And when that someone was really close to their hearts, the void left behind in this realm is a heavy burden to carry on. And even worse if it happened when you thought that it would be just another day.Superman is dead. The Earth's Greatest Hero fell while defending Metropolis and its people from the raging stampede provoked by the monster known as Doom [...]

    2. Following the events in The Death of Superman, Dan Jurgens brings us an excellent volume filled with stories that reflects on a world without a Superman.This is an essential volume that collects a bunch of issues that show readers how much impact the loss of Superman can have on humanity. From individuals who have lost their source of hope to grave robbers who have evil intentions. I honestly enjoyed how every issue explored different angles on this event, and even focused on Lois Lane's immense [...]

    3. As much as I disliked the subject matter, this is one of the greatest Superman books ever written.

    4. This comic collection is far better than I expected. Essentially, it's nine issues that were written to try to let Superman's body cool down a little before DC started the story of bringing him back. I picked up this book with a fair amount of frustration that DC would decide to kill off their most iconic character and then not even have the decency to let him stay dead, so I planned to loathe this set of throwaway stories, but they actually turned out to be well, not quite all the way to "good, [...]

    5. Collecting The Adventures of Superman #498–500, Action Comics #685–686, Superman: The Man of Steel #20–21 and Superman #76–77 as well as stories 1 and 4 from Superman: The Legacy of Superman #1, this volume picks up where The Death of Superman left off.Now, in my review of that preceding volume, I expressed a certain disappointment about the content – in particular the fact that the whole thing is just a long drawn-out fight without any proper narrative depth to it. World Without a Sup [...]

    6. It was interesting to see how the people of the world (mostly Metropolis) would adjust to Superman not being around anymore. But it got really repetitive really fast. Most of the book was somebody saying something along the lines of "Geez, it sure sucks that Superman's gone now. And Clark Kent is missing, too. Miss Lane must be devastated." That gets a little old. And then there are parts that seem unnecessary, like the scene with the Prankster in prison. That didn't do anything for the story at [...]

    7. Purchased this when I was a kid. I meant to get the others but only ended up getting this one. Anyway, this story is well done, i think, and shows the kind of vacuum that occurs once a mighty legend has been taken down. my favorite moment is with Lex Luther, who, after finding out Superman is dead, crashes a chair on Doomsday (the dude responsible for beating Superman) and yelling "he was MINE!".

    12. Dan Jurgens's sequel to Death of Superman meditates upon what happens to the DC Universe when one of its most iconic heroes is no longer alive to save the day. Deeply embedded within aspects of the 4th World, it was refreshing to encounter characters like the Guardian and the NewsBoy Legion outside of Jack Kirby's comics, and Jurgens's investigation into how the media would react to such a situation is intriguing, but overall I find that the final impression this volume leaves on me is not as in [...]

    13. Actively painful and embarrassing to read. This is why comics in the late 1970s and early 1980s sucked. What's scary is that this lame piece of garbage was written in 1993. Was I ever juvenile enough not to cringe at page after page of "plain, everyday Americans" proclaiming (in what I can only imagine is the authors' idea of workingman's patois) that "Sooperman was a real Amurrikin"? Lame, boring, bad. Reminded me of a bad Latin American soap opera. I'd call it "World Without An Excuse". Feel f [...]

    14. Immediately following The Death of Superman, World Without a Superman illustrates how the D.C. universe reacts to Superman's death. There is some excellent storytelling within these pages, and some excellent emotional resonance. Many of the chapters ended with poignant and memorable moments of grief for the loss of one of the greatest heroes ever written. Many readers have complained that it is corny and contrived, but I can forgive these faults. For me, it was good enough to make me care enough [...]

    15. So what is the world without Superman like? Well It's rubbish really, as is the comic. It's just a bunch of comic characters crying and says stupid things like 'I can't believe he's gone', 'What will happen to his body' and 'I never got to say goodbye, he was more my friend than he was yours' etc. It's absolute drivel. An awful money making scam which is quite wrongly regarded as one of the greatest comics of all time. He came back 3 months later and all that was different was his haircut. It sh [...]

