DC sure knows how to put together an anniversary milestone issue. Action Comics #900 is a super-sized “96 page Spectacular” featuring a beautiful painted cover by David Finch, as well as equally eye-catching variants by Alex Ross and Adam Hughes.
The 51-page lead story by Paul Cornell, Pete Woods and Jesus Merino sees Superman return to ACTION just in time for both the conclusion of the critically-acclaimed “Black Ring” story starring Lex Luthor and the start of the next act of “Reign of Doomsday”.
Artists Dan Jurgens, Rags Morales, Ardian Syaf, Jamal Igle and Gary Frank each contributed their artistic talents to special segments of the main story. But that’s not all…
Action Comics #900 also includes short (some VERY) stories from the creative teams of… Damon Lindelof & Ryan Sook, David Goyer & Miguel Sepulveda, Geoff Johns & Gary Frank and finally Paul Dini & RB Silva. But that’s not all! Also included is a screenplay from Richard Donner and Derek Hoffman that is accompanied by Matt Camp’s storyboards.
“Friday Night in the 21st Century” by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank should have been a few pages longer. As much as I love the spread. I want to hear the story Lois is telling and see how the rest of the party goes. I also really loved Brian Stelfreeze’s “The Evolution of the Man of Tomorrow.” It is a beautiful homage and Stelfreeze brilliantly emulates the art styles of some of Superman’s most well-known artists.
