    Interesting story, but it could have been a lot better.

    This is not the Lex I know. The character of Lex Luthor fascinates me, and this work does a good job of exposing his current utter ruthlessness and the depths to which he will descend to get what he wants, but it ignores Luthor's tortured past. Lex Luthor is not pure evil for evil's sake - there are motivations for his actions, possibly so deep in his subconscious by now that even he would be hard pressed to identify them, but they do exist. I resisted purchasing this particular Lex story for a This is not the Lex I know.

I resisted purchasing this particular Lex story for a long time, but half-price day at the comic book store did me in. This is an interesting little murder mystery, but adds nothing to the appeal or intrigue of Lex for me.

    The graphics adds a lot to this oneshot.

    Solid exploration of Lex's character, though doesn't quite reach the heights of Lex Luthor: Man of Steel, either in art or story.

    Yes, this is a one shot 'prestige' style comic book. Yes, it was admitted by the creators to mirror trump's art of the deal. Yes, it is very very good. It's essentially a modern origin for Mr. Luthor. In the silver age Lex was a Smallville resident like Clark Kent/Superboy. One day his lab caught fire and Superboy's superbreath spilled chemicals that made Lex's hair fall out. It may have made him extremely vain also; not sure. After this he vowed vengeance on Superboy for the loss of his hair. Yup. Yes, this is a one shot 'prestige' style comic book. Yes, it was admitted by the creators to mirror trump's art of the deal.

After this he vowed vengeance on Superboy for the loss of his hair. Yup. He became a mortal enemy because of hair loss. That origin changed after John Byrne's mid-80's reboot. This origin is more wicked. Lex is born with hate. Hate for his parents, his station in life, everything. So, he's smart and does something about that. He then builds an empire and hates Superman because the public likes The Man of Steel more than Lex. Oh, well. Recommended. Find this in comic book stores or amazon.

    This is a weird one, in that it seems like an attempt to bring the Dark Knight Returns / "grim and gritty" atmosphere to the Superman universe (and also cash in on the Trump biography: the cover is the best thing about this book). The opening scene, with Clark Kent being held on suspicion for murder, sounds better than what's actually executed in the book. Most of the story concerns a down-on-his-luck journalist trying to write Lex Luthor's unauthorized biography and biting off more than he can This is a weird one, in that it seems like an attempt to bring the Dark Knight Returns / "grim and gritty" atmosphere to the Superman universe (and also cash in on the Trump biography: the cover is the best thing about this book). The opening scene, with Clark Kent being held on suspicion for murder, sounds better than what's actually executed in the book. Most of the story concerns a down-on-his-luck journalist trying to write Lex Luthor's unauthorized biography and biting off more than he can chew. But the journalist is dull, the secrets about Luthor are pretty unremarkable, and Luthor himself comes off as little more than a rich, relatively unintelligent thug. Which might be the point, I guess, but the whole thing comes off more as an amusingly dated 1980s relic than a "definitive" Luthor take.

    Not a great story, but it was ok. An ok read. For a character book, this seemed quite light on the character part of the story. It's done in a noire style but runs light enough of the development of the personalities to seem more of a caricature. Overall, if it's cheap and you don't have high expectations, sure.
