Indexer Notes

Page 8 is the alternate ending from the orginal "Death in the Family" story by Starlin and Aparo. Had the vote been for Jason Todd to live, this is the page that would have been printed. This is also an "Infinite Crisis" tie-in, though it is not marked as such on the cover. This issue shows how Superboy Prime was able to smash his way out of limbo and into the DC Universe.
