Not happy with the covers. Have the Steranko and Jurgens on hold. The only thing that makes me happy is Brainiac on SyFy.

Whats REALLY GRINDING MY GEARS is that these covers were all released AFTER preview orders were due. I guess they knew people wouldn't order as many if they showed how *meh* most of these are.

Sad face.

Ok, 60s & 70s are my least liked. The 60s feels right with the cover showing major things that happened, but needed to be arranged differently. The 70s were 10 yrs of stories like his body grew so big that his normal size brain couldn't control it. Whew, what a stinker.

On the other hand, not only do I miss Curt Swan but Wally Wood as well. His version looked like it just came from the set of Max Fleisher's cartoons. Also, Neal Adams' Man of Steel breaking his kryptonite bonds would still be able to be used today. And should we overlook Kingdom Come's Alex Ross?? There were some very good times.

I wonder if the 60s could have used Superman in space with Earth 1, multiple Earths showing and all the heroes he met and worked with.
Just a thought.

Still waiting to see the 80s coverby middleton, but as of right now, I only kinda like the 30s cover by Rude. Glad I didn’t pull the trigger on them blind.

For me, it might be Dell otto or bust. If I was forced to buy one of these covers, I'd be the second one...first one looks like he's getting shot in the a$$.

Isn't there a George Perez cover?

Ouch, these are bad. Yeah, definitely won't be buying all of them. Michael Allred did a good job with the Curt Swan homage, but the cover just isn't that interesting. I like the 40's one. But why is it a modern Superman "S"? I guess DC gave instructions not to use the older versions, as no one did.

I also agree that the last one is the best. Although the costume looks a bit ... shiny? Like it's made out of aluminum or something. Still, it's the only really innovative approach.

I guess we'll have to see what the custom variants look like, maybe get some better covers.

How can you draw a Superman cover with a Super Girl, Super Monkey, Super Horse (Comet), and Super Cat. Without putting Krypto on there?

I mean seriously. Do some of these artists just draw, and don't "know" about Superman?

Krypto is there. Look below the "S" in Action Comics.

I passed on the # 1000 covers and figured I'd regret it later. Nope. Not so far. Hopefully, there are some variants with artwork I like better.

I don't normally buy Superman comics and I am trying to avoid all modern comics. But I feel a strong urge to get multiples in very high grade. Just in case.

HELP ME SOMEBODY! Talk me down from this ledge before I jump.


Psst, @conditionfreak...remember the BIG VALUE that was gonna be had with the bagged version of Superman's death. Look what it's worth today.

Yea, $2.50 cover price and now going for anywhere from $12 to $30 bucks. At the minimum, it has increased 300%. I have Wal-Mart stock that hasn't come anywhere near that kind of increase. And they are everywhere.

But I get your point.

True story:

I had a complete 18-19 book set of the "Death of Supes". Unfortunately, my ex-wife took it without my knowledge at the time of divorce.

Within that set, if she didn't break it up (they were all hand picked by me on the day of issue - easily a 9.6-9.8 set), it included a black bagged sealed version with about eight collaborator's SIGs on the cover - in gold or silver ink. I can't remember anymore.

IMO - it was stolen from me in 1996 and I it nor I have ever recovered it.

Sooo, if anyone ever comes across this set in your travels, I'll be willing to buy it at "pedigree status"!!

LOL

SERIOUSLY!!

I'll buy it from you.....I've always regretted my efforts went to shite! But if found, I would be whole again.

Even if you have seen it or heard if it....id love for it to be back in my collection, just for the memories they hold. T
If only #75 is found, to me, that was the "key book in that set".

If only, huh?

Thanks for letting me rant!

Virgin cover is sold out, not that I'm disappointed.

Curious as to why DC is not allowing the Dell Otto cover to be released, while every other cover variant has been shown. Must have some character on the cover that may give the current story away.

I'd make a guess to say that maybe they are limiting release of pics or other details, because of "saving the best for last" type of hype or "story release" as stated already, or they could be very limited - thus released on day - becomes "first come first serve" with just a few numbers for them (we'll say for hypothetical reasons ~500k for the main issue with a limited artist).

There are really too many variables existing too result in too many conclusions.

That would be wise as an actual good cover released will hurt the sales of the many bad ones. As of now I'm not buying any copy.

It's dell Otto or bust.
