It’s weird to think the “Death of Superman” event is 30 years old. The milestone event came in a time where the DC comics leadership wanted to seemingly shake up the status quo in the Superman universe. The sales for the Superman comics were nowhere close to those of the new crop of antiheroes that were dominating comics at the time such as Spawn, Wolverine and Punisher, all coming from rival comic publications.
In November 1992, readers of “Superman no.75” (Dan Jurgens and Brett Breeding) looked up wide-eyed from the last pages of what is now regarded as one of the most significant issues in comics history.
It was the year 1992, I was seven. I remember taking a break from chores to read the newspaper. I always had a habit of reading the arts and entertainment section, and there on the cover of the Virginian-Pilot was that symbol we all know too well. The red symbol of the House of EL written in blood with black behind it. It read “Superman is Dead.” I was shocked.
This isn’t something I’ve just started to think about; it always starts working in my brain whenever the anniversary pops around, DC reminds us, everyone starts posting their bagged issues with the gruesome bloody S on the front, etc.
Despite reading and collecting comic books since 1992, I still think of myself as a relative newbie to the hobby. After all, I know folks from my old comic shop who became fans in the Silver Age — they’re the veterans. (Plus, were the 90s really THAT long ago? Asking for a graying, thirtysomething friend.)
