Action Comics #1000 Release Variant Covers Celebrating Each Dynamic Decade Of Superman!

by Oliver MacNamee

With the highly anticipated Action Comics #1000 (well, in my household, anyway) only a few weeks off, I was excited to hear the DC are to release a slew of variant covers by some of the very top talent in comics today to help celebrate not only this landmark edition, but also Supes’s 80th birthday too.

Here’s a peek at the seven shared by DC, and the full list of creators too, and which decade they’re illustrating. My favourite? It juts has to be Mike Allred’s sixties-inspired Action Comics cover. It’s juts so evocative of the era.


1940s by Michael Cho (BATMAN BLACK AND WHITE)

1950s by Dave Gibbons (WATCHMEN)

1960s by Michael Allred (BUG!: THE ADVENTURES OF FORAGER)

1970s by Jim Steranko

1990s by Dan Jurgens (ACTION COMICS) and Kevin Nowlan (HAWKMAN: FOUND)
