Action Comics landmark 1000th issue features new/old Superman costume

Superman's Classic Costume Will Return in Action Comics #1000

But with the momentous Action Comics #1000 on the horizon, it's time to change once again, and in this case, it means a return to a more traditional Superman costume, with Jim Lee given the honors of bringing back the red trunks, while keeping a few movie-esque flourishes.

After recently signing an exclusive deal with DC Comics, he'll be inspired by a whole new pool of heroes and villains. Action Comics #1000 will mark the first time the Superman costume has had underwear on the outside in almost seven years.

Love him or hate him, you have to acknowledge that every superhero you admire today owes their existence to the Man of Steel - and it all started back in 1938 with the release of Action Comics #1. The cover for the issue (see the artwork below), as illustrated by Jim Lee, shows Superman back in his red underwear for the first time in the comics in almost a decade. In those pages, we saw the debut of Superman, who soon went on to completely take over that title and headline an ongoing series of his own.

"Action Comics #1000 represents a watershed moment in the history of not just comic books, but entertainment, literature and pop culture", said Lee.

Action Comics #1000 will boast an all-star lineup of creators. Swan is one of history's most iconic Superman artists, giving the character his signature style throughout the so-called "Silver Age" of comic books - that would be the "50s, '60s, '70s... basically everything up until Wolfman and artist George Pérez radically restructured the DC Universe with Crisis on Infinite Earths!".

The supersized issue will feature stories from a number of creators, including the first new DC work of writer Brian Michael Bendis, who joined the company after nearly two decades at Marvel last November.

As part of this event, DC will also be publishing an Action Comics hardcover companion book edited by one-time DC publisher Paul Levitz. It includes a 15-page story from current Superman creative teams Peter J. Tomasi and artist Pat Gleason, as well as another 15 page story from legendary Superman writer/artist Dan Jurgens. Like Marvel's Jack Kirby, Siegel and Shuster were denied credit for their magnificent creation for decades.

"The one-thousandth issue of Action Comics is an incredible milestone in pop culture and a testament to the vision of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster", added DC publisher Dan DiDio.

Action Comics #1,000 hits stands and digital platforms April 18.
