DC is tapping that nostalgia button once again with the announcement that they are bringing back some fan-favorite characters and titles with DC Rewind. The event will bring back some artists, writers, and heroes like the WildC.A.T.S., who are originally from the WildStorm universe, a different imprint of DC Comics.
“The 1990s brought about some of the greatest moments in comics, including Wildstorm’s debut, Batman/Spawn crossovers, The Death of Superman and amazing covers that were reflective of the unique time in history. This November, DC is celebrating everything 90s with new Wildstorm and WildC.A.T.s comic series, special variant covers, reprints of classic comics and more,” DC said on their website.
WildC.A.T.S. writer Matthew Rosenberg said, “WildC.A.T.S. has always been a mix of everything I love in comics.”
He added, “From the very first issue it exploded off the pages with the coolest characters, the most gorgeous art, the craziest ideas, and it was never afraid to be subversive, go harder, and push things further than its contemporaries. Now we’re smashing all of that good stuff full speed into the heart of the DC Universe. I’d say we’re going to be respectful and try not to break things…but that would be a lie.”
November will also see the release of variant covers done in the 90s style for titles like ‘Action Comics’, ‘Batman Incorporated,’ ‘The Flash,’ and ‘Catwoman.’
They also announced the release of ‘Batman/Spawn: Classic Collection,’ a graphic novel featuring the crossover events involving the Dark Knight and the former king of Hell.
“Fans won’t want to miss this collection, in print for the first time in years, when it is available at comic book stores on November 15, ahead of the release of the highly anticipated Batman/Spawn from Todd McFarlane and Greg Capullo on December 16,” they said.
McFarlane released a teaser for the upcoming Batman/Spawn crossover on his Twitter:
