PREVIOUSLY: SUPERMAN: AMERICAN ALIEN #5

Max Landis continues his rewrite of Superman’s origin. It’s a year since the previous issue, with Clark firmly established in his duel-identity of Superman, who has become quite a citywide sensation. 421 more words

Superman: Doomsday

I have to begin this post by acknowledging that this is more of a half-post, as I didn’t read the entire trade.

As Mistah J informed me prior to reading, this collection features various Doomsday appearances across multiple points in the comic continuity, many of which I haven’t reached yet.  817 more words

The Return of Superman

How does a hero return from the dead?

After the events in The Death of Superman, Metropolis, and indeed the whole world, was left wondering how it would go on without Earth’s mightiest hero to defend it. 875 more words

World Without a Superman

I never thought a simple comic could make me so emotional.  I should have known better.

Death is never the saddest part of a story; no, the heart-wrenching emotion comes later, as the deceased’s loved ones try to come to terms with their loss and pick up the pieces of their shattered lives.  906 more words

The Death of Superman

Here’s yet another instance of me really hating how many spoilers are given away by trade paperback covers.

Okay, okay, I know I can’t really complain, since this storyline was originally published over twenty years ago, and it’s not exactly a well-guarded secret that Superman dies at some point during his decades-long run.  758 more words

Superman: Panic in the Sky

I had to do a bit of back-and-forth between this trade and Superman: They Saved Luthor’s Brain!, since this storyline lies smack-dab in between stories in that trade.  486 more words

Superman: They Saved Luthor's Brain!

Well, I feel sort of silly.

In my last post I talked about how I figured Luthor’s death was only temporary.  If I had simply bothered to look at the cover of the next trade from “the shelf”, I would have realized I was 100% correct. 581 more words
