“Grant Morrison is one of the deftest superhero-comics writers of the moment, . . .  His collaboration with the artists Frank Quitely and Jamie Grant, is full of mad, cartwheeling invention and airy open spaces…. Clever.”—NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

“[Morrison’s] 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. . . . .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.” —BOOKLIST (starred review)
“Morrison . . .  get[s] what's fun about Superman: He's ridiculously powerful, and therefore he just sees and does and has lots of incredibly cool, totally bizarre stuff.  . .  The sky isn't even close to the limit: time machines, nanonauts, sun-eaters, a super-dense sphere of black kryptonite from the Underverse, it's all good.”—TIME MAGAZINE Best Comics of 2007

“Writer Grant Morrison and artist Frank Quitely might just be the best one-two punch in comics. . . . Quitely’s finely detailed art style and Morrison’s sensationally cerebral and witty storytelling have taken this simple re-imagining of Superman’s life and made it a must read series.”—METRO TORONTO, Best Ongoing Comic Book Series of 2006
