DC Direct Currents: DEATH OF SUPERMAN!

Hello Legions of the Unspoken!  I’m very sorry for not being around much as of late; I’ve been busy with my Kansas City Royals winning the World Series and just life in general aside from that.  I’ll have a full-length article or podcast up very soon, but in the meantime, here’s a look at the Direct Currents (DC’s house prozine of the late 80’s and 90’s) from January of 1993 that features a look at some Elseworlds stories, the underrated Scarlett, but most importantly, the Death ofSuperman!  Enjoy and tell us what you think was most exciting about what DC was putting out in 1993!

90’s Treasure-Direct Currents #27!

Hey there Legions of the Unspoken!  I thought that I’d hit you guys with a quick post while I continue work on Exiles!  I love freebies from the comic book store.  I am the guy who nabs every button, bookmark, and butterscotch when I hit the LCS (which sadly, is too infrequently these days…), and I am sure you do as well!

In the 90’s, DC used to put out this great freebie to comic book stores called Direct Currents, which was named after their “Bullpen Bulletins” page.  This had upcoming titles, an article or 2, and usually an interview.

Well, how about you take a look at Direct Currents #27, from March of 1990?  Just for fun, tell me what you’d be pulling out of the checklist in the comments below!  And stay tuned for Exiles, Legions!
