In fact, it's so big that it's kind of a milestone for the entire American comics industry - maybe even the entire American entertainment industry, at this point. Swan is one of history's most iconic Superman artists, giving the character his signature style throughout the so-called "Silver Age" of comic books - that would be the "50s, '60s, '70s... basically everything up until Wolfman and artist George Pérez radically restructured the DC Universe with Crisis on Infinite Earths!".

Via DC's press release, Lee will also be joining writer Brian Michael Bendis on a 10-page story within Action Comics #1,000 that will mark Bendis' first DC story under his new exclusive agreement.

Superman's costume was changed with the release of the New 52 in 2011 and the Man of Steel movie in 2013.

And as you'd expect, DC Comics is pulling out all of the stops in celebration of the landmark issue, and thanks to Entertainment Weekly we've got a look at Jim Lee's cover to the issue, which sees the return of Superman's classic red trunks. Although the designer is unclear, Action Comics #1000's cover by DC Co-Publisher Jim Lee, inker Scott Williams, and colorist Alex Sinclair shows off a mix of familiar elements with some modern nuances.

Scepticism over Donald Trump's medical report leads to 'girther' movement

Is Jessica Mulroney the woman who will choose Meghan Markle's wedding gown?
Out of all the decisions that go into wedding planning, choosing the dress and designer are arguably the most important. In May, she'll marry Britain's Prince Harry , and you can bet that her new title will come with actual gems.

It's a reunion seven years in the making: Superman and his red trunks will be together again in 2018.

Classic Superman creators Louise Simonson and Jerry Ordway will also share a tale, with more contributors set to be announced at a later date. "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".

Speaking of creators, celebrating an anniversary this momentous should also mean honoring the men who originally brought Superman into the world: Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. Superman director Richard Donner is reuniting with Geoff Johns for a story drawn by Olivier Coipel, while Batman: The Animated Series scribe Paul Dini will team up with legendary artist José Luis García-López.
