the Longest-Running Superhero Comic Series in History

In June of 1938, DC Comics unveiled the first issue of Action Comics, which would ultimately have a massive impact on the worlds of entertainment and popular culture as we know it.

Today, 80 years later, DC celebrates the one-thousandth issue of Action Comics, making it the longest continually published superhero comic book in history.

Having written or drawn most every major title published by DC Comics and Marvel Comics, Dan Jurgens is recognized by fans everywhere as a major creative force. At DC Comics, Dan worked on Flash Gordon, Green Arrow, the Justice League of America, and is best known as the writer behind The Death of Superman, one of the top-selling comics of all time.
