    This series is shaping up to be the greatest Superman arc of all time, and the sixth issue is just one more piece in a puzzle that looks to eventually be greater than the sum of its parts. Read Full Review

    Frank Quitelys art is fantastic. Theres really no other way to put it. Quitely has always been able to match Grant Morrisons writing; the action, the environment, everything about the art really makes it feel like Superman. While one of the Supermen of the future has a striking resemblance to Clark, it wasnt until after their true identities were revealed that I noticed how similar they looked. Quitely is quickly becoming one of my favorite Superman artists solely because of his work on this title. Read Full Review

    Issue #6 is a quintessential Superman story that explores the more human side of the character, and his roots that help make him the ultimate hero. This creative team understands the core of Superman better than I would have imagined, and I cant wait to read more from them. If you havent picked up this title yet, youre missing out.

    All-Star Superman already seems destined to go down as a classic, and it has joined the very slim ranks of those constantly-late titles that are actually worth the long wait between issues. It's a book which revels in its mysteries but doesn't rely on them to make itself interesting, and manages to tell a complete story each issue whilst adding to the overall picture via some sly references and links to events in previous instalments. It's a book in which the ideas are so involving that they're even more of a draw than the spectacle, and which is so rampantly imaginative that you hardly have time to appreciate one high concept before another one gets thrown at you. It's a book in which the script and artwork are each operating at such a high level that it's almost as though the creators are constantly challenging each other to go one better, and that's the kind of competition that can only be a good thing for the book's readership. The only reason that this issue doesn't warrant a Read Full Review

    All Star Superman #6 is another great read. Morrison and Quitely have done a wonderful job on this title. You know that you are always going to get a good solid read when you pick up the newest issue of All Star Superman. And I'm not even that big of a Superman fan! I definitely recommend this title. Unless you only enjoy grim, gritty and dark titles, I think you will find All Star Superman to be a blast to read. Read Full Review
