DC Reveals Solicits for Superman #1 and Action Comics #1001

Posted by April 13, 2018 Comment

In July, the tenure of “The Great One” Brian Michael Bendis on Action Comics and a rebooted Superman will begin with Action Comics #1001 and Superman #1. DC Comics has released those solicits as an EXCLUSSSIVE reveal on Sumner Redstone‘s ComicBook.com, EXCLUSSSIVE here used as a phrase that means “posted only on that outlet for about 10 minutes before every other comic book news site scrambles to copy and paste them into their own articles.” In that spirit, let’s start by copying and pasting the solicit for Superman #1 by Bendis, Ivan Reis, and Joe Prado:

Action Comics #1001

Bendis, a longtime architect of the Marvel Universe, left the company last year in a shocking move spurred on by a visit to a museum. Bleeding Cool soon reported that Bendis would be taking over Superman, and sure enough, it was soon announced that he would do just that, beginning with a story in Action Comics #1000 and continuing into a weekly six-issue Man of Steel mini-event in May and June (with a prelude in DC Nation #0). And come July, Bendis will begin writing both ongoing Superman comics, as seen in the solicits above.

It all begins in Action Comics #1000, on sale next week!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
