Warner Brothers, DC Comics Publishing celebrates a landmark anniversary, Action Comics issue #1000 on April 2018, and also their titular character, Superman’s 80th anniversary. Superman was created by writer, Jerry Siegel and artist, Joe Shuster, high school students living in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1933. Superman debuted in DC Comics’ Action Comics #1, cover-dated June 1938. Since that time, with multiple successful appearances in radio serials, newspaper strips, television programs, films, and a plethora of games, Superman has become an international icon and is the established superhero archetype in the American comic book industry. Superman has fascinated scholars, cultural theorists, commentators, and critics alike exploring the character’s role and impact in the United States and worldwide.
Action Comics #1000 is poised to make history as an anniversary issue heralding the longest running comic book in publishing annals anywhere in the world. Concurrently, it will mark the 80th Anniversary of Superman, the first superhero ever created and published for the first time in Action Comics issue #1. This historic 1,000th issue will have a special Dynamic Forces release signed by Dan Jurgens, one of the writer/artists most closely associated with Superman in his entire 80-year history.
To date, the best selling Superman comic book of all time was the “Death of Superman” storyline that made international headlines and met with enormous success, and whose work also included Dan Jurgens – Superman’s longest running writer/artist. All of the DC Comics Superman titles gained international exposure, reaching the top of the comics sales charts and selling out overnight. The event was widely covered by national and international news media.
Legendary 25-year Superman creator, writer and artist Dan Jurgens is leading the creative team for this giant sized anniversary issue of Action Comics #1000. There have been many talented writers and artists that have contributed to the Superman mythos over the years, but few have been as historically impactful as Dan Jurgens, who has served as both writer and artist at various points in Superman publishing history from 1989 to the present. Dan Jurgens created the villain Doomsday, one of Superman’s most iconic nemesis and the Death of Superman Storyline culminated in his series run.
The legendary writer and artist has made many important contributions to the world of comic books throughout his career, but it’s his work on the seminal “Death of Superman” storyline that has proven to be the most influential and widely read. As one of the writers and artists behind that legacy-defining storyline and the author and artist of its final issue, Jurgens’ work on the character can be felt in nearly every Superman story we’ve seen since. His work has earned him several awards over the years, including the 1994 National Cartoonists Society Award for Best Comic Book.
