    Review

    Groundbreaking for its time during the DC's run of Superman in the '90s, this story may be original in its own right but its flat characterizations and missing back-story make it less of a graphic novel and more of a collection.

    I Also Recommend:

    Compelling!

    Death of Superman is one of my favorite Graphic Novels of all time. Being a Superman fan, I was reluctant to read it, but I'm glad I did because, it was such an interesting story. The way the story is told and narrated, is unexpected. There were parts, when I forgot I was actually reading a comic.

    The story begins with an intergalactic monster called Doomsday, escaping from his prison capsule, which apparently has been on Earth for maybe since the before Christ times, escapes in what I think is Ohio. Then his rampage leads him to Metropolis where he and Superman have a showdown, ending in Superman's death.

    Now, I don't want to tell the entire story in the review so I suggest you go ahead and order Death of Superman, you won't regret it. Now, with all of the positive aspects of DOS, there is one thing that just irked me the whole way through. It's the dialogue. It's attrocius. There are lines in the story which will make you cringe, because nobody would ever talk during a fight for their lives. Also, there is dialogue where no dialogue is really needed. For example, for a few brief moments, Doomsday is temporarily subdued. Superman is beaten pretty bad, and can barely stand. He realizes that Doomsday has the potential to kill him, so he decides to embrace Lois one more time just in case. The two kiss and Superman turns to face Doomsday again, one more time. The writers ruined this by shoving dialogue in every nook and crannie of the images which for me ruined it.

    But the complaint above is just a drop in the bucket. Death of Superman is a definite must have for anyone who loves Graphic Novels.

    Super

    I am not an avid comic book reader. I love many graphic novels and have once in a while read a few comic books. So I am not very experienced in the world of comics, but I thought Death of Superman was great. It was very well done. The artwork is fantastic and the story is very cool. The only flaw for me was the characters were not very developed. I know this is because there are hundreds of previous comics developing the characters of Justice League, Supergirl, and maybe Doomsday. But the only character I knew anything about was superman. So at times I was unclear of the emotions going on during dialogue of characters. For example, it is made apparent that Superman and JLA's Guy Gardner's relationship is a little "icey". However, they do not explain it. Also, what is doomsday???? However, overall I am very impressed with the quality of the comic. The last section, every page is a full page splash image. I think they could of toned it down for just the very climatic scenes, but it nevertheless shows the beauty of the artwork. The best part are the last few pages. It is well written and really draws emotion. Like I said, i am not an experienced comic book reader so I do not have that much to compare with. But for me, this was very very well done.

    Can you read this without crying?

    For those who beleived super heroes could never die comes this tale of determination and in the end sacrifice. I was actually one of the ones who read the original comic magazine of this and I already couldn't stop crying before I was finshed reading it. Jerry Ordway does a superb job writing this breathtaking and very emotional story. May god bless you and may you rest in peace, Superman.
