Superman, no. 75, January 1993. New York: DC Comics. Stephen A. Geppi Collection of Comics and Graphic Arts, Serial and Government Publications Division, Library of Congress (013.01.00) © DC Comics


Superman, no. 75, features the final part of the storyline “Death of Superman,” where Superman dies after fighting Doomsday. This “crossover event” took place over multiple DC Comics series and over the course of several months, ending when issue no. 75 was released in November 1992 (though cover is dated January 1993). The issue was released in multiple editions, including in a limited edition white polybag that featured one skybox “bloodlines” trading card as well as the comic book. The Library has chosen to open this issue from the Stephen A. Geppi Collection so that researchers and comics fans can see other materials included within the sealed set.
