Here I am… already at the 600th Superman collectible to be added to this virtual exhibit. In honor of that… I bring you this!
This is a copy of Action Comics number 600 published in 1988 by DC Comics when Superman was celebrating his 50th birthday. It contains multiple stories by numerous writers and artists.
The first story, written by John Byrne and illustrated by Byrne and George Perez, begins with that awkward kiss and exchange between Superman and Wonder Woman. The story quickly soars headlong into an adventure on Olympus where the two heroes are deep in a deception by none other than the evil Darkseid which eventually pits the two against each other. However, the deception backfires on Darkseid when he discovers that Superman and Wonder Woman were pretending to battle in order to find the source of the mayhem.
What follows are great stories by John Byrne and Roger Stern, and art by Kurt Schaffeberger, Dick Giordano, Curt Swan, Murphy Anderson, and Mike Mignola, and more. There are also some astounding pin-up pages by Linda Medley, Art Adams, Jon Bogdanove, Kevin Maguire, Dave Gibbons, Mike Zeck, and Walt Simonson.
