Due to an error, “The Death of Superman 30th Anniversary Special #1,” which was announced back in July, was left out of the November 2022 DC Comics catalogue. Because of that, people interested in ordering and buying the special might be unaware that the Final Order Cutoff Date, which is the last time a shop can order a book for a customer, is fast approaching.
The Final Order Cutoff Date for the Special will be this Sunday, August 28th.
There are a number of variant covers, including the Black Bagged version, to choose from. Some are open order (meaning the retailer can order the covers directly) and some are based on the number of copies ordered by the retailer. You will need to talk with your retailer about ordering the version you want to purchase.
“The Death of Superman 30th Anniversary Special #1” will be available on November 8, 2022.
THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN 30TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL #1
30 years ago, the unthinkable happened. The Man of Steel died. After sacrificing himself to stop the unstoppable global threat, Doomsday, Metropolis and the rest of the DC Universe mourned the loss of their greatest hero. To mark this monumental moment in comics, DC has reunited the complete creative team behind the original event for four brand-new stories. Led by Dan Jurgens and Brett Breeding, the special kicks off with a new Superman story and villain… DOOMBREAKER! Followed by a series of short stories revisiting some of Superman’s greatest allies and exclusive pinups done by some of comics’ greatest artistic talent including LEE WEEKS, GABRIEL RODRIGUEZ, BILL SIENKIEWICZ, and WALTER SIMONSON.
