^ Or last October as established in the relaunch thread. DiDio at the SDCC stated "October". He didn't state exactly when Oct.
No, but there was reporting back in November of 2009
about a big deal hush-hush creators retreat two years ago where cell phones, etc weren't allowed and big doings - including a Johns/Lee Justice League - were discussed. I'll assume based on the contemporaneous report that this was the genesis of it all and that Didio simply misspoke on the fly much later or that Newsarama misreported.
