*Starred Review* Superman: All Star is part of a new DC line that allows leading comics creators to present their own versions of the company's classic characters without acknowledging any of the baggage the icons have acquired over the decades. Morrison, currently comics' hottest scripter, gleefully seizes the opportunity to have his way with DC's flagship character. His affection for the Superman cast shines through on every page as he homes in on their iconic demeanors--quietly noble Superman, bumbling Clark Kent, suspicious Lois Lane, boyishly enthusiastic Jimmy Olsen, and brilliantly evil Lex Luthor. He even takes some of the loonier elements of the mythos, like Krypto the Superdog and Superman's robot duplicates, and gives them a goofy grandeur. Morrison substitutes a knowing intelligence for the naivete of the earlier comics and manages to toss in some of his own trademark megaconcepts, such as the Underverse, a layer of reality whose gravity is so heavy that in it time solidifies. Meanwhile, collaborator Quitely shows that he might be the perfect comic-book artist: subtle when necessary, cartoonish when appropriate, and adroit with the action sequences. Together, writer and artist devise a Man of Steel who is both respectfully classic and excitingly contemporary. Gordon Flagg
