Adventure Comics is a comic book series published by DC Comics from 1935 to 1983. It ran for 503 issues (471 of those after the title changed to Adventure Comics), making it the fifth-longest-running DC series, behind Detective Comics, Action Comics, Superman and Batman. It was revived in 2009 by writer Geoff Johns with the Conner Kent incarnation of Superboy headlining the title's main feature, and the Legion of Super-Heroes in the back-up story. The first issue of the new run of Adventure Comics was released on August 12, 2009, and features watermarked numbering marking it as both #1 and #504, thus continuing the original numeration of the series concurrently with the volume 2 numeration. The indicia of the comic book also reflects this dual numbering. Prior to that, in February 2009 DC released Issue #0 which reprinted the first Superboy and the first Legion of Superheroes stories and included the Geoff Johns-written "Origins and Omens" story. That preview issue completely threw off an uptight reviewer at IGN who it seemed couldn't care less about the classic Silver Age reprints and who thought it was related to the Superman issue current at the time and the then upcoming Blackest Night event. That just goes to show how little "reviewers" sometimes know, for this title has now hordes of fans and, as shown on the cover of this week's issue #4, an award as well.
