The best selling comics arc of all time is getting a darkly unprecedented redux in the upcoming Tales from the Dark Multiverse: The Death of Superman #1.
Every crisis aside, the DC Comics multiverse has never been more sinister since the recent revelation that beneath it all, in the underbelly of the shadowy corners of existence is the Dark Multiverse, a cancerous “alternate reality” where every world’s fate is sealed in doom! The events of Dark Nights: Metal revealed the realm of the Batman Who Laughs and the idea that for every event that’s taken place in the DC multiverse, there is a dangerously desperate alternate repercussion that’s never very good.
A new series will be taking the most popular and iconic storylines in DC Comics and rewriting their history with a Dark Multiverse slant! The latest issue takes on the most powerful story in the publishing giant’s lineage in Tales from the Dark Multiverse: The Death of Superman #1. The Man of Steel’s climactic confrontation literally shook the world of Superman and his friends and introduced the most deadly adversary, the monster known as Doomsday. In Tales from the Dark Multiverse: The Death of Superman #1 our hero meets his end, but at what consequence?
Here’s a First Look at Tales from the Dark Multiverse: The Death of Superman #1
Jeff Loveness tackles the “what if?” angle of it all and reveals what happens when a grief-stricken Lois Lane, consumed by rage and grief, becomes an instrument of ultimate revenge — The Eradicator! Fueled by her fury Lois goes on a rampage to destroy everyone who let Superman die, and with the power of a god, she intends on completing the mission that the Man of Tomorrow failed to finish — at whatever the cost! This is unlike anything that anyone has ever read and begins an interesting dive into the newest alternate-edge of the DC Comics universe.
Tales from the Dark Multiverse: The Death of Superman #1 is written by Jeff Loveness (Rick & Morty, Judas, Groot) with art by Brad Walker (Detective Comics, Aquaman) with Andrew Hennessey & Norm Rapmund. Color by John Kalisz. The issue will hit stores and newsstands on October 30th and retail for $5.99.
