    Morrison and Quitely deliver a solid, entertaining and great issue of their unfortunately delayed title. But the quality of the story and the quality of the artwork really make this title worth the wait. With this title DC seems to have accomplished the general idea behind All-Star, because the team of Morrison/Quitely is and has always been All-Star. Read Full Review

    Despite my earlier complaints, this is still a very enjoyable comic, and I look forward to the next issue with great interest. Since many of Morrison's stories seem to read better when approached a second or third time (with scenes like this issue's early moment with the Sun-Eater making far more sense after their explanation further down the line), I'm confident that the writer's take on Bizarro will improve once we have the full story in our hands. All-Star Superman is arguably the pinnacle of DC's superhero line at the moment, and I'm confident that this single issue is merely a blip in what promises to be a thoroughly satisfying run from the most inspired creative team to have been applied to the character in a long time.

    This is still the best Superman comic in years, and it's still probably the best comic DC are publishing right now, and it's easily the best of the current crop of Grant Morrison comics, but compared to the pitch-perfect, exquisitely paced, brilliantly constructed previous issues, this looks positively flabby. There's a density of imagination that's just not present here, and Grant Morrison is capable of better. Read Full Review

    What does this issue of All Star Superman deliver? It's a nice, prickly take on Superman that recalls at one time or another early Silver Age Superman comics (late 1950's to early 60's), Richard Donner's Superman movies, and John Byrne's revamp of the character in the mid-1980's, which modernized the character (or even slightly pushed him into the future). This is entertaining, but probably works best for readers who regularly visit the comic shop (or regularly receive shipments of comics). Read Full Review

    The ending acts as a decent solution--that makes good use of the backward nature of the Bizarros, but the final scene just made this reader roll his eyes. Read Full Review
