Superman #1 And Action Comics #1001 Covers And Solicitations Revealed!

This news was reported first at with their exclusive.

Here’s the first look at the solicitations for Brian Michael Bendis’ Action Comics #1,001 and Superman #1. The regular issues are scheduled to release following the events of Bendis’ wildly popular miniseries The Man of Steel.

The first story arc in Superman appears to be dealing with a massive global shift that Superman is trying to fix. Whether or not this will be reflected in other DC comics or stay limited to Superman titles is yet to be seen.

Bendis’s signing with DC comes after years of creating a huge legacy including his creation of Miles Morales and Jessica Jones. His first DC comic book is to be released next week with Action Comics #1000 as he is one of the contributors to the anthology-style issue.

Following Action Comics #1000, current Action and Superman writers Dan Jurgens and Peter J. Tomasi will exit their respective titles to make way for Bendis. First, however, Bendis is launching a six-issue weekly series titled The Man of Steel which mirrors the John Byrne approach to Superman. After The Man of Steel, Byrne took over the Superman titles as well. He launched a new Superman #1 in 1986, which was considered a bold move. It set high standards for an ever growing and changing industry: Bendis’s Superman #1 is the third relaunch since 2011.

The Solicitations and Covers are below:
