In October, DC puts a new spin on the highest-selling comic book storyline ever with Tales from the Dark Multiverse: The Death of Superman.
The one-shot arrives in October as part of a new line of prestige-format one-shots that will explore how classic DC storylines unfolded in the DC Universe's dark underbelly. The line kicks off with two specials: Scott Snyder, Kyle Higgins and Javier Fernandez's Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Knightfall and Tales from the Dark Multiverse: The Death of Superman #1, from the creative team of Jeff Loveness, Brad Walker and Lee Weeks. The latter story explores what happens in a reality where the Man of Steel's demise at the hands of Doomsday leads to Lois Lane gaining powers and setting out on a bloody mission of revenge.
Future Tales from the Dark Multiverse one-shots will reinvent other classic storylines, incldugin New Teen Titans' The Judas Contract, Blackest Night and Infinite Crisis.

In a broken world much like our own, Lois Lane, twisted by rage and grief over the Man of Steel’s death, becomes the Eradicator, taking revenge on those who let Superman die and the corrupt world he could never defeat. Now, with the power of a god, she’s going to end the “never-ending” battle by any means necessary, halting the Reign of the Supermen before it even begins.</blockquote>
Tales from the Dark Multiverse: The Death of Superman #1, by Jeff Loveness and Andrew Hennessy, arrives in stores on October 30 with a cover by Lee Weeks.
