Absolute All-Star Superman Cover

I don't really have to say much about this.  I mean, LOOK AT IT!

Absolute All-Star Superman is out in October. For an even higher resolution get to The Source.


  1. Super-Jesus!!!

  2. looks like another absolute to add 🙂

    Got my preorder in last month. Can’t wait!

  4. I knew I should of waited…but those two reduce priced hardcovers became too tempting.

  5. I bet it took Quintely two months to draw this.

  6. Glad I waited. Er, am still waiting.

  7. That bit of cape between the legs is weird on my eyes. But everything else is teh awesome.

  8. can i get that image on one of those Mexican glass prayer candles? =p


  9. That’s great !!

  10. Looks like I’m gonna be out 100 dollars in october.

  11. In general not a fan of the format (impossible to read, delicate, feels more like an art object than a book) but this just shot to the top of my pile of books to buy. I have issue 10 framed page by page hanging from my wall.

  12. of recent, this is most deserving of the Absolute treatment


  13. I pre ordered mine the day Amazon offered it up. I can’t wait.

  14. That’s beautiful!

  15. Appropriate cover considering that All-Star Superman is clearly a superheroic adaptation of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.

  16. Me wantee!!

  17. Yeah, that’s ugly and not at all awesome!

    Yay for positive sarcasm!

  18. Ooooohhh! Pretty!

  19. Yeah, I’ve had this pre-ordered since it was announced. This is just icing on the cake.

  20. Oh thank god! Life can go on!!!

    I’m sorry, I should keep stuff like this to myself. I’m sure it will be a big, beautiful collection. And admittedly, that is a great image for the cover. But I was enjoying the schadenfreude of watching fanboys suffer while DC deprived them of this gem.

  21. I’ve got 2 beautiful hardcovers, and I’m cool with them.

  22. Paul Montgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

    I lent the first hardcover to a friend years ago and I’ve intentionally not asked after it in the hopes of this collection (never did get the second volume). 

  23. WOWWWWWWWWWW! I’ve got both hardcovers but this cover is NEARLY enough to make me want the absolute version. Morrison is responsible for keeping my love of Superman alive.

  24. I already have the hardcovers, but that is a very gorgeous image.  I may re-read these soon.

  25. I want to go to there!

  26. @WinTheWonderBoy


    my thoughts exactly! 

  27. Another one for the must buy pile – *sigh*

  28. Already have the hardcovers but this is a story that deserves the double-dip.

  29. I just got chills looking at the cover………..

  30. must have.

  31. A few issues into this story, I just knew this had to be Absoluted. Between this, the Johns/Frank stories, What Ever Happened… and the ONLY A+ thing Millar has ever done (Red Son) my library feels complete of the only Superman stories I’ll ever care to read again. I’m dying to see the extras.

  32. @WinTheWonderboy: Meh, I’ll wait for the variant where he’s crucified.

  33. Now I know what I’m buying myself for Christmas.

  34. I nominate JLA: Year One for Absolute!

    Cover looks awesome, BTW. Sort of thing you can display and ask advice from.

  35. Incredible, evocative, mind blowing art!! Amazing in that it almost makes you feel an emotion when looking at it. Quitely brought his A-game on this one.

  36. Hello, new Golden Calf!

  37. I…I love you, Frank Quitely…
