Hot on the heels of DC’s release of “Of Tomorrow,” the Action Comics #1000 story by Tom King, Clayy Mann, Jordie Bellaire, and John Workman, today DC Comics released a new Action #1000 story for fans to read for free right now.

In “Five Minutes,” Superman finds himself on an incredibly tight deadline at the Daily Planet. Does he have the time and ability to juggle his day job as Clark Kent with his freelance work as Superman? That’s what writer Louise Simonson (The Death of Superman), Artist Jerry Ordway (Superman: the Man of Steel), Dave McCaig (Action Comics), and Carlos M. Mangual (Nightwing) are here to tell you!

Action Comics #1000 promises to be an exciting celebration of an incredible milestone for single issue superhero comics. This special issue will be 80 pages and feature works from “legendary creators like Dan Jurgens, Peter J. Tomasi, Pat Gleason and Marv Wolfman, plus the DC debut of Brian Michael Bendis.”

Read “Five Minutes” at DC’s official reader site.

Action Comics #1000 hits shelves on April 18th for $7.99.
