I like the terminology you use, by the way, calling it Action 1k. Also, can I go back in time and take a tour of the DC offices? I would love some free art. (Disney and Warner Bros used to do this, too, with animation cels.)


Thanks for that, Ted and you're absolutely right. It's funny, I was going back through to add some words to make the piece at least 300 words and I added that in kind of on a whim and an afterthought lol I just took it out!

Visiting the offices back then would have been an amazing experience for sure

Checking on the usual suspects (Frankie’s, comic mint, unknown comics, etc) I’m not seeing any exclusives out there yet. DC may have put the kibosh on that for this issue

Just ordering ONE of each standard cover puts me at $79.

My LCS is pretty good to me. This is still gonna hurt seeing as I have yet to encounter all the 3rd party variants as well lol.

I was hoping to order multiples of each variant to ensure 9.8s, but at ten variations to start, nope.

@shrewbeer Yeah, that would be quite painful! With the dilution of the overall print run by the number of covers, who knows which ones will be hot, especially since all of them haven't been revealed, we don't know how retailers will order, etc... The main, Jim Lee, cover will be overprinted, but it will sell-out, of course. With the page count, the spines are going to be a mess. The solicit doesn't say anything about it being prestige format, so it's going to be tough to get a 9.8 without sifting through copies.

So.... fun times! I think I'll end up pre-ordering one main and wing-it on the rest. Bwa ha ha.

I just caught this... continue thinking positive man. We're all rooting for you!


Probably kill Superman (again) in issue 1010 or whatever number they get to. And play it up big like the end of Life With Archie.


no. i don't think they will "kill" him permanently. They will just encase him in adamantium metal with him holding a life giving stone for about three years. and while this is going on, or not going on, because its ridiculous to do anything while you're encased in the hardest metal on earth, they will "hint" that superman is not dead by having a brand new series called "Old Man Kent". i am telling you, i should copy right this material because "no one" has ever done it.

@JustThatGuy Well, with the success of OML and Old Man Hawkeye (Old Man Barton), and even how people like old Bruce in Batman Beyond, I don't see why they don't keep Old Clark around from Earth 2 or Kingdom Come or wherever it is they decided he's from with all of the events... Did they kill him off? I haven't kept track of his comings and goings this time around. Oops! Regardless, why not give him a depressing series?

I'm waiting to see what a Dell Otto cover looks like. Probably will buy a couple of those. I would buy those in the blind (sight unseen). Not impressed so far with the covers, but so many I haven't seen yet.

I ordered the Steranko and Rude covers. I don’t like the Lee cover.

Do we at least know if we're getting an Action Comics #1 homage cover? We kinda have to, right?

Steve Rude is doing the 1930’s cover, so I’m hoping that’s an homage cover.

Preview are due in 5 days, its a bit irritating the covers have not been revealed yet; especially given the price point.

Yes!
I may....MAY...buy the Steranko cover, if, and only if, my shop has it - otherwise I'll skip Superman like I usually do

It's in previews catalogue this month. Just order what you want ahead of time. Make it better for you.

Can someone start a list of all the variant covers, both direct and exclusives...and keep it updated in a thread (maybe this one) as more covers get added? I'd love to see that.

I wonder if Action 1000 will top Star Wars issues #1 (Marvel, 2016?) for most variant covers for a first printing. Anyone know what that total was? It's up there.

Reading through the rest of my preview book this month, it does say that Action #1000 will be square bound prestige format.

I haven't seen any pictures of any variants either. I only posted that to add to the list of possible variants. Midtown Comics just announced it.

I'm wondering if there will be a LaRosa cover.

That may be a limited one if he does.

My LCS is offering 25% when you pre-order all 10 covers. That's all 10 covers for $59.99--save $20. I'm in. I'm more of a traditionalist. I don't think change is always a good thing. Popeye, Bugs Bunny and Superman. For me, I say leave the OG's alone. If someone wants to play around with them for a while and reimagine them, that's fine. Just change them back when you're done

Summit comics just announced a variant by George Perez. EVERYONE is getting in on this action.

Also of note, they said “we will share the cover as soon as we are legally allowed”; which explains the dark we’ve all been in so far.

They posted this cool poster as well

Hey there. @Pacoma7623. I am driving through there and heading to Dorr this weekend. I see Lansing, Grand Rapids and Wyoming have a few shops. Looking for older high grade Bronze and/or a place with a larger new book selection that carries multiple of DC A and B covers and variants. What would be your recommendations for places to check out?