    16. If anything, this was more interesting than the Death of Superman. It is far less action-packed, but a lot more nuanced. There are some pretty well-written episodes of grief from people who knew Superman well, and some heartening moments of people learning from his example. There is also a mystery story woven in, and I can see how this led up to the Reign of the Supermen storyline, though I can't recall all of the details of that any longer. These books showed a variety of reactions to Superman' [...]

    17. Although this arc is definitely dated, it's still an okay read. My main problem with this trade is that there are so many secondary characters here who play a role, and yet I have no idea who in the heck they are. While some are obvious (Supergirl, Lex Luthor, Lois Lane, the Kents, etc), I have never heard of most of these people or why they matter. It seems like every second-string character in the DC Universe is making an appearance in this arc.

    18. I loved The Death of Superman and The Return of Superman and thought this was a good in-between book. It's not as good as the other two but I did enjoy reading about the reactions of friends, family and enemies after the death of Superman.

    19. This is the most disappointing "best-selling" graphic novel series I've ever read! Where do I start? Okaywhat happened to Doomsdayd for that matterwho the hell is (was) Doomsday? Who are these Newsboys and why are they even included being such awful, mood-breaking characters? Why didn't crime skyrocket when Superman left? I'm guessing they didn't really need him that badly after all.UghI'm so angry at the wasted opportunity here

    20. This picked up where Death of Superman left off, and had quite a bit more going on plot-wise. Being the middle of the story, I'm naturally left with lots of questions. Mainly involving the relationship between Scottish ape-man Lex Luther and Supergirl. Will look to Return of Superman to finish the story arc, then maybe I'll read some Batman.

    21. less Epic due to the gay ending. And in both of these(death and world without)Supergirl is super ANNOYING. She's such a doormat. And Lex looks funny all red-haired and mountain man-y. I'm not sure what look they were going for or why he would look like that and say "love" at the end of every other sentence.

    22. There's a lot of cheese in this, with characters narrating their own actions aloud, but it was another era, and it's actually kind of fun. The whole thing is very '90s, but, man, it is honest and genuine. That's a weird critique, but with comic books, there's often a point to prove yourself, and this one's main focus was a loyal dedication to the character of Superman.

    23. It wasn't as good as the Death of Superman, but what was good about it was that how what happened to the Man of Steel in it affected his friends and loved ones. But what I like about this the most was the character Jonathan Kent who kept reminiscing about him as a child and Lois Lane having to deal with her loss.

    24. This is a nice follow up to the epic Death of Superman. There's a really trippy sequence with Jonathan, which does a good job of looking at his relationship with Clark. However, there's quite a lot going on in this volume, causing it to be more than a little chaotic and jarring at times. The end is totally worth it though.

    25. Long, lame, drawn-out spin-off exploiting the death of our beloved superhero. Blasphemy!

      Reply

    26. Good, but not great. It has so much potential, and delivered on only some of it. I found the way they explored the anguish experienced by the Kents, Lois, Jimmy, Lex, etc to be really engaging, and wish they would have dove deeper into that angle. Instead, portions of the story line devolved into the cliche sci-fi stuff DC was pumping out at the time.

    27. Mainly centered around Project Cadmus' attempts to dissect Superman's body. There is an additional sideplot where the surviving Justice Leaguers attempt to cover Superman's boyscout errands, like watering the Sahara and reuniting estranged families. Plus we get to see Lex Luthor kill a woman for no particular good reason. Primarily a placeholder until Return of Superman.

    28. In which Jonathan Clark brings Superman back from the spirit world through sheer old man stubbornness.The Superman funeral stuff was a bit boring, but the stubborn old farmer in the afterlife sequence is well worth the price of admission.

    29. Me gustó bastante menos que La Muerte de Superman pero como todavía venía con envión, me entretuvo bastante. Supongo que si en algún momento lo releo le sabré criticar varias cosas que en su momento no vi o no me gustaron. Por ahora me quedo con el recuerdo que es bastante grato.

    30. Really good, carries on the story from 'The Death Of Superman' well and gives the reader an insight into life without the man of steel. Great artwork and, although it does get a little weird near the end, well worth a read.
