LOOKING GOOD FOR AN 80 YEAR OLD - THE DELUXE EDITION OF ACTION COMICS #1000...
Copyright DC COMICS
I have to be honest and say that I don't consider the drawing of SUPERMAN on the above cover to be particularly flattering. His face is too fat, his legs are too thick, and he looks a bit on the short side. That said, however, if you're a Supes fan, this is a book you'll want. It's a hardcover, deluxe edition of ACTION COMICS #1000, with loads of extras, including all the variant covers, a bonus story by PAUL LEVITZ and NEAL ADAMS, scripts, cover sketches and the very first Superman story from Action Comics #1 (along with its cover). Not that I needed to type any of that, as you can read it on the back of the dustjacket at the foot of this post. (Gotta fill space some way though, eh?) If you missed the 1000th ish when it came out last year, console yourself with this volume. Dithering? Then check out the illustrations below and see what you're missing.
(Pssst! I got my copy for £14.99 from WATERSTONES. Considering the actual comic cost me £7, the book is well worth it!)
