DC Reveals Details for Action Comics #1001 and Superman #1

DC Comics has released an advanced look at the upcoming Superman #1 and Action Comics #1001 that will kick off Brian Michael Bendis' run on the titles. ComicBook.com offered a first look at the books, the creative teams, and the covers on Friday.

Picking up where the Man of Steel miniseries left off, Bendis is joined by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado in launching an all-new Superman series. Apparently Superman will have his hands full trying to save the Earth from the Phantom Zone.

Action Comics #1,001 will feature art by Patrick Gleason, who is coming off his fan-favorite run of Superman with Peter Tomasi. This title will deal with Clark Kent's life in Metropolis, as well as the fate of the Daily Planet.
