Superman vs. Doomsday: Condensed by my little sis!

Wow! Has it really been 17 years since Superman was "killed" by Doomsday? Pretty crazy to think about, considering that it's still being used to feed current comic book storylines (reading Blackest Night, anyone?). Well, I was digging through some old college sketchbooks last night and I found this little mini-comic that my sister made for me back in 1992.

See, I was a huge Superman fan and she knew it. She was just learning to write pretty decent and she made me a "Superman vs. Doomsday" comic (she was only 6 years old at the time). I laughed as I read it.

You know, when Supes died, it was a pretty big deal, but like all "dead" comic book characters, he was resurrected. Now, it's like it didn't really amount to much...and her little comic pretty much sums up the whole storyline.

Doomsday arrives.
A bunch of things get said.
There's some fighting.
The end.

My sis wrote her own dialog.
I've typed the words out so you can read them better.

I hope you enjoy this little blast from the past (and have a chuckle)!
Thanks, little sis!

LOL -- I really liked the storyline at the time, but she pretty much hit it right on the head.
