From Benjamin Birdie via CBR : Morrison and Quitely told what is in many ways the ultimate Superman story. It shows us what he stands for in every moral degree. It shows us the world he fights for in every level of detail. It is an exacting, inspiring, and poignant accomplishment in the realm of Superhero comics. Almost fable-like in its directness and simplicity at times, but as emotionally in depth as any contemporary work of literary fiction. “All Star Superman” is, in its primary intent, “just” a Superhero comic. But like its subject, it has landed in a medium not completely prepared for how remarkable it could be, and thus has irrevocably changed it for the better.
