A few days ago I wrote about the publication of publicity grabbing comics like this weeks Human Torch death issue of Fantastic Four, and the Death of Superman issue from 1992.
When I stopped by my local comic shop this week I saw another ridiculous similarity between the two issues. In 92, the Superman death issue came in a cheap plastic bag with a bleeding Superman logo printed on it.
Marvel decided to revive the idea.
This bags look and feel exactly like the Superman bags from 92. It doesn’t really matter, but it’s just another example of Marvel trying to make this seem more valuable than it will be.
