Praise for THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN:
"The tragedy proved to be a massive hit, receiving significant national news coverage and selling millions upon millions of copies. Spanning several different Superman titles, the arc was a blockbuster in every sense of the word... the final fight between Superman and Doomsday is a knock-out brawl for the ages."--PASTE MAGAZINE
"An epic and carefully constructed narrative."--BLOODY DISGUSTING
"Both in the universe and outside of it, DC toyed with the idea of a culture that had come to take the Man of Steel for granted. This was a time when heroes were getting darker and more extreme in their methods, and the style of the era didn't seem to allow for a character like Superman to keep his relevance. By removing Superman from the equation, we - and the characters in the DCU - learned how important Superman was as an icon, and his return was all the more impactful. This storyline brought the real and fictional universes together in a stirring realization of just how much Superman means to our culture." --Ign
