    Since I was little, I've had a set of comics dealing with the death and return of Superman that I'm ashamed to admit I've never read (except The Death of Superman). I now want to start at the beginning and understand the complete story arc from when Superman is killed to his resurrection. Out of these issues -- what's the correct order, what am I missing, and what is not necessary?

    The Death of Superman TPB (w/ Lois holding blood covered Superman)
    The Legacy of Superman 1
    The Adventures of Superman 500 (top says "Back from the Dead?!")
    Funeral for a Friend (7 parts)
    Reign of the Superman! (4 issues with the different logos)
    -- Adv. of Sup. 501
    -- Sup. 78
    -- Sup. in Action Comics 687
    -- Sup.: TMOS 22
    Reign of the Supermen! (says Back for Good!)
    -- Sup. 82

    As you can see, I'm not too big into the Superman comics, and would like to change that. I appreciate anyone who takes the time to help me with this.

    Why not just pick up the novelization? It's quite good.

    Isn't everything connected to the saga collected in the three tpbs (Death of Superman, World Without a Superman and Return of Superman)?

    I'd recommend just picking up those.

    Thanks for the info. I also didn't think about the novelization, but I'd much prefer to read it in its comic form.

    It looks like I have everything need to avoid the WWAS tpb. The ROS tpb is what I need.
