DC Comics is making a midnight release out of Action Comics #1000, out on Wednesday, the 18th of April. So that retailers can sell it – and all other DC Comics titles out that day – from midnight on the Tuesday instead.
This is something that Marvel and DC Comics are wont to do on occasion. Some retailers do. Plenty don’t.
DC Comics has also released how the Action Comics logo is going to look on all the variant covers – by adding it to the blank sketch cover variant.
Which looks like that. Here’s a reminder of how the rest of them look…
ACTION COMICS #1000 1930s Variant cover by Steve Rude (FEB180143)
ACTION COMICS #1000 1940s Variant cover by Michael Cho (FEB180144)
ACTION COMICS #1000 1950s Variant cover by Dave Gibbons (FEB180145)
ACTION COMICS #1000 1960s Variant cover by Michael Allred (FEB180146)
ACTION COMICS #1000 1970s Variant cover by Jim Steranko (FEB180147)
ACTION COMICS #1000 1980s Variant cover by Josh Middleton (FEB180148)
The ACTION COMICS #1000 1980s variant cover by Joshua Middleton (FEB180148) is coming soon. And the blank cover is… blank.
