Lets get this out of the way first shall we, this novel is quite possibly one of the best fantasy books that I've ever read.

First things first, All Star Superman Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 combined is a fantastic story. However, this first book takes it's time to set it's elaborate pieces into place; it's really complex as well and rewards multiple readings. Think of it as more of an extended introduction. As a result of this the first half, while still very impressive, is nowhere near as emotionally powerfull as the second book. In fact one starts to wonder why DC havn't made this one volume.

To summarise I would give this book on it's own three stars,however combined with the second half this is easily a five star read. So if your buying it dont give up halfway, you'll regret it!
