A satisfying finish to the volume. Each story is a bit disjointed, but then as I read on, I found that they were more connected then I originally perceived. Very nice ending to the story. ( )

Volume 1 of Morrison's and Quitely's brilliant work ranked among my top ten graphic novels of 2008, and this volume may earn the same distinction this year. Morrison concludes his imaginative, early 21st century updating of the goofy circa 1950s Superman science fiction tales as the dying hero journeys to the Bizarro Universe and discovers other Kryptonians bent on conquest. After seventy years of Man of Steel stories, Morrison and Quitely have created quite possibly the finest Superman tale of all time. ( )

The second part of Morrison and Quietly's love-letter to Superman is a bright, beautiful, colorful and deeply moving comic. Superman is dying, exposed to too much solar radiation thanks to Lex Luthor's trickery. He has twelve might tasks to perform before he dies, and to get his adopted planet ready for a world without a Superman. The strange and backward Bizarro World attacks, replacement supermen try to supplant his role, and of course Lex Luthor is waiting for his chance to strike.

This is gorgeous, epic, mad, oddly gentle in parts, and sometimes came about as damn close to moving me to tears as anything I've ever read. Morrison makes the myth of the alien who protects his world, saving it while at the same time urging us to save ourselves, into a celebration of all that's amazing about superhero comics, of the past, the present and the future, with typical Morrisonian simultaneity. Of course, there are precious few comics - or books or films or anything - as lovely as this, so get it and enjoy it and surreptitiously wipe away the odd tear of joy. ( )

Se o primeiro volume teve o seu quinhão de choque de expectativas, este segundo absolve Morrison, que ao fechar a narrativa nos devolve o Superman enquanto inexorabilidade do seu auto de fé na humanidade, sem nunca perder os traços pop típicos do imaginário em questão. Uma maravilha. ( )

(Note, this review refers to the entire run of 12 All-Star Superman issues, but Volume 2 is only issues 7-12)

This book is... weird.

All-Star Superman is something of a "reboot" intended to be self-contained, but pulling from the great history of Superman mythos. The book contains re-imagined and repurposed versions of Superman, Lois, and Luthor, as well as new versions of Bizarro, Doomsday, and, most interestingly, a completely rethought Mr. Mkzyplk (no I'm not going to bother looking up the spelling).

By pulling in so much material to work with, the book can get really damn weird sometimes. It involved characters I'm not even familiar with as a casual Superman fan, which made some of the book quite confusing. And when Superman went to Bizarro world and met Zibarro, a smart Bizarro-superman in a world of idiot Supermen, the book kind of went full retard.

This book did a lot of stuff right. Lex Luthor is fascinating and evil as all hell, as an example. My favorite thing is the overall concept; in the infamous Death and Return of Superman story arc, where Superman fought Doomsday, it was page after page of Superman and Doomsday smashing into each other. Completely brainless, and utterly missing the point of Superman dying. Superman is invincible, so having a giant monster show up and kill him was a missed opportunity to have Kal-El face his own death. All-Star Superman fixes this, as the entire arc is Superman selflessly cleaning up loose ends before what he believes to be his own death. This story is fascinating and, at times, touching. Really well done stuff. I also really enjoyed the slight nod at explaining why nobody mistakes Clark for Superman - the extremely large man wears loose-fitting suits and uses his posture to basically make himself look like a doofy fat man, and the way it's drawn completely works.

The book also did a lot wrong. First of all, Lois Lane is far, far too sexualized - almost every frame she's in has her drawn suggestively for no good reason, and it makes the entire book come off as immature. Her stint as Super-woman (don't ask) goes virtually nowhere, and fails to really explore any of the interesting points it raises. Additionally, Jimmy Olsen might be more annoying in this book than any other version of Olsen I know of, the guy is just grating.

Overall, I enjoyed the book and I think it brought a lot to the table in terms of Superman mythos. I was wary of the All-Star moniker after Frank Miller's Batman abortion, but this was worth a read and pretty enjoyable, even if it did occasionally go off the rails.

Volume 2 is a noticable improvement over Volume 1, without as much of the Lois silliness, and with the added bonus of a surprisingly deep-and thought-provoking trip to the Bizarro world. ( )
