OVERSIZED 48-PAGE SUPERMAN ONE-SHOTS COMING IN MAY

ACTION COMICS SPECIAL #1 and SUPERMAN SPECIAL #1 Celebrate Three Prolific Superman Storytellers, Feature Bonus Content 

The creative talent of ACTION COMICS writer Dan Jurgens and the SUPERMAN team of Patrick Gleason and Peter J. Tomasi have brought legions of Superman fans story after story filled with action, humor, emotion and candor--traits that have continued to present Superman as an enduring symbol of hope, optimism, truth and justice. This May, the conclusions to their epic runs serve as the centerpieces of two special one-shot issues.

Road to #1000: A Super-Kiss For a Super-Man!

ACTION COMICS is soon to be the very first comic book to ever hit 1,000 issues. Much like Superman bounding into existence as the first superhero, his own book will be the first comic of its kind. To celebrate this momentous occasion, I’ve put together a list of my ten must-read issues of Action Comics.

This Just Happened: The Truth About Mr. Oz is Revealed

There’s never been a family fight quite like what we’ve been seeing in “The Oz Effect,” the pivotal Superman storyline that wrapped up this week in ACTION COMICS #991. Since its start, we’ve learned that Mr. Oz is really Jor-El, Superman’s Kryptonian father, who didn’t actually die during the destruction of Krypton, but found himself sent to Earth where he witnessed some of mankind’s brutal tendencies firsthand.

DC TO COMMEMORATE THE 1000TH ISSUE OF ACTION COMICS WITH STAR-STUDDED CELEBRATION IN 2018

During DC’s kick off “Meet the Publishers” panel at New York Comic Con today, Publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee announced there will be a star-studded celebration to commemorate the 1000th issue of ACTION COMICS, the longest running and first-ever superhero comic to reach 1000! The Publishers also revealed a new commemorative logo for the celebration.

In March 2018, DC will publish several special titles to honor the milestone:

Counting Down to Doomsday Clock with Superman: Reborn

The past year of Rebirth has represented a lot of dramatic change for just about every character in the DC Universe, but maybe none more so than Superman. This, of course, pretty much goes to follow. After all, he’s the character who is really at the center of it all, even before the tectonic shifts of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1.

This Just Happened: The Loss of a Loved One

The truth hurts. That’s what they say, at least, and after reading this week’s startling SUPERMAN #18, we definitely believe it.

Written by Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason and drawn by Gleason with assists from Mick Gray and John Kalisz, Superman #18 officially kicks off “Superman: Reborn,” the four-part crossover storyline that promises to finally reveal the secrets surrounding Rebirth’s Man of Steel.

Jason's Picks: Detective Comics and Mystery Machines

We’re back with another Jason’s Picks column! Enough of you out there in comic book internet land liked my musings and choices, so Amanda Waller had to allow me to write another one!

Let me activate my brain, which has been cultivated from many episodes of hosting DC All Access, to provide you with the answers of what DC graphic novels you should pick up at your local comic book shop this month!
 

Superman vs. Godslayer: Could the Bad Guy be Right?

Some of Superman’s most interesting adversaries throughout the years have been ones who desire to do good, but go about it the wrong way. People call Superman “the big blue boy scout” for a reason—he doesn’t just see that justice is done, he’s also unwavering when it comes to making sure it’s done in a fair and humane way, with respect for life and civil liberties. At times, this has put him at odds with fellow heroes like Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman, who sometimes may take a more pragmatic approach to doing what’s right.
