All-Star Superman - *Spoilers* Superman absorbs too much energy which has a terminal effect. This is supposed to be a classic, but I'm afraid it falls flat. Some of the concepts in this are wonderful. Following Clark being a scientist and his morality was an interesting take on the character. However, the story seems to miss some basic character tropes. For example, Lois Lane gets superpowers for 24 hours yet spends her time flirting and watching men have an arm wrestling competition? What's all that about? What happened to the intelligent and charming version of her character? It was just disappointing and actually a bit frustrating to read.
Artwork - I didn't like it. Wish I did as Frank Quitely is an amazing artist, but I just couldn't get into the style. In particular, I wasn't a fan of how Superman was drawn which isn't ideal. However, the cover with Superman sitting on the cloud which is awesome.
Rating - 2.5/5
