Cosmic Treadmill, Episode 63: The Death of Superman

Cosmic Treadmill, Episode 63:
The Death of Superman (1992)
Greetings, comics enthusiasts! To celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the landmark event, our pallbearers Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) dive deep into DC Comics' Death of Superman from 1992! After providing some context for the series by describing its contributing factors, and an exhaustive look at the many creators involved in this story, they break down every comic book leading up to Superman's demise in the landmark issue Superman vol. 2 #75, which gets their special attention. Then our grief-stricken duo get down to brass tacks and talk about the dollar values of these comics today, and discuss several other times Superman has departed this mortal coil throughout his existence. It's an action-packed adventure that ends with tragedy, a deal you won't get this side of Shakespeare!
