Supermen & Beef Jerky

Have you ever loved something so much that you just wanted to shout about it to everyone you know, love or just happen to pass while walking down the street? Or shout incoherent praises about it out your car window to pedestrians and shrubbery? Well, friends, that's All-Star Superman for me.

Now, I've already bored you to tears ranting about how glorious Nextwave is (and it is glorious) so I'll keep this one brief and simply say that I love All-Star Superman more than I love beef jerky.

And I loves me some beef jerky.

Writing by Grant Morrison. Art by Frank Quitely. They are unstoppable. It's everything great about the Big Blue Boy Scout wrapped tightly around a nutty nougat center. This is a Superman for the 21st century and beyond.

So there you have it. All-Star Superman: better than beef jerky.



Also, Seaguy is the bizz-omb.

That is all.

I haven't heard of that version of Superman. I'll have to check it out...

It's a new line DC is launching, letting top shelf creators work on books that are designed to be untethered from the stringent continuity of the "normal DC universe." I kid you not when I tell you that it rocks my socks off. Repeatedly. Morrison is one cool cat. Probably too smart to be writing books about guys with their underwear on outside their clothes, but don't tell him that because man, this stuff is good. His frequent collaborator, Quitely, is just sick-good and as slick (in a good way) as can be. If you can find a comic book store that isn't too scary-looking (good luck, though Mile High comics is somewhere there and I've heard good things), I would definitely encourage tracking it down. Anyway, enough shouting. - rdt
