Look, I love Death of Superman. That trade paperback was my first Superman book. It’s a fantastic story. But come on, DC! Can’t we reprint any other Superman stories from that era? I would happily pony up the cash needed for a collection of stuff between Exile and Death of Superman. So many good issues just waiting to be reprinted.
