We've already looked at a bunch of names of creators associated with what we are dubbing the DC Comics Band-Aid, an event expected to be announced at San Diego Comic Con headed up by Marie Javins. Previously we'd mentioned Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Grey, Scott Lobdell and Fabian Nicieza as being attached.

- Fabian Nicieza
- David Gallaher
- Adam Beechen
- Larry Hama
- Marv Wolfman
- Dan Abnett
- Len Wein
- Jeff Parker
