In Retroactive we take you on a visual comic cover tour of the past covering all the covers for a particular series. Each entry will cover an entire year and we’ll always have one comic from DC and one comic from Marvel. At the end of each edition of Retroactive one of us will select our overall favourite cover for that year for each series. Last time on Retroactive we covered Batman Confidential 2007 and Generation X 1999. If you need a refresher, just click HERE. Below you’ll find the two series that wwayne is currently covering. Click on that specific logo to be instantly taken directly to that series. The last section is reserved for wwayne’s Top Picks from each year.

Love the cover for Batman Confidential #11 eith the Joker standing in the light of the Bat-Signal. That slight spatter of blood is very ominous as well! Had to pick Geneation X #52 simply because it reminded me of the recent Spiderverse with who appears in the bottom right hand corner! Love that little character!!! Great retroactive!
“That slight spatter of blood is very ominous as well!” Nice catch Paul, that had passed me by! My runner – up is Batman Confidential # 19, though. The gorgeous background deserves a medal alone; I also love the fact that this cover compels us to open the issue up to know what’s written on the notebook Batgirl and Catwoman are fighting for.
“Had to pick Geneation X #52 simply because it reminded me of the recent Spiderverse with who appears in the bottom right hand corner!” The cover you chose is my runner – up, because the taglines are extremely enticing. Bronze medal for Generation X # 54: an action packed image that could have won the gold medal in any other year. Thank you for providing your picks! 🙂
Some great choices Wayne, I nearly chose Batman Confidential #19 for the same reason as you. Cheers and have a great weekend.
