A look inside the LUTHOR HC with Lee Bermejo

They say you you can't go back, the past is the past. It isn't always true. When Azzarello and I found out we had the opportunity to add some additional material to our Lex Luthor story, it was like someone gave us the keys to the DeLorean. Although I think we can both look back at Luthor with some pride, there's also a bit of unfinished business there. That is, until now.
October sees the release of the NEW AND IMPROVED Luthor. A new hardcover collection of the original mini-series with all new story pages (half an issue's worth) and bonus sketchbook material. Also, when I say new story material, I really mean it. We've actually added new sequences throughout the book as well as adding pieces to existing scenes and re-shuffling the position of others.
This 'new cut' really enhances the original story and broadens it. For example, here are a couple pages we added to issue three, sans coloring and lettering.
In the original version, the fight between Superman and Batman was cut off towards the end. These two new pages continue the last page of the fight and allow readers to really find out what Superman was after.
What you see here is just the beginning. Wrapped in a new cover, this book is our time machine. Jump in with us.
