All good things must come to an end

Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely's run on "All Star Superman" ended yesterday with the release of 12 issue. This series does for Superman what Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" did for Batman - it shows everyone how the character should be done while telling a great final adventure story.

This series was the first time I've read comics that felt like instant classics, not as a result of some gimmick or stunt, but based on the power of the storytelling alone.

Thanks, Grant. Thanks, Frank.

Well done.
