Landmark 1,000th Issue Features Jim Lee Cover Revealing New Costume

Brian Michael Bendis Debuts First Story for DC DC Veteran Writer Marv Wolfman to Script Story Based On Unpublished Art by Golden and Silver Age Icon Curt Swan All-Star Lineup of Contributors Includes Richard Donner, Geoff Johns, Peter J. Tomasi, Pat Gleason, Dan Jurgens, Brad Meltzer, Louise Simonson, Jerry Ordway, Tom King, Scott Snyder and More

DC is going all-out to celebrate the one-thousandth issue of ACTION COMICS—the longest continually published comic book of its kind in history, the series that introduced Superman to the world and the title that launched the superhero genre. The Jim Lee-drawn cover features a new costume that integrates a variety of classic and new elements, including the Man of Steel’s trademark red trunks.

“ACTION COMICS #1000 represents a watershed moment in the history of not just comic books, but entertainment, literature and pop culture,” said Lee. “There’s no better way to celebrate Superman’s enduring popularity than to give him a look that combines some new accents with the most iconic feature of his classic design.”

Available at comics retailers and digitally on April 18, ACTION COMICS #1000 features the DC debut of acclaimed writer Brian Michael Bendis in a 10-page Superman story featuring art by DC publisher and celebrated artist Jim Lee. This milestone issue will also include two 15-page stories from two of DC’s current and most popular talent teams: SUPERMAN writer Peter J. Tomasi and artist Pat Gleason, as well as ACTION COMICS writer and artist Dan Jurgens.

“The one-thousandth issue of ACTION COMICS is an incredible milestone in pop culture and a testament to the vision of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster,” said DC publisher Dan DiDio. “Without this book, along with Siegel and Shuster’s fertile imaginations and boundless creativity, the superhero’s place in literature may have been wildly different, if not altogether nonexistent.”

This must-have collector’s item comic book will also feature previously unpublished art from Curt Swan, whose dynamic, iconic style many consider the definitive look for the Man of Steel throughout comics’ Golden and Silver Ages. Acclaimed DC writer Marv Wolfman will script a story based on this never-before-seen content. In addition, the comic will include a collection of memorable bonus stories from some of the most celebrated names in comics and entertainment.

Contributors to this once-in-a-lifetime issue include legendary Superman movie director Richard Donner and New York Times best-selling writer Geoff Johns, with art by Olivier Coipel. Other contributing creative teams will include Paul Dini with José Luis García-López; Tom King with Clay Mann and Jordie Bellaire; Brad Meltzer with John Cassaday and Laura Martin; Louise Simonson with Jerry Ordway; Scott Snyder with Tim Sale and more to be announced. This celebratory comic book is just the beginning; this milestone will be recognized across the DC superhero line for the month of April with a series of Superman-themed variant covers and even more to come. Check out the website at www.dccomics.com or the DC YouTube channel for the latest news regarding Krypton’s last son and his elevation to pop culture icon.

Diamond Select Toys Superman Resin Bust review.

image

By Steven Biscotti

​Diamond Select Toys is at it again with their DC animated collectibles line.  This time it isn’t for The Dark Knight though.  This time it’s for none other than the grandfather of all super heroes – The Man of Steel himself, Superman!  

image

Diamond Select Toys excited fans and collectors when they revealed their plans for Warner Bros. popular DC animated series like “Batman” and “Justice League” during Toy Fair 2015.  The one line noticeably absent, just like DC Collectibles, was products from “Superman: The Animated Series.”  It was something that I took notice of immediately as I’m not only a fan of The Last Son of Krypton but also a big fan of “Superman: The Animated Series.”  When it was finally revealed that we’d be getting collectibles based off of Bruce Timm’s successful follow up to “Batman: The Animated Series”, I was very happy.

image

So far Diamond Select Toys (DST) have released four statues and busts based off of “Superman: The Animated Series.”  We have two Femme Fatales vinyl statues of Supergirl, one resin bust of her, and now one of her cousin, Kal-El.  Superman is undoubtedly the hero most collectors and fans have been waiting for since the release of Batman last summer 2015.  Let me tell you, he was well worth the wait.

image

Diamond Select Toys’ Superman resin bust stands at 6″ tall and has some weight to him.  Just like the Supergirl resin bust statue that released in March, both kryptonians are featured a top a base bringing to mind the art deco of the animated series – a futuristic city building in Metropolis.  Featuring a sculpt by Varner Studios, the Superman resin bust captures the charm of the animated series and perfectly captures the identifiable art design of Bruce Timm’s Superman.  If you liked the animated series, this resin bust is a must have and if you just like Superman, the bust is quite simply so Superman-ish, that you’ll find it difficult to pass him up at your local comic shop next time you’re there.

image

The Superman Resin Bust by Diamond Select Toys is available now and retails for $59.99
