After a thousand issues, DC’s Action Comics has officially been awarded the longest-running superhero series at San Diego Comic-Con.
This should not be surprising considering the Action Comics brand has 80 years under its belt as well as 1,000 issues under its name. DC’s Dan DiDio and Jim Lee accepted the award at a press breakfast and had this to say about the remarkable achievement:
“The release of Action Comics #1000 was a watershed moment for fans of comic books, entertainment and popular culture at large. It’s both exciting and humbling to be recognized by Guinness World Records for this achievement and we’re grateful for the legions of fans that have supported Superman and Action Comics for the last 80 years.”
Action Comics #1000 marked the first time a major U.S. superhero comic hit 1,000-issues and was released on April 19th. The next issue will be released on July 25th. Honestly, this is an amazing achievement and I cannot wait to read the issue for myself.
