Variant cover #999....I'm beginning to feel like I should draw a cover...I guess that's what the blanks are for...



ACTION COMICS 1000 FELIPE MASSAFERA ULTIMATE EDITION!

In celebration of the 1,000th issue of Action Comics, we are proud to present our variant with cover art by Felipe Massafera, featuring the timeless conflict between Superman and Zod.

This version goes on sale next Wednesday April 18th at 2pm EST, the same day Action Comics 1000 releases, and will be sold as 250 individually numbered CBCS 9.8 books.

As a special thanks to all of our customers who have strongly supported us, each ultimate edition is priced at 119.95, by far the most affordable ultimate edition we have ever offered, despite the 8 dollar cover price.

No raw copies of this book will be available for purchase from us or our site partners at any time.

Each book will also carry notation that CBCS took possession of the entire number of copies ordered by us, and permanently disposed of any overage.

Whereas it is industry standard practice for publishers to award a small number of comp copies of every cover to those who worked on the project which are outside the scope of this offering, our ultimate edition affords you the opportunity to acquire by far the rarest version of Action Comics 1,000, featuring a brand new villain Rogel and 80 pages of story.

On sale Summary:

Wednesday April 18th 2 pm EST
Ultimate CBCS 9.8 Edition, limited to 250 individually numbered copies available for purchase.
No raw copies available for purchase
Retail Price $119

This is from Action Comics #1000, but the place I got it from says it is interior art. So, I guess it didn't make the cut? So they just put it in a gallery or something.

I was actually hoping someone would do an homage to The Secret Years #3, which was a fantastic cover back in the day. It's a shame, because this one is better than most of the ones they went with.

And here is yet ANOTHER cover that would have been better than most of them.

Seeing George Perez's goof cover makes me sad for him, assuming it's due to his illness. But here's a classic artist who apparently hasn't lost a step: José Luis García López. He'll be at HeroesCon this year, and if this damn comic wasn't an artificially rare 1:100 I'd buy five and get 'em all signed.

This is DC Nation #0, by the way. It's the thing they're doing where they cancel a bunch of comics that are selling really well and then start over with new concepts and groups and shit. And lots more number #1's. Nothing we haven't seen ad nauseum, right guys?

Got the notification this morning that my hardcover shipped from Amazon.

Hoping to pick up a reader copy of the HC in the future.

If the Ross Litho becomes a cover, I might have to get it. Otherwise, I’m not too interested.

I always like the add-on of "Final covers may vary!"

Pot luck anyone? "Jellos, salads, and potato salads may vary."

*shrugs*

...52% off?....yeah....off your Dynamic mark up!.....sheez.....

Not picking up any at my lcs...waiting for my order confirmation from forbidden planet (set of jock covers, signs). Even though I preordered they won't charge my card until they've computed the shipping costs. Jock signing is next week (22nd?) so it won't ship for another week...I can wait, not all that excited.

Just arrived. The “Deluxe hardcover” says nothing about 1000 issues on the cover?

Ok.

I will be going to a signing by Jerry Ordway up at Cave Comics in CT this Saturday. Since the copy I ordered from Westfield Comics won't be in this week, I'll probably have to buy a (different) copy for the signature.

I got this one below at the midnight release and I'm picking up the blank cover later today; I already have a commission in mind

11am isn't coming soon enough....

Hmmmmmm....not bad JLS.....$7.99 price tag isn't what I was expecting...I guess they figured that they could get a $1.00 for every 10 years, huh?

lol it seems like it, right! With the 500K sold figure they quote recently, that means they rake in just shy of $4M (Before costs)

Mot much of a selection at the first LCS....BLANK and two covers.

I went with the 80s Middleton variant....due to limits of one per person.

The JLS variant...not at the LCS I went.

Bummer...I would have picked that up.

I went with 30's Steve Rude cover. My regular LCS was out of cover As, so I may stop at another on the way home. Still underwhelmed by these. Debating a sketch cover, but realistically I doubt I'll ever jump through all the hoops of getting a commission. I would love to have a Dan Jurgens sketch though.
