On the Eve of the Release of the Landmark 1,000th Issue of 'Action Comics,' Top Superman Artists and Writers Discuss Superman's 80-Year Legacy as Part of 'Talks at Google' Series, Now Available Online

Eighty years after ACTION COMICS #1 first introduced the world to Superman and launched the entire superhero genre, fans, booksellers and local comic shops are all preparing to celebrate tomorrow’s release of the milestone ACTION COMICS #1000 periodical and ACTION COMICS: 80 YEARS OF SUPERMAN hardcover from DC.

Revisiting Superman: Earth One

The year was 2010. Fanboys and fangirls were living in a whole new world. Thanks to Iron Man, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, comic book movies were finally stepping away from being laughable participants in the film industry and becoming true Hollywood blockbusters. It seemed like comic book characters were suddenly being embraced by the public with open arms all over again (similar to the half-rise in comic book movies that sprung up after Tim Burton’s first Batman film).

Road to #1000: Who is Luthor?

A strong hero must always be confronted by a strong villain. Batman has the Joker, Green Lantern has Sinestro and Superman has Lex Luthor. Luthor’s comic book debut does not disappoint and features forward-looking comic storytelling that makes it seem like this is a modern comic book. So let’s put on your kevlar helmet and prepare for war as we continue our look at the ten must-read issues of Action Comics.

Superman: New Power, New Printing!

Last week, SUPERMAN #38 revealed the Man of Steel’s new power—the Super Flare. Unlocked during a battle with the super-villain Ulysses, the Super Flare is a destructive, large-scale blast of intense heat capable of incinerating everything within a quarter mile. It also—at least so far—depletes Superman’s cells of solar energy, leaving him powerless for about a day.
