The Death of Supermanwas a 1992 stunt that turned out to be DC's bestsellingSupermancomic ever. The massive 11-issue crossover among four different series (Superman,Superman: The Man of Steel,Action Comics, andJustice League of America) introduces an unstoppable alien named Doomsday who creates a path of destruction on his way to the heart of Metropolis and whom Superman must stop at any cost. It's of interest as a milestone of the Superman mythos (though of course the outcome didn't last), but casual fans might be underwhelmed by the unfamiliar villain and the unfamiliar Justice League (with Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, and other minor heroes rather than the traditional lineup), the drawn-out story (by Dan Jurgens, Jerry Ordway, Louise Simonson, and Roger Stern), and the ordinary art (by Jurgens, Jon Bogadanove, Tom Grummett, and Jackson Guice).--David Horiuchi

Doomsday is not a monster with an agenda; the mind of the creature cannot be probed beyond the point of having the simple goal to destroy everything it encounters. A television …

It's taken a long time for comics to get where they are today. At the present, comics are widely regarded as a serious art form, although the medium still has a long way to go before everyone buys that. It's true, though. Unfortunately, when most people think of comics, they think of the original comics from the '40s, '50s, and '60s, back when Batman and Robin were fighting "Blockbuster," a villain who could kill Batman with his flashlight, or when Lois Lane could only watch helplessly as Superman …
