Superman to get his red trunks back in Action Comics #1000

It was Lee, DC Entertainment's co-publisher, who designed Superman's costume for the 2011 New 52 relaunch that dropped the signature trunks and added a metallic sheen. It includes a 15-page story from current Superman creative teams Peter J. Tomasi and artist Pat Gleason, as well as another 15 page story from legendary Superman writer/artist Dan Jurgens. The cover, by Jim Lee, was released today showcasing the return to a somewhat updated version of the classic costume.

After a almost seven-year absence, Superman's signature red trunks will make their triumphant return April 18 in DC Comics' Action Comics #1000. This will see the DC Comics debut of Brian Michael Bendis, who will pen a 10 page tale with Jim Lee on art.

The "new accents" in question are, at this point, just the cuffs on his sleeves, which were introduced when Superman got his Rebirth costume and survived the "Superman Reborn" modifications to that suit.

"ACTION COMICS #1000 represents a watershed moment in the history of not just comic books, but entertainment, literature and pop culture", said Lee.

Originally created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Big Blue has since inspired fans in radio productions, animation, live action cinema and especially the realm of television, which is seemingly never bereft of Kal-El or his supporting characters for too long.

Action Comics #1000 arrives in April. And if that weren't enough, Marv Wolfman is penciled in to craft a story around never-before-seen artwork by way of Curt Swan! "Without this book, along with Siegel and Shuster's fertile imaginations and boundless creativity, the superhero's place in literature may have been wildly different, if not altogether nonexistent".

Perhaps most exciting, the issue will also feature a story by Superman: The Movie director Richard Donner along with Geoff Johns and art by Olivier Coipel.

Other talents involved with the issue include Paul Dini with José Luis García-López; Tom King with Clay Mann and Jordie Bellaire; Brad Meltzer with John Cassaday and Laura Martin; Louise Simonson with Jerry Ordway; Scott Snyder with Tim Sale and more to be announced. This celebratory comic book is just the beginning; this milestone will be recognized across the DC superhero line for the month of April with a series of Superman-themed variant covers and even more to come.
