The issue of Superman that chronicled the Man of Steel's final battle with the monster called Doomsday made headlines all over the world and sold four million copies in a matter of days, making it the fastest-selling comic book of all time. No one suspected at the time that the story of Superman's death would soon be eclipsed. by the incredible news of his return.

Here for the first time is the story behind the story of the cataclysmic battle with Doomsday and the dark days following Superman's funeral when all the world stood still; of the mysterious Superman sightings in the skies above Metropolis; and of the fate of Clark Kent, Lois Lane, Ma and Pa Kent, Justice League America, and the others involved in this magnificent drama. Here, too, is the truth about the four superbeings who simultaneously appeared in the city shortly after the Man of Steel's death to usher in the Reign of the Supermen, each claiming to be the true last son of Krypton. With never-before-published background material and exploring the story of Superman's battle with Doomsday, his death, and his return to life on Earth in greater detail and depth than possible in any other form, The Death and Life of Superman offers an exclusive inside look at the man, the legend, and the comics story of the decade.

Sv: Superman roman af Roger Stern

Haha, "begått" en roman. Det kanske är korrekt danska(?), men på svenska begår man mest brott och myteri m.m.

Ethno-postmodernism in an Albert Speer pattern dominates.
