The Death and Return of Superman: The Videogame: The Review.

Superman fans may be interested to know that my review for The Death and Return of Superman for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System went up today over at EveryGame.  Here’s a sample paragraph to wet your whistle:

The Death of Superman was to comics what E.T. was to videogames.  The lie of Superman’s death was a publicity stunt that nearly single-handedly destroyed the industry.  Sure, in the short-term it was a roaring success – Kal-El’s impending doom made front page news across the globe; people came in droves to line up for a polybagged copy of Superman #75; people who previou$ly had no intere$t in comic$ what$oever, or people who hadn’t picked up a comic book in year$.  I’ll be filthy, stinking rich! The Western hive-mind exclaimed with dollar-signs in its eyes ($)($).
