This afternoon during the DC Nation Live panel at WonderCon, DC Entertainment co-publisher Dan DiDio announced Retro-Active, a wave of one-shots that will pay homage to the spirit of the Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, and Justice League of America stories of the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s.According to DC, the writer breakdown is as follows:

Batman
Len Wein (’70s), Mike W. Barr (’80s), and Alan Grant (’90s)
