I like to think of myself as someone that knows this era of Superman.  I hesitate to call myself an expert but at the same time I am confident in my knowledge of the Post Crisis Superman.  Despite this I still find myself discovering new and exciting things from this time period.  Things like this…

In addition to releasing a Platinum version of Superman #75 (which you can read about here) DC also released, in limited quantities, a Platinum version of the trade.  There are no differences between this trade and the standard one outside of the stripe on the cover telling us that this is the Platinum version but it is still very cool to own.  My good friend Shag (he of Firestorm Fan fame) gave me this asking only that I hand over one of my copies of the standard trade in case he ever wanted to read it again.  Apparently he got this at a Diamond Comics retailer summit that he attended back when he managed a comic book store.  So thanks, Shag!  This was an awesome thing to discover.

  1. Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to send you an email. I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.

  2. I am about to produce an updated post about the many lives of The Death of Superman as a collected edition. I have acquired some neat versions of it and wanted to talk about the latest printing. So there will be the original, the next version with the cape cover, the one that came with the movie, a UK hardcover edition and the new one.
