Eighty years ago, the world’s first superhero was born in the pages of an exciting new comic magazine. The superhero was Superman, and the comic magazine was Action Comics, which has remained in publication ever since. Today, they both hit an unprecedented milestone as Action Comics becomes the first comic series to publish its 1000th issue. Available today in comic shops everywhere, Action Comics #1000 contains eighty pages of Superman stories from some of the biggest names in comics today. DC All Access pays tribute to this iconic series and spectacular new issue in this week’s episode, talking to many of the Action Comics #1000 contributors including new Action Comics and Superman writer Brian Michael Bendis, Scott Snyder, Dan Jurgens, Marv Wolfman and more.
