"Man, the All Star Superman #1 cover was brilliant. When everything on the shelves is showing dudes in tights punching their allies for no reason, and most Superman writers are trying to find some way for a friend to betray him so he can “lose it” and “cross the line” and flip on his heat vision eyes just to look tough, Morrison and Quitely’s cover breaks all that nonsense with an engaging swerve. Not for nothing, but it’s the same reason my most well-known drawing is of Supergirl serenely floating backwards in the sky with her eyes closed. When everything is loud, a whisper breaks through."
