Action Comics #1000 will be the biggest single comic book to hit stands since Superman #75 (Death of Superman).

As information is slowly revealed to build up hype for the highly anticipated book, writer Tom King revealed a page of art from the issue.

Drawn by artists Clay Mann and Jordie Bellaire, the page depicts Superman bathed in golden light, holding what appears to be a crystal of some kind. While there's no context or text included, the page displays some truly iconic imagery.

Action Comics #1000 hits newstands on April 18th, which, coincidently is the 80th anniversary of Action Comics #1, the first appearance of Superman. It looks like the stars have aligned for this event to land on new comic book day. The cover will feature a return of the (in)famous red trunks, which many say is as integral to the character as the spit curl.

The book will retail for $7.99 and feature 80 pages of story and art by some of the industry's top talent such as:

  • Brian Michael Bendis
  • Paul Dini
  • Geoff Johns
  • Dan Jurgens
  • Tom King
  • Jim Lee
  • Jerry Ordway
  • Scott Snyder
  • Curt Swann
  • Peter J. Tomasi
  • Marv Wolfman...and many more!
