Third Eye Faithful, there’s some things in comics that are just plain special, and one of those things is the legacy of ACTION COMICS.
Over half a century ago, ACTION COMICS #1 changed the game entirely when it comes to the medium we all love and cherish so much, and things haven’t been the same ever since.
Now, with comics longest running title coming up on it’s iconic 1,000th issue — we knew we had to do something extra special to celebrate, and with the return of the Man of Steel’s iconic costume, red trunks and all, we had no choice but to call it Action Wednesday at Third Eye!
On Wednesday 4/18/18, we’ll be celebrating 1,000 issues of ACTION COMICS with a special edition release of ACTION COMICS #1000, which features the biggest line-up of all-star comics talent we’ve seen yet.
We’re talking GEOFF JOHNS (DOOMSDAY CLOCK), we’re talking SCOTT SNYDER (DARK NIGHTS METAL), we’re talking BRAD MELTZER (IDENTITY CRISIS), and yes, we’re talking BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS’s first ever DC Comics work!
Not to mention that this is a glimpse at what will be Bendis’s ongoing DC series, MAN OF STEEL, a new mini-series where the comics superstar responsible for iconic hits like DAREDEVIL, ALIAS, ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN and more, will be redefining SUPERMAN as we know him for the modern age.

Meet writer TOM KING (BATMAN, MISTER MIRACLE, ACTION #1000, and more!) and get your ACTION COMICS #1000 signed!


For something this big, we’re pulling out all the stops, and bringing in our favorite comic writer in the biz today: TOM KING! He’ll be on hand signing copies of ACTION COMICS #1000 (which features a very, very cool story by Tom in there)! Make sure to visit and get your ACTION #1000 signed between 12AM & 1AM!
