During the mid to latter part of the 80's I remember there being several chronicles and events with some I could have sworn were cross publisher tied or cross series tied as well as the super man doomsday event and its various short term seudo superman spin offs. What were these big series called that took place? I remember them happening and creating a huge stir with people, every week on delivery day there was always 15 - 20 of us waiting at Daves Comics in Ann Arbor MI ( long since closed thanks to the decline of comics in the 90's ) and we were all waiting to read the chronicles as well as the Doomsday series.
This may have crossed publishers or may not but it was big enough that it could have.
I do remember that it tied various comic series together such as xmen tied into superman and batman ect ect.
It would have been around the time of the Doomsday series that killed of Superman for the first time ( god now how good of a movie would that be with doomsday? )
