  3. My journey into this wonderful hobby began in early 1994, when I found The Death of Superman graphic novel at Kroger, I was 11 years old then. The graphic novel collected the seven issue storyline "Doomsday!", the comic book colors inside hooked me. I had heard of this “event” but I was so late to the party that it was over. The Death and Return of Superman story arc was a trilogy of storylines; "Doomsday!", "Funeral for a Friend" and "Reign of the Supermen!", all ancient history by '94. After I got The Death of Superman graphic novel I searched out issues for "Funeral for a Friend" and "Reign of the Superman!," not an easy task for a kid with no job (or allowance 'cause I never did chores), who's only transportation were his parents or the school bus. I was able to catch up thanks to few Toys-R-Us trips, where late comers like myself were able to pick up various two packs and packaged sets of comics, with a lot of Superman books. I found most of the issues I needed for "Funeral for a Friend" this way. As I got more into collecting I decided I wanted to have the individual "Doomsday!" issues, even thou I had them nicely collected in TPB form, after another Toy R Us trip, I got all those issues from a box set. As I started accumulating price guides, poly bags and backing boards a monster began to gestate, who became concerned about condition and value. I then discovered there were actually multiple printings for many of these issues, and the first printings were more valuable! Each printing after the first edition was notated by a roman numeral, next to the issue number and price on the top left corner of each cover. The cover art remained the same with each subsequent printing but the title logo color scheme changed for each issue’s printing. After realizing this the 2nd, 3rd and so on printings I had were tarnished in my eye. All of my "Doomsday!" issues were later printings, and not worth the paper they were printed on, and most of my 'Funeral' issues were the same. As the years went on, and the prices went down, I replaced many of my later printings with first prints, recycling the paper rags I had before. Then CGC came along.... Around 2007 I decided to start CGC Registry set for this storyline, all 9.8, first prints only, yet by the early 2010's I re-discovered the later printings, becoming enticed by the thrill and challenge of trying to find these books in high grade. I love how unexpected all of this was, I know I never thought the later printings would ever be collectible, and I think it's safe to say I wasn't the only one. Here are my CGC examples thus far, keeping the thrill of the hunt alive. Updated 11/01/2019 Some of my childhood books also survived, thankfully.
  4. Action Comics #683 (November, 1992) is a book I'm quite fond of, not only for the cover art, but also for the era that the book was published in, collectively referred to in the hobby as the Post-Crisis era. I also call this time frame Post-Crisis, Pre-Doomsday (1986-1992, or Pre-Death and Return of Superman), which is my favorite era of Superman reading material, focusing on great stories and character development for all the main and supporting characters involved. I did not start reading comics until early 1994; post Death and Return of Superman. One of the joys of finding the Death of Superman collected edition then was the discovery of the Superman continuity in the comic books and that Superman had been completely revamped in the late ‘80s, with a fresh new take on the character and the universe he inhabited. Not only did I become hooked on the Death and Return of Superman storyline, I became hooked on the books prior to, it was like streaming a series online to catch up and follow a developing story. I would not get to find all of these Pre-Death and Return of Superman comics until after childhood. I would find issues here and there at a few comic shops, enough to fill in some story gaps or give me a general idea, but most places I went to rarely had any Superman back issues prior to the Death and Return of Superman saga. These books then became placed on a pedestal for me, thought of as ancient, priceless relics, which would take a lifetime to find. This brings me to Action Comics #683, a book I first found, probably in 1995. I remember well pulling that issue out of the long box. The nighttime setting and full moon added an eerie atmosphere, seldom seen on Superman covers. Cover artist Jackson Guice does a good likeness of Superman, one I cannot get enough of. Childhood copy I was excited to see this cover for the first time; I was even more excited to find it was cover dated November, 1992. Why the cover date? The four Superman titles with this date include something special, a teaser for the next storyline, Doomsday! The teaser was in the form of the last page for each issue that month, a fist pounding through a vault, warning that, “Doomsday is coming!” I only found two of the four Doomsday teaser issues back then, I did find the other two as an adult and I still search for them to this day. Doomsday teaser pages Those four wonderful covers dated November, 1992! In 2008 I found a graded