Review:

"A stirringly mythic, emotionally resonant, and gloriously alternate take on the Man of Steel."

"Grant Morrison is one of the deftest superhero-comics writers of the moment, . . . His collaboration with the artists Frank Quitely and Jamie Grant, is full of mad, cartwheeling invention and airy open spaces.... Clever."--NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
"[Morrison's] affection for the "Superman" cast shines through on every page as he homes in on their iconic demeanors--quietly noble Superman, bumbling Clark Kent, suspicious Lois Lane, boyishly enthusiastic Jimmy Olsen, and brilliantly evil Lex Luthor. . . . .Meanwhile, collaborator Quitely shows that he might be the perfect comic book artist: subtle when necessary, cartoonish when appropriate, and adroit with the action sequences.

SALON, Best Comics of 2007
EW.Com, Best Comic Books of 2007
"A stirringly mythic emotionally resonant, and gloriously alternative take on the Man of Steel."--ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
"Taking the Man of Steel back to his roots and into the future at the same time, All Star Superman is exciting, bold and supercool...all the makings of a classic"--Variety
"The most enjoyable incarnation of Superman in almost 30 years..."--THE A.V. CLUB
"The Paul McCartney/John Lennon of comics, Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely, are currently working their magic on "All Star Superman.""--NASHVILLE CITY PAPER
"Writer Grant Morrison and artist Frank Quitely might just be the best one-two punch in comics. . . . Quitely's finely detailed art s
