At this afternoon's DC Nation panel at San Fransisco's Wondercon, Dan Didio announced RetroActive, a series of one-shots reuniting DC's iconic characters with the writers most famous for guding them through the 70's, 80's and 90's. While no shipping dates were announced, it was revealed that each book would have 26 pages of new story, 20 pages of classic reprints and be priced at $4.99 each.
The writers of these special issues are as follows:
Superman: Martin Pasko, Marv Wolfman, Louise Simonson
Batman: Len Wein, Mike W. Barr, Alan Grant
Wonder Woman: Denny O'Neil, Roy Thomas, William Meissner-Loebs
Flash: Cary Bates, William Meissner-Loebs, Brian Augustyn
Green Lantern: Denny O'Neil, Len Wein, Ron Marz
The JLA: Cary Bates, Gerry Conway, Keith Giffen & JM DeMatteis
Excellent. I will be checking out most of these, ESPECIALLY the Giffen/DeMatteis Justice League. Coincidentally, I've been reading the Simonson era of Superman in recent months...
