About this title

Synopsis:

"SUPERMAN -- DEAD!" --The Daily Planet

On November 18, 1992, news of  Superman's death shocked the world as the legendary Man of steel was killed defending Metropolis from the monster called Doomsday.

Here at last is the dramatic story behind the best-selling comic book of all time: the fates of Clark Kent, Lois Lane, Ma and Pa Kent, the Justice League, and the reign of the four super-beings who mysteriously appeared after Superman's funeral, each claiming to be the real Last Son of Krypton. And finally, here is the complete incredible story of Superman's triumphant return!

In this thrilling novel, Roger Stern, a veteran writer of Action Comics, chronicles the most amazing comeback in comic-book history -- told with more gripping detail and background than ever before.

From the Inside Flap:

You only thought you knew the whole story ...

The Death and Life of Superman

On November 18, 1992, the news of Superman's death stunned the world. 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.

Yet, in all the excitement and fanfare surrounding the spectacular revelations of Superman's death --- and life --- many questions have remained unanswered.

Until now.

In this new novel, Roger Stern --- author of the Superman: The Man of Steel Sourcebook and writer for Action Comics, the oldest comic-book series in the world and the longest-running of the four monthly Superman comics --- utilizes details available nowhere else to reveal the complete story of the vents leading up to Superman's tragic end and the extraordinary circumstances that followed.

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, the justice League of America, and the others involved in this dramatic drama. Here, too, is the truth about the four super-beings 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 than possible in any other form, The Death and Life of Superman offers an exclusive loon at the man, the legend, and the comics story of the decade.
