Death of Su­per­man

Comic Heroes - - Feature -

Su­per­man #75, Jan­uary 1993

Why was it shock­ing? The ul­tra-con­ser­va­tive DC cre­ative team played ev­ery­thing ex­actly as ex­pected but it sold in a way no­body’d pre­dicted, and laid the ground­work for a ques­tion­able fu­ture – soon Bat­man’s back would shat­ter, Spi­der-Man would be a clone, and event sto­ry­lines would rule.
