In 1992 DC published a story that crossed over to all the Superman titles and received a great amount of mainstream press attention: Superman was killed. After slugging it out with an unstoppable killing machine dubbed Doomsday, both Superman and the monster lay dead at the story’s conclusion. But getting to that point involved an ever-escalating series of battles with emergency personnel as well as other heroes of the DC universe. From the first glimpses of a canvas-bound prisoner methodically pounding his way to freedom, to the grand finale of full-page panels, the various writers and artists maintained an edge-of-your-seat tension until the cathartic denouement. Then the real story began.
This trade paperback collects all the chapters of this landmark story from the four Superman titles in which they appeared, as well as the elusive chapter from the Justice League America that many fans missed.
