    Whilst not the most exciting or flashy issue of All-Star Superman, this is another straightforward story, elegantly told, which tips its hat to the conventions of Silver Age comics whilst still managing to be sophisticated enough to be enjoyed by a modern audience. Morrison's ideas are sufficiently simple that they can be easily understood on a first read, but further perusal reveals layers of depth and invention which will reward more perceptive readers, and Quitely's art is gorgeous stuff. If you're not reading this book, you should be. Read Full Review

    All Star Superman #8 was well written, but it was simply far too slow and uneventful for my taste. Morrison gives us a great version of Bizarro Earth, but this issue simply drags and brings this momentum of this title to a halt. Hopefully, Morrison will pick up the pace and excitement a bit with the next issue. Read Full Review

    If you like Bizarro, this is the All-Star Superman issue for you. You'll be in heaven. If you dislike or don't care about Bizarro, the issue of All-Star Superman is a passable time-waster. Read Full Review

    As a Bizarro story, it was boring and lacking. As a Superman story (especially one claiming to be All-Star), it felt to me that it had destroyed the essential parts of what I love about Superman to make what felt like one big joke. A big joke that failed. Once again, I will drop this book, shake my head, and go read good Superman comics. Read Full Review
