    Default DC Dark Knights Metal is the biggest event since Death of Superman!

    So many comic sales charts are reporting that Metal is the biggest event since Death of Superman .....that was like 25 years ago. I wasn't even born then. Snyder and Capullo sell man and of course Batman. Doomsday Clock might be even bigger. .

    I'm glad for Snyder and Capullo. While I have certain philosophical differences with Snyder, I think he does some great fun stuff with Batman comics. I'm really excited for All Star's continuation as special prestige releases (that are not under the All Star banner). Snyder and Sean Murphy's arc is coming eventually.

    I knew putting Snyder and Capullo on a DC event would be big, they're the team that put Batman on the map, but Death of Superman big ?

    Yeah...METAL has me intrigued, but I don't see any overall hype nearly as big as DEATH OF SUPERMAN, which drew mainstream media attention and had people lining up outside comic shops.

    yeah, while Metal may sell quite well it will never reach the level of Death of Superman. like you said it had mainstream media attention and was like one of the most talked about pop culture events of the year/decade. i remember my parents, who never read a comic book in their lives, talking about Superman dying.

    while Metal may sell, i think DC has had bigger events since DoS.

    As big as this...?
    Really?

    Would be nice if it reached Star Wars #1 level, though, even if I don't care much for the event.

    Are we talking about sales or hype? Although Metal is doing extremely well, I don't think it's reached DoS levels.

    When they make a skit about it on SNL, then I might believe it's comparable to Death of Superman.

    Thisseems promising, but I would have expected this big.

    I don't know why there are people disagreeing with the thread title. OP just stated facts that a DC event has not sold that high since death of superman.
