Product description

The story that drew national media attention when DC Comics killed their greatest hero is collected here, in SUPERMAN: THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN! When a hulking monster emerges from an underground resting place and begins a mindless rampage, the Justice League is quickly called in to stop the colossal force of nature. But it soon becomes apparent that only the Man of Steel can stand against the monstrosity that has been nicknamed Doomsday. Battling their way throughout America, the two fight to a standstill as they reach the heart of Metropolis. Will Superman have to pay the ultimate price to defeat this seemingly unstoppable creature? SUPERMAN: THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN is not only one of the best selling graphic novels of all-time, but also captures one of the most iconic moments in American pop culture. Collects SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL #18-19, JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #69, SUPERMAN #74-75, ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #496-497 and ACTION COMICS #684.

This is one of the worst comic books / graphic novels I've ever read. Its plot is this (minor spoiler alert):

Doomsday causes destruction, heroes fight it and get beaten. Doomsday causes destruction, heroes fight it and get beaten. Superman fights Doomsday without success and tires. Doomsday causes destruction, heroes fight it and get beaten. Superman gets back into the fight, fights Doomsday without success and tires. Superman gets back into the fight, fights Doomsday without success and gets beaten. Superman gets back into the fight, fights Doomsday, beats him and dies.

The writing is not that good, the art is okay but nothing special, there's very little to redeem this bland book. It's possible that the following volumes offer more interest, but after this I'm not even going to try them. I'm giving this a score of 2 because it could be worse (the art is okay, after all), but I really had to force myself to slog through this.
