Time running against the Man of Steel. After a diabolical plot by his arch-foe Lex Luthor puts him on the brink of death, Superman must tie up loose ends and make sure that he leaves the Earth better than he found it. The unstoppable creative team of writer Grant Morrison and artist Frank Quitely join forces once more to take Superman back to basics. In an emotionally and visually stunning graphic novel harkening back to a Golden Age of comics, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN creates a new, and at the same time familiar, take on the world's first superhero. This now-classic graphic novel features Superman's renowned supporting cast, including Jimmy Olsen, Lois Lane, Bizarro, Perry White and of course, his greatest foe Lex Luthor. This volume collects issues #1-12. DC Black Label, a new publishing imprint from DC Entertainment, gives premier talent the opportunity to expand upon the canon of DC's iconic Super Hero comic book characters with unique, standalone stories that are outside of the current DC Universe continuity. An all-star lineup of creative teams will craft their own personal definitive DC stories in the tradition of compelling literary works like Batman: The Killing Joke, DC: The New Frontier and Kingdom Come.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Grant Morrison is one of the deftest superhero-comics writers of the moment, ... His collaboration with the artists Frank Quitely and Jamie Grant, is full of mad, cartwheeling invention and airy open spaces.... Clever." --New York Times, Book Review

"[Morrison's] affection for the Superman cast shines through on every page as he homes in on their iconic demeanors--quietly noble Superman, bumbling Clark Kent, suspicious Lois Lane, boyishly enthusiastic Jimmy Olsen, and brilliantly evil Lex Luthor ... Meanwhile, collaborator Quitely shows that he might be the perfect comic book artist: subtle when necessary, cartoonish when appropriate, and adroit with the action sequences. Together, writer and artist devise a Man of Steel who is both respectfully classic and excitingly contemporary." --Booklist (starred review)

"Morrison . . . get[s] what's fun about Superman: He's ridiculously powerful, and therefore he just sees and does and has lots of incredibly cool, totally bizarre stuff. . . The sky isn't even close to the limit: time machines, nanonauts, sun-eaters, a super-dense sphere of black kryptonite from the Underverse, it's all good."--Time Magazine Best Comics of 2007

"A stirringly mythic emotionally resonant, and gloriously alternative take on the Man of Steel." --Entertainment Weekly

"Taking the Man of Steel back to his roots and into the future at the same time, All Star Superman is exciting, bold and supercool...all the makings of a classic" --Variety

"The most enjoyable incarnation of Superman in almost 30 years..." --A.V. Club

"Writer Grant Morrison and artist Frank Quitely might just be the best one-two punch in comics. . . . Quitely's finely detailed art style and Morrison's sensationally cerebral and witty storytelling have taken this simple re-imagining of Superman's life and made it a must read series." --Metro Toronto, Best Ongoing Comic Book Series of 2006
