Action Comics #1000 Delayed Month To Coincide With True 80th Anniversary

Why not just pick that date in the first place?

Showing a complete lack of foresight, DC Comics has delayed Action Comics #1000 from March 2018 to April 18, 1938, the 80th anniversary of the debut of the comic down to the day. DC intern Vlad Kozinkerov talked to The Outhouse about the delay.

"They tell me, Vlad, find new date for Action Comic," said lowly DC intern Vlad Kozinkerov. "So that is what I do."

We asked Vlad why the issue wasn't originally solicited for the 80th anniversary and was solicited for a month earlier.

"Vlad not know. Vlad only intern. DC executives much smarter than me," Vlad said.

The special issue will be released as two separate versions.

The first, revealed at NYCC, is a 168 page $30 hardcover, retrospective of Superman's history revisiting classic stories from over the decades. It will also include literary essays from Pulitzer Prize winner Jules Feiffer and Paul Levitz and a poster of all 1,000 cover to Action Comics. The hardcover volume will be published on April 17, 2018 as Action Comics #1000: 80 Years of Superman.

Meanwhile the floppy version of Action Comics #1000 is written by Peter Tomasi and Dan Jurgens, that will draw on all kinds of talent from the comics industry, including a story written by Geoff Johns and Richard Donner. This floppy edition is oversized at $5.99 and is set to release in March 2018.
