Hardcover, special edition of Action Comics #1000 landing this September

Deluxe Edition

DC Comics is still relishing in the glow of “1000”, with multiple variant editions out there for Action Comics’ milestone right now. But there’s more to come, with an end-all edition hitting stores this coming September.

It’s time for… Action

There’s never been a celebration quite like this one, for a single issue of a comic. Though, it’s more than deserving, since Action Comics is the first ever comic to hit the heights of one thousand issues.

Publisher DC is continuing to go all out too, with a healthy dose of variants, each one celebrating the Man of Steel’s various eras. But there’s even more on the horizon. The comic book giant announced this week that a special hardcover book commemorating the event is coming.

Action Comics #1000 Deluxe Edition will land in stores this September, and offer much more than the base comic. Also included in its pages will be:

  • All eighty pages featuring stories and artwork by Brian Michael Bendis/Jim Lee, Dan Jurgens/Norm Rapmund, Peter J. Tomasi/Patrick Gleason, Tom King/Clay Mann, Geoff Johns & Richard Donner/Oliver Coipel, Brad Meltzer/John Cassaday and Laura Martin, Marv Wolfman/Curt Swan, Louise Simonson/Jerry Ordway and more.
  • A gallery of eighteen unique retailer variants (open to buy and retailer exclusives) and the eight decade-themed variant covers from artists including Dan Jurgens, Jim Lee, Dave Gibbons, Joshua Middleton and more.
  • Scripts for each of the stories featured in ACTION COMICS #1000
  • A side by side panel/page comparisons for the Peter J. Tomasi/Patrick Gleason story “Never Ending Battle”
  • The original art for the Marv Wolfman/Curt Swan story “An Enemy Within”
  • The Paul Levitz/Neal Adams story from ACTION COMICS: 80 YEARS OF SUPERMAN, “The Game”
  • Design sketches from Jim Lee
  • A complete reprint of the stories that started it all—the Superman stories ACTION COMICS #1 and 2 from 1938!

Sounds like plenty of goodies to warrant the price tag. Action Comics #1000 Deluxe Edition will run you $19.99 USD.
