Right now, you might be thinking, "Weird Comics History? Where are Reggie and Chris?!?" Well, it couldn't be that I kidnapped them and locked them in a closet....right? Right! Nope, I just wanted to write this article and had no idea what else to call it. Just remember, the following article contains information, opinion and lame attempts at humor that represent my own and not those of Reggie and Chris. I will not be held responsible for any inaccuracies, misspellings, misquotes and/or jokes that fall flat without even a smile. You have been warned and now you're ready to learn all about the "Event" that fell between Flashpoint and the New 52...DC Retroactive.
The DC Retroactive Event happened in the window between the end of Flashpoint and the start of the New 52 during July and August of 2011. It was a series of one-shots featuring Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Flash and the Justice League grouped into three decades...The 70's, 80's and 90's. To further the nostalgia factor, DC brought back popular creative teams for each of the issues and also included a reprint of a story from that time period.
