We tried to read Spider-Man: The Death of Jean DeWolff, but I think we must have picked up the wrong comic.

DeWolff, Spider-Man’s long-time friend in the NYPD, was barely in it!

We did get a little story about Daredevil and some villain named Sin-Eater?

And then we talked about politics even though we promised we wouldn’t. Plus Secret Wars rolls on with issue 6!

Next Time: Nightwing: Year One (Nightwing 101-106)

We don't want to spoil how Death of Superman ends, so we'll keep this brief. Let's just say that a certain "Superman" meets his "death" because he gets "punched many times in the face."

Join us for this milestone event from the early 90s as well as our continuation of Secret Wars with issue #5. 

Next Time: The Death of Jean DeWolff in Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man 107-110.

In 1988, DC Comics urged the American people to exercise their right to vote by calling a 900 number and deciding the fate of Robin #2, Jason Todd.

The people were not kind to Jason.

We read “Batman: A Death in the Family” from issues 426-429 by Jim “Infinity” Starlin. Does anybody actually call him that? Anyways, this book doesn’t get very cosmic, but we do get the Joker/Ayatollah team-up we didn’t know we needed.

All this, plus Secret Wars #4!

Next Time: The Death of Superman!
