Last week, we showed you all the covers for the 1970’s books in this summer’s RETROACTIVE series.
Today, take a look at all the covers for the 1980’s books:
DC RETROACTIVE: SUPERMAN – THE ‘80s cover by Dan Jurgens, Livesay, & Carrie Strachan.
SUPERMAN #709 provides an exhilarating new twist on the classic question of who’s faster: Superman or Flash? Who will outrun the other and what the heck is that thing on Flash’s head that’s making him speak Kryptonian and recite the planet’s history?
Written by J. Michael Straczynski and Chris Roberson, with artwork by Eddy Barrows & J.P. Mayer and a cover by John Cassaday, SUPERMAN #709 continues the Man of Steel’s “Grounded” storyline -- this time bringing Superman to the vast landscapes of Boulder, Colorado.
Here are some variant covers to close out your day. First up? Alex Garner 's cover of WONDER WOMAN #608. Then, as always, Kevin Maguire delivers a great cover to JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST #21. [Updated] Yildiray Cinar (not Scott Kolins) has a variant to FLASH #10 as the prelude to FLASHPOINT continues. Last and certainly not least? A stunning variant of BATMAN AND ROBIN #21 by Tony S. Daniel.

As December winds down and folks make resolutions for the New Year, it's not uncommon to daydream about how things might have worked out differently. What decisions do you regret? What would you make differently, if you had a chance to change your life?
FLASH 8, on sale next Wednesday, takes those questions one bold step further. What would you do if you could actually go back in time? Would you be a better person? Would you work on your relationship with your family? Would you tell the woman you love how you really feel?
A hero is often defined by his or her villains. And few heroes have villains as cool and colorful and flat out weird as the Flash.
The Rogues define the Flash and he defines them: Mirror Master, Heat Wave, Weather Wizard, the Trickster and most especially the two Captains Captain Cold and Captain Boomerang.
In FLASH 7, the spotlight falls on Captain Boomerang. How did Boomererang first fall in with the Rogues? Why has he returned from the dead? And does he still have what it takes to be a Rogue?
