Herme tells me to stay away from All Star Batman & Robin, what do you think STK? Or AS Superman for that matter.
All-Star Batman is really love it or hate it. I hate it. It's Frank Miller's second 'fuck you' to the comic industry (the first being DK2 a few years ago). Jim Lee does some good work, but the story goes nowhere and the characters are big nothings. I'll check it out when they do a trade paperback; maybe it reads better all together.
I like All-Star Superman, but I don't think that would be for everyone, either. Its main draw is the bizarre, drug induced concepts by Morrison and a Superman who is way too powerful, like he was back in the Silver Age.
Also, they say Daredevil is better now than it has been in years. What's so good about it?
The story and art. The book starts from where the last writer (Bendis) left it, with Daredevil's identity having been revealed, and Daredevil being in Ryker's awaiting trial (maneuvered there by a Fed who hates him). Even though he's continued lying and claiming not to be Daredevil (which nobody believes), and even though he actually is a blind man (which nobody believes), he's put into general population with a bunch of people who want to kill him, like Kingpin, the Owl, and Hammerhead. When one of Daredevil's friends is fatally stabbed after a prison visit, Matt Murdock starts to lose it.
Lots of prison violence ensues, and Daredevil slides closer to not caring what happens to him anymore. Reading about it in the papers, Punisher purposely kills a pimp in front of some cops so he can get himself sent in there as well, and watch Murdock's meltdown. Oh yeah, and Bullseye gets transferred back to Ryker's also, all strapped into a Hannibal Lecter restraint thing. Finally, in the newest issue (part five of the story), a prison-wide riot has erupted. Next issue concludes the story.
The art is by Michael Lark, who previously had done the excellent 'Gotham Central' and some of the flashback sequences in the new Captain America series. You just have to see it here to believe it. The combination of him and colorist D'Armata is amazing.
