Re: The Death of Superman: 16 Years Later
I remember when this originally came out and the price went through the roof of the black bagged book. I think this was the first time any "Big" character had been killed, so the fan interest as well as the casual reader or the general public's interest was stoked. Say what you will about the "Return" arc that followed, but Superman #75 was a masterpiece of DC's marketing team.
