Okay, other than Frank Quitely giving Supes the physique of a championship bowler, this book wasn’t bad. It certainly was NOT the loathsome, Batman persona-raping shit bomb that All-Star Batman & Robin the Boy Wonder, Volume 1 was (I still haven’t forgiven you for that Frank Miller). I think...

Despite the fact that I read a lot of comics -- and I do read a lot of comics -- I don't read a lot of superhero comics. Which isn't true at all, because I read a lot of superhero comics; it's just that almost all the superhero comics I read are Batman. I am absolutely obsessed with Batman in a w...

This is what I would recommend to someone who is not a fan of Superman. Morrison manages to take all of the things that make Superman such an iconic character, and turn it into a great story.

Dear Grant Morrison,
It's not you, it's me. I should have known better. I've never been a big fan of Superman. We both know that I'm much more of a Batman sort of girl. I can't think of a single Superman book that I've loved. I probably should have left well enough alone. But I was curious, and an...

Now, I have a little confession to make (I seem to be making so many book confessions lately, right)? I had only read a few “Superman” comics over the years, which included “Superman: Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow” and “Superman: Secret Identity.” The reas...

I've had this Comic for *ages* without reading it-& I should've read it sooner, as it's really good. :)
The storylines for each episode are all different, yet often interlinking & all of the usual suspects in terms of characters are in it.
The artworks nice-Retro mixed with modern with a g...

Look! Superman playing super-fetch with his super-dog! Aw!
Hey, guys. Guess what I read yesterday? Superman. Isn't that weird?
Well, it was "Buy 1 Graphic Novel, Get 1 For $1" Day @ my work. And I had stocked up on the latest volumes of the three series that I am currently in the middle of (Fables...

I keep wanting to like Superman, to find those epic stories that boil him down to the essentials and show why people love him so much. All-Star Superman was one recommended to me, and I came away with nothing but meh.
Most of this feels so over the top and hokey (Black kryptonite? Jimmy Olsen wha...

Morrison is a great comic book writer, but he has a few obvious flaws that can make his work difficult to digest, and have always kept him from reaching the same heights as Alan Moore.
All-Star Superman, while using the same deconstructed narrative and mind-blowingly bizarre gift of invention that...

How do I rave without giving everything away or repeating what others have already said? This is Morrison at his best and most focused. It's still out there, sometimes "cerebral," funny, wacky. But it's mostly charming, classic, and true. This is how I think about Superman, omnipotent yet vulnera...
