Greetings Superfans, and TGIF! This week, we take another trip into the fabled Triangle Era, with “Dead Again!”.
Superman died defending Metropolis from the monster Doomsday, but he’s since come back and is the one, true, real Man of Steel…right? RIGHT? You’ll have to read this 11 issue magnum opus of fun and entertainment to find out, dear reader!
What are your overall thoughts on the Dead Again arc?
Between comics and TV, this week’s selections present us with tales of an impostor Superman (or is he? ). Which was your favorite, and do you have any other favorite Superman adventures where his identity is called into question?
I like Conduit, you like Conduit (yeah, you do, admit it ), we all like Conduit! How did you enjoy the man with the Kryptonian cable hookup in Dead Again compared to his other adventures?
That’s what’s alive and cooking for this week. Rise to the occasion, and enjoy!
SN: I wish you all a very happy and wonderful 2020!
Also, this take is so hot I just removed it from the oven, but is Conduit basically being positioned as Superman’s Eddie Brock? I dunno. This story just reminds me of some of those early Venom appearances (before he went all Lethal Protector).
First since we’re back in triangle, let us again complain that Bendis was given both Superman and Action and we do not get a weekly dose of Superman. His titles were selling well enough to justify weekly before the change, let’s go back to weekly.
Okay, I don’t normally endorse blowing hard working security personnel to smithereens with atomic blasts, but Jakes is a butt head who really asked for it.
So 11 issues in a week you say? Well I’m game. I just spent the last couple of days in the company of one Roy Harper while prepping for my own club next month so I could probably handle this now that I’m finished.
I’d love to see a weekly narrative run through the core Superman titles again @msgtv.
It was slightly attempted during the New Krypton saga, but even then some books were self-contained, depending on the story. Codename: Patriot is a story of note from that period that did run through the main Superbooks.
@JasonTodd428 11 issues and an episode of L&C if you’re up for it.
“Dead Again!” is but one of many multi-title arcs I’ll be spotlighting. The Trial of Superman will be along before Spring rolls around, too.
