Action Comics 987 and 988 covers

Twitter Facebook Pinterest Google+ Stumbleupon LinkedIn


I’ve always thought that if you read only one DC comic a month it should be Action Comics, saying that right now DC is investing a lot in it’s oldest running series and publishing it twice a month now.

Heading towards the monumental 1000th issue which should hit shelves around February 2017 and I can’t wait, it’s one series which has never failed to deliver a classic DC story in my eyes.

Issues 987 and 988 of Action Comics will feature those amazing lenticular covers which DC have been perfecting over the last few years. The ones they did for the Batman / Flash cross over featuring that iconic Watchmen button badge were instant sell out’s.

The two covers for Action Comics give us the long awaited answer to who is Oz, the guy who many fans including me thought was Watchmen’s Ozymandias.

It looks like DC have thrown a curve ball on that one and delivered an amazing alternative answer.  Jor-El  aka Superman’s birth father has survived the explosion of Krypton.

From what we can see in the cover it looks like Jor-El was snatched from his wifes arms the second Krypton exploded.

It’s an amazing twist and I imagine it will make these two lenticular covers even more in demand.
