Jim Lee is drawing Brian Bendis‘ story for Action Comics #1000. And rather than capping the end of a story, being a one-shot story such as Tom King and Clay Mann‘s end-of-the-Earth short, the Bendis/Lee story is intended as the first part of Bendis’ run on the character.
And it begins with a bit of an impact…
…knocked from one side of Metropolis to the other and causing considerable property damage in the process. And Jim Lee also let people watch him create it from Brian’s script – and answer questions on Twitch in the process. The whole six hour plus video can be watched below.
Why, what else were you planning to do today?
Action Comics #1000 is published on Wednesday 18th April and from midnight the Tuesday before, from participating retailers.
