DC Comics Reveals “Action Comics” #1000 Retailer Variants

A few days ago I shared the variant covers that span the years that “Action Comics” has been on the stands. These clever editions took a decade each to showcase the adventures of Superman, the Man Of Steel. Hopefully you saw that post and if not, just click HERE for the overview. You’re going to need this when you visit your local comic book retailer next month when issue #1000 hits the stands. In addition to those variants, many of the retailers will have their own exclusive editions and I’ve secured a stockpile of images for you to peruse. I’ve named the retailer and the artist involved in the variant cover and I’ve started with the two popular comic retail giants of our own Metropolis and then the rest are in alphabetical order. Check it out.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve said this before but I will quickly repeat it that I am not really the biggest collector of the numerous variant covers that hit the stands and this will be maintained for the upcoming “Action Comics” anniversary edition. The standard edition cover price is something like $9.99 and I am thinking that the super exclusive retailer editions will be even higher based on the limited quantities that will be available. Despite my stand on this kind of thing I cannot wait to read my copy when it hits next month. The countdown begins. What do you think of these variants and will you be purchasing any? Let me know down below.
