DC Comics to Commemorate Len Wein with The DC Universe by Len Wein Hardcover in 2019

In February, DC Comics will pay tribute to comic book editor and writer Len Wein, co-creator of Swamp Thing and Wolverine, in a massive hardcover called The DC Universe by Len Wein, reprinting his classic work for the publisher — as well as his final work for the Swamp Thing Winter Special.

Renowned writer Len Wein, the co-creator of Marvel's Wolverine and DC's Swamp Thing, is joined by an all-star array of legendary artists as his greatest works at DC are collected in this anthology graphic novel!

From the Teen Titans to Swamp Thing, Len Wein had his fingerprints on just about every aspect of DC Comics. As a writer and later editor, Wein helped to innovate some of the company's most groundbreaking titles, including work on Watchmen, New Teen Titans, Justice League of America, Saga of the Swamp Thing and more.

Now, for the first time ever, his greatest stories are collected together as a salute to one of DC's most important creators of all time. This sensational story of the DC Universe is told from the dawn of superheroes, starring Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, the Justice League of America, the Teen Titans and more! Collects Teen Titans #18 & 20, Phantom Stranger #20-24, JLA #100-102, Action Comics #419-420, #422-423, #425-426, #429, #432, DC Comics Presents #27-29, JLA 80-Page Giant #2, DC Retroactive: Green Lantern – The '80s: Big Betrayal #1, and Swamp Thing Winter Special #1.

It will be published on February 26th, 2019 for $34.99 at 384 pages long. Might they change the following image, currently being used to promote the book in listings for the cover? Though I know Len would have got a chuckle out of it.
