Dan Jurgens’ Action Comics #1000 Variant Explores Superman’s History

Dan Jurgens’ Action Comics #1000 Variant Explores Superman’s History

The historic Action Comics #1000 hits comic book shelves next month. As part of the celebration, variant covers for this special 80th anniversary issue have slowly been trickling in from the industry’s top artistic talent. One such variant was illustrated by Dan Jurgens for Dynamic Forces. The variant highlights the Man of Steel’s visual evolution over the last 80 years.

Superman (otherwise known as mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent) debuted in Action Comics #1 in 1938, establishing the ultimate superhero archetype that continues to be recognized to this day. Beginning with the Golden Age of the late 1930s, Jurgens’ cover for this oversized anniversary issue spans the character’s incredible history.

The cover includes references to the death of Superman’s home planet of Krypton, as well as the iconic hero’s own death (at the hands of Doomsday) and eventual resurrection. Jurgens boasts a particular attachment to this grim period in the character’s history, as he penned the very Death of Superman arc portrayed on the variant cover.

Beyond that, Jurgens is no stranger to writing and illustrating the Superman mythos — he contributed heavily to various Superman series in the ’90s and is currently the writer for Action Comics.

Starring new stories by creators such as Brian Michael Bendis and a never-before-seen illustrated story by the legendary Curt Swan, Action Comics #1000 is out April 18.

Dark Horse to Publish Incredibles 2 Tie-In Comics

The Incredibles aren’t just returning to theaters. This summer, Dark Horse Comics will release a graphic novel and a three-issue miniseries that tie into Disney and Pixar’s upcoming Incredibles 2 film.

Liz Marsham and Nicoletta Baldari’s 48-page Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles 2: Heroes at Home graphic novel “finds Dash and Violet doing their best to help out at home while their mom and dad — Mr. and Mrs. Incredible — take on new and very different jobs. First, Dash and Violet must secretly go into Super mode when they interrupt criminal activity on a routine grocery trip to pick up some essentials! Then, helping out at home, their efforts to keep up with their chores are unknowingly obstructed by the innocent mischief of their little brother, Jack-Jack!”

The graphic novel will collect stories geared towards younger readers. These stories will follow Violet, Dash and Jack-Jack as they “balance their everyday lives with being secret Supers.”

Written by Christos Gage and Landry Q. Walker and illustrated by Gurihiru, J.Bone, Andrea Greppi and Roberta Zanotta, Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles 2: Crisis in Mid-Life! & Other Stories collects part 1 of “Crisis in Mid-Life!,” part 1 of “Bedtime Story” and a standalone Jack-Jack story. Each issue boasts two original ongoing stories, with Jack-Jack-focused shorts in issues #1 and #2. The stories are set during and after the events of the film. According to the miniseries description,

While dedicating a new submarine, Mr. Incredible is interrupted by the dastardly Bomb Voyage — who is intent on crushing the crowd of onlookers underneath the sub! Mr. Incredible struggles to save the day, which has him questioning his super powers — could something be wrong? In “Bedtime Story” part 1, Bob tells Jack-Jack a bedtime story that has Violet and Dash calling foul: this battle from his glory days seems too amazing to be true. Then in his own adventure, at a visit to the park, Jack-Jack uses his powers to overcome a worthy opponent!

That these Incredibles 2 comics landed at Dark Horse comes as something of a surprise, as Disney owns Marvel. However, since IDW is also publishing comics for Disney franchises like DuckTales, Tangled and Big Hero 6, it appears as though Disney isn’t afraid to share the love and spread its licenses to other comic publishers.

Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles 2: Heroes at Home graphic novel goes on sale for $7.99 on June 12, just days before the film hits theaters. The first issue of Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles 2: Crisis in Mid-Life! & Other Stories goes on sale July 11.
