BLOODLINES, DC's Summer Annual crossover event, begins here. From interdimensional space come lifeforms as ferocious and predatory as they are hideous...shape-shifting parasites that inhabit a living spaceship and harbor a terrible secret that threatens the planet Earth. It's death from beyond the stars for an angry Main Man when Lobo is ordered by Chief Dox to investigate a disturbing rift in space. But Dox places special L.E.G.I.O.N. agent Layla in charge of the mission and Lobo finds that he's met his match in the butt-kickin' department...especially when Layla goes on to become the first New Blood in the DC Universe! Continues in Superman: The Man of Steel Annual #2.
