You should try Earth One, Red Son, Brainiac & Secret Identity.

def Superman For All Seasons, agree with Red Son and both All-Star volumes, i also found Luthor pretty good, focuses more on Lex than Superman though.

another one that's very highly praised, though i'm personally not crazy about it is Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?

My favourite it still Earth One. Followed by All Star, do check out Red Son and Secret origins as well.

The story i got my screen name from "For the man who has everything" It's Superman (Volume 1) Annual #11. Not sure if it's in any trades. Done by "The Watchmen" team of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. Superman is odd in that all his best stories come from mini/maxi series and graphic novels. I'd also recommend "Secret Identity" by Kurt Busiek and Staurt Immonen(sp?) Even though technically, that's not Superman.

@Manwhohaseverything: 'for the man who has everything' is collected in the 'whatever happened to the man of tomorrow?' trade, alongside the superman/swamp thing crossover that alan moore wrote. a good collection :)

Birthright, Red Son, For Tomorrow, Secret Origin.

Cannon or not cannon? Because most of the critically acclaim Superman stories are elsewhere's.

Kingdom Come, Red Son, What Ever Happened to the Man of Tommorow, For the Man Who Has Everything. Check out Dc Universe Storys of Alan Moore Has great ones including Superman

I'll not spoil anything, but read Red Son. Holy lord man. That is imo THE best Superman story ever. Without spoiling anything, I'll just say that Lex Luthor has never been more badass in any comic book ever.
