Rsonal shortcomings Lois Lane the dynamic investigative reporter who reminds you that there are enigmas in life that baffle even SupermanYou've seen it before Now see it again as though for the first time Not an origin story modernizatio 55 stars Introduction 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 reason why I have not read that many “Superman” comics was not because I hate Superman I actually really like his character but it was hard for me to look for some recommendations for good “Superman” stories while recommendations for good “Batman” stories came much readily One of the “Superman” stories that was always highly recommended to me was Grant Morrison’s run on “Superman” called “All Star Superman” At first I was a bit hesitant about checking this series out because from what I had heard from some comic book fans Grant Morrison’s works tend to jump off the deep end at a certain point in his stories and I had experienced that with his work on “Batman RIP” However after I finally decided to dive into this graphic novel I now see why this particular graphic novel was so highly recommended to me and I have to say that “All Star Superman Volume One” is one of the best “Superman” stories I had ever read What is this story about? The story starts off with Superman going to the sun to rescue a space crew who were on a mission to take fire from the sun and it turns out that because Superman went too near the sun he contracted apoptosis death of the body cells which means that he will soon die When Superman finds this out he decides that he must do some things on Earth before he dies such as temporarily giving his love interest Lois Lane superpowers for her birthday and trying to confess his secret identity to her getting in a fight with Jimmy Olsen due to being affected by Black Kryptonite meeting up with his nemesis Lex Luthor and saying his goodbyes to his father Jonathan Kent Will Superman have time to do all of these things before he dies?Read this graphic novel to find out What I loved about this story Grant Morrison’s writing I really enjoyed Grant Morrison’s writing in this graphic novel as the story has a nice mixture of drama and humor thrown in and I often found myself laughing at some of the situations in this volume such as Superman and Lois’ encounter with the comical superhero duo Samson and Atlas I also like the fact that this story tackles the subject about what would happen if Superman is about to die and how he would spend his last days on Earth although the concept about Superman dying is nothing new at this point This gives Grant Morrison a chance to explore Superman’s life from his arrival to Earth and being adopted by Jonathan and Martha Kent to working in the Daily Planet and meeting Lois Lane and there is a great love to the character as not only do older readers get to see Superman’s life be presented again in this volume but new readers will be able to understand about Superman’s origins through a modern interpretation I also enjoyed the way that Grant Morrison portrayed Superman in this volume as Superman is not shown as being a flat character but has many dimensions to his personality as we get to see Superman become sad happy angry and humorous all at once in this volume; it was fantastic seeing the various emotions that Superman displays in this volume contribute to the story at handFrank uitely’s artwork While there are some parts of Frank uitely’s artwork that annoyed me a bit which I will discuss about in the cons section overall the artwork is extremely detailed and gorgeous to look at Probably my most favorite image in this graphic novel was the image of Superman and Lois Lane kissing each other on the moon and you can see the gorgeous detail being done to Lois’ wavy hair as it is waving around in space What made me feel uncomfortable about this story The only problem I have with this graphic novel is that there are so many things happening in the story that it would make it pretty confusing for anyone who is not used to reading “Superman” comics Even though I found this graphic novel to be pretty entertaining the narrative can get overcrowded at times because there are so many events going on and you have to read each issue a bit carefully to get the full details of each of the stories Also some of the artwork can be a bit off at times especially with the way that Superman’s face seems to look like dough in some panels and I felt that he was drawn a bit too bulky in this volume despite the fact that Superman is naturally muscular Final Thoughts Overall “All Star Superman Volume One” is seriously one fantastic and hilarious volume that I would love to read over and over again if I get the chance to and I cannot wait to read the second volume of this seriesReview is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog

All Star Superman Volume 1From the inside jacketThe last son of the doomed planet Krypton rocketed to Earth A sci fi savior raised in America's heartland; embracing and embraced by what's best in humanity Lex Luthor the criminal mastermind misguided by his own pe 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 way I've learned to live with and I don't feel the need for non comics fans or non superhero fans to 'get it' because so many other people obviously already doBut If say you were getting into comics but you were getting into them as an adult say and you were trying to walk that fine line that all us comic fans walk of enjoying the goofy weirdness that comics can bring without falling into the depressing trench of Those People Who Read Comics if basically you were trying to find that magic line where the Good meets the Terrible and TranscendsWell at some point or another you'd probably ask yourself what the hell superhero comics were all about and if there were any part of you that could ever appreciate them both unironically and without becoming one of Those People Who Read ComicsAnd probably if you had friends like me who read a lot of comics and sort of openly wished they could make you see what was beautiful about them even superhero comicsIt would be folly to recommend Batman to you Because Batman isn't about superhero comics Batman is about loving Batman and while there is a rich dark world that lies within you wouldn't really have that amazing staring at the universe moment that superhero comics can through their ham fisted hopefulness let bloom within youIt would be eually folly to recommend Watchmen or Zot or Starman or Powersor Astro City or any of the other post modern superhero fare that gets offered up as gateway comics for the uninitiated like it makes any sense at all to foster the incredulous joy of superhero comics through an analytical back door in which the mechanics of how the genre works are stripped and enjoyed at best as meta fiction The aforementioned works are all brilliant in their own rights no doubt But that is not what superhero comics are about These books are the works of people attempting to recover from the intense brain blasting heartbreak of pure emotion that superhero comics instilled in them when they were too young to know any better These books are intellectualized post mortems done on innocenceAnd yes in a way if you are entering into comics as an adult there will always be something you missed out on There will always be a strange confusion in you when you see a lifelong reader's eyes glaze over with shy happiness at the sight of a single issue of Fight Man Fights Gigantor in X World #685 You both know that what lies within those pages will be silly and underwhelming and embarrassing and basebut the lifelong reader knows and importantly feels that a secret joy still lives here and can't be washed away by ageBut throwing that hopelessness aside let's assume that you still demanded to know just what this fuss was all about Let's say you insisted that the child in you could still be touched by something unabashedly resplendent even if it was a decade or two too lateI'd say thisI'd say Look a few years ago a writer and an artist who you've never heard of but who are really famous in comics a few years ago they teamed up and they made a Superman book And you don't have to think Superman is cool because I don't think he's very cool And you really don't have to know anything about it but it's not going to feel dated or stilted or any of those things that turn you off except when it does so in very charming ways And it's short only a couple paperbacksAnd this book I mean I don't want to spoil it for you by explaining it But this book I think will help you get itThat is what I would say to you That is what I would say
