    Default Complete List of Creator Owned Titles Taking Place in The DCU

    Believe it or not, there were a slew of DC Comics which took place in their universe, but were owned by the creators.

    Titles that come to mine include:

    Young Heroes in Love by Dan Raspler
    Sovereign Seven by Chris Claremont
    The Monolith by Jimmy Palmiotti
    Fallen Angel by Peter David

    I'm looking for a comprahensive list.

    The version of Bob, the Galactic Bum where Lobo appears. (Some versions, not published by DC, replace him with another character.)

    Famously not creator-owned, unless there's some definition of the term that I'm missing.

    I was unaware that any creator-owned titles existed in either of the Big Two so this is pretty interesting stuff.

    Also John Constantine appears in Mobfire, a Vertigo miniseries from 1994.

    Let's see (rummaging through the mental database):
    Bloodhound? (Checks)... Yup, looks like Dan Jolley took him to Dark Horse, so that counts.
    Jack Marshall, Hacker? (Checks)... Unclear if he's creator-owned or not.
    Peter Cannon?... he was officially in the DCU for a quick cup of coffee before wandering off to other publishers, so he counts.
    Simon Dark and Mother Panic?... Looks like they're owned by DC, so no.

    I assume you’re excluding inter-company crossovers like the Spawn and Savage Dragon books from the 90’s.

    According to Wikipedia, the reprint in Judge Dredd Megazine replaced Lobo with a butch lesbian named Asbo.

    I know you mean the obscure comics character, but if you click on his name in your post it takes you to an accounting software site.

    Clearly not DC but The Boys by Garth Ennis was on WildStorm for five or six issues before it became a creator-owned book with later issues are published by Dynamite.
