A celebration of 80 years packed into 80 pages.  Today, DC Comics celebrates the legacy of the Man of Steel himself as Superman soars into a landmark issue- Action Comics #1000!

This amazing oversized issue is a tribute to all things Superman, with a collection of 11 mini-stories featuring the Kryptonian hero we all know and love.  Action Comics #1000 features stories and art by an incredible roster of comic creating talent- including DC Comics newcomer Brian Michael Bendis, as well as John Cassaday, Olivier Coipel, Paul Dini, Jim Lee, Geoff Johns, and more!

DC has also assembled a super-team of variant cover artists, with 8 different covers spotlighting different decades of Superman action and style, including Michael Cho’s take on 1940’s superman, Jim Steranko on 70’s Superman, and Lee Bermejo covering the 2000’s.

And most of all- the red trunks have returned!

Sideshow’s artists have often been inspired by Superman stories throughout the ages, from the early days of Action Comics to the modern age.  A new Superman Premium Format™ Figure recently went up for pre-order, with an exclusive edition featuring Superman’s defeated foe Brainiac.
