A fantastic view of the Golden/Silver age sensibility of comics, less the goofiness but with a heaping of moral and political conflict. LOVE Darwyn Cook. If you buy one absolute, make it this of Absolute All-Star Superman. This is what the format was made for.

I bought it because I had seen the dvd of the New Frontier, and wanted to read the story, I've always been a big fan of Darwyn Cooke's art style and the Absolute edition magnifies it's perfection tenfold, seriously recommend picking it up, it looks good on any shelf even a coffee table.

This book is amazing on so many different levels.
First thing is the art by the living legend Darwyn Cooke who's style just takes you back to the 'feeling' of being a child again even though there is considerable violence in this book.
The villain in the book is also a very welcome surprise not to mention the way the story builds, the turns, and the overall structure from start to finish.

It is a book that deserves and requires multiple reads, and with its gigantic size it just feels like reading comics in HD.
If you have a the money or are looking for a present for someone with slightly sophisticated superhero tastes, I highly recommend this book.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Arthur Hattrick on Nov. 9 2007
Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful re-telling of the 1950s/1960s DC universe with an excellent feel for characterization, as well as the time period. Even if Darwyn Cooke wasn't one of my favorite artists and writers, I would whole-heartedly recommend this beautifully produced edition (with additional material and an oversized, slip-cased format). The only improvement that I could suggest would be additional (artistic and historical) annotations/footnotes by Mr. Cooke. If you are interested in other excellent DC titles by Darwyn Cooke check out: Will Eisner's The Spirit, Batman: Ego & Other Tails, and Catwoman: Selina's Big Score.

P.S . If Mr. Cooke should ever happen to read this, may I suggest he consider doing a "noir" detective graphic novel featuring Slam Bradley.
