Superman For All Seasons by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale © 1999, DC Comics, graphic novel
This may be the finest Superman graphic novel ever done.
I know that’s a big statement, and I realize that fans will all have their own opinions and favorite storylines in the Superman universe published by DC, but this, for me, is tops. The excellent artwork by Tim Sale perfectly compliments the fine writing of Jeph Loeb. The blurb text on the back cover isn’t overblown. Take a look (click, then scroll down to “see full size” and click on that).
This is a simple, gentle story, drawn in a classic illustrative style that works perfectly. Yes, there is conflict, and the usual Superman tropes, but the way the story is told makes every panel, every page worth the reader’s time. Wonderful!
