A DC ploy to make Superman be read again. Does it work? Yes.
In this special story arc, Superman was killed by a geneticly engineered creature, Doomsday. After his demise, 4 Supermen (wearing his insignia) stepped up to fit in his shoes.
One is called Son of Krypton, who turned out to be a back up "conscience" activated by the computers in the original Superman's Fortress of Solitude, who then take over his entombed body to be recharged back in the fortress. This Superman has the tendency to be c

Pretty dull stuff. This is for completists only but not essential reading for Superman fans. The first story is ok but it goes downhill quite rapidly after that. There are other Superman comics out there that are 100 times better!

I enjoyed this book very much, and highly recommend this graphic novel to any fan of Superman. I give this book 4 out of 5, and it is one of my favorites.

An excellent collection of Doomsday chronicles including Doomsday origin, a Doomsday/Green Lantern battle, and a Doomsday clash with Darkseid!

Superman dies, but not really. Doomsday dies, but keeps creeping back. This makes no sense.

Recommends it for: Superman fans
I was looking for a fun read when I picked this up, and that's eactly what I got!
I'm a huge Superman fan and always wanted to know what happened after Superman and Doomsday's epic battle.
Not only are the action scenes amazingly drawn, but you get to discover a little bit about Doomsday's past, which I found really interesting. The only thing that annoyed me was the inconsistency of the artwork with between the different 'chapters', also the final confronatation was a little bit disappointing.

Although he looks like a sucka in the blue and red suit, I liked the villians in the story and the flashbacks of his past. Too bad, they can't make superman movies with Darkseid or Doomsday. Kojac is overrated, I got enough of Dr. Evil to where we still have to deal with Lex. No more superman movies if your not going to put some cool villians.

Another what-were-they-thinking? from the children's collection. Even the spine screams "not a children's book" to me, and as for the cover, that's pretty scary stuff. Not that there's much that's genuinely inappropriate in this, it just isn't intended for kids, so might as well go where the intended audience will find it!

I read the comic where Superman dies fighting Doomsday as a kid and it was pretty powerful to me then, so I had to get this when I saw it at the comic store. It was highly entertaining but not blow you away good. This is more about Doomsday than Superman, you get to learn his history.

A very comprehensive collection of Doomsday after The Death of Superman storyline. We get his origins, how the heroes of the DC (mainly superman) deal with him and also how he was used by other villains in their schemes through out the Dc universe.

An interesting depiction of Doomsday and his history. I like the art and writing, and it is a suitable piece to add for Superman Fans.

From the descriptions I assume this collects Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey and the Doomsday annual.

Generally interesting stories about Doomsday (other than the atrocious finale by Jeph Loeb).
