Letters pages were once common in comic books and gave readers the chance to weigh in on stories, heroes and villains and make requests about what should happen next. Those pages gradually disappeared not only in DC's comics, but those of other companies, as the Internet, e-mail, Facebook and Twitter all but rendered them obsolete.
David Hyde, DC Comics' vice president of publicity, quietly announced the change Monday in DC's own blog, The Source. Reaction was positive, with one reader remarking that "as a fan of DC Comics since boyhood (more years than I care to remember), one of the things I looked most forward to was the letter page, so very excited."
I can't believe it's been since 2002 that we haven't had these! Have any of you ever had Letters to the Editor published in your favorite comics? Remember Uncle Elvis and T.M. Maple?
