Happy birthday, Superman!

Published On April 18, 2018 | By Joe Gordon | Comics

Hard to believe, but one of the most iconic superheroes of all time is celebrating his eightieth birthday. As Action Comics hits the remarkable issue #1000 mark (an amazing run for any comic) we celebrate eighty years of Superman, the hero who made us believe a man can fly. Action Comics #1000 hits the racks this very day and we expect them – especially the variants – to fly off the shelf faster than a speeding bullet. I’m not going to post every single one here, but here is the main cover and a handful of the variants to enjoy (there are ten covers in all!)
