brubaker weave a 5-part tale about former Black Ops member Nataly Lakota, a.k.a. Redbird. Following an escape from a government hospital, Nataly disappeared into America, turning up as a mild-mannered apartment manager in Inglewood, California. She's trying to piece her life back together amids drug dealers and gang wars while confronting the issues that had her confined to a government hospital in the first place ‹ namely, a mission gone awry in Guatemala that saw her entire command slaughtered. But she's got enough problems just trying to keep the complex in one piece and the honest residents safe. As if that weren't enough, the government has also dispatched a killer to bring Redbird back -- alive or dead -- since they're not too keen on one of their top agents simply 'walking away!'"
The Razor's Edge: Redbird #1 will be 32 pages and will cost $2.99.
