    LOL my man you already had your cover. I would have to put the second Jurgens before the second Lee.

    The trade dresses for the retro variants:



    Also, if it wasn't clear, it seems all versions are on a glossy cardstock cover, prestige format.

    Well I just bought myself the 80year deluxe special that also has unpublished stories from 1945 among other things. I'm a little excited to start reading but won't have time until tomorrow.

    I've got another week to go until that bad boy (and #1000 itself, of course) is in my hands.

    Well, clearly they biased heavily towards the logos based most on the original - the short-lived 1991 logo being the most obvious for that, avoiding the much-longer lived series of "SUPERMAN ɪɴ ᴀᴄᴛɪᴏɴ ᴄᴏᴍɪᴄs" logos that stretched into the 2000s, until 2004 - and to having as many different variations within that. Which leads to at least one blatant trade-dress anachronism, with the 80s cover showing Pre-Crisis/early-80s versions of the characters (especially Lois) but using the Post-Crisis/late-80s logo (since the period-accurate logo is also being used on Steranko's 70s cover). At least the 50s cover is well done (mostly - they didn't reconstruct the actual "Featuring..." used), but the 30s cover completely fails at the period, between the anachronistic Superman costume and the see-through logo background.

    Oh, and they didn't fix Lois' hair colour on the 90s cover...

    I never thought I'd see the bullet logo again.

    The Jim Lee one is awful imo.

    With the trade dress in play, it's definitely down to Bermejo or Allred; Allred's got the better cover, Bermejo the more timelessly iconic one (even if it's not as much so as I'd like it to be). Of all things, the DC logo itself might sway me; I have some fondness for the 00s 'toothpaste' look, but the version that actually puts all of DC under Superman's umbrella certainly feels more appropriate for the occasion.

    It's genuinely bizarre how ugly that is. His own simultaneously-done cover for the 80th anniversary hardcover is really good!
    You can follow me on Twitter or Tumblr, if more of my opinions sounds like something you'd like.

    Since I pre order my comics via an online subscription, I'm realising I'll probably get the regular Jim Lee cover. That's a shame, if I could pick one it would be the Forbidden Planet Jock variant, the Lee Bermajo 2000s variant or the Patrick Gleason cover.

    So far I've pre-ordered:

    - Steve Rude 30's
    - Michael Cho 40's
    - Mike Allred 60's
    - Joshua Middleton 80's
    - Dan Jurgens DF Exclusive

    I'm really debating if I should even get the Jim Lee basic cover, simple for the fact that I don't care for it at all. I initially wanted it because it was THE cover to #1000, but, it's just so bland.

    I really like the Jim Lee variant. Does anyone know where I can get it? Thanks.

    Meh. Just get the one(s) you like.

    It's the official "main" cover. Any shop which has the issue at all is likely to have it.
