Re: The Death of Superman: 16 Years Later

It really was a fun time to collect comic books. In the years since I have to say, in some ways the internet added to my love of comics, but in others, such as the fan negativity and the spoilers, it has hindered it.

I read this "cold" without hearing specific spoilers or inside information about what was going to happen. I didn't read any posts with critical comments about it, pointing out the weaknesses and the "obvious" plot points.

It was and still is a good story, and I think it was the perfect time for it to come out. Now, I think the same story structure would not work well at all.
