Superman's Iconic Red Trunks Return in DC's Action Comics #1000

Superman Action Comics

DC has revealed more details about Action Comics #1000 and they will make Superman fans very happy.

Not surprisingly, DC Comics intend on honoring his enduring legacy this spring with the historic release of Action Comics #1000, the first comic book to organically reach that milestone.

Action Comics #1,000 will hit comic book stores and digital outlets on Wednesday, April 18. Superman went away from the classic look for a while, including the textured, cinematic costume worn by Henry Cavill in last year's "Justice League" and other onscreen iterations. DC co-publisher Jim Lee re-imagined Superman's outfit for the New 52, and it became Kryptonian battle armor with a metallic sheen, which was also a departure from the classic design. The first look at Action Comics #1,000 reveals a cover by Lee that finally brings back the red trunks.

Elsewhere in said issue, two 15-page stories from two of DC's current and most popular creative teams are to be included, with Superman writer Peter J. Tomasi and artist Pat Gleason, as well as Action Comics writer and artist Dan Jurgens, continuing to put their stamp on the timeless icon.

Classic Superman creators Louise Simonson and Jerry Ordway will also share a tale, with more contributors set to be announced at a later date.

Despite decades of pop-culture mockery about wearing his "underwear" on the outside, Superman's iconic costume just hasn't felt complete since DC Comics ditched the Man of Steel's red trunks during it's 2011 "New 52" reboot. On top of that, DC veteran writer Marv Wolfman - who wrote the original mega-crossover superhero event series, 1985's Crisis on Infinite Earths - will script a new Superman story based on previously unpublished art from Curt Swan.

The comic will include bonus stories from "Superman" movie director Richard Donner and Geoff Johns, with art by Olivier Coipel.

"The one-thousandth issue of Action Comics is an incredible milestone in pop culture and a testament to the vision of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster", added DC publisher Dan DiDio. In addition to that, titles across DC's superhero line will feature Superman-themed variants in the month of April.
