Go, Read: Paul Levitz on Superman

imageI've already had one friend tell me I'm nuts for thinking this, but I sort of liked this short interview (Part 1, Part 2) with Paul Levitz about Superman. I'm not sure I can say why. The President of DC Comics seems a bit more relaxed than usual, I guess, openly admitting the modest audience for superhero comic books. He also conveniently lets fly with two pieces of well-known but always worth repeating DC Comics 101: 1) many of the people there feel like caretakers of these iconic properties, a key to understanding the company's culture, and 2) they are also responsible for the merchandising of their characters, a key to understanding how they operate within the larger Time Warner media giant.
