Hi fellow supermanians :) i started reading comics and started a collection as well. I wanted to collect the Death, Funeral, and Return of Superman, I didn't know how many issues there are in total so i think it was best to ask the people who should know. I want to know the number of issues including tie-ins and all. I was wondering if there are any other notable titles i should grab. I prefer getting issues not TPB too.
I am currently reading Action Comics, Superman(though it has pained me so far we'll see how Lobdell does :) ), Superboy(eh Lobdell's tie-ins so much with other comics limit my enjoyment of reading Superboy on its own), and Supergirl. I am in the works of getting issues of All-Star Superman, my favorite so far. I have John Byrne's Man of Steel and Superman: Earth One, by Straczynski. I think i might need another origins story as well for current incarnation (recommendations?)
Side note: I like to read things that say Superman is AMAZING, like All-Star Superman, I don't mind having to do a little thinking to understand the greatness of Superman too. I like thinking :)
Is there anything fellow Superman fans believe i should add to my collection? Please add description too not just name of things recommended to get.
Possible Additions: JLA/AVENGERS (because issue 4 cover of Supes w/ Cap's shield and Thor's hammer is epic)
JLA (New 52)
