    Short summary describing this volume.

    The early days of Clark Kent discovering his abilities as Superman is told over the course of four seasons.

    Writer Jeph Loeb and artist Tim Sale had achieved comic-book superstardom with their acclaimed mini-series, Batman: The Long Halloween and its precursor Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight one-shot Halloween specials. So when they decided to lend their particular talents to the Man of Steel's early years, the resulting effort was a smash hit. Complemented by the beautiful pastel hues of colorist Bjarne Hansen, this four issue prestige format series was a bright counterpoint to Loeb and Sale's noir Batman collaborations.

    As each volume centred on a different season, fans were treated to a glimpse into the young life of Clark Kent as he developed his powers and made the momentous decision to move from Smallville, Kansas to the big city of Metropolis. In "Spring" Clark explored the picturesque Norman Rockwell setting of Smallville with his high-school sweetheart Lana Lang. As his powers developed, simple, mundane chores like having a haircut turned into near impossible feats. After proving his abilities in a tornado, Clark decided to put his powers to good use and moved to Metropolis to adopt the identity of Superman. By "Summer" Superman was a Metropolis fixture, attracting the attention of beautiful Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane, as well as corrupt business mogul Lex Luthor. As "Fall" rolled around, Metropolis fell victim to a virus, forcing Clark to retreat to Smallville, defeated and blaming himself for the viral attack. However, after once again proving his worth in his hometown, Clark returned to the big city, confident that the world truly needed a Superman.

    For All Seasons served as a bold coming-of-age tale, and delved into the often-overlooked human side of the most powerful of all super-beings.
