5.0 out of 5 stars A beautifully written and lovingly illustrated little masterpiece of modern superhero storytelling, 12 Feb. 2009
This review is from: All Star Superman: v. 1 (Paperback)
Wonderful! That's the word to sum up this graphic novel. Absolutely wonderful! It is not a superhero slug-fest - so if that's what you want, please look elsewhere - but a deeply moving and lovingly created exploration of Superman's affect upon the world of mankind and the world of mankind's affect on him as he approaches his death, brought on by a cataclysmic and very cosmic accident.

Each chapter (original issue) deals with Superman's connection with those he both loves (Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, etc.) and those he tries not to hate (such as Lex Luthor).

This may well be the greatest Superman graphic novel/comic ever produced, and it is certainly the finest work of art produced by the fabulous team of Grant Morrison (writer) and Frank Quietly (artist). Though I also recommend their other collaborations We3 and JLA: Earth 2.

If you like your superhero storytelling to be somewhat more cerebral and full of compassion and feeling and touching enough to produce a tear or two, then you will utterly love this (and most probably seek out volume 2 as well).

If you want extra clarification on this point, check out the 29 five star reviews on Amazon.com.
