DC Announces Action Comics 1000th Issue Details Revealed.



DC Co-Publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio revealed on Thursday more details about the upcoming Action Comics #1000 scheduled to release in March 2018 at the "Meet the Publishers" panel at NYCC. The story will be co-written by Action Comics writer Dan Jurgens and Superman writer Peter Tomasi. Doomsday Clock writer Geoff Johns and Superman: The Movie director Richard Donner will also contribute stories to Action Comics #1000.

To celebrate Superman's 80th anniversary in May 2018, DC comics will release a hardcover in 2018 that will come with a number of iconic Superman stories as well as a historical essay by guest editor Paul Levitz, a cover gallery of all 1000 issues of Action Comics and an unpublished Superman story from the 1940's by Superman co-creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.



In 1938, two kids from Cleveland, Ohio - Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel - created a character they thought would represent the best of humanity in a troubled time with few beacons of hope for the future. That character went on to become one of the brightest and most well-known creations in all of pop culture: Superman. And it all began in ACTION COMICS. DC is proud to celebrate the 1000th edition of this seminal title that created the entire superhero genre - bringing joy, hope, and inspiration to Superman fans around the world for 80 years.
