This past weekend at WonderCon, VP of Sales, Bob Wayne, announced RETRO-ACTIVE. Published throughout July and August 2011, these are exactly the kinds of one-shots people often associate with summer. RETRO-ACTIVE reunites classic writers and artists with classic characters Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, and Justice League of America, returning to the interpretations they are best known for. Each of these series will have 3 one-shots that pay homage respectively to the‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s.
Finally, the “lost” Bernie Wrightson Batman story has arrived. Written by veteran Ron Marz with inks by the masterful Kevin Nowlan, the story pits the Dark Knight against Solomon Grundy and features full-page illustrations throughout the issue. But that’s not all. BATMAN: HIDDEN TREASURES also features a newly-colored Wrightson and Len Wein classic, “Night of the Bat,” which originally appeared in SWAMP THING #7. Both stories feature colors by acclaimed artist Alex Sinclair. BATMAN: HIDDEN TREASURES hits today. [gallery link="file"]
