I still believe that All Star Superman is the best Superman book being published right now.  I don't know how they are doing to end this storyline, but I hope the characterizations continue somehow after this story is over.

I agree with the previous poster.  I picked this series up based on the strong response on the board, and it is awesome!  So far #5 is the favorite of the bunch.  The writing is superb, and Mr. Quitely has a great ability with facial features, which is really important with the character driven stories.  

One blurb stands out for me, when Lex was talking to Clark shortly after the riots: "I've always liked you, Kent. You're a humble, modest, uncoordinated human. You're everything HE'S not."  I couldn't help smiling over that one.

I still haven't received my issue yet. I subscribe to it, which is convenient since I do not live near a comic shop and hate the nearest one anyway. But I guess they give the shops some time first before they mail the subscriptions out.

That said, I have all of the issues so far, and this is the first comic I've ever subscribed to. It's that good.

One of the best Luthor stories I have ever read.
Only one small complaint: I never liked the fat Parasite!

The possibilites with Luthor still amaze me,this villain like the Doctor Doom have infinite stories waiting to be tell,Morrison know that and  gave us another one,and a really good one!Now with brilliant dialogue and fast action All Star for me is becoming the beacon that show to the others how Superman must be done.

I have to say, I do rather miss the "good-guy" Luthor that Maggin wrote so well: you could always identify with him, really. He was basically a good guy who'd gone off the rails a bit.

A.S.S. (uhh, let me try that again) #5 was just great stuff. The only other Superman interpretations I liked as much were Alan Moore and Denny O'Neil's.

And Quitely's is the first real Superman artist to follow Swan & Anderson.

Interestingly, Morrison seems to be thriving on the structure of self contained stories. There is a balance here and control to his work. Quitely has something to do with it, as We3 (which I wasn't excited about, but could respect) also had a well paced feel.

I don't care about puny continuity... this is Superman.
