Great Moments in Comics History: Superman #20

Superman (Vol. 2) #20 (1988)


Who needs natural story progression and an internal integrity to a comics page when there are books to sell!


  1. “Yes, yes, it’s me. I know, I’m a god among men and blah, blah, blah. Get over it. Walk it off. I need answers!”

  2. So the inability to avoid and up off cross over / event books have plagued comics for longer then we thought. Good moment and very relevant to current state of comic event books.

  3. edit – “avoid and pull off successful crossover / event books” much like the above panels, I jumped ahead, sorry.

  4. Want to know what happend between these two panels? Well to F’ing bad!

  5. Must’ve been some picnic!

  6. At least they told readers what book to read. I remember picking up Final Crisis #7 and being like “WTF?!” I don’t recall it saying read Superman Beyond first. And no, I will NOT let that go!

  7. It’s comforting to know that DC has ALWAYS been shameless. 🙂

  8. Damn, I remember that – made me get Doom Patrol #10, though…

  9. It feels like this is someone reliving a Vietnam flashback. I’m guessing the next panel is Lana trying to make Clark stop crying.