copy of Action Comics #683 on eBay, for a BIN price of only $29.99 with free shipping! I bought it right away; it was also the first copy of this issue to be certified 9.8 by CGC. I was excited to finally have the first printing of this issue; my childhood copy was a second printing, something I thought of as a bad thing at the time. My graded 9.8 copy was the lone 9.8 in the census for a few years, then the book, along with the other Doomsday teaser issues starting taking off price wise. In 2016 I found a raw copy of Action Comics #683 for only $3.00, I couldn’t believe my luck, I also couldn’t believe how good it looked when I put it in a fresh bag and board. Around that same time I started looking for nice copies of the second printing, a frustrating search to say the least. Time went on and I made a few new friends on the Collectors Society. One such friend shared my passion for the Death and Return of Superman books. One day in 2020, my friend submitted three copies of the second printing, and all three came back in 9.8 grade. His search was an exhausting one but his persistence paid off. I was floored when he told me he’d gift me one of these treasures. Holding both printings in 9.8 side-by-side was a dream come true. Denver ComicCon, 2016 An awesome gift This year I received a grading credit from CGC along with an award for Best Set Presentation for my Action Comics (Complete) registry set. I decided to pull a few books to send it, one of them being the copy of Action Comics #683 from the Denver ComicCon. The book came back 9.8 in a beautiful holder. I could sell one of my 9.8s for probably $100 or more, but I’m keeping both of them. To date, I have only seen a few copies of this book in the wild (I’m not saying this book is really that rare, it just rarely crosses my path), I had the luck of Forest Gump with this particular book, and I’m extremely grateful. What a cover! One more thing! My first graded example was certified on 10/01/2008. My second graded example was certified on 10/01/2021!
  5. I’ve recently acquired a new piece for my CGC Death and Return of Superman set, Superman #v2 #73 (11/92). This book completes a set of four, which serves as a bookend to a much larger set. Why? The four Superman titles cover dated November 1992 each contained a teaser page, the last page, warning us that "Doomsday is coming!" While the stories for each of these books had nothing to do with the forthcoming "Doomsday!" storyline, beginning in Superman: The Man of Steel #18 (12/92), the last page for each issue showed a mysterious arm, pounding through a metal wall. The four teaser issues have always been hard for me to find. I started when I was a kid, I only found two of the four, Superman: The Man of Steel #17 and Action Comics #683, both second printings. I did manage to finally find nice raw copies of Superman #73 and Adventures of Superman #496 as a twenty something in the 2000s, I thought then I had completed this special set within a set, but I decided to go for a CGC set. I guess you could say the nice raw copies I found were only teasers... Finally getting Superman #73 in a CGC 9.8 holder marks the end of an 11 year search, now I have all four issues in CGC 9.8 holders. "Here Be Monsters" Won on eBay: 12/16/2012 - $34.05 "Time Ryders!" “Truth and Consequences” Won on eBay: 2/6/2011 - $49.00 "The Trial of the Jackal" eBay BIN: 11/26/2008 - $29.99 I really enjoy all four covers, Superman #73 and Action Comics #683 are tied for my favorite. I still search out raw copies to this day, I rarely see them but snag them when I can. Update: 07/09/2020 The search continues for Superman #73 Second Printing.
  6. Merchandising! Opps I meant Death and Return of Superman the merchandise! I remember a video game, card sets, posters and pogs. Let's see what you got!
  7. I've been building the perfect beast that is my CGC Death and Return of Superman set, going on 12 years now. My set is an assemblage of subsets, including the "Doomsday!" and "Reign of the Supermen!" chapters, along with all the multiple printings of the various issues, Platinum Editions (Superman #75, Adventures of Superman #500), and Collector's Editions. Another subset, or beast, is the "Funeral for a Fried" chapter, a collection of nine books that tell the story of a world without a Superman. I consider this to be the best chapter of the saga, with those closest to Superman mourning with the citizens of Metropolis, other characters in the DC Universe, President Clinton and the rest of the world. With the exception of Superman: The Man of Steel #21, each cover is fantastic. Outlined with a black boarder, these books are a challenge to find in 9.8 grade. I scored Superman: The Man of Steel #20 recently, now I'm only three issues away from having all the first prints in 9.8 holders. Requiescat in pace, Superman.
  8. Trying to complete a Superman Doomsday Death Funeral Return set. Looking for 9.8 potential raw Superman: The Legacy of Superman 2nd print. PM with asking price. Thanks!
  9. Hello, If you have one of the three 9.8 slabs in the census for this issue with WHITE PAGES and are interested in selling I’d pay $150.
