Superman: The Final Days of Superman by Peter Tomasi

The New 52 comic line is coming to an end making the way for Rebirth.

If you haven't stayed up with the New 52 series, let me just ruin for you by saying this is a retelling of The Death of Superman grand event so many years ago. Remember Doomsday?

In this version of Superman's death, there is no Doomsday character, but there are the multiple versions of Superman. While they aren't the same as that comic from long ago, there is a similar feel.

This is a nice story as it reflects on Superman's time on earth and the people he has connected with. You know it really isn't the end as it clearly leads into the next series of Rebirth.

The death of these major characters in comics has sort of lost it's zing but even then, Tomasi does an adequate job of creating emotion and empathy for these characters.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by DC Comics.
