Superman For All Seasons

written by Jeph Loeb, penciled by Tim Sale, and inked by Bjarne Hansen.

Originally issued as a four-issue limited series which each issue featuring a season both literally and metaphorically

The story follows Superman’s first year in Metropolis and visits to his beloved hometown Smallville, much like Loeb and Sale’s other stories: Batman: The Long Halloween, Spider-Man: Blue, Daredevil: Yellow, and Batman: Dark Victory. It is in Superman for All Seasons that Lex Luthor develops a hatred for Superman, and that Lana Lang begins to lose her feelings for Clark.

The first issue is narrated by Jonathan Kent, the second by Lois Lane, the third by Lex Luthor, and the final issue by Lana, thus developing four points of view on Superman and what he means.

What Loeb and Sale imply throughout the book is that Superman is from a timeless era of traditional morals and values, but he does have a place in the modern world.
