Read in July, 2011

It took months for me to come across the concluding volume of this series, and I was not disappointed. Morrison lives up to Mark Waid's hype and has produced what may be the finest Superman story ever penned. The clever premise is stretched in order to make more modern sense of some of the sillier aspects of Superman lore, and the tale ends ingeniously with hope and the possibility for a sequel. Frank Quitely was new to me before reading this series, and I am also in agreement with Waid about his being the perfect super hero artist. He has tremendous design skills, an unbelievably elegant line, the details are astonishing, and he knows how to amplify the emotional elements of the story by displaying seriousness when called for and a very cartoony style when levity is needed. I can't help but heap praise on Morrison for his genius in creating one of the great masterpieces of comics.
