The Library of Congress will celebrate the 1,000th issue of seminal DC comic book series Action Comics, a commemoration of 80 years of Superman, with a live interview featuring two DC legends. Former publisher and president of DC, Paul Levitz, will join famed DC writer and artist Dan Jurgens, known for his work on the Superman series and the pop culture phenomenon The Death of Superman, for a conversation about the history of superhero comics, the writers and artists who create comics and the legacy of DC’s iconic Superman character. Levitz and Jurgens will be interviewed by Michael Cavna, creator of the Eisner-nominated “Comic Riffs” column for The Washington Post.
DC Entertainment will publish a new hardcover book, Action Comics: 80 Years of Superman, this spring as part of the celebration of the 1,000th issue of Action Comics—the longest continually published comic book of its kind in history, the series that introduced Superman to the world and the title that launched the superhero genre.
Thursday's live event at the Library of Congress coincides with Awesome Con in Washington D.C., which begins this Friday. This special live event will take place tomorrow at 7pm ET, and you can watch it right here.
