I’m sure someone’s mentioned this already but I can’t find the thread it’s in:
I posted something on Saturday on the Facts and Factoids thread. Great photo!
The Warren Ellis doc Captured Ghosts is now on Youtube:
Opinions please. Where does Allstar Superman 1-12 rank compared to the following?

Manhunter Special Edition - Detective Comics 437-443 (1974) + Manhunter 1 (1984) + Batman LOTDK 100 (1997) - Goodwin & Simonson
Stormwatch 37-50 (1996) + 1-11 (1997) + WildC.A.T.S./Aliens (1998) - Ellis & Raney/Hitch/Jiminez/Ryan/Sprouse
Of those that I’ve read, I’d say above all of them.
Which will probably mean it’s bottom of your list.
All-Star Superman is, I think, my favourite comic. So yeah, put it straight to number one.
Are you looking for people to unfriend?
I can only compare it with Grandville, but I’m not sure a comparison is meaningful, it’s like apples and oranges.
If pushed, I would say that moments from All-Star outshine anything in Grandville, but Grandville is the more consistent overall work.
I try and apply the, ‘going out the door’ test. I’m leaving the house and meeting a friend who might be late. What do I take with me? Or more simply, ‘what would i rather read again?’
Well, at least they didn’t use the words “Biff”and “Pow” in the headline.
Oh, oh, oh … that’s awfully enticing …
