Action Comics #1000
Haven't done one of these in a while, but I'm an anniversary issue freak and it doesn't get more anniversarey than #1000, does it? (Might do another one for AMAZING #800, if only to see how many Dell'Otto pieces retailers are ready to dig up.) As always, I will be focusing on the store exclusives, as the official variants are easy to find.
For Action Comics #1000, the challenge is to try to make Superman interesting … I mean, if I ask for a badass Batman cover, you already thought of at least 5, hell, you probably have your own top 10. When it comes to Superman, it gets a bit more difficult, doesn't it? At least it feels like that to me. Don't get me wrong, there are quite a few legendary Superman covers, but I don't know if it's the costume design or what, but it's hard to make Superman look badass. And if you're thinking “It's Superman, he doesn't need to be a badass“, I would have to agree. Let me know below what your favorite Superman covers are and if you convince me I will write an article on them, promise!
Anyway, plenty of talent worked on these, results are a mixed bag:
As always, if I forgot any let me know in the comments section!!!
