For 80 years, people all across the world have been thrilled by the adventures of Superman and it all started in the pages of 1938’s ACTION COMICS #1. DC is marking this amazing milestone throughout 2018 with features, events and two publications celebrating ACTION COMICS’ 1000th issue.
In 1938, two kids from Cleveland, Ohio— Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel— created a character they thought would represent the best of humanity in a troubled time with few beacons of hope for the future. That character went on to become one of the brightest and most well-known creations in all of pop culture: Superman. And it all began in ACTION COMICS. DC is proud to celebrate the 1000th issue of this seminal title that created the entire superhero genre, bringing joy, hope and inspiration to Superman fans around the world for 80 years.
