More about All-Star

In preparation for the final revision of my book about Superman, I've been getting back to reading about him. In the process, I found a couple of links that are worth saving:

First, a lengthy discussion about Morrison/Quitely/Grant's All-Star series. There's a lot of stuff worth reading here, though perhaps the most worthwhile portion is the material about Superman as a Marxist hero.

Second--and linked to in the above article--is a strip written and drawn by Paul Chadwick, about Superman and someone stranded in a car. I might have to track down the original.

From Chadwick's "Ex Machina" in Christmas with the Super-Heroes #2 (1989)

Possibly penultimate post

Well, this blog has served its purpose. My Superman research is pretty much done (or it will never be done--either way, I've done what I needed with this blog). I've decided to continue blogging, but at a new site: Rootbeer and Typewriters. Check it out if you get the chance. I'll probably get back to writing things like Better than the Book, Best Stories in the World, and Quotations. I might even repost a few things from here.

That said, there may be one or two more posts here in the future. Update posts. You never know.
