I like For All Seasons, but Superman extends for over half a century so there's a lot that you might like or might not like depending on your taste. Do you like the goofy silver-age stuff?

The best Superman comics are the limited series or events.
Don't even try to make sense of the overall continuity.

All-Star Superman
Superman Red Son
Superman Unchained (kinda meh IMO)
Kingdom Come (features loads of DC characters but Supes is at the center of the story)
Death of Superman
For the man who has everything

i dont know why people keep suggesting Superman Red Son. Now im no comic veteran, but i wanted to get a glimpse of what the best of superman comics had to offer. i thought the story was full of plotholes and inconsistent in many ways. Thanks to the death of communism, we have as a race reached new heights. Its just american masturbatory material really.

It's just a fun what-if story where familiar characters take on different roles. Superman is the most uninteresting main character in the story, Lex Luthor takes the center stage as the hero for once.

Not even sure what you're trying to say here, I guess you grew up during the red scare or something?

Throwing in Alan Moore's Whatever Happened To The Man of Tomorrow, Max Landis' (trust me pls) American Alien and Joe Kelly's What's So Funny About Truth Justice & The American Way to the above list. Granted i haven't actually read the latter, just seen the animated adaptation, but it felt like a great Superman story thematically.
Come to think of it, guest appearances in solo issues of other series might make for some of the best Superman stories. Since they can treat him like the paragon he is. I recommend the final issue of All-Star Section 8. It's by notorious cape-hating edgemeister Garth Ennis, yet he apparently has a soft spot for Supes and consistently portrays him rather flatteringly whenever he gets the chance. Each issue features a different DC hero/trope that gets mercilessly riffed-on and satirized. Except for the final issue, where Supes shows up, and is portrayed with utmost serenity & respect.
Section 8 is a long-time-coming sequel to Ennis & his artist buddy's mid-90s DC comic Hitman, which also takes the everloving piss out of superheroes as a concept except for one Superman issue that's genuinely heartfelt. Recommend that too, tho I can't remember the issue number. Google "Ennis Hitman Superman". Also I recently found some kinda animal-charity inter-promotional one-shot DC did in the 90s written by Ennis' fellow infamous edgemancer Mark Millar. Who ALSO tells a really kind, uncharacteristic, inspirational Supes story. These 2 writers have written comics where pedophilic serial killers win and bulldogs rape small Indian boys yet there's something about this one character that brings out the best in them as people.
