I got a letter!

One of the three letters I sent to DC was about Wonder Woman, of course. I'd started out with a regular Wonder Woman letter, and ended up asking about stuff like toys, television specials and collections. I realized these were things that the monthly editor wouldn't have control over, so I adjusted and aimed for the top.

I addressed it to Paul Levitz himself.

His answer was in today's (well, yesterday's) mail. It was dated October 17th. That's really fast, since I only sent all three on the morning of the 13th.

He didn't say much specific, just that we'd get more trade paperbacks, and a Showcase edition next year. And to watch for other announcements in the spring.

Nothing on the other two, which were addressed to individual editors, but both were a little tounge-in-cheek. Okay, one was a lot tongue-in-cheek.

Still, the highest level I sent to gave me a personal answer. That's pretty cool.


  1. I first met Paul Levitz a long time ago (we have an odd connection in having had the same high school English teacher, though some years apart) and my experience, as well as that of everyone I've ever spoken to who's worked with the man, is that he's an enormously classy individual working in an industry where real class is often hard to find. So this story doesn't exactly surprise me, but it pleases me no end to have still more evidence he is still that guy.

  2. I wonder if he was so pleased by actually recieving a LETTER instead of an e-mail, that he couldn't contain himself. So, congratulations.

  3. I wrote a letter to Mr. Levitz when I had this problem, and he sent me a very nice response promptly and my problems all went away. I was and am impressed.
