All Star Superman

February 12, 2011 by Post Team 

All Star Superman, All Star Superman is a series of twelve-issue comic book featuring Superman, which was in November 2005 to October 2008. Grant Morrison, drawn by Frank Quitely, digitally signed by Jamie Grant and published by DC Comics, wrote the series. DC argues that this series would “strip the man of steel to his timeless, essential elements.”

The series was the second to be launched in 2005 under DC’s All Star imprint, the first being All the Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder Star. These series are attempts by DC to allow major comics creators a chance to tell stories featuring these characters without being restricted by DC Universe continuity.

Grant Morrison’s approach to writing this series was to make reading as universal as possible. He said he was not interested in “re-do stories about the origin or unpacking conventional narratives,” but rather wanted to make “a complete overhaul, and reassemble rehaul.” However, rather than simply creating a “new and relevant” updated for new readers, Morrison wanted to write a “collection of” Timeless “Superman issues.” The origins of this lie in an overhaul of Superman, Superman now, which began when Morrison and editor Chief Dan Raspler were unsuccessfully to brainstorm ideas for a new look at the character outside the San Diego Comic Con, when they had a “shamanic” encounter with a man dressed as Superman, who helped trigger the creative process and inspiration for the cover of the first question:

“It was perched on one knee drawn up, chin resting on his arm. He looked totally relaxed … and I suddenly realized this was how Superman would sit. It would not eat or breast heroic posture, it would be totally chilled if nothing can hurt you, you can afford to be cool a man like Superman would never have to tense against the cold. Never to retreat in the face of a sudden it would be quite relaxed, not tense. With this image of Superman relaxing on a cloud watching us all in my head, I rushed to my hotel room and dozens of pages filled with my notebook and drawings. ”
The ideas generated by this meeting have been refined and pitched to DC in 1998 by Morrison, Mark Millar, Mark Waid and Tom Peyer. They picked up on the cycle of fifteen years of restarts of nature, the last being John Byrne, The Man of Steel, and suggested a new approach:

Relaunching Superman we sell dollars tend to sweep the work done by those who came immediately before. Unlike consolidates all too common in the current comics’ cosmic reset “approach of our new Superman is an honest attempt to synthesize the best of all previous eras. Our intention is to honor each of the various interpretations of Superman and use the internal logic of history that our launching pad for a re-imagined, streamlined Century Man 21 in steel. The notion of “cosmic reset” has been replaced by a policy of “understanding and transcend” approach to continuity past.
Our intention is to restore Superman to its preeminent place as the greatest superhero of all

Although at first the green light, he was finally dismissed and Morrison said: “I do not expect to do further work on Superman, but the chance came as he was finishing his run on New X -Men. In an interview with Matt Brady from Newsarama, Grant Morrison said he was contacted by DC Vice President Dan DiDio and asked “if I want to go back to DC to work on a project with an artist of Superman my choice. “He said it worked well because it was also intended to return to DC” for the project Seven Soldiers and the Vertigo books.

Morrison confirmed that he has used some of his ideas now Superman for All Star Superman, as the “moment of breathtaking Luthor understanding” as well as the development of its initial proposal for elements later included a scenario in CD dollars.

In his writing of the character of Superman, Morrison identifies the different aspects of his personality, stating, “Superman” is an act of “Clark Kent in Metropolis is also an act there are actually two Kents, at least -. It is a disguise, a buzzing, annoying mask for Superman. The other is trust, strong, good heart Clark Kent, who was raised by his surrogate mother Ma and Pa in Kansas and knows how to drive a tractor. I think is more “real” free. ”

The first issue was released in November 2005 and was a sales success in the second rank in the top 300 comics for the period, with Infinite Crisis # 2 being the best seller. The second issue was also ranked second in the top 300 comics for the period 2006 January, with sales of 124 pre-order 328 Infinite Crisis # 4 being the best seller this month. The series ended its run when publishing its last issue in October 2008.

Jeremy Estes, an examiner at the beginning of PopMatters, notes the difficulty of reorganizing the Superman character in its review of the first episode of the series. However, continuity All Star allows the writer Grant Morrison a lot more freedom to write. Frank Quitely art is hailed as “fresh and modern,” while “evoking the classic hero known throughout the world.” At the time of writing. That the first issue was released, and Estes was so unsure of the direction of history, noting the creative team “have developed a promising story, but only time will tell if they take the last train to Memphis or head west all the way to Vegas”.

Nicolas Labarre, posted Sequart, argued that all Star Superman “trust operates the near omnipotence of the main character,” unlike other stories of Superman. He compared favorably with other series work of Morrison.

Ed Mathews PopImage considered the trade paperback first collected, who collects the first six issues, and commended the creative team, indicating the art is “one of the most elegant work of Frank Quitely I saw to date. “Mathews also distinguished by Grant Morrison, saying that the series adds to the mythology Superman” by tweaking bits and pieces of the rich history of the character just enough so that the old concepts fresh again. “He Volume 1 recommended for all editions, and said, “All Star Superman sings a success.”

Another review of Volume 1 came from Danny Graydon’s first message, which said that the writing of Grant Morrison is “the most vigorously entertaining take on the Man of Steel” for decades “and that” the work of Art is qualified to be savored. ”

Lev Grossman, Time magazine ranked the third top 10 graphic novel Graphic Novels of 2007. He welcomed the story, noting that because of the strength of character and morality, it is a difficult character to write.
