DC Reveals Creative Teams for 1990s RetroActive One-Shots


At the start of April, DC announced that they would be launching the RetroActive One-shot project, which is set to reunite classic writers and artists with classic characters like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, and Justice League of America - returning to the interpretations they are best known for (see here for the full story).

At the time of announcement, they were only willing to reveal the writers of each one-shot, and left fans guessing as to who the artists would be.

Two weeks ago, DC revealed the artists involved in the six 1970s themed one-shots (see here), then last week they announced the artists involved in the six 1980s themed one-shots (see here). Now we finish up the list with all of the artists involved with the 1990s one-shots, which you can find listed in the issue solicitations below, along with each issue’s writer.

The 1990s one-shots are set to be released in early August. Each of these new 26-page stories will be followed by a classic story from its era by the same writer.

Fan-favorite creative team of writer Louise Simonson and artist Jon Bogdanove come back together to tell a lost tale of the Man of Steel. As Lex Luthor slowly loses his mind, he subsequently hatches a scheme that could both increase his wealth and kill Superman. Can he successfully kill two birds with one stone? Not if Clark Kent has anything to say about it.
