The And Graves Give Up Their Dead ... wiki last edited by Darkside_of_the_Sun on 08/01/14 03:03PM View full history

  1. Cover by John Byrne.
  2. "And Graves Give Up Their Dead ..." written and penciled by John Byrne, inked by Dick Giordano, colored by Tom Ziuko and lettered by John Costanza. Superman and The Phantom Stranger team up to destroy a creature created by the Sherabite Stone--and by the actions of Superman himself!

Notes:

This issue starts with The underutilized Phantom Stranger (he needs a cool origin story and series). He is in a grave yard filled with criminals. The soil being littered with these evil men is consumed by their hate and is quite alive itself.The Phantom then tells us the story where Superman is battling a villainess called Arathaza. Somehow Supes is old not sure if this continued from last issue or not but cool any how. Faking like he's dead Supes grabs her power staff and destroys her (for now?). However, the staff destroyed in pieces one small jewel falls to the earth and lands in the graveyard we are talking about. P.S. is at Supe's apartment where he tells him he needs him however Supes resists and is tired and says that he "is no more invulnerable to the forces of magic than any other mortal". P.S. then transports Supes to the site where this big towering heap of dirt and stone stands before our cosmic duo.

Of course Superman jumps into action and fights desperately against the monster. The Phantom Stranger enters the Land of the Damned where he is tried by the dead memories for living. The Stranger proceeds to show the dead their victims while Supes is still battling the thing. The Stranger and the victims fight the dead and gain control of the jewel and Superman hears the Phantom and picks up the soil and heaves it into space where who knows where it lands. Supes comes back to land and destroys the jewel happy ending?
