About the Author:

Grant Morrison has been working with DC Comics for more than twenty years, beginning with his legendary runs on the revolutionary titles ANIMAL MAN and DOOM PATROL. Since then he has written numerous best-sellers — including JLA, BATMAN and New X-Men — as well as the critically acclaimed creator-owned series THE INVISIBLES, SEAGUY, THE FILTH, WE3 and JOE THE BARBARIAN. Morrison has also expanded the borders of the DC Universe in the award-winning pages of SEVEN SOLDIERS, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, FINAL CRISIS and BATMAN, INC., and he is currently reinventing the Man of Steel in the all-new ACTION COMICS.
         In his secret identity, Morrison is a “counterculture” spokesperson, a musician, an award-winning playwright and a chaos magician. He is also the author of the New York Times best-seller Supergods, a groundbreaking psycho-historic mapping of the superhero as a cultural organism. He divides his time between his homes in Los Angeles and Scotland.
Frank Quitely was born in Glasgow in 1968. Since 1988 he’s drawn The Greens (self-published), Blackheart, Missionary Man, Shimura, Inaba, ten shorts for Paradox Press, six shorts for Vertigo, FLEX MENTALLO, 20/20 VISIONS, BATMAN: THE SCOTTISH CONNECTION, THE KINGDOM: OFFSPRING, JLA: EARTH 2, THE INVISIBLES, TRANSMETROPOLITAN, THE AUTHORITY, Captain America, New X-Men, THE SANDMAN: ENDLESS NIGHTS, WE3, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN and BATMAN AND ROBIN. He has also created covers for Negative Burn, Judge Dredd Megazine, Classic 2000 AD, JONAH HEX, BOOKS OF MAGICK: LIFE DURING WARTIME, BITE CLUB, AMERICAN VIRGIN and ALL-STAR BATMAN. He lives in Glasgow with his wife and three children. He used to design his own hats and clothing. Currently his favorite hobby is cooking.

Review:

“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. Together, writer and artist devise a Man of Steel who is both respectfully classic and excitingly contemporary.” —BOOKLIST (starred review)
 
“Morrison . . .  get[s] what's fun about Superman: He's ridiculously powerful, and therefore he just sees and does and has lots of incredibly cool, totally bizarre stuff.  . .  The sky isn't even close to the limit: time machines, nanonauts, sun-eaters, a super-dense sphere of black kryptonite from the Underverse, it's all good.”—TIME MAGAZINE Best Comics of 2007
 
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 style and Morrison’s sensationally cerebral and witty storytelling have taken this simple re-imagining of Superman’s life and made it a must read series.”—METRO TORONTO, Best Ongoing Comic Book Series of 2006
 
“A quirky, fun - and poignant - throwback to classic comic-book adventures, courtesy of writer Grant Morrison and artists Frank Quitely and Jamie Grant.”— WINSTON SALEM JOURNAL
